Ok Hostel Madrid Reviews

Possibly the best Hostel I have ever stayed in, in Europe! Clean, safe, new, friendly, big, lots of facilities, great location, perfect balanced vibe of fun yet quiet where necessary, cheap & good food and bar on site. Will always stay there in Madrid!

Stayed at 9 hostels this month, this was the Best

This hostel is cleaner than some nice hotels. The beds and pillows are comfortable, rooms have their own bathroom/shower, excellent kitchen and common rooms downstairs!! Breakfast is good and the 9pm dinner is way to meet people in a really pleasant common area. There is even a free walking tour every morning that lasts for about two hours. Wifi is pretty fast too and does not lose connection constantly unlike at many other hostels.

Ok Hostel Madrid is a large, modern hostel constructed within an existing building (a purpose conversion), which is almost unique in our experience. Unique, too, is the staff training -- at check-in, the warmth of the welcome and interest shown in newly arrived travelers is highly unusual, and clearly designed to make you immediately feel at home. The delicious breakfast (admittedly, it's at additional cost, but still very cheap), and the evening dinner served at the long, communal tables act positively to facilitate meeting fellow travelers.

The Location

The hostel is located in the bohemian Barrio La Latina Quarter, very close to the historic centre of Madrid and only a four-minute walk away from metro stop Tiros de Molina on Line One (light blue). The easiest way from the airport is to use Line Eight to Nuevos Ministerios, change to Line Ten in direction Puerta del Sur, and make one more change to Line One at Tribunal in direction Congosto. Youre looking at an overall journey time of less than an hour.

The hostel is well situated for access to the main attractions, such as Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor and the world-renowned Prado Art Museum, the Queen Sofia Art Museum, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The dorms are brand new, with comfortable, sturdy, well-secured wooden bunks (no creaking) and a small en suite with toilet, bath, and shower attachment. The shower is powerful and hot. Sadly, the sink (in the dorm itself) only provides cold water, so wet shaving is uncomfortable. Each bunk has its own individual power sockets and lights, and a very large under-bunk lockable drawer (bring your own padlock). There are plenty of hooks, and a small desk. The opening window can be obscured completely at night by a roller shutter blind. Each room has a combined air conditioning and heating unit with individual room controls. There is ample space between bunks to dress and change, and there a single comfortable reading chair, complete with art-moderne standard lamp. The feel is airy, clean, and slightly utilitarian. Mattresses are comfortable, and bedding is clean and soft. Duvets ensure a warm nights sleep. On hot nights, duvets can be removed from their covers and the covers can be used as a top sheet.

Common Spaces

The reception area is permanently staffed and building access is strictly controlled to guests only. The entrance lobby broadens out to the bar area, a small relaxed seating area, and long dining tables lining the perimeter. A self-catering kitchen leads off, as does a staircase leading down to the basement with laundry and WC facilities; tucked away is a small, quiet reading corner with bookshelves and chairs. Three state-of-the-art Mac desktops are available for guests use. A widescreen TV plays in the bar. Leaflets on local attractions are in the entrance lobby. There is free Wi-Fi throughout, and download speeds are perfectly reasonable.

Breakfast is continental in style, but offers a range of items by way of cereals, breads, jams and spreads, teas, coffee, juices, cold meats, eggs, and cold breakfast vegetables. Dinner is a three-course affair, prepared and cooked by a chef employed specifically for the purpose, and served at long tables, perfect for initiating conversation.

Summary

Ok Hostel Madrid is a well run and brand-new hostel clearly set up by a team that is aware of what attracts backpackers, both in terms of the practical facilities, but also in terms of knowing how to facilitate contact and interaction. As it's well located, it provides a perfect base for exploring Madrid.

I only stayed for one night but had a great stay. I was impressed with the options available in terms of evening meals, bar crawls, breakfasts etc. The staff were super friendly and the communal area was great fun!

I had a breakfast for 6 Euros which was great value for money.

The location brilliant, right in the heart of a buzzing neighbourhood.

I would go again!

Everything to like about this hostel. Location is excellent, within minutes from two metro stations, easy walk to the "highlight sites" of Madrid. Excellent staff who were quite happy to chat, guide, and generally be helpful. My private room was very quiet, very comfortable. Wifi is fast and reliable. They organise daily free walking tours and a pub crawl every night, all of which were fun. Breakfast is adequate. Atmosphere is social without being in your face. Will highly recommend!

Very nice hostel, well located and helpful staff! However, the rooms are very hot and humid and the ac doesnt work very well

The room was really strange. The main room light was automatic so whenever someone got out of bed/moved in the room, it would turn on. This, coupled with the fact that the sink isnt even in the en suite bathroom but is in the main room, and the air con was barely functioning, made sleeping quite difficult.

I wish I could give this hostel a 10! The staff, location and amenities were amazing, but the AC was too week. Rooms were holding at around 27 and they were hot and humid! Terrible sleep and no relief from the 40 degree weather outside. I only stayed two nights but I was seriously considering cutting my loses and booking an expensive hotel to get some relief from the heat. If coming to Madrid in the winter months this hostel would be perfect (although I don't know how good their heat is).

The overall hostel seemed nice, but I definitely did not have a good experience. I had a delayed train from Barcelona so I ended up arriving pretty late and ready for bed. The receptionist checked me into the wrong room and had to literally wake me up after I already unpacked. This was super frustrating and awkward especially because I had to wake up at 6 am for a flight. Was hoping for a refund or something but instead only got offered a free breakfast that I wouldnt be able to make anyway.

Loved my stay here would definitely recommend it! Located in La Latina neighbourhood, its close to everything but out of the tourist area. Staff helped me with my luggage and gave me a great overview of Madrid since it was my first time! They were such lovely people and made my experience so much better; I got some great recommendations for places to go and food to eat. The hostel was very cute and clean (love the privacy curtains!) although there was some water damage and mold in the washroom.

Well located within a close walk to Sol. Good kitchen and communal facilities, with a good atmosphere. Felt very safe with my children there; the dorms were not the most commodious but safe, quiet and clean.

The hostel is located in a fantastic area and the staff is very nice. Lots of amenities and activities to do at the hostel. Breakfast in the morning is good. The AC in my room was barely working so it was really hot and the shower curtain was moldy and the shower leaked water everywhere. The shower also smelled like p*** constantly. I would stay again just not in that room.

Overall, comfortable stay. The dorm, kitchen and living area were all clean. Breakfast was good. Staff outstanding. Improvement could be made with dorm restroom. There was a constant foul odor. The lighting in the dorm and restroom was dim. I stayed during the heatwave and the air-conditioning had a hard time keeping the room cool. Only one vent in the room was working at the time. Great location!

BEST HOSTEL EVER!! STAY HERE!! Staff is EXTREMELY friendly and they have lots to do! They offer free water and coffee and you get to meet so many people! I wish I stayed here longer! It's very close to the center so location is perfect! They allow you to store your bags ahead of check in and they are also willing to give you great insight on what to do in the city. Join the bar crawl! Best night ever!!

Was expecting so much more out of this hostel but it was not that great at all. Atmosphere was really dull, bathroom door was broken when I stayed. Can do so much better.
