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

My husband and I found this place on tripadvisor and stayed here for a week for a quick vacation on a budget. First time in madrid. Location is perfect, one block (or less) from the metro station. Many places to eat and drink around here.. ask José (the owner I think) about Madrid Madriz and the churros place (we went... More

The situation of this place was excellent. It is near all shops, bars and tourist attractions. Not too noisy as it is on a quiet street. This is a budget hotel but very clean, with computer, good wifi and flat screen TV. The sign is easy to miss as it is above the first floor. Don't come with heavy suitcases... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in August and were very impressed with the value and facilities of this hostal. The first impression is a little daunting, as in Madrid apparently it is common for hostels to be on upper floors. We carried a heavyish suitcase up 3 floors (carpeted) before we found the reception area. But once there the... More

We enjoyed our stay here, especially our conversations with the friendly and attentive host. There are three flights of steps and no lift but he insisted on carryiong our bags, and gave us very good tips for local meals (including the wonderful cafe Madrid Madriz where we enjoyed very good three course lunches and wine for three people for 30...

This hostal is very well situated: a few steps away from lively Fuencarral and Malasana, very close to the heart of Madrid (Sol, Gran Via). It is easily reachable from the airport by metro (stop:tribunal). The owner of the place is really friendly and helpful. The rooms are a good size and spotless clean. There is free wifi access and...

A very comfortable room in a pleasant hostal just slightly out of the main central area of Madrid but only about 15 minute walk to Sol. No lift but the owner is more than happy to assist with luggage, order taxi and generally make you feel at home.
