4/10 Fair

Unpleasant personnel
When booking a hostel, you know more or less what to expect. In this case, it is an environment-friendly hotel. You don't need a key and use everything by phone. Though the service was rude and judgy, I never felt disdainful from a receptionist like in this hostel. Receptionist controls the temperature of the room, it's summer now, and you wake up at 30 deg since someone decided that, so uncomfortable!

Great stay in brilliant area
My partner and I had a lovely stay at Bastardo. We stayed in the superior double on the top floor which was great. Very friendly and helpful staff in a really convenient and lovely area within walking distance of a lot of great places and sights in Madrid. The only note I can think of would be that while the communal roof terrace was lovely, there were hardly any chairs or tables out so we couldn't really use it unless we wanted to stand about. Overall though, had a great stay and would warmly recommend.
