We stayed in a 3-bed room. Kitchen and bathroom was to share. We did not use the kitchen because there is no space and nothing to use. Any equipment not available. The bathroom was clean and basic. It is close to all sights. The worst was the loud room. We had a room facing the busy San Bernardo street. The... More

We've been traveling the world for all of 2014 (Jan-Dec), and this place is average compared to most other places. This place doesn't really look like the pictures. It's not bad, but not as clean or well kept as the pictures make it seem. The check process was clunky. All in all the water was hot, the kitchen was usable,... More

The hostel which is what I would call it it's very centric and near a big avenue where you can take the tourbus to see the whole city. The place is very clean including the shower which you have to share. The rooms are small but defenetly confortable to sleep. The snacks in the kitchen are good including the coffee... More

Knowing the city very well, I deliberately booked this guesthouse on calle San Bernardo because the area is fine to return to at night for a solo female. However, the place which I was actually staying was 10-15 minutes' walk away in the middle of the red light district. I didn't mind this too much, but the only staff member... More

It seemed to be friendly place and rooms are like in friend's flat . Very nice and friendly athmosphere . I recomend this Babel Guesthouse for people who love "freedom travelling ', the center of the Madrit , next to the most important madrit"s atractions . We love this place Tomasz W. from Poland

I enjoyed my stay at Babel Guesthouse in Madrid - I was just looking for somewhere conveniently located and inexpensive and this provided both. The room wasn't huge, but was big enough for two. The location was really good, near Plaza de España and only 10-15 minutes walk from the very centre - we spent the whole weekend walking around... More

They didn't have a room when we got there, but they put us in their sister hostel, about 50mts away. This seems to be a common occurrence. Our room was plain, but comfortable. The bathroom was small, but adequate and with plenty of very hot water. The staff went well out of their way to make sure we were comfortable.... More

I booked a room one month before traveling to Madrid. When we got there - very good location - they didn't have an empty room! But it was good, after all: they sent us to a very close bed and breakfast with a private bathroom - the one we've booked at Babel was a shared one. The new place -... More
