This was the tiniest room I've ever stayed in, decorated with the most improbable taste: an unfortunate mix of Japanese, Egyptian and old France, with all sorts of colors and textures. The bed was hard, and narrower than the usual double beds you find in hotels. In the bathroom, I had to step over the toilet to reach the shower.... More

Spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The owners, Angela and her husband are lovely. Nice central location, but the wooden staircase outside the hostal make one of the rooms a bit noisy when people are coming and going. I have stayed there a few times now and will happily stay there again. Internet in the front room is ok, but I... More

I've stayed at this Hostal twice and highly recommend it. Its convenient location, price, cleanliness and the friendly staff are the best features of this place. There's no breakfast, but there are many places around where you can have a nice breakfast for less than 5 euros. Mr. and Mrs. Sanchez are the nice couple that run the place, you'll... More

We arrived at the door to this Hostal and could have turned round without even going in - but then not wanting to judge a book by its cover, went in for a look round. We were greeted by an extremely friendly hostess who was most welcoming and showed us our rooms. They were perfectly big enough (given this is... More

Its a friendly and nice place to stay. The room was small and we could hear everything that happen on the hall. But everything is clean and neat. The street is a bit "dark" but it was central with bus and subway quite close by. Also good markets around. There was no breakfast. The staff was a very nice lady!

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
