I stayed here with my wife for a couple of days, it was our fist visit to Madrid and we were looking for something cheap but well located (were were planning on staying most of the time walking and not in the hotel). This was definitely the right place. The hostal is very simple but efficient. Our room wasn't pretty,... More

I have been there 3or 4 times I think and it is always a great option. The rooms are comfortable and the beds good enough. The design is a but old but it's only a hostal. We love the location because it's close to chueca. It was winter and the room was warm enough. The staff is really nice so... More

The hotel is situated about 100 yards north of the Gran Via - about 5 minutes walk to the Puerta del Sol. From the airport you can take the train (line C1 from terminal 4 to Recoletos station - 10 minutes walk to the hotel) - this costs 2.5 Euros. If you arrive at one of the other terminals there...

This nice hostal is very well located. Near Gran via, Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, you can walk to most of the attractions, and of course subway station is very close. There is no need to take a taxi from the airport, you can easily take the bus (EMT Express) from airport to Plaza de Cibeles, and then walk about... More

Wife and I stayed here for 3 nights in May to do a walkabout short trip in Madrid. Location wise this was very good for us. 15 minutes walk to the Royal Palace / Plaza de Espana / Temple of Debod in the west and 15 minutes to the Retiro Park in the east. Plenty of restaurants and cafes nearby.... More

I am not a light sleeper. I am from NYC, I can sleep through nearly anything. But this hostel had the thinest walls I have ever encountered. It was honestly ridiculous, I could hear EVERYTHING that happened in the hostel. By the end of a night full of the sounds of back up toilets being fixed, keys jangling, night watchmen... More

This is my 2nd time in this hostal this trip - its a regular spot for me and ideally situated. It is just a few mins walk (max 5) from Gran Via station. Clean as always, very informal. Plenty of places to eat and drink nearby. See my other reviews for more information. Just putting this one here to say... More

I have stayed here 6-7 times over the past 2 years, using it as a base for travels through Spain and elsewhere. My longest stay was almost a month! The staff are delightful, the rooms largish, bright and spotless with bed linen crisp and changed regularly, and the location is fantastically central. My only minor issues are that towels could...

Hi. I came back to this hostal, and stayed a total of 6 nights. Nothing has changed, excellent service, clean, wireless still works. Nice to be remembered too .... Double glazing and AC a real bonus, good nights sleep, no noise. This place is a real find, and so easy to get to everywhere - Gran Via metro is 4... More
