Hostal Benamar is wonderful. Good location and very very spacious and clean room. The owner is so helpful and sweet. He helped me with my luggage and made checking in following a long day of traveling smooth and worry free. Internet access in the room was super fast and free. My only regret is that I didn't have more time... More

The location of hostel is good, right in the shopping area. The room was clean and simple. Everything was shiny. There is air condition, a mini fridge and a plasma tv in room, even a computer. What is missing was hair dryer. The owner is a very sweet man, who helps a lot. Room 206 was not quite during the... More

The owner of this hostal is the sweetest man I've ever met at an accommodation. Make sure you ask for his suggestions and take them. He guides you away from tourist trap restaurants and gives great recommendations for cheap places to eat. On top of that, the room was spotless each and every night. The location is also ideal. It...

Our room was clean and spacious and included a computer for internet access. Maid service was a pleasant surprise considering it was a hostal. Be aware that the hostal is two flights up with no elevator. The somewhat eccentric owner was very nice, friendly and helpful.

Well we booked this hostal after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we must admit this was a great place to stay. It was bang in the centre of things where everything was accessible. You infact have a Romanticism museum right opposite of the hostal. It has absolutely amazing rooms with great hospitality by the owners (Jose). Jose is... More

Very nice place with a central location, the metro station is too close. Also the romanticism museum is directly infront of the hostel. It's very good value for money. Rooms are spacious & tidy. The owner "Jose" is extremely friendly, I would like to thank him as he helped us in our "excess" luggages & went to grab a taxi... More

What everyone with 4/5 star rating has said is right. The location is superb, the cleanliness without question and the staff go over and beyond the call of duty. In Madrid, nobody speaks English but here, at the Benamar, they try their best and always have a smile. When you meet the owner, ask his advice( and take it). Local... More
