Stayed at Hostal Alonso for six days in a single room with a shared bathroom. Best thing about the place was its central location - about five minutes walk from Sol Metro and most of the sights you'd be interested in seeing were walkable from there. Plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and cafes close by. Room was perfectly adequate, with... More

Overall we had a great stay at Hostal Alonso in the centre of Madrid! We stayed here for 2 days(23-25jan 2015) in a room with private bathroom. Key points: - Great location; right in the centre of Madrid, many bars in the same street and in streets around the corner, quiet at night (not noisy), 3min walk to Sol/plaza Mayor,... More

Location of hostal is in city centre, near Sol station. It is on the top of the Calle Espoz y Mina in the building on the third floor. It wasn't so easy to find it because signalization is bad and there are lot of hostels in the street. It is pretty basic. Wifi signal was poor in the room. Our... More

We were very pleasantly surprised by the accommodation. Neat, clean, quiet inside ;-) Hostesses were very friendly and accomodating, offering a ventilator without us even asking. We managed fine with our few words of Spanish and their little English. Change of towels every other day! Wifi was terrible, all else como excellente!

Well, if you are seeking a luxurious place you must search for another hotel or hostal because this is not what you will get. As you can expect it is a cheap place where you can find the most basic things. It has around 20 rooms, with only a sink, the toilet or shower are reserved to the 4 bathrooms... More

Would you like to spend 4 days in Madrid? This is the perfect place. Located in the city center, you'll be really close to the major turistic attraction of Madrid. You can go to Plaza Major, Puerta del Sol, Museums and all the many classic shops just on foot and the Madrid's nightlife (where beer is cheaper than water) is... More

Typical room, clean with sink in it. Shared washroom which is also clean. Easy going and helpful staff. What more could you want after working the morning and then spending 28 hours in transit. We took the metro at 5 euro and were there in about half an hour

This hostel is as basic as they come for private accommodations with a shared bath. With the intention of only staying one night (because we couldn't believe how expensive other hostels were in the city) but we ended up staying 2 nights. Some may think it could use some updating but in the way, it all adds to it's romantic... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
