Hostal Prim was a great surprise.

And it was a great choice. The hostel is... More

I had to stay in this "posada" for a couple of nights due to force majeure and as a former serviceman, I am used to sleep anywhere. The rooms are quite small and the bathroom, at least in my room was like a section of my closet. Nonetheless, the rooms are spic-and-span and very quiet, no rowdiness a conservative, reasonable...

In a privileged area in the center of Madrid, came across the Hostal Prim, was one of the best surprises of Madrid, a budget place but with characteristics of many hotels I visited in Rome, Paris, London or New York, has a fantastic value for money, the room had bathroom, LCD TV, AC, mini-fridge, microwave, safe box, hairdryer, free WIFI...

Recommended public transportation from the airport: On the EasyJet flight we bought the Tourist Transport Season Ticket Voucher for 3 calendar days that was valid in zone A. This pass gives you unlimited use of all forms of public transport in Madrid. It cost us 17 Euros. We then exchanged the voucher at the “Metro Madrid Customer Service Desk“ at... More

After reading such glowing reviews, it was a terrible disappointment to stay at Hostal Prim. The day shift and night shift managers were sullen & withdrawn, not helpful at all with questions. The room was adequate, but the window opened up into a shared, dark, ugly shaft with many other floors of homes/business/not sure what. Heard piano practicing all night,... More

I needed a room close to the Rock n Roll Madrid Marathon start line at Plaza de Colon. This hostal was about .3 miles away from the start line. I made a reservation directly on the hostal's website for our stay. The people at the hotel spoke English. Credit cards are accepted as payment. In addition, you get a set... More

I chose this hotel because of it's close proximity to the Madrid Marathon start line. As a single woman traveling on her own, this hostal provided a safe and comfortable stay. It is located in the center of the city, in a very safe area steps away from buses, trains and nightlife. I was perfectly comfortable walking out of my... More

Hostal Prim is a nice little hotel in downtown Madrid. The location is a short walk to Madrid's shopping district and near some excellent restaurants. The room itself was small, but very clean and secure. The bed was comfortable and the staff was very friendly and professional. The free WiFi worked well in the room. If you are a traveler... More
