Liked: Tapas tour was good and there are lots of tours (eg walking tours, pub crawls) going on. Location is good.

Disliked: If you are an independent traveller who wants to meet others without drinking a lot then this may not be the hostel for you. It is a better hostel for groups or those who want to get drunk.

Disliked: Food and drink prices were steep driving me away from the hostel. Far better value found in the local bars.

25 April 2015 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Just as advertised, this is a party hostel with an active nightlife. The location is near the heart of Madrid and not too far from the Metro and major tourist sites.

Disliked: Our attic room was very hot and stuffy with zero ventilation. Also, while we did get the private bath and shower, it would have been good to know that they were not attached to our room ahead of time. We also had cold showers and showers with no constant temperature, so we skipped some showers due to discomfort.

Liked: Nice clean, was there as a stop over from Morocco with my boyfriend and didn't go out but it seemed that it had a really good atmosphere for partying and people. As far as everything else was a standard Europe city hostel.

Disliked: We had an attic private room so had to get reception to buzz us in the main door which was pretty weird. But you dont need this if youre in a dorm

27 January 2015

Liked: There was a 50% offer so I only paid 9 euros.

Disliked: The lockers in the new attic room were just cages, so bags could have been ruined by drinks being spilled. There was no lock in the attic bathroom. The shower didnt have adjustable heat. People were drinking in the room until 3am. They then returned from a nightclub at 5:30 am and vomited everywhere. The new computer suite was outside the room and people were still using it at 6am. The breakfast was ruined by drunks at 8am.

Liked: Awesome character, very chill common room. Excellent walking tour with Erica capped off with an even better lunch from her recommendation!

Disliked: The door locks were difficult to use at times, they are secure just finnicky to use. Pub crawl left a lot to be desired, although it was a Tuesday night. Wifi is quite poor.

Liked: Loved the hostel and loved the free walking tour done by Viviana - she was great! Comfy, clean beds and free secure lockers. Awesome and friendly staff and a great place to meet a lot of awesome young people. Would definitely stay here again!

Disliked: Food offered at the tapas tour wasn't great - you'd be better off doing your own thing.
