Best hostel in town!Cats Hostel Madrid Sol is housed in an 18th-century palace that has been completed renewed and designed for the 21st-century travelers.
There’s no better way to navigate the city than with a local guide to gain insider tips, new knowledge, and fun facts. While we are known for our awesome nightlife, you didn’t come all the way to Madrid just to dance your problems away at Sol and walk through Gran Via post hangover for a pizza or hamburger (but if you did, kudos to you)! That´s why we offer all our guests three types of tours to see Madrid from a different perspective . . . so, you know, you´ll leave with an expanded level of cultural competence and facts and memories you can actually relay to your grandma after your travels are over.
Come get cultured and learn about what Madrid has to offer through any of our available tours!

You´ll also meet other guests staying at the hostel and can make new friends to further explore these old zones after the tour is over. Did we mention its free?
