Bastardo Hostel

San Mateo 3


A journey does not begin at the gate, on the platform of the train, when you get into the car. It starts the moment you start to fantasize about starting it. When you’re obsessively looking at a point on the map, while you’re chatting on the web about a destination, consulting books, guides, chatting with other travelers or natives about that dreamed-of place, you’re actually on your way.

One travels for work, for pleasure, alone or in company, to discover or to lose oneself, to get to know oneself better or to connect with other people, to look at different cultures, different ways of living, different ways of looking. It also has contraindications, of course. Because as Mark Twain said, “Travel is bad for prejudice, intolerance and narrow-mindedness”.

That’s why we have options that adapt to all needs and budgets: private or shared rooms, for those who travel alone, for couples, for groups, for threesomes, for families, with a terrace… Always with an exquisite design and special care for small details. Patti Smith, Luis Buñuel, Divine, Emiliano Zapata, Marie Curie, Confucius, Frida Kalho… each of our rooms pays tribute to characters who have gone off the beaten path, pioneers who have had the audacity to think and live differently. Bastard attitude.
So much for introductions. We’ll have time to get to know each other little by little.

Welcome to Bastardo.
Come in without knocking.

Every road lead to Bastardo. We are in the city centre of Madrid. The nearest metro stations are Tribunal "(lines 1 and 10) and Alonso Martínez (lines 4 and 5).
We have plenty of posibilities:
- A) From the airport:
- Option 1, metro: Take line 8 from the airport to Nuevos Ministerios. Then transfer to line 10 to Tribunal. It will take 30 minutes approximately.
- Option 2, taxi: In Madrid there is a closed rate of 30€ per trip from the airport to the city centre and vice versa. It will take around 35 minutes, but be aware of Madrid's rush hours (8 to 10h and 17 to 20h), the trip could be prolonged to 65 minutes.

- B) Train:
Traveling by train is one of the big pleasure of life. There is a direct line from Atocha, the main station of Madrid. You only have to take metro's line 1 to Tribunal, about 11 minutes. If you come from Chamartín, there is also a direct metro line. Take line 10 to Tribunal, about 15 minutes.

If you like road trips, Bastardo is in your route. You can leave your car in our parking for 29€ per night. Book ahead, parking spaces are limited.
