Not very friendly staff here. I had quite a few problems getting information. The wifi was really bad a few days and the staff insisted it was my computer even though it was multiple people having the same problem. The breakfast was great. Laundry on site which was really nice. Rooms were good, had to switch rooms half way through... More

Hola Adrian, Thanks for your feed back. However to improve our services we need you to tell us specifically what happened with our staff. Infact, if you look to the rest of reviews, you could see that we have many positive evaluations. Regarding the fact you had to swich room, we apologise with you, but sometimes is imposible for us...

This is a very big hostel- you won't be able to tell until you go up the stairs and look for your room. The rooms are very nice and the place is very clean. You have your own bathroom in each room so you don't have to run down the hall grasping a towel or see anyone else do the... More

I was with some friends in the last Easter week in a 6 bedroom with private bathroom. Is perfectly located, close to Chueca, Malasaña, Gran Via, 25 minutes from El Retiro... Cleaning service is included and daily. The problem was that I was in room 8, close to the breakfast room, what it means that from 9.00H there was a... More

At under 20 Euros per person per night, for a private 4 person room with a private bathroom, Albergue Juvenil was a good hostel in a really great part of Madrid, Malasana. The bathroom was huge with a lot of counterspace and separated toilet area and shower so multiple people could get ready at the same time. Room also had... More

Cracking doors, suffocating dorms, out-of-order lifts, frequent black-outs and stinking corridors cannot be seen through the (above-shown) image Gallery yet strongly odours are readily noticeable upon arrival. Backpackers -you´ve been warned- bring over your own produce: Orange-juice at breakfast will forcefully lead your stomach for a dash visit to WC ("arsenic & old lace" revisited) and I discovered for a...

We stayed there for three nights. Was very clean. The wifi only works in the common room area but it works great there. The workers were extremely nice. We had a private bath, which was very clean. It is in a building that houses a kindergarten so we were concerned it would be loud but we really did not hear... More

This place is great! Lots of common areas and plenty of space in the rooms. Seems like they arent just in it for the money as theres so much room to breathe. Great staff willing to help whenever asked. One lady even rang up and especially booked us a table to have paella at her favourite restaurant. Great sized ensuites... 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.
