We stayed there for a whole week, lovely room, and the place was always clean. It is centrally located -right downtown, in Chueca, the trendy area of Madrid, just a few minutes walk to the main subway station (airport), plaza mayor, sol, gran via and el retiro park. The staff, like all Spaniards, were so friendly, making sure at all... More

Among the hostels I stayed in during my month backpacking in Europe, I was very pleased with this one. Although the facilites are average and the building itself feels a bit cramped, it was clean and the staff were kind, friendly, and helpful. Great location too.

I stay at the Barbiere International near Chueca and it's really nice. It's very small and quiet and the staff is helpful and friendly. The rooms, bathroom, kitchen is cleaned everyday and they even make your bed! Everyone has their own locker with a key, free of charge. The kitchen could be a bit bigger but otherwise everything is fine.... More

It was totally value for money! Clean and with really helpful stuff, however if you really want to meet lots of people, this is not an excellent place for that. The hostel is quite small, and they do not organize a lot of activites. But i must mention, i had the chance about meeting others :)

Ok, the rooms are basic, but they are clean. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is a nice kitchen you can use and a marvelous terrace open til 11pm. There are plenty of bars and restaurants around which leaves the neighborhood full of life (and noise) until late in the night. If you are young, tolerant and come... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighborhood Profile
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.
