Overview

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.

Location

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.

    Great location and cheap, kitchen closes early and you have to be quiet everywhere past 11pm so no night life at the hostel. Nice and clean and good staff

    Great hostel overall! Super friendly and helpful staff (thanks Pedro!). There’s a stove, big fridges, toaster, etc in the kitchen and common room. Fun atmospehre with some very nice people and the bathrooms and showers were extremely clean (and enough of them). Location hard to beat but there was no street noise in our room. Luggage can be stored at €5/pp My only complaints are that in our room wifi was non-existent (it was okay in the other parts of the hostel) and that the beds were squeaky

    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!

    To be honest, the hostel itself was nice, but I have stayed in better hostels for less. Advice would be to not book a hostel when it's a holiday weekend, as that is why I feel I did not get value for my money. Hostel staff were nice, I just couldn't wrap my brain around all the prices. 3 euros for towel. 5 euro to hold bags after checkout. 62 euros per night. It didn't stand out enough for those prices. Thank you anyway.

    This place is average. Not really good spot if you wake up easily, there is so much noise in the morning coming from outside in the street, from garbage pickup to the local bar receiving kegs of beer for what seemed like a half hour at a time. The showers didn't have warm water, more like luke-warm at best. The vibe was really drab and the common area didn't have a control for the lights. The guy who worked there was super nice but that was about it.

    Clean enough, nice enough staff, great location! No luggage storage, quite noisy from being above a big street.

    Though kept relatively clean, the facilities were in poor condition primarily the bathrooms. You had to beat everyone else in the hostel to the shower if you wanted hot water. It felt pretty overpriced for the quality of the place. It had a good location for the New Year's Eve festivities but there were nicer hostels in the same area with better pricing. Travelers should be aware that the majority of staff only speak Spanish or Portuguese, but you'll manage to figure things out.

    Good location. The hostel needs some repairs, seems unfinished. One of the receptionists spoke no English at all, couldn't even point out the hostel on the map when I asked. REALLY strange clientele- lot of older people, mayne in their 40s/50s, gave wierd vibes. I could see into the mens toilets from the hallway, and saw a guy peeing. The hostel is basically one long hallway with dorms coming off of it. Have to open the front door with a key and lock it again everytime you come and go...

    Kitchen is very small and that’s being generous, is a useful as s**t flavoured lollipop. had a weird kinda vibe, blokes had a brawl on the streets at 5:00am everyday which does provide entertainment but is also very loud. Lockers aren’t real, and the showers have windows so you can see other peoples Rodgers. Illegal to have more than one human on a bed at all times. Due to “support” issues. Washing machine is just not existent. Overall, just an average hostel nothing special x
