We stayed here for a weekend on our 5 week travels! The room was modern very simple but had a small balcony that we enjoyed a drink each night people watching from. I have to give a special mention to a gentleman at reception. Sorry we didn't catch his name but had recently returned from living in America. His customer... More

I went there with my wife and my niece earlier this June. I have to say; I´m very happy with Hostal Gala. Even though it´s only a hostel, they try to make it work like a 5-star resort as much as they can. We had reserved a triple room, but when we got there they gave us an apartment they... More

Booked a three bed room for my mam, sister and I. Wasn't sure if it would be too much like a hostel for my mam or not but we were on a budget and it was only €90 a night for the room. When we got there we were upgraded to a two bed apartment for free which was great.... More

I stayed here 4 nights in May. The location is great. You can walk to most sights and metro stations. There are little delis and supermarkets around the hotel so you can buy drinks and etc cheap. And there are take-out restaurants, cafes or tapas bars (less touristic). You can also walk up to less touristic neighborhood (less than 5... More

I stayed at the Hostal Gala for three nights in May. The room was very clean with a small (but nice) bathroom. There were large french doors which opened to a small patio that overlooked the main street. It was a bit noisy at night but after shutting the doors and shutters it wasn't that bad. The location is very... More

I stayed at Hostal Gala for five nights in May. This is one of the many mini-hotels in Madrid, that occupy an upper floor of a traditional townhouse...in this case the second floor of a builing located on the south side of Plaza Santo Domingo. And this location is excellent. Most major attractions of central Madrid are within walking-distance. There... More

This hostel is great. Staff are very friendly, nice rooms and good location. Even though you are close to the city there is not that much noise. The only issue is that there is no kitchen, but there are plenty of places around the hostel to eat.

Guided by Tripadvisor, I booked one night here for a stopover on my way elsewhere, and liked it so much I booked for my return as well. It is indeed very central and has a nice inexpensive flair to it; each room is a bit distinct (at least the wallpaper) and I recognized numerous accessories (glasses, mirrors, ironing board, toothbrush...
