One of the cleanest hostels I've been to. Amazing staff and always something to do at night! They also have free breakfast I think but we were never up early enough for that. Met some unforgettable friends and would definitely come here again. So close to the sol station and lots of food at the heart of Madrid.

We had a great time at SunGate Hostel, everyone was really friendly and gave great advice about places to visit and eat. The location is perfect for anyone that wants to explore the city, it couldn't be any more central! The rooms are clean and there never seemed to be a line for the shower. Thanks everyone who made our...

I had the most amazing time in Madrid thanks to the wonderful people working at Sungate. I was a solo traveler, I had worse luck traveling on my own then Tom Hanks. Nonetheless, my trip was saved thanks to this awesome hostel The hostel itself was in a great location in the center of the city, just a walk away...

its a good place to stay which is in the heart of the city. Place is quite nice, comfortable and clean. Atmosphere is electric and quite friendly. Found a bit expensive and its on 2nd floor with no lifts. tough to carry luggage though but assistance can be provided if you need one from reception.

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.

“A bed in a 6-person room is as good as a 4-person one, so don't worry because it can save you some money. Also, don't forget your earplugs.”
