Barbieri Sol is a hostel with old furniture and the worst beds I slept on in years. The rooms look like they haven't been renovated in the last decades. The Security of the place is the biggest problem. The guy who had the night shift did not speak English. The area around the Place Sol is filled with drunk people.... More

Lovely hostel. Very central. Bathrooms were clean, a bit small though. Has a beautiful terrace by the kitchen. However, it gets a quite noisy as Madrid is a party city, but otherwise it was great. Breakfast was included, it was very simple...

This is a very run down hostel. It is located on the second floor of a building just off Sol's main square. In the kitchen there are a lot of electrical cables showing or coming out of the wall into appliances. The oven didn't work, and the wifi was down when I arrived but was back up an running that...

As the name suggest Barbieri Sol Hostel is located just off Sol Plaza, in an area known for its nightlife. The hostel offers competative prices and a really good breakfast which is included in the price, however it seems to have a certain dull and lifeless feeling about it. If you are prepared to overlook this the hostel is conveniently... More

Each year I travel to a new location with a group of Morris Dancers, it would be true to say that we are all on the mature side but choose Hostels because they generally offer somewhere cheap and convenient to stay with basic facilities. This Hostel chosen over the internet was in a good location near to bars and restaurants... More

The location of this hostile is great, and the desk attendant was super helpful when it came to pointing us to great things to do while we were there. We got a free room upgrade while we were there because the place wasn't very crowded due to it being off season. The terrace was a great place to chill out... More

The hostel is located on a street which is lined with bars and clubs so if you are hoping to get a good nights sleep do not stay at this hostel. Awkward having the shower in the room, would be better in a shared location in the hallway. Room very simple few power points. Good value for money due to... More
