I should've read other reviews before I book this hostel. I went there with my family and didn't know there was no elevator. I was the only man and can lift heavy luggages from the base to the hostel. Beside this, everything was great. Room was clean and nice. But I will never book this hostel again.

1 night stay would be tolerable as it's located in central madrid, close to everything. But it's in a pretty dodgy suburb, with dodgy entry, no lift & very run down stairs. Room clean enough. When we showered, water leaked into the bedroom, huge puddle. Staff doesnt speak a word of english, so very difficult in a city which we've... More

I stayed in hostal oxum for a week and i can tell how negative this experience was for me and my girlfriend. Don't trust website photos, they aren't realistic and you can't understand how small the rooms are! The entrance was horrible and we had to go upstairs without lift and the hostal's at the third floor! The staff isn't... More

The hostel is very uncomfortable! The pictures on the homepage do not represent the real condition of the rooms. Breakfast only exists of toast bread with ketchup and a milk with juice - ihhhhh! No coffee... The entry was the most terrible thing of the hostel! No workable air conditioning in the room which means we had to leave the... More

Coming down a busy and vibrant street, you're met with big steel gates and you have to ring the intercom for access. Go through the gates and you will feel terrified, until being met by a nice lady who indicated the stairs to us. We though they were clean and well lit, despite being well worn. After we made it...

Upon arrival to hostal oxum the entrance makes you fear the worst. Up the rickety wooden staircase and through the door a modern and nicely decorated hostal awaits. Initially the wait to be checked in was off putting and the faulty air conditioning made the room rather warm but the attentive and friendly service by the two staff despite not... More

Booked this, saw more bad reviews so booked a back up just in case! Lucky we did! Is dark and dingy on arrival, They didn't have enough space for the 5 of us booked, and rooms so small and crammed we could compromise! The rooms looked better than I had anticipated from reading reviews online, but hall way and entrance... More

Can't beat the price/quality ratio. I usually stay at 4* hotels for work travel. I neglected to do any planning and needed a place before heading to Barcelona. Arrival was daunting: sad facade, no elevator (lugged 2 suitcases up 3 flights of stairs) and was told that the room was being vacated at noon, so I might get in around... More

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

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.
