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
dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
