Great stay in the centre of Madrid
It was great! I extended my stay because the hostel is so central and the pub crawls are such a good way to meet others. I really liked the city tour; Jay was excellent

Nice stay
The hostel was very nice. Cons: Leaving luggage stored requires extra cost, you basically book lockers for 6, 12 or 24h.

great stay
the room got a smell due to poor ventilation but I like the size of the bed, it's big and spacious. would be nice if they add a curtain so everyone gets more privacy. the steps to the upper bunk is dangerous, it's merely inches where you put your feet to climb up the bed, I really hope they fix this..... I almost fall on my way down, as I missed the narrow step! 5euros for buffet breakfast is quite good value!

Clean and ideally located for first time in Madrid
Mola is ideally located for a first visit to Madrid. It isn’t in a hip neighborhood but it is smack in the middle of the center, less than 5 minutes away from Plaza Mayor, Puerta del Sol, Gran Via, etc. Most tourist sights are a stone throw away which make the hostel a perfect home base for a first visit to the city. The room and en-suite bathroom were very clean (above average for a hostel). There are some visible signs of humidity around the hostel but it doesn’t smell of mold or anything like that- I think they might have had an isolated flooding incident that they haven’t fully fixed from a cosmetic standpoint. The friendly staff was available 24/7. While I wouldn’t stay in this area of Madrid again (I’d probably go to Chueca or Malasaña for a second trip to Madrid) I would definitely recommend the hostel for first timers in the city!

Champions League weekend
Clean and comfortable with friendly staff. Window blinds broken so early sun a problem. Champions league final weekend so I'm embarrassed to say what I paid to share a room with 7 others but all accommodation in the city had inflated rates. Thankfully the bars and restaurants kept their prices normal. Hostel convenient to city centre. First time doing the hostel thing and that box is ticked for me.

Great location, clean and great people!
Phenomenal location, lovely staff, and met lots of really fun people. Love the bar/lounge area downstairs for meeting people, unwinding and getting ready for the daily bar crawls!

Nice location, some things to improve
Pros: - The location is perfect! It’s only 4 minutes walking from Sol Metro Station. - There is an en-suite in the bedroom. - Despite of the fact that you have to pay for the breakfast, it’s very very good for 5 euros. - The bed and mattress were very comfy. Cons: There was only one shower for 8 people in the room so sometimes I had to wait. - They don’t provide toiletries, if you want you can rent a towel. The shower had a lot of mold in the ceiling and sometimes was dirty.
