Hostelworld says

Cats Hostel Madrid Sol has been described by Hostelworld guests as a lively party hostel, with a highly-praised Paella Party on weekends, plus a bar downstairs. Our visitors have recommended that guests 'definitely do the walking tour and tapas tour' to get to know Madrid. The hostel is centrally located, near La Latina, Puerta del Sol and the Prado Museum. We like their Andalucían riad-style courtyard, which many reviewers have called 'totally beautiful'.

Property Description

You will find us right in the center of Madrid, where all the cool stuff happens. We stand out from the rest: we have 15 years of experience in helping you vibe with our city. If you are looking to discover the daily frenzy of Madrid and the wild side and people to enjoy it with, Cats Hostel Madrid Sol is your best choice.

From our door, you can easily reach the city's most famous sites, like the beautiful Plaza Mayor, the lively Puerta del Sol, or the world-famous Prado Museum. And after a long day of exploring, there's nothing like arriving to our recently renovated and perfectly prepared facilities for a good rest.

We have a wide variety of common areas for relaxing and socializing with other travellers. You can lie down on our comfortable sofas, watch a movie in the Red Room, or try our own Cats craft beer in our bar... The building will leave you speechless. It was once a 17th-century Spanish palace and still retains its Andalusian patio style.

The rooms are comfortable, functional and prepared for 21st-century travellers, with personal lockers, reading lights, and power and USB outlets. You can choose between shared dormitories from 4 to 12 beds or book your own private room!

And what can we say about our activities? If we have to describe us in a few words, we would say we are a very social hostel. Our most popular activities are the city walking tour, tapas tour, and, of course, our famous pub crawl. Every night, we visit the best bars in the center for the perfect moment to meet other travellers and mix with the locals. But there's even more: depending on the season and the day, we will have karaoke nights, dance lessons, and a paella cooking show. The hard thing won't be choosing what to do, but what not to do!

We offer a breakfast buffet for only for 5 euros, and we have towels to rent for 3 euros. Free Wi-Fi is available in the entire hostel. On departure day, we have secure luggage storage where bags can be left for 2 euros all day, while you get your last tastes of the city!

Our reception is open 24/7, and we will be happy to help you with any of your requests. We are not just a place to sleep, we are a whole travel experience! Our guests agree that our central location, comfortable beds, and a vibrant party atmosphere will leave you wanting more! View House Rules

    TLDR; Great place to stay in Madrid, friendly staff, good atmosphere and superb location. I tested positive for covid during my stay in Cats Hostel. I approached the hostel’s staff, they followed covid regulations/recommendations accordingly. They provided me with a room to myself so that I could isolate, and made sure to check up on me regularly, even though they didn’t have to! Beds are comfortable, breakfast is good and plentiful for its price, and overall good cleanliness. Would recommend.

    fantastic party hostel. for those seeking a lively scene, there are events every night and the common spaces are always full of friendly faces. for those seeking quiet lodging, our room (at least the all female dorm), was tucked away from any rowdiness. the hostel is very well kept with hard working, kind staff. you definitely want to remember to bring flip flops/shower shoes, but that’s just a hostel

    Es hostal divino Muy buena vibra y bien ubicado. Los baños son limpios y las camas tienen seguridad para guardar cosas así como cada puerta. Lo único es que debes traer o comprar una toalla allá

    This is a party hostel, even during the height of covid times. Every night there’s a pub crawl, maybe a bit overpriced (20eu), but probably worth it. For staying in and being careful with covid, it’s not the right place. I unfortunately didn’t get any sleep because or partying and snoring people, which is why I decided to move to a hotel the next night. The staff was super nice about it, they were the highlight of my stay. I also liked the bathrooms and the common areas. For party, go there!

    CATS! Quite literally, as this place reeks of pee as soon as you enter. The smell of urine engulfs you everywhere around the hostel. We were talking to other guests, who said that they were looking for the cats because it smelled like cat pee and food.The smell made it an uncomfortable experience for sure, but after 8 hours of sleeping your body adjusted to the smell. Cool atmosphere, but just dirty. Showers were 10/10 with a rainfall faucet. Very social! Young hostel guests which was awesome

Cats Hostel Madrid Sol says

Our 17th-century Andalusian/Moorish patio definitely sets us apart from other hostels in Madrid. We're the only hostel in the city with its own nightclub, plus we've got free Wi-Fi, air conditioning and more. We're located in the centre of Old Madrid, just one minute from Madrid's best nightlife, which we highly recommend to all our guests. A five-minute walk from the hostel will bring you to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. I especially recommend Puerta del Sol if you're looking for the best shopping area.
Our hostel is ideally suited for travellers looking to have a good time and get to know people from all over the world, while at the same time enjoying maximum comfort and competitive prices. If you want to party and meet new people from all over the world, this is the place to be! We've got tons of activities going on, like karaoke, games, casino, Spanish classes, flamenco and salsa classes, pub crawls, tapas tours, walking tours and much more. Marta, Director of Expansion
