    First of all, this is the best hostel for solo travellers, staff will make you feel at home from the beginning and you can meet and make friends at the daily dinners or at the drinking games they organise. Shoutout to Mati for his constant great attitude towards guests, and kudos o every other member of the crew as well. Secondly, great location right at the center of Madrid. Thirdly, everything is kept clean and in order. Just come stay here if you want to have a good time and make new friends.

    BEST HOSTEL EVER!!!! Best atmosphere, staff, location, everything! BEST place for a solo traveler. Traveled around the globe quite a bit and although Madrid is not my favorite city, this is my favorite hostel to date.

    This was Party Central. There was so much going on, it's right in the middle of town, the people were so friendly and welcoming. However it was pretty loud until 11:30 pm, with the parties. That said, quiet hours are taken very seriously after 23:30 which was nice. All sorts of free food and tours, very safety conscious, plenty of showers and toilets, really a fantastic place, especially for young people. Families were welcomed but maybe not all would love the party.

    Best hostel I've ever stayed at. The first thing people notice when coming to a hostel is of course the reception. The receptionist sat down with me and talked to me for 20 minutes and what to do, where to go, what's good, what's not so good. I felt very informed and ready to start my trip. The hostel even puts on several things to go which made it so much easier to meet and get to know new people which was great for me because I was traveling alone and working on my social skills lol
