Liked: The property is very central in the city of Madrid and near to the cultural sights.

Disliked: The bathroom facilities in some of the rooms were deplorable. We were a large group and so had a various experiences. In one room it was almost impossible to use the toilet or shower because of a lack of space.

Liked: It was very close to most of the main attractions in Madrid, as well as only a few feet from the Metro where you can travel to other parts of the city. The price is great for what it is as well!

Disliked: For the price it is good for what you get. It's not the most spotless place but for 15 Euros a night it is great!

Liked: Very friendly helpful staff, bathrooms attached to each dorm, a great kitchen, a spacious outdoor area, excellent communal areas. Also located in the heart of Madrid at a really good price. This was a great place to stay.

Disliked: Because its located in the heart of Madrid there is noise from the streets. However my dorm had solid glass doors as well as shutters that negated the noise enough for good sleep.

Liked: The staff was friendly and welcoming. The location was very close to Puerta del Sol, the Prado Museum, etc. I enjoyed my stay very much and would stay here again.

Disliked: There were six beds in our room but not six outlets; this made it difficult for some people to charge their electronic devices.

Liked: This was the first hostel I ever stayed in my life and man, it was great! The location is very close to center (2 min walk), the WiFi works great, the breakfast is good, the terrace and local clubs are great, the people staying here were all great and diverse and the beds/rooms are very clean and well maintained. As a matter of fact, I felt like this hostel was a home. Very warm atmosphere and the host was awesome and very helpful with bar, tour and sight seeing tips. Overall, high,y recommend! Btw, I payed 10 euros night (July 2013) -hard to beat a deal like this!

Disliked: Madrid is really really hot in the summEric (low to mid 40C or around 100 F) so AC is a must. However, the AC is only on 10 pm to 6 Am because of th landlord ( not the hostel?) . Therefore, it can get uncomfortably warm at Around 8 Am. However, this uncomfortable feeling only happened to us 1 day out of the four we stayed here. So a problem, but not a frequent one.

Liked: Great location

Disliked: The rooms only had tiny lockers that couldn't fit much, and some of my stuff got stolen from my pack. The rooms had to be locked manually, so if the other dorm mates didn't lock up (which they didn't), anyone could come in. So, so noisy. Noise from the hostel, the building, and the owners child. Ensuite bathroom separated from dorm by a sliding glass door, so yo couldn't use it without disturbing the dorm mates. Old, rickety building.

Liked: Friendliness of staff, location, price, everything! It's very close to Sol Station, about a 3 min walk. The owner was very friendly and upgraded me to a double shared room for free when realizing that I was the only girl in a mixed room.

Disliked: Nothing
