The staff was super friendly, always tried to make everyone feel welcomed, made home meals, and constantly scheduled activities. Would definitely stay again!:) There was bunk beds and no coverage around it for privacy which was different than usual but a nice change! :)

I think overall this hostel couldn’t be in a better location in Madrid. Close to everything you need. The bathrooms were kept up quite well and the staff were very welcoming. The pub crawl made it easy for people to get to know other solo travelers 🙂

I don't write reviews, but this hostel deserves one. The reason why my stay in Madrid was so great was because this hostel does a great job at making sure you are a part of a community. The staff there goes out of their way to be helpful, they always have events such as tours, tapas, and bar crawls. If you are solo travelling this is the place to be. I met so many people and had a wonderful time. When I left the hostel, they still allowed me to go to their events. YOU NEED TO BOOK THIS HOSTEL
