  • My favorite hostel by far! I originally booked a 14 bed room, but was upgraded to a 6 when they had extra rooms available. Great atmosphere and activities as they get everyone involved in the bar with games and a show.

  • This hostel is in a great location, has friendly staff and fairly nice beds. Unfortunately, the bathrooms are tiny and showing their heavy use. Plenty of rust stains and soap scum. Additionally I found that since the hostel was SO big people didn't mingle in the social areas rather generally just kept the themselves or their own groups.

  • Was ok brilliant hall but missed a place to sit at a table when you not wanted to be in the bar. The hall was just amazing. The rooms were full a bit damped because there was no possibility of opening a window

  • More cleanliness in the showers and toilets, sometimes it was just awful to be there.

  • Cat's was an amazing hostel. The staff are very friendly & helpful, the location is perfect for sightseeing, is within a couple of blocks of a short train & subway ride from the airport or train station, has a friendly atmosphere where you can chill out quietly by yourself in the common area or chat up people in the bar. Free walking tours, paella cookouts, and a pretty good bar crawl are a must. Karaoke nights are pretty awesome, and I was called Indiana Jones because of my cowboy hat.

  • Some dorm rooms only have ceiling lights which means the light stays on for most of the night, it would be nicer if all rooms had a small lamp in each bed as it's already the case in some dorms.

  • It is a good spot in Madrid to stay. It is a hostel with atmposphere and a good everyday program for all visitors. So if you like to party, meet people and enjoy a lively time it is a very good choice. The only thing was the quite simple breakfast, but well , for me.not so important. Rather unsatisfiying was the price for a double bed room without bathroom. Here we reach nearly Hotel prices which I see as a little bit overpriced. All in all a very good place!
