Two friends and I went for a 4 days trip in Madrid for clubbing. We didn't had much money so we booked Galica hostel. We would do that again because location is really, really good. Breakfast is poor buy fruit at the market but coffie ok.Cleaning ladys every morning do rooms and bring new towels.

I stayed in this hotel in last year Easter and it has a great location on Gran Via, 2 minutes from the metro station and 5 minutes from Plaza Mayor and other interesting sites. Don't expect luxury for the very low price you are paying, but the rooms are clean and you will be lucky if you get a room... More

We stayed at this hotel in May 2010 for three nights and while the hotel was in a very central location (handy for the underground network and within walking distance of all the main attractions), I certainly wouldn't be back. Firstly, the biggest problem is the noise, not the hotels fault I know, but despite being five or six storeys... More

After reading some of the other reviews i was a little apprehensive, but yet again I found a hotel with a lot of negative reviews perfectly acceptable. The hotel is in great location just on the gran via so right in the heart of the city. It is not an expensive hotel and you get what you pay for, it... More

for the price I paid I wasn't expecting much of this hotel, but even my low expectations weren't met. With one exception, the staff at reception were rude and surly . Not that the hotel could do anything about this, but it was also the noisiest hotel I've ever stayed at with people coming and going all night, slamming doors... More

I stayed at the Galicia for 3 nights earlier this month. It is a decent, cheap and safe place to stay. The location was excellent right in the heart of the city. The staff were friendly although they didnt speak much English at all. The breakfast was included, it was basic but ok. The only problem i experienced was with... More

I was a bit leery about this place after reading some of the comments but I found that it wasn't that bad. It's not the Ritz but it is clean. The price and location are excellent. It is right on the corner of Gran Via, so you don't really have to run into strange or scary people. My sister found... More

I read the two reviews after I had booked the hostel and took my 78 year old mother here for her birthday, mainly for Madrid rather than for the accommodation. The best point had to be the location. Right next to a metro stop and all the shops in the old town. Definately not a place I would go back... More

It is a very cheap, central hotel overlooking the Gran Via main road. But because of that it is extremely noisy, especially at night when you are trying to sleep. However, if you want to be central to shops etc. and don't mind the prostitutes hanging round outside then this is the place to go. Also it is right next... More
