  • 10.0.Exceptional

    A wonderful hostel experience.

    It was amazing and lovely staff who helped me with organising everything. The room was clean, comfy and bed was soft. The only thing is that it would be better to ask the tenants if they would require bed fence when checking-in for safety concern.

    The fact there is a bar and a restaurant inside was very pleasing. Living in a mixed room was interesting. Even so everybody valued their privacy and was respectful as well. The staff was very helpful. I love the Sandeman Walking Tour they have with Bastardo. Lexi Hadfield was the best tour guide from Plaza Mayor to the Palacio Real de Madrid. Again I enjoyed my stay. Next time I'll bring a couple of friends.

    Very Meh

    The staff here is really bad. Bad attitudes. I was told something about check out by a staff member. Later I told the other staff member what was said. He told me "no one from here told you that". Until the original staff walked over and said yes I did tell him that lol. This is just one example.

    The El Bastardo is awesome. I am wholeheartedly going to stay there again. Crisp, clean white sheets. The bunks are compartmentalized so that no one is staring at you. Well designed. Super quiet room as well! Breakfast was wonderful. I got the Huevos Rancheros. Fresh, slightly spicy, and with fresh guacamole. Delicious!

    Don't care about guests

    I had a bad experience at this hostel because the first day I got there I left my backpack in my room but it was stolen by 2 people from outside that got into the room very easy. On top of that no manager from the hostel came to me to say sorry or empathized with me for what had happened. After coming from the police station I told the hostel I had nothing but what I was wearing at the moment and asked for a towel to take a shower and they also charged me for that (2 euros)

    I enjoy that eventhough there were six bunk beds tge way they are positioned gives you some privacy. However, i do wish tge rooms had a colder AC, the rooms were at room temperature.
