It’s March! The year is passing us by at full speed and we’re starting this month stronger than ever. But, above all, March 8th is International Women’s Day and in Bastardo we are not left behind, but we join with a lot of actions and activities that you can enjoy this month.This March we have a workshop to learn how to make feminist kites on the 28th, on the 6th a talk about LGBTIQ+ through cinema and on the 23rd we have a literary meeting with Baba Yagá, popular witch of Slovenian folklore, in the activity Russian Voices. We are a hostel open to new experiences and we always bet on culture because we want that you have a great time every week.


In addition, you can enjoy the coolest neighborhood of the capital, as there are some emblematic places you can go to visit as the Women’s Bookstore located in Sol square or the statue of Julia in Malasaña, a tribute to women who could not study in the Pez Street, 42. Come and take a vindictive walk near our most bastard hostel where things always happen.Oh, we forgot: on the occasion of this feminist month, which is actually every day of the year, Hipatia of Alexandria is our March bastard as the date of her birth is commemorated on the same day. She is definitely an iconic character in this day of struggle for women and we pay tribute to her in room 102. Do you know her? This room shines like the stars that Hipatia observed and studied in 400 A.D. A character as interesting as our room.


Hipatia of Alexandria: A science bastard 

Hipatia de Alejandría

Hipatia was a philosopher, astronomer and mathematician born in Alexandria in the 4th century who devoted her life to study and teaching. She is considered a pioneer of the history of women in science. She died at the hands of a maddened mob of religious fanatics who, after stripping her naked, beat her with stones and tiles until to cut her up. A martyr of science.


Room 102: A stay on the stars

A room with scientific and astronomical touches where you can spend a pleasant stay in the company of 6 people. You won’t have to fight for who showers first because there are two magnificent showers that you can use without having to make a tremendous queue.Just like Hipatia, the room is well studied and has the perfect measurements for you to enjoy one or several nights in the most bastard and coolest hostel in the capital. This is also a very special room, as it is one of the six rooms that is female bunk.
