Liked: The hostel owner is a friendly, easy-going man. You can feel at home at this hostel, it's clean, calm and cosy. The location is more than fine, it's like 3minute walk to the cathedral. I recommend this hostel to all who value peace, calm and comfort without paying too much.

Disliked: Shower and toilet cabins could be more spacious. Nevertheless, they are clean and work well, so it's only the matter of comfort.

Liked: Lots of people and rooms and yet enough free space to feel comfortable. Friendly staff. Clean premises. Mostly peaceful.

Disliked: Not a problem per se but you get passively "kicked out" of the main room at around 1AM (lights closing progressively until near-total darkness). The wi-fi is not working very well in the living room (but still working enough not to be a real problem either).

Liked: Really nice and helpful staff and has a lot on offer! i went on the day trip to Toledo for 20euro and it was a fantastic place!! It would have been more expensive to do it on your own, the driver was so friendly and chatty and he dropped us off in the centre of town. Hostel lacked atmosphere, but we talked to people in our rooms and the common area and had some really good nights out! it's in a great location.

Disliked: Could make the common area a bit clearer and more open as we didn't know about it at first, neither did other people.

Liked: I liked the location of this hostel - it was fairly central with only a short walk to most of the major tourist attractions.

Disliked: I hated that the wifi was only available in the reception area and that the connection was terrible and continually dropped out. They had a lounge area downstairs, but it was always empty because there was no wifi signal. The reception area also played really loud music all the time, even in the morning, which made it impossible to call/Skype people around New Years - which was my only way to stay in touch with family/friends over the period. The kitchen was also filthy. And my final gripe with this place was that they 'cleaned' the reception area at 10:30am and kicked everyone out at this time regardless of whether they were eating breakfast or that it was the only functional space in the hostel. I would not recommend this hostel to anybody unless you want to party all night and sleep all day.

Liked: Friendly and helpful staff, clean rooms with comfortable beds and great facilities. Great atmosphere, with two communal areas, one always full of people and the other more quiet. Use of kitchen and computer facilities. Twenty-four hour reception area so there was always someone available if you needed assistance. Only a short walk to Sol, where many of the shops, bars and restaurants are located. One of the best hostels I've stayed in!

Liked: Extremely lively atmosphere with lots of friendly travellers. The staff did an amazing job of helping us explore Madrid. There were activities planned every night, from the infamous Bar Crawl to tapas crawl and flamenco and they were all very good value.There was lots of common space.

Disliked: Rooms were huge and lacked character, but this is to be expected of such a hostel. Showers were in the same room as the bathroom, and only one for the 12-person room, so it was very hard to find time for either a shower or just using the bathroom!

Liked: Breakfast was amazing, you are having breakfast like a local with ¨chocolate¨ and churros. Staff very friendly. You have computers and wifi for free. The kitchen is full equipated to prepare handmade food. It is close to the metro station. When I was staying in Madrid I decided to visit Portugal for a few days and I could put my big backpack in their luggage room for free.

Liked: This place has it all! It is the cleanest best run hostel I have ever been in and I have been in lots. As a female traveller who generally travels alone I am careful where I stay and this was great. They served (2 euros) paella last night. Amazing! Well located, impecably clean, good area to talk in at night. Thank you las Musas

Liked: Place is located in the centre. I arrived at 6:30am and they let me check in. They offer good activities. I went to the flamenco show which was great, then did the pub crawl after. Patricia was a great guide for the pub crawl, she made sure you knew what was happening and the best deals for drinks. At the end she made sure everyone knew how to get back to the hostels

Disliked: Jonathan left no negative feedback.
