I had booked and paid in advance of arriving by plane. Due to luggage problems I arrived a little later than expected. Back In the uk my home was rung (while I was in the air) saying that the hostel would close at 1130pm. This had no been preinformed. I made my way to the hostat at midnight

This comment is not correct. We inform clearly in our pages that the check in is until 23.30. The hostel is located on a floor and it is necesary to ring the bell when the client arrives. The hostel is small and the noise of bell can hear and disturb to the guests who are sleeping. Nevertheless, if the customer... More

The person in charge of the hostel was very rude. He also discriminated me for my nationality. I love to travel and always I have found friendly people ready to help me! Unfortunately this guy treated me as trash LITERALLY. The reservation was under the name of my best friend and I managed to arrive first to Madrid (she had... More

Well, well, well... We were warmly welcomed by sorrounding scaffolding. I phoned up the number on the door and guy basicly said, that his English is no good and we have to ring the bell, which looked as it doesn't work, it was pushed inside the board a bit, but surprisingly, it worked. We went in. It was pretty cold... More

Good location, clean and tidy hostel. Enjoyed a nice private room with en suite facilities. Staff very helpful and pleasant. Not much of a view but that doesn't matter too much. Cold when we were there, but rooms well heated. Would stay here again, no question

The location is amazing: at the Fuencarral strret, close to the Gran Via. So, you have many stores, restaurants and places to go in few minutes. The room is ok: the mattress makes a weird noise. There's a sink inside and 3 bathrooms for five rooms. The bathrooms are clean, but not spotless. There's no lift and is horrible to... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
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.
