Would love to come and stay here again!
This hostel made my time in Madrid SO MEMORABLE. Starting with two staff members who just went above and beyond - Jessie and Roberto. Roberto described Madrid in great detail showing me some local spots and awesome tourist must-sees in a map! Jessie took the time to show me around town and we walked to the hostel sunset picnic together (a social event hosted by the hostel that I recommend 100%!!) And when I told them I was looking to try paella but theyre so big for a solo traveler like me, they offered to grab some paellas for lunch that we can all share for lunch at the dining table! They were both so sweet to all guests and added a personal touch, making sure the guests feel at home and just hanging out at a friend's place. The facilities are very clean! I stayed in a 4 bed female dorm. The beds were comfy, the room welt homey, and it was quiet! There's also laundry available. You step out and youre in front of stores like Zara and just a couple minutes from a main plaza with metro station. This location feels so safe to walk around even past midnight. Perfect location! The social atmosphere here was awesome and really, hats off to these guys for making my stay so fun! I met so much people that I enjoyed talking to. I also recommend the pub crawl!

Friendliest staff, clean but call ahead 4 groups
I stayed at Sungate one for 3 nights in April. Overall its a good hostel but I do think they are somethings to note about staying here.Most importantly they do book large high school groups into the hostel and that completely changes the hostel's vibes. I found the staff to be a bit curt and flustered when such large groups took over the hostel and it didn't feel as welcoming. I mostly just stayed in my room at those times. However overall the staff is sooooo nice/helpful and Angel is really an amazing manager the staff themselves is on the younger side some probably only 2 years out of high school so combined with the high school groups the hostel could feel very young at times. I don't have anything against young adults but its something to note if you want to party hard that it may get a bit awkward when the hostel's crowd can't even legally drink yet.

Stay here, you won't regret it!
This is where you need to be! Fantastic staff who will welcome you with open arms. Location is the best position in the city. Nice outings and activities, family style dinner if you want to participate, but you don't have to. Everything is up to you. If you want to party, stay downstairs, if not, there are quieter rooms where you can take a nice rest. Pristine bathrooms, and clean in all areas of hostel. Nice relaxed vibe. The staff helped me with my heavy luggage upon arrival, assisted with making some phone calls, and then upon leaving, actually took me through the metro stops to my next location! The manager is an intelligent and caring man, very thoughtful. I would have liked to stay longer, but I'd already booked another site, and that was a mistake on my part. Stay here for extraordinarily nice people, a great location, comfortable social areas, and clean spaces.

The staff are the best, super lovely, friendly, welcoming and just all round super cool and the best. I'm very sleep deprived at the moment but I mean that with my whole heart haha. They really were the best, you will feel at home straight away. Also the no bunks situation is lovely because you don't have to climb up and wake the person on the bottom bunk and hit you're head on the roof et cetera - frequent hostel stayers know what I'm talking about. The showers were clean and good pressure. The churros for breakfast were delightful and the crepes/pancakes also - who knew apricot jam and crepes would be such a match made in heaven. All round lovely hostel :)

Location is second to none!
The location is superb, right in the center of pedestrian shopping area, so convenient. The hostel has no lift/elevator and reception is located at 2nd floor and rooms are at 3rd, I was lucky the receptionists are so kind helping me with my luggage. There's no breakfast but they provide free dinner instead, I didn't try though because I went with a full day tour to Segovia. Lockers does not come with a lock so you need your own padlock or buy from reception. Also hostel does not provide towels, no free shower gel or shampoo, but you can also buy from the reception. The bathrooms are not so clean and people left their used shampoo bottles and towels in the bathroom.
