Mad Hostel is located in a ‘corrala’, a typical building of old Madrid. Our hostel features adjoining rooms accessed by interior balconies which overhang a central courtyard or patio.

We’re right in the centre of Madrid, only a 10-minute walk to the most well-known museums in Spain (el Prado and la Reina Sophia), the city's main square (la Puerta del Sol) and some of the hottest nightlife in Europe.

Our hostel is unique – it’s charmingly Madrileño and yet has modern and new facilities.

Here you’ll find everything necessary for a comfortable stay in Madrid. We pride ourselves on having the lowest prices in Madrid and we offer rooms for two, four or six people, with either a private bathroom or a shared bathroom.

A free breakfast is provided every day as well as Wi-Fi. A kitchen and a beautiful terrace are also available in the hostel.

Not sure what to do in Madrid? Our staff can help! Free sightseeing tours, tapas tours, pub crawls, and many other activities are available each day for your enjoyment.

Do you want to live like a Madrileño? Do you want to make the most of your time in Madrid? Do you want to have a clean, comfortable, inexpensive place to call home while in Madrid? If so, Mad Hostel is the place to go!

The truth is. It’s a pretty MAD offer!
