Liked: The hostel let us drop off our bags prior to our check in time, which was very convenient. It is also located right near the Opera metro station & the Puerta del Sol metro station, which makes it ideal for easy transportation to key sights in central Madrid. The staff were also very knowledgeable and helpful.

Disliked: There were no towels for drying off your hands in any of the bathrooms or in the kitchen. But otherwise, the hostel was excellent.

Liked: Location was great.

Disliked: Not the nicest place. Kinda dingy, washrooms aren't all that pretty and neither are the rooms. The place just has an overall kinda dirty feel to it.

Liked: The location was excellent.

Disliked: The staff didn't really seem to care about recommendations or problems, and in fact didn't actually know much about Madrid. Am pretty sure we found about more about Madrid in three days than the staff who work there know. The common area is very small. Breakfast is average.

Liked: One of the best hostels I've ever been to (and I've been to quite a few!). The location is absolutely fantastic. I could go anywhere without using the metro. Rooms were comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly. Met lots of interesting people. Cosy atmosphere. And most importantly hot showers were actually hot 24hrs!!

Disliked: Nothing to complain about really.

Liked: The location is perfect - various attractions in just a few minutes of walk and two metro stops make it was easy to visit. Free 24/7 access to Wi-Fi is another plus that I really liked. It's also very easy to meet people and the staff is nice and helpful.

Disliked: Sleeping is not the easier thing to do with all the noise coming from the street below but it's a small price to pay - besides, after a day spent walking around and a night out, most people just tend to fall right asleep. Also, take note that the breakfast finishes at 10 - not 10:15 like they say it does and that you will not be allowed access to the kitchen if you are late.
