    Fantastic location, located around all major attractions of the city. It is very easy to walk to anywhere in Madrid from here. It is also very close to a metro station. I stayed in a double room with its own bathroom which was very clean...More

    Nothing really stood out about this hostel. Wasn't the best and it wasn't terrible. However the sister hostel (CAT) was awesome! This hostel seems like an overflow for CAT as we ate at CAT and went on their pub crawl.

    The rooms are quite small and the wine i had at the reception was the first bad wine i had in spain. The towels had weird black hairs in it (im blonde). Apart from that, common areas are good and the price is fair.

    One of, if not the best hostels I've stayed at in all my travels through Europe. I definitely recommend it. Cheap, clean, good kitchen, great staff, and a good partnership with Cats around the corner for pub crawls and the bar. Many good nights there,...More

    Had a great time staying at Mad Hostel. Mickey was the best guide/friend we could've had. He showed us around the city, told us all about Madrid, and gave us great food/drink recommendations. Highly recommend Mad Hostel and Mickey.

    Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a
    different country ... except it's hard to tell which
    one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with
    Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in
    traditional African clothing convene outside their
    businesses for long chats, and people shout to each
    other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among
    ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and
