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.

At 11:30PM you are asked to whisper only, kitchen seats 4 people & closes at 11PM, 5 mins into the shower water up to your... More

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
