Our accomodation was very satisfactory. The room was very clean. The staff very cordial and helpful. I definitely recommend this hostel. I 've been around the world and have stayed in several 5 star hotels without character, this experience with Hostal Greco was charming. I will stay in this hostel again when I visit Madrid next time.

Well, Hostal Greco is fantastic to save some euros and sleep in the city center but don't expect much of an hostal with several decades on its history. Old, small rooms, bad deco and old furniture. The locations is superb just a few steps from Gran Via and the subway station. The breakfast is at the coffee shop around the... More

It is run by a middle aged Greek family. There is no breakfast like most others in the area. The rooms, furniture is very old. The sheet, linen and the room smells bad.The door of the room is like a room door in a house with the old style key, and some broken, so we didn't feel safe. The shower... More

It seemed the ideal place to spend our holiday in Madrid. It is located near the center, near the "Gran Via" and the metro station. The hostel is on the second floor of a building in common with ordinary homes. Upon our arrival we were given a key to open the main door of the ground floor. You will be... More

Terrible owner. Grumpy. Such disrespectful behaviour. Bad taste in decoration. But thats not the ponit. These people need to learn how to respect women. Noisy

It's interesting, but I had very similar experiences as those two earlier reviewers - I stayed in another hostal first, but after one sleepless night I left and bumped into this nice place. I had a room with a balcony facing the street and it did get a bit noisy late at night but somehow I slept very well dispite... More

I too had a bad experience with my first accommodation in Madrid - the Hostal Rofer. After 2 nights [of very little sleep because of the noise from other guests or their 'visitors'???], I split and just happened upon Hostel Greco as it is just off the Gran Via and therefore handy for Gran Via Metro [100 meters], the Telefonica...

My friends and I went to Madrid without much idea on how to go around except for the travel tips and places I found here on trip advisor. We stayed at Hostal Villagracia for the first two nights and it was HORRIFIC! Seriously. Luckily, we had to leave after two days because the room was booked already. Then we found... More
