We had a lovely stay of 3 nights here. It is in the middle of the street, just a few meters from the metro station (Tribunal). Our host, Jose, was very accommodating and was always there when we needed him. The room was clean although the bathroom was small. Please note that there is a 3 story climb up some... More

Well, I'm usually not too picky about the places I stay in but I still enjoy a little comfort after a long day of walking. I didn't even get that in this place. When the taxi my fiancée and I took from the airport stopped in front of the hostal, I was so convinced it was a mistake that I... More

We stayed here 2 nights and have another booking for 4 nights coming. We really liked this hostal due to the price and to the qualities. We had a big room for three persons, incuding a bathroom and a small minibar. The hostal is in a quiet part of Madrid, near nice restaurants. To Sol it takes around 15 min... More

Centrally located, perfect for tourist, shopping, food & night life are just around the corner. Very close to Gran Via-the shopping street in central madrid, the one street you should not miss. The rooms are spacious and very clean. "Jose" the person in-charge is very kind, he even helped us carry our luggages (only downside is no elevator) Comfortable stay... More

I stayed there for almost a week and I was very comfortable and happy with every aspect of the hostel. Stay here, the best among low budgets places plus the owner, as almost every review states is very nice and never gives a problem of any kind! .

We stayed two nights in Hostal Benamar. I endorse the positive comments by the other reviewers. Juan buzzed us in and met us on the landing. When he saw we were senior citizens, he offered us a room on the ground floor so we would not have to walk up the steps. We had reserved a room for two, but... More

I never take a shower without my flip-flops, this hotel is so clean that I did not need them. The room was spacious and as clean as the bathroom, the location was fantastic, close to restaurants, nightlife, yet the room do not get the noise at all. It is also very close to a metro station, which connect really easy... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighborhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
