Over all, the room was good except the staff was not kind and you have to pay for luggage locker.

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!

The WiFi did not work when I was there. Also the top bunks are super high without railings. But overall the hostel was in a good location.

The staff was friendly and helpful. It’s in the center and easy to get around. My only complaint was the WiFi it was so horrible and inconvenient for people like me who need to use it for work.

Good 6.0
This hostel was good value. The staff was ok but was reluctant to help when you had qs. I was also placed in an all male suite when I actually requested an all female suite. I didn’t mind it too much but it was definitely unprofessional that rather than communicating this to me during check in, they spoke among themselves in spanish to just put me in the suite and see if I cared. Additionally, the locker I was assigned to was not useable. You couldn’t open it due to the wall layout of the room. They provided me with another locker but the staff attitude couldn’t have been bothered. Overall, it was good value but don’t expect that you’ll get what you booked! Poor communication on the staff part.

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.
