Liked: Absolutely the best hostel in Madrid! Always something going on, free walking tours, pub crawls, tapas tours, free sangria, free paella, and everything was fantastic. Staff are amazing, so friendly and fun, location is perfect, I definitely recommend this hostel!

Disliked: The locks on the door were a bit of a pain to figure out at first, but if that's not a first world problem I don't know what is

Liked: It was very comfortable, clean and roomy. The location was also good, not too far away from the Central Train Station. The personnel was friendly and all in all we had a good service. There was a communal kitchen with some kitchen stuff where you could cook something. We had free Wifi and there were many possibilities in the entrance hall and the corridors where you could sit down and relax.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: It was a youth hostel and was in the center of the city, which was great. The free breakfast was just plain cereal and toast, which was good to have but it wasn't anything special.

Disliked: The atmosphere was not as nice as I thought it would be. The internet and computers were never working. The beds were not very comfy and were clearly outdated.

Liked: The location is great, very close to many museums and within walking distance of the majority of tourist attractions. The staff were very helpful and accommodating (I was in a weird situation where I was staying by myself for one night and then staying at the hostel the next night with friends, and they let me check in early the next day, which was very convenient.) The building is good, definitely some wear-and-tear, but no more than I would expect from a hostel. It didn't feel unclean (especially compared to college dorms, which I'm used to.) There were some fun extras like free sangria and paella, which were served way later than advertised, but still a bonus. The WiFi worked well in the common areas, as advertised, and occasionally the signal reached the upper floors. Overall, a good experience and I would recommend it to young travelers on a budget.

Disliked: Because the target audience is young people, it got a bit noisy, especially at night with people coming and going. The building has definitely been well-used, but nothing about it felt particularly dirty or unsafe.

Liked: It is a nice, centrally located and quite large hostel. The reception staff are friendly and ready to offer advice on where to go, what to see and where to eat in the city. There is a free walking tour and some other events taking place almost daily at the hostel.

Disliked: There are plenty of bathrooms (three showers and stalls in male and female rooms) on the 1st and 3rd floor, but the 2nd floor has two isolated bathrooms at each end (plus some rooms have private bathrooms). If you're sleeping in a room next to these single bathrooms sometimes at night people taking shower or flushing toilets might interfere with your sleep. Also cleaning staff might sometimes be a bit rude and loud even if people are sleeping in the room.

Liked: It was close to the train station. The staff were friendly and made excellent recommendations. On Friday and Saturday we got a free sangría and the chance to try homemade paella. We had lockers that closed with this cool watch-like key (which also served as your room key and your access to the building). I'd definitely stay here again next time I am in Madrid.

Disliked: The wifi wasn't really great except in the lobby.

Liked: Amazing location and very secure

Disliked: Checkout was very badly organised, it took 30 mins just to hand back our room keys and the staff member behind the desk was very rude and very unhelpful! She couldn't even direct us to where we could get onto the Hop on Hop off Madrid city bus's - she told us to use the internet. In saying that we had a very unsatisfied experience on checkout and that particular taff member - I must say that on arrival and the guy behind the desk that evening was amazing, very helpful and funny.
