    It is a great place, right in the middle of the center a couple minute walk from La Latina and all these amazing restaurants. Great hostel if you are working remotely.

    This is by far one of the best hostels that I've stayed at, hands down! The staff are incredibly friendly and welcoming, the hostel itself is in a prime location and not only are the buildings and rooms great, the atmosphere of the place is incredible. I truly enjoyed my stay and when I go back to Madrid this is now my go-to. I wouldn't want to stay anywhere else!

    I stayed here three separated times and staying here for sure next time im in Madrid!! Love this place, great atmosphere and great great facilities, great price! The only contra could be that theres no kitchen and that the neighborhood can be a little shady at night but never felt insecure so all good! Highly recommended

    THIS HOSTEL IS INCREDIBLE I'm from the United States. I stayed here for about 5 days while I was looking for my apartment in Aranjuez. The employees are SO nice and helpful, the facilities are clean, the people here are SO COOL (from all over the place and I instantly made a bunch of friends), and the food here is fantastic! They have breakfast for like 6 Euros with fruit, pincho de tortilla, bread, cereal, coffee, and more. I'm probably gonna visit here again just to say hello!

    This hostel is outstanding. Amazing rooftop space with sunbeds & a small pool and a lovely common space downstairs. The room was spacious, clean and comfortable. The beds had curtains which is a big plus. The separate shower and toilet in the room were clean and modern. The room also had a small balcony. It felt more like a hotel than a hostel. Only downside was that the rooms were pretty hot and the aircon didn’t work. Would definitely recommend staying here!

    By far one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in! It seems to be very new still (stayed Oct21), which is reflected in the state of the modern furniture. There's lots of space for personal belongings, every room has a small balcony and an en suite with shower and toilet. Sinks are located in the room directly. Don't forget to bring a padlock (though you can buy one for 4,50€); towel rental costs 4€. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful! Only drawback: there is NO KITCHEN OR FRIDGE!

    Great location and facilities. Breakfast is a good option too. I felt at times it was a little hard finding people to talk to, though a lady called Erika came along one morning and took me on a tour with people from other hostels where I met lots of people after that. She was fantastic by the way, so much energy. I'd suggest you try and find her or ask for her.

    Hostel felt more like a hotel. Really nice rooms and bathrooms. Staff were also really friendly! Wasn’t much of an atmosphere, most people kept to themselves. Also room was super hot, no air con so was difficult to sleep

    The Central House is modern, comfortable and in an amazing location. Pros were the spacious room and fantastic shower; cons were that the central air conditioning was set high when we there (in a very warm October weekend!), so the room was too hot at night. However they did lower the central temperature after two days, which contributed to a much better sleep! A special thank you goes to Tanya on the front desk, who went the extra mile and got us into our room early!
