I stayed here for a week when traveling by myself a couple of weeks ago. The staff was incredibly nice and helpful. The room was pleasant and clean and the bathrooms were excellent. The free dinners really help facilitate meeting people as do the other activities the hostel organizes. I hardly noticed I was traveling by myself! I made so...

Sungate one is the hostel that all others strive to be, they should write a training guide actually! Super clean, respectful of noise but very eager to bring everyone together and have a lot of fun!! Free dinners are fantastic, especially for folks on a tight budget! I was in a twin private and it was beautiful and comfortable! IKEA...

Madrid is a magical city and this hostel was one of the highlights of the trip. Brilliant location, safe and secure accommodation. A special mention must go to the staff. I have never stayed anywhere with staff as sound as these guys. Genuinely cool and friendly people. A real pleasure to hang out here for a few days.

The vibe is great - I got to know so many people staying at the hostel and it really did feel like a family by the time I left. They do free supper every night from volunteers so you get a taste of countries all around the world. They do a bar crawl every night which is super nice (check...

Best hostel ever! Perfect place for alone travelers to know new people, make friends and enjoy Madrid's night life. Very well located and with excellent services, internet, dormitories, dinner, breakfast, kitchen, etc. Either you choose a quiet stay for resting or a crazy one to have fun, you'll have all the options to enjoy.

I needed a bed for one night in central Madrid. Not only were the staff at Sungate wonderfully helpful, but the charge included an evening meal and breakfast Now I'm not your normal hostel visitor as I'm in my 60's, but I love this place. The beds were comfortable and the location is perfect as it is just off of...

As I am studying abroad from Madrid, I was looking for a place to stay while I was searching for an apartment. The hostel I had stayed at for two nights at the beginning of my stay was dead quiet, and I had a really hard time meeting anyone. Therefore, I decided to give Sungate a try. The minute I...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
