Great price and excellent location right off Puerta del Sol. The hotel is close to the metro and several great restaurants. Rooms were air conditioned and each had their own bathroom, tv, and safe box to store valuables during the day (even though the rooms were very secure). My room had the best blackout curtains I've ever seen. The sun... More

We were received in a friendly and efficient way, and the room cleaning was done regularly. (The reception was not always available, though, and more information about getting around in the city, as well as utilising the transport system would have been very useful, especially when contacting visitors after confirmation. One example is the diffference in transport cost between a... More

Buget accomodation in an excellent location just a few steps from Puerto de sol. The rooms where cleaned daily, had aircon and an comfortable bed and their own bathroom. The hotel also offered free wifi. I guess that this place is a redone Spanish apartment and therefore a little noisy from the hallway since the doors are thin, if you... More

I recently stayed in the Playa Hostal arriving late and lost one cold night. The best thing about the place was the price, and I negotiated a better price on a longer stay. I think it was excellent value for money. I liked the room; it was just so in every respect. (Slightly small mattress, but hey I'm tall :)... More

We reserved a room—and paid a deposit—at the Hostal Playa nearly two months before arriving in Madrid from Morocco. We were exhausted and it was late, but when we arrived we discovered that they had our booking, but were booked solid. Unapologetically they recruited their sad-looking teenage employee (someone's son?) to lead us about a dozen blocks—to a worse neighborhood—to... More

First, a hostel in Spain is not the same as a hostel in most other places, which tend to lean strongly towards backpackers. A Spanish hostel is what would be called a Pension in France or Italy, and amounts to a 2-star hotel. They are nearly always a floor or three above street level, and usually have a lift/elevator. Now,... More

The only thing missing was the canal plus on the TV, not a big issue at all. Double double glazing kept out most external noise. Overall an absolute bargin, given it's location.

Don't be fooled by the pictures on Hostal Playa's web site--this is not a classy establishment! Even though we had a reservation and confirmation number, we were told (rather brusquely) when we arrived that there were no more rooms available. The owner(?) then informed us that she had a room we could have downstairs on the third floor. Not really... More
