  • The hostel is very well located and they provide you useful information such as maps and free tours. The breakfast is basic but enough to start your day.

  • First of all, anyone can buzz into this building. The room doors only lock from the inside so if the room is empty, the door is unlocked. Then, the lockers (of which there were only 6 in a 7 person room) could easily be broken into. The least secure hostel I have used. Then there were only 6 plugs in the 7 person room and it was just a power strip by the door. The showers suked too, the shower head weren't even mounted on the walls and the water was either freezing or scalding hot.

  • Location is good however, everything else is a mess. That rude and disrespectful staff! You'll need to pay extra for EVERYTHING :).

  • Cool staff. A really small hostel, however a good one. The building is a little bit scarring at first.

  • Nice and simple hostel. For a short stay totally enough! The location is really in the center, many bars and tapas bars around.

  • The location is pretty good for walking to the major sights. The bathroom is TINY, with no space to move past people if they're standing at the sink and you want to get to/from the showers or toilets. Breakfast is pretty much the same as everywhere else.

  • Nice location, close to Sol (Madrid's center). Good deal, I paid 10 euros for a night, I got what I want, just a bed and a roof. Free breakfast, staffs are nice. Only bad thing would be the building is a little old and beds seem old too, but it does not bother me.

  • Very conveniently located near the Chueca metro station in the heart of Madrid's gay district. It's a pretty easy walk to lots of bars, clubs, restaurants and plenty of attractions. We were here during the summer and it was very hot. Our room did not have a functioning air conditioner but for us that was a minor gripe. The bathroom was clean enough. The kitchen was small but useable. They provide supplies for a simple breakfast but I'd recommend going out for a delicious Spanish Omelette!
