We took a punt on Mad Hostel when visting Madrid for a weekend in October 2012. We arrived after a late flight but made sure we had contacted the hostel in advance to let them know our ETA. When we finally arrived at the hostel, the young French guy on the reception was really efficient in checking us in and very helpful in recommending some bars and places for us to visit.
All of the rooms had electronic locks which gave them a great sence of security. There were also lockers in the rooms which were activated by using the same 'watch' we were given to access the room. The beds were good and even though we had a full room of 6 on both evening there still seemed to be enough space for all of us. I was particually placed with the cleanliness of the bathrooms and shower facilities which looked (and smelt) as though they were cleaned 3 times+ a day which, in a medium sized hostel like this, is quite a nice luxury.
The free buffet breakfast in the morning was adequet to set you up for the day. On certain days the hostel also offers a free walking tour of the city which is run with its 'sister' hostel 'Catz'. I would definately recommend this tour to get the most out of the city in a short period of time.
