"loved it" Mad Hostel Tip by crankywillow

Mad Hostel, Madrid: 331 reviews and 0 photos

I'm so surprised to see all the bad comments: I spent 5 days last summer in that hostel and found it clean, quite cheap and the building itself is lovely. The people at the desk were nice and helpful. The breakfast is really OK, and they leave all the extra food in the common kitchen after 11. The terrace is just heaven to relax: there's a view on the rooves of the city at sunset (or sunrise, well...). The common room is large, comfy and cool when it's really hot out. Also it's pretty easy to find and the area is also nice and convenient. I would definitely go back there...

Unique Qualities: The terrace and the view from there; for those who are addicted to it, there's even a small room with machines to cycle, run...
