My boyfriend was spending a whole month at this hostel (which meant a lot of money), and I stayed there for only 2 night and they made me pay for it, and we were in a single room, and didnt get the chance to move to a double room.

Fantastic price for its location. Clean and smart inside (looks like it has recently been refurbished). Smallish but basic rooms as you'd expect. Will definitely stay again. Nice cafe/bar directly opposite for breakfast

While the location of this hostal is right in the center, and it is not expensive, the comfort is spartan. The twin beds are adequate, the shower works, they are stingy with filling the soap, the towels are satisfactory, but over-all it is just that - inexpensive with just the bare minimum. The woman at the reception when I arrived... More

This was by far the 2nd best accommodation throughout my entire stay in Europe. It was cheap and yet very accessible as everything was close by and yet we didn't even need the metro to ride around, as you could simply walk from this location to Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor. I would stay here again and the staff... More

I stayed at the one star Hostal Cibeles for two nights in January 2013, paying 58 Euros for a single room. Pretty good value for money, I thought. Breakfast was not included; indeed, it was not on offer. However, there are plenty of cafes in the vicinity, so that wasn't a problem. The room was better than I'd expected and... More

My friend and I stayed at this hostal for 3 nights in Sept 2012. The room was clean, with high ceilings which gave it a spacious feel even though the bed area is very small. We had an ensuite bathroom with a blowdryer and fairly modern shower. The price was great at $45EUR/night. Internet was free but the signal was... More

Great place to stay for a few days in Madrid. In 5 minutes you'll walk into a metro station (Tribunal) to explore the city. Gran Via, Puerto del Sol and Calle Maior are 5 - 10 minutes by foot. Around the corner of the hostal you'll find plenty of great local shops, bars and taberna's. Just pick a beer and... More

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
