The perfect stay in Madrid naturally starts at “Madrid’s first luxury hostel” – this is the confident assertion made by the U Hostel team since it opened. in late 2012.
Nothing here is reminiscent of a run-down hostel –quite the opposite. A former backpacker, dissapointed with the low cost accomodation found in his round the world trip, has turned a fine 19th-century residence into a bright, lively and inviting place to stay.
U Hostel has a modern and cozy design, as well as boasting an excellent central location – close to Alonso Martinez.
Its rooms are really spacious, clean and comfortable. In addition to classic dorms of different number of beds (including girls only dorms) there are double rooms with en-suite bathrooms up to 30 square metres in size.
The dorms are equipped with unique custom made bunk beds, that in addition to their robustness (designed for adults), incorporates a 5 start hotel quality mattress.
They also have a large space between the two beds so the person occupying the lower bunk enjoys great comfort. All the bunk beds have a special place where the guest can store small important things (wallet phones, etc.)
In addition, they also have plugs for anything the customer may need – charging phones, cameras, tablets, and computers. All bunk beds have their own reading light, so as to not disturb other guests in the room.
But that is by no means everything that this hostel has to offer. There is a 24hrs reception, free wifi in the entire building, air conditioning, bike rentals, free computers, cooking lessons and flamenco shows.
What else!? A roof terrace for sunbathing, an in-house Cinema, a chill-out bar and free tours of the city every morning.
And yes, – it really is a hostel! At the best location in Madrid, right next to Alonso Martinez, U hostels guests are within walking distance to the trendy areas of Malasaña, Funcarral and Chueca.
The shopping area of the Salamanca neighborhood and the touristic zone of Sol‐Gran Via are also just minutes away!
There are 3 different metro stations within 100 meters from U hostels that provides direct connection to the airport, atocha train station or main bus station in Madrid.
U hostels is the natural choice for any traveller looking for a clean, comfortable and entertaining stay.
