Stayed at the Los Amigos Hostel last December. As expected it was for backpackers. Nevertheless, the staff were very friendly and helpful. They spoke really good English and even though I made an effort and spoke really poor Spanish, they understood me. I thought the rooms for a hostel were pretty clean and comfortable. Better than what I experienced in... More

If you're looking for a clean, tidy hostel close to attractions then this is a great choice. However, that's as much as can be offered. Everything in this hostel has a cost. When I opt to pay extra for a hostel that provides breakfast, I like to eat a large breakfast that fuels me for the day ahead. Unfortunately, we... More

The hostel not only has an inconvenient price, but restricts everything: The "free" included breakfast has a guy for CONTROLLING the bread, ONLY a toast OR a really little bowl of cereal, you can also have ONE coffe OR milk. I felt totally uncomfortable like there was always someone watching my actions for everything in the hostel. There are prices... More

I am writing this review because I really want to appreciate how nice the staff and the owner of the hostel are! So, I arrived to the hostel yesterday evening just to get to know that I made a stupid mistake and reserved a wrong night through the online booking. As the hostel was already full, the owner calmed me... More

My husband and i stayed for 5 nights in a great private bedroom. Very confortable, clean and well decorated. The hostel wasn't full, maybe because of the low season. Its located in a nice building and with lift. Close to metro and many restaurants, bars, stores and you can walk to many tourists atractions. Ruben, which i guess is the... More

I stayed there for a few days and it was great. The hostel is very close to 2 metro stations and the puerta de sol. In this area you may find many restaurants, el museo del jamon, and many little bars and pubs. It is also close to Prado and Museo Real. Rooms are not very big, but big enough... More

The hostel is really comfortable and I really like it. They have a nice kitchen, good room(clean!) and it's at a good location! The staff are friendly and helpful. Nothing bad about it that I can say. Absolutely recommend this hostel to stay.

Location was perfect--couldn't have picked a better spot. Metro, food, clubs, sights, etc. all close by. One of the guys in my room woke up with bug bites all over him after the first night. Staff did their job, but I wouldn't say they were friendly. Kitchen closes around 10, and throughout the day they block you (or kick you... More

Excellent hostel. The location cannot be better, we stayed in Madrid for a week, never have the need to take the metro. Rooms, toilets and kitchen are spacious and clean. The owners are very friendly and helpful. It is one of the best hostel we have ever stayed in Europe.

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
