Terrible unsafe place. Not at all like the pictures. The street is unsafe specially at night. Not at all a place for families. By the end it was very expensive considering the bad that it was. They let you know that they do not have an elevator, but they do not explained how dirty and unsafe are the stairs, full... More

Stayed in 6 person room, 1 nice king in picture, mostly bunk beds, nearly zero space. They had only 1 traditional key for the room, employees couldn't find more keys. Weak wifi, later found out they had a 2nd completely different signal. More like a hostel, not hotel. Located in area promoting adult entertainment supplies. Okay for college students and... More

First of all it doesn't have an elevator. So good luck trying to go up 4 flights of stairs with your luggage. The room was noisy as you can hear all the traffic from the street. It was very difficult to sleep since things don't shut down til 2am right below. The lady wasn't helpful at all when asked for... More

Bad things: • They do not speak english at all, but if you're willing... More

When I entered the hall way I began worrying about the choice I made. The hall way leading to the Hostel was unattractive and you have to go up three flights of old stairs. However once I went inside I was pleasantly surprised. The room though a bit small was like what I saw in the pictures. I got a... More

The entrance to Hostal Oxum is a little strange as it's through a gate and up 3 rickety flights of stairs. Once you get inside though, it's pretty nice. Our room was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The shower was really good and the AC worked well. There wasn't much natural light which was a shame. Breakfast is... More

I was surprised to read the comments from others saying the staff was rude, unpleasant, etc.; my experience was nothing of the sort. The staff - particularly Marcelo and Jaime - were very kind and accommodating, and assisted me with all my needs [which, admittedly, were very few]. The location is great, as is the quality of the room, the... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
