Great location! Safe street, only a few minutes walk to main areas. The room was very basic & clean, with brand new washroom ensuite. Room was cleaned daily & new towels were given. Front staff was very helpful and welcoming. It was a bit noisy in the mornings d/t a resaturant being right below us, but who goes to Madrid... More

A year ago in the summer, I've been in Madrid,Spain for the second time, after the long period passed from my first stay in the 1979.That was immediately after the Generalisimus Franco stepped down from the power and handed it to the king Huan Carlos. The country changed meanwhile a lot, in direction to establish more sustainable democratic standards and... More

This is a clean, well run hostel in a very safe location. For the absolute base rate of 25 EUR you get a simple but clean room with visually acceptable bed sheets (no horrible dark patterns and furry old fabric), small flat screen TV, large window that can be opened to an internal courtyard. The street it is on is... More

I was in Madrid for 5 weeks, and stayed in 2 rooms here. I was a longer stay during the off season, so I emailed ahead to see if they'd make me a deal, and I did get a nice discounted rate, which was awesome! I really recommend this place for the nice new owner, Christian, and the cleanliness. I... More

I cannot believe how negative some of the reviews for The Principado are. True it had a slightly ramshackle air to it but this is Spain after all and a hostal at that,not a five-star hotel. But that was then.Since this May a new owner has taken over and his new broom has proverbially swept clean. The rooms have been... More

There were so many cockraches and the place reeked of raid. I am staying at a different hotel now.

Based on the 4 positive evaluations below of it, I chose this hostel on a recent trip to Spain. Unfortunately, this is the worst establishment I've come across in seven years of travelling. But let me start with the good. It’s in a great central location. I chose a private room with a shared bathroom. But as most travellers know,... More

Great location, service from desk staff superb, very helpfull. Rather old world but satisfactory. Shared shower but not a problem. At first rather worried about location , but later realised it was at the back of some law courts so security was really tight, cameras and security guards at all times. Located two minutes from all amenities, shopping, museums, local... More

I stayed here Dec 27, 06--Jan 1, 07. I paid a total of roughly 230 USD for my stay that I booked with WHR hotels. This hostal is located about a 5 minute walk from the Sevilla subway station (red line). I easily walked from my hotel to attractions nearby listed in the previous review for this hostal. The Sol...

We stayed at the Hostal Principado two or three times and I have recommended it to others. It is very centrally located for visiting the Prado, the Retiro Park, and other sights. The family that runs it is very helpful. The rooms are incredibly clean, but simply furnished. There is an elevator. If you are the type of traveler who... More
