Traveling to Madrid on business, I found this small inexpensive hotel right in the heart of town. It's an old hotel, but offers all I need. A clean room with comfortable bed and a hot shower. It's located on Calle Gran Via, a street bursting with energy. Restaurants, theater, shops. I only had to walk a block to the nearest... More

This hostal is placed very handy right in the city center. Easy to access both historical places, shopping areas and Madrids nightlife. That is pretty much whats good with it. The rooms are small and simple and the so called WIFI that they promise in their adds is suppose to work in some rooms. However I got a room were... More

Staff was really gentle but the room itself was just to small for 3 people and old looking. Don't even think about having a nice bathroom, it is just big enough for 1 and the shower is not actually a real shower but more a hip bath.

We were a group of 35 people & stayed in hostel for two days. Money was stolen from one of our companions while the entire group were out doing some sightseeing. Her luggage was forcibly opened. Like the other reviewers, we had the same experience with the air-con. It did not seem to work. Water from the faucet also kept... More
