All the good things you;ve read about this hostal are true. The staff were extremely helpful, the rooms are basic but freah and clean and well insulated form the outside noise. Insulation from noise of the next rooms is not so great but it wasn't really an issue. Importantly it's only a short walk from the main station ( Atocha)... More

We stayed for a few nights in mid-June. The location is perfect (walking distance to the train station and several major attractions) and the room was clean and comfortable. We would definitely stay again and recommend to friends.

Three of us stayed for 3 nights. You couldn't ask for a better location or more hospitable staff. A 10 minute walk to the museums and perhaps 20-25 minutes to Playa Major and Playa del Sol. Best of all, Josefa and Nieves went out of their way to make our stay comfortable. Ask them for restaurant recommendations and don't forget... More

We stayed in Hostal Barrera in late May, 2014. Located on C. Atocha not far from the Atocha Renfe and metro stations and a 10 minute walk to the Prado, this hostal is well situated.

We stayed in Barrera 7-11 May 2014. The location was excellent.
