This place is more like a boutique hostel than a hostel. Very trendy and modern. I can't believe that they have only been opened 3 weeks. Give them a year and I really think that this place will be the most popular hostel in Madrid.

Room Tip: The top bunk in a bit hard to climb in and out of, so I would recommend taking the bottom bunk.

Great find! Clean modern rooms and away from noise! The bar is buzzing at night with half being locals. The place was made from scratch and is adorable and comfortable. Its a bit of a hike from the metro but a nice walk...after all you want to see the city right. You can rsvp a 9 euro transport to the airport the owner Alfonso is a sweetheart. Additionally, theres an elevator and two bars one on the roof.

Awesome staff who are eager to help. Pretty good location. Fantastic facilities, everything felt clean, new and fresh. Included breakfast was a wonderful bonus. Also worth looking into a private room if travelling as a couple or family since it is that nice. Really chilled vibe and highly recommended.

It is not the typical hostel that you might think, to start with it is just literally three minutes from the Plaza Mayor and has a supermarket just opposite. It has breakfast included and the price is great. The decoration is fresh and urban and the staff it is helpful and charming ( Victor, at the reception, we love you all !!). It has a fantastic roof terrace. Highly recommended , and we will definitely be back.
