Our third visit to this lovely small hotel, from 12th-15th June . . . as ever it is hard to beat at 55 euros per room, per night, with an unrivalled central Madrid location between the main Sol square and the spectacular Plaza Mayor. The rooms are small but spotless, boasting excellent air con. and also very decent HD televisions... More

I've never stayed in a hostal before so it took a little getting used to. The single rooms that myself and my son had are small and very basic, and the bathrooms are also very small, but they are very clean and serviced daily. I am really pleased with the location, it is so close to everything we have been... More

We stayed 2 weekend nights in this hostal. The location is super convenient and beautiful. Easy to reach from sol metro station and a few steps away from the beautiful plaza mayor. Lots of restaurants and bars at walking distance, but set away from the noisy streets. The room was small, but had all necessary comforts and was extremely clean... More

Rooms aren't large, and I understand the difference between a "Hotel" and a "Hostal" has to do with amenities--so no breakfast and minimal freebies in the room. Elevator! It's a great value since our room was spotless and we had a little balcony from which we could watch the comings and goings on the street below and on Plaza Santa... More

This is a great location for the visitor to Madrid. 100 yards frin Plaza del Sol, and 50 yards from Plaza Mayor. After 5 days here, we had walked to most of the more interesting things to do in Madrid. Museums, plaza's and even the palace, the largest palace in Europe (2600 rooms) are all within a 15 minute walk.... More

I definitely recommend this place if you are on a budget and want a good, simple room with really great hosts. It is in an excellent location if you want to be in the tourist center of Madrid, right between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The hostal is inexpensive, up to date, and spotless. The rooms have double pane... More

A friendly, cosy place in a family-run hotel, nice people, very careful, turning on the heat on cold rainy nights, I felt at home, poor internet but improving by the middle of my stay, sometimes few shampoo, or soap provided, I would recommend Hostel Santa Cruz for its view and location mostly,and for its tidiness, quietness and warmth, as well....

Right in the center of town - just a few blocks from the Plaza Sol metro stop, this was a great jumping off point for all of our Madrid adventures. 3 of us stayed in a room with 3 twin beds. The room was tiny but we weren't paying much so we were fine with it. The main reason I... More
