I stayed here on my own for two nights. I asked for a room with a balcony, fridge and microwave and got all three. The room was simply furnished and fairly small, but big enough, and the bed was a comfortable double, pushed up against the wall. The bathroom was small but clean and looked quite new. The location is... More

The hostal is good located, near the centre, bus and metro stop. The room/ bathroom was very small and would profit from some renovation. But they tried to keep it clean and for the price it was fine. You can hear the neighbouring bathroom and guests, but for low budget it's ok.

Hostal Prim was a great surprise. I must admit i was a little skeptical before booking a Hostal , ( never been in one before) , but its good price and location near Plaza de Cibeles , start line of the Madrid half marathon I was running, made me choose it. 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 The day shift and night shift managers were sullen & withdrawn, not helpful at all with questions.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

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
