I chose it because of the good reviews that it had gotten. Usually the score is a decent indicator, but not in this case. The hostel is old and has a creepy feel to it somehow. At night the corridors are so dark that I even walked into a wall, sober! Fumbling in the dark to find the lock on... More

Just a quick update to my previous reviews, based on two more stays. The management now recognizes me which makes the stay more pleasant in some ways. I've gotten nicer rooms (perhaps not coincidental) including singles with windows and flat screen TVs at the basic single/shared bath rate. However, my last stay was in early July and that stay proved... More

I stayed here 4 nights in the beginning of my Spain trip. The price for a single with shared bath was reasonable (less than 30 Euros). The room had a single bed, a desk, a wardrobe, and a small TV. I never used the TV because the internet that is available in the public spaces reached my room, and I... More

Thank you Mirentxu and especially the helpful and friendly staff. We had a very pleasant stay with my boyfriend in a single 2-beds room which was daily cleaned, beds made and the hostel has a great city center location (just 5 minutes walk to the metro Sol, yellow line number 3). If you are not a deep sleeper though, kindly... More

I stayed in a single budget room for 7 nights. For such a low price, I had low expectations. But the room was clean, comfortable and had plenty of room. Large wardrobe closet, dresser, comfortable twin bed, sink, flat screen tv & heater. Towel & toiletries were provided. My room was directly behind the front desk- so I could sometimes... More

Was back during a long weekend. Booked directly on their website, so got the rock-bottom price of 20-25 euros/night during my stay. However, that also meant I got the lowest quality room. Tiny, single bed without much support, no washbasin, no mirror, no TV, no window (there was a opening of some kind partly covered up that opened into the... More

The Mirentxu was a bit like a funeral home; the lights were dim and the place was creepy. This is a hostal not an hotel, but there are good bright happy hostals to be found. Their website pictures are beautiful, stylish, modern. Based on my experience, the truth is the complete opposite. What photoshop and airbrushing can do is just... More

I must be the only one who feels like this but there is no Air Conditioning in the rooms at this place. After we paid and checked in they told us there is no AC and their website says that when we made the reservation. Neither their website states this nor does Hotels.com where we made the booking. Also when... More

O Hostal Mirentxu é gerido por uma simpática e acolhedora família. O hostal fica numa localização fantástica, pertíssimo da Puerta del Sol e dos três principais museus madrilenos. O quarto era acolhedor, confortável, limpo e com boas instalações. A casa de banho era básica mas muito limpa. O serviço de quarto está disponível todos os dias. É caso para afirmar:... More

If you are an independent Spanish speaker, the Mirentxu can be a great value option. I used to live in Madrid, so I knew it was in a great location that was safe and convenient to all the major sites. I had a single without bath right near the front desk. The proximity was not a problem since the front... More
