In overall I did not like my stay. What I did not like? The staff was not friendly, kind of cold and unpersonal. The rooms were tidy but my sheets still dirty (blood or wine on it). Shower was clean and great! Rooms very dark, not enough light. Bar seemed fun untill I figured out the music was getting louder and louder and I couldn't sleep till 2 in the morning (my room was on the first floor). So if you like to party, no problem but if you're tired,...

Property's Favourite Review
Best things about the place: great location, less then 5 minutes from the Tribunal metro station. The staff was super helpful, even when busy, and the reception is open 24h. One thing I did not expect is how awesome the neighbourhood is! There are tons of great vintage shops (search for the Pink Flamingo, my favourite) and affordable places to eat and drink. Worst things about the place: the laundry costs 4€ for a 35 minutes wash, PLUS 4€ to run the dryer. Laundry pods are provided for free at reception, but honestly 8€ for laundry seems a bit excessive. Also there is only 1 washing machine in the structure. The bar area on the ground floor is quite small and noisy, and the floor is shared with restaurant Limbo which is a separate, private entity. They won't allow you to sit on the outside furniture for a smoke, even though the tables are spread all along the hostel entrance. The private rooms were a bit on the expensive side for a hostel, but the facilities were great and honestly hotel-level quality. I would say it does not seem super easy to meet people there, unless you are lucky enough to get along with people in your dorm.

Unfortunately we did not have a great experience at this hostel for the following reasons: -The lockers can only hold a small piece of luggage and definitely not a check-in bag and therefore our big backpack did not fit and had to be left out all the time. -When we arrived the floor of the room as well as the shower / sinks / toilets were dirty and had clearly not been cleaned that day. I doubt that there is a daily cleaning in the rooms which is a problem considering that the bathroom is in the room and not in a common area. -The fact that the bathroom is in the room is quite bad, since it generates a lot of noise. We were lucky that we did not get the beds right next to the toilet! -Everything works with a QR Code that you get via Email on your phone and we found this quite annoying although this is probably a personal preference. -We paid 65€ per person per night. It was a busy week-end in Madrid but in any case definitely not worth the price! One positive note: the location is great / in a lively district with lots of restaurants and bars.

Excellent amenities, excellent staff, excellent location. Breakfast at the hostel is cheap and awesome. Everything super clean, everyone was super nice. The neighborhood is vibrant and diverse, without forgetting the Spanish culture. Only advise is to fix the revolting door. 10/10 would return and recommend.

Bastardo Hostel relatively easy to get too you can take a taxi for 30-40 euros or just take the metro its simple enough only having to swap one about 30mins and cost about €7.50 for the one journey so good option if your travelling solo or trying to save money. Got to hostel the lady registered me which was simple enough with a few details, you get a barcode scan which opens the lift and your room door, just don't loose your phone. They supposedly have a list but there weren't any events really suppose to have a traveller Meetup Thursday which didn't occur also it's a hostel you should make more opportunities to meet people, instead they held a private event for people/ company who rented the place out instead. There was a pub crawl on the Friday though there was suppose to be one everyday, i didn't go but I did ask the people who went and they said it was terrible they only went to English Irish bars apparently and only 5 or 6 people went. I did find people on this trip just not thanks to hotel or staff. The room itself is fine though I did ask for a bottom bunk but this was completly ignored, also the cleaning staff has a habit of throwing your stuff away I did complain about this and they would not refund the stuff thrown away they tried to blame people in the room but it wasn't them it was clearly cleaning staff bastardo don't want to claim responsibility is what it is. Also you would think common sense at least provide hand soap to use in the room for bathroom but no, they do procide showgel in the shower, also yes they managed to throw my luffa as well 🙄. They do have a terrace upstairs though they never made use of this place, could be used so well, just no initiative from bastardo to do it. I got in around 4pm and asked what can I do as I was looking for suggestions though they just told me to go puerto de sol, they were not very helpful. Ps the square is under construction at current. I did manage to find a tourist office in playa de mayor which was quite helpful in terms of what to see and do. So overall If you need a room its fine, if you want to meet people suggest you try else where though even the rooms each bunk could do with a curtain for privacy, so not to disturb others

The only thing I can say that was good is the location. There was no warning that the Hostel would be under construction, which caused an unbearable noise. The kitchen was under construction. The drain in my bathroom was clogged, spurting water out (to the room, inclusive) and was clogged during the entire stay. Even though I reported it several times. The staff is not friendly at all. And very regular cleaning.

A fun and quirky little spot in an excellent location. The staff were INCREDIBLY friendly. The room was basic, clean and had everything I needed. The wifi connection was great (super important for me because of work), and the roof terrace is great, too. Great value for money. Thanks for the short, but very sweet stay.

The worst! The charged the reservation that passed as no show as one one the person in our group couldn't travel due to the Vise Denied after exchanging emails with they front desk, as ask them to escalate my case to the manager, which they didn't as I told them I wanted an Appointment with the GM to express my case... Guest what? I sent them 3 reminders and they were ignore. They charged me 212 euros total. The funny thing is that I had a reservation for 2 which I canceled do to this issue. I work for a Resort Company and this is s lack of interest and they are just here for the the money. They gained 212 Euro, but they lost the same or more with the reservation I canceled byt most importantly they lost s potential customer to visit them st least 3 times a year

Hello Hrgalindez16, as reception staff told you when you called to Bastardo, due to you did not showed up at the Hostel and your reservation was out of cancellation periord, we charged the total amount. When you did the reservation you could see this policy: "Free cancellation 24 hours prior to the arrival. Cancellations within 24 hours prior to the arrival of the guest and or no shows will have a penalty charge of the 100% of the total stay". Bastardo team!

We stayed there for a weekend in a double room and really enjoyed it. Very cosy and fun, still perfectly clean and functional. The bed is very comfortable, very silent, we had a great sleep! The staff is kind and helpful, great strategic location. Highly recommend if you are young… and young at heart ❤️

Bastardo Hostel provide a service better than expected. Price - quality ratio pretty good ! Internet, electrical outlets, bed (sheets, duvet and pillow good quality), cleanliness of spaces was perfect. Several mirrors and chairs, Design of the dormitory allows to keep intimacy and socialize at the same time with other travalers !! Love it! Highly recommended for digital nomads ( I could myself perfectly well work here).
