The Hostel is very cleane and cheap. I am very happy to stay this hostel one more time. The hotel is located near the center and has convenient transport. I recommend it with both hands all who want a clean and inexpensive hotel. Suitable for families.
I booked a single room with private bathroom for two nights, when I arrived at the hotel I was told that there are only shared bathrooms. Overall it was clean and friendly service, on the down side there are always foreign people in the reception area, and they give you shady looks. It is in the middle of an industrial estate, and isn't well communicated, it took me half an hour to get to the train / Metro station I ended up only staying one night, luckily there are better hotels nearby.
I was surprised how far is this hostel from the metro station. You need to walk 20 min or take the bus/taxi. The hostel is huge, but most of the guests are families who are not working or looking for accommodation so it's not a touristic hostel at all. There is no access to kitchen, only microwave. The internet is only in the reception area. To get the internet in the room you need to pay for it. In the room I was staying it was 6 beds and 3 electric socket... how do you charge 6 phones over the night? The place is very cheap and clean tho, so if you don't mind walking (30 min by metro to center of Madrid, plus 20 min walking from metro to hostel). You don't need an internet access in your room and you don't mind sharing it with families... It's for you :)
This Hostel is not located in the center of Madrid you have to change metro lines and go to Valencia and from their you have to walk either 30 minutes or get a 10 euro taxi to the place , so if you are travelers looking for having good time in Madrid chances are you will miss the parties and others as the distance to reach from the hostel is long The hostel is good and very nice place to sleep I stayed some three days in the hostel but if you wanna enjoy the Madrid stay somewhere in the city
Odd hostel planted in the southern suburb of Vallecas, at least 20 mins by taxi from city centre, and MUCH longer if you are relying on public transport. Yes, the cost of a bed is very low, but if you add the taxi fare to that, you probably end up with the same cost as in a city-centre hostel. Regarding the building itself, it's a huge industrial-scale construction, institutional and soulless to a degree. Among the residents there are a large number of asylum seekers, perhaps the government puts them up here for cost or convenience reasons. It's certainly not your typical backpacker hostel. I don't know if I'd be interested in a return visit. I'd rather spend 30 euros for a city centre hostel instead.
I am studying in Seville and took a trip to madrid this past weekend with some friends. Originally the 5 of us were going to rent a flat for the weekend in the city, but plans fell through and so we took the option of booking a hostel. When we arrived, the staff was very unprofessional and it took about 40 minutes to check in with no line in front of us. For the rest, I'm sorry, but I don't really know how to make this sound polite, so I'll be blunt. The hostel is not a typical hostel with youth or college aged students like you would expect; it is basically a refugee camp. I expected college students, but there was only Africans [disclaimer: only used their descent for description] Immediately when we entered, we were smacked in the face with the worst smell possible, and probably the worst body oder I have ever smelled as well. It smelled as if none of the people had showered in years. The rooms and bathrooms were absolutely disgusting. They advertise free wifi, but it is only free in the lobby or 3 euros for 12 hours. Other than being nowhere near the center of the city, it was in a very sketchy neighborhood that had trash any which way you looked. If you are planning on going to the center of town, this is not the best hostel for you. The guy at the front desk said it was a 2.5 hour walk. We took the train into town each day (1,70 euros each way), and had a 20 minute walk to the nearest station. Absolutely terrible, and would highly recommend searching other accommodations.
This was our very first experience staying at a youth hostel, we were pleasantly surprised by Hwelcome. Although its set way out of the city centre in the industrial suburbs, this quiet hostel offered a friendly check in even close to midnight, very basic but clean room (we stayed in a private double room) and bathroom located conveniently down the hallway. It was not crowded at all, the ambience was very family friendly and secure. The only issue is its location. The nearest bus stop is 5 min walk away. The bus takes you to the nearest metro station Sierra de guadalupe in about 10 min, the metro is well connected to the city centre.. overall its about 30 min from the hostel to Sol, the central city square. Still it was all covered by our madrid metro tourist passes, so the travel pass is a good investment to look into if you're staying here. The madrid transport system is very efficient and user friendly.
When we arrived very late into Madrid after a long journey i must admit at first i wasn't convinced about Hostal welcome, but i came away after 3 nights having had a lovely time. Very basic rooms, nothing fancy. Shared toilets and showers altho in the whole time we were there i probably bumped into someone in there twice - very quiet and decent privacy. Very clean, with vending machines, computers and wifi (computers and wifi in the rooms were not free, but not overly priced either, wifi in the lobby is free. The location lets this place down really, a good 15 - 20 minute walk and then another 30 minute metro ride into the centre of madrid. Its in an industrial estate and there really is very little around there, we stayed over a sunday and struggled to find anywhere to eat because the hotels restaurant was closed. However the staff really were brilliant, one man gave us a map and directions despite not speaking english, and one lady was incredibly friendly and even let us sit in the lobby bit using wifi long after we had to check out. This is good for budget travellers, but not for a holiday destination. A safe and perfectly happy stay all the same.
When we arrived in the midle of this industrial area, and spent 40 minutes on check in (no line), we had our doubts about the place, but when we got to the room and saw the showers, we at least understood the price! Not that the place was so nice, but we got our own rooms, and the showers were nice. The place can kind of give you a feeling of something like a council housing, like all steril and clean. The worst thing about the place were the location, you are far away from everything but industries.
This is a Big, well designed, very secure, easy to find hostel. It comes with clean sheets and towels and a lock for the locker in the room, the price is unbeatable and rooms are almost always available, with parking. The only down side is its far way, it takes about an hour to get there from the airport by metro, and there is almost nothing around it besides a big industrial park. This place is perfect if you have a car, or just looking for a place to sleep while you spend the entire day in historic Madrid, it's easy to get to by train, but like i said it's far way from everything else. It's really peaceful at night, I slept better here than i do at home!
