Fall head over heels for the capital at I Love Madrid. When we say we’re central, we really mean it – in fact, we’re the most central hostel in all of Spain! Puerta del Sol can be seen from our front door – that’s a biggie ticked off before you check in. Cool off in our air-conditioned bar, snack on tapas and cerveza and make use of the free Wi-Fi to research the sights you can’t miss – or the nearest churros stand. Tag onto our free walking tour if you fancy walking round with your hostel buddies.


From the airport, you can be at our door in 41 minutes. Take the Airport Express bus and get off at Plaza de Cibeles. From there, walk via Calle de Alcalá to Puerta del Sol, one of the liveliest squares in the city. We're just a minute's walk from there. For typical Spanish architecture, wander down the Gran Vía, 7 minutes away by foot. Get your fill of art at the Prado Museum, a 12-minute walk, or shop for dinner at San Miguel Market, 8 minutes on foot. El Rastro flea market is a 15 minute stroll from us for unique souvenirs.

Rooms and Dorms

Take the weight off and hop in the elevator up to your room. We have mixed and female-only dorms whether you’re seeing Madrid solo or as a group. No need to worry about your backpack, we have secure lockers to store all your luggage in – don't forget your padlock!

Extras and activities

Pick up local ingredients at the market and prep a fresh salad in our kitchen (we have microwaves if you fancy something hot and quick). Our communal dining tables give you somewhere to share stories and a bottle of wine or spread out your free city map. Backpack bulging with laundry? Pop a load in our washing machine to freshen up – we have towel hire, too. Jobs done, settle down with a film in the lounge.

    Comfortable beds, perfect location, extremely nice staff. Our only complaint was that they charged us 5€/person to leave our backpacks there while we were waiting for our flight. Other than that, we had a great experience!

    The hostel was in a great location and the staff were very friendly. It was slightly annoying that everyone in our dorm kept weird hours and would go to bed at 18:00 and not wake up until after 12:00. I wouldn't stay here if you are a solo Traveller trying to meet people as everyone kept to themselves and there weren't any planned daily hostel activities. However, it was a great place for the cost of the rooms and it was very clean!

    Overall a good hostel. The lockers weren’t big enough to fit my bag and the lock I had didn’t work with them. I opted for the 8 bed mixed dorm and was the only female with 7 males for all of the nights I was there. Seems to me like they could have put a little more effort into putting the same genders together. The rooms were clean as were the bathrooms and living space. Good location.

    Great location. Cold, and I mean COLD showers. Staff was somewhat friendly, but definitely thought some of the other guests were more helpful than the staff. The front door locks, but no locks on room doors and then hardly any place to put your bag if you have a backpack/suitcase.

    There is a big issue with their water heating system. No hot water available at all! Super hot rooms, I was sweating while sleeping. Once you check out, they will not let you keep your luggage for free at all. Staff was super sweet but the hostel was equally malfunctioning

    We booked 4 nights at this hostel but left after the first without a refund because it was so horrible... There was a homeless older man in the room that smelt exactly like a week old pile of dog poop, he was incredibly creepy and only stayed in the room at all times while starring directly into your eyes. The ONLY lock in the entire hostel is outside and everyone has to remember to lock the door. No lock in the hostel rooms, bathrooms, showers, even the shower itself. I felt so dirty being ther
