Here on Sundays, it becomes a lively meeting place for Spaniards as they play tambor drums all afternoon in front of the man made lake.

Loaded with great bars, it starts filling up around midnight. Nightclubs in Madrid abound, the megaclubs include Pacha, Joy Eslava and Kapital, all near the centre.The rooms are clean, classically decorated and equipped with all the necessary amenities to make your stay pleasant and comfortable. The high ceilings bring a refreshing, spacious ambience to the rooms.A cool, clean, comfortable and economic Hostel to really enjoy the city centre of Madrid.
