This is probably the quality range expected by a frequent hostel visitor. It is just basic. We have had a private room with 6 beds despite asked for 4. In consequence the floor was really scarce but we could place some clothes on the spare beds. The property is really tired but it is clean. And I must say my... More

Location is fine. It looks like a stylish hostel while I first stepped in the hostel. However, the 4-bed room is extremely small and old. Few things in the room are broken, including lights, lockers, and plugs. Though the price is relatively low, I won't stay in this hostel. The breakfast is okay, but no hot water for 'hot chocolate'!!!!... More

The Hostel is located at a walk-able distance from all the main places in the city. The breakfast and Wi-Fi were both very good and it has a washing/drying machine for the clients. The rooms and toilet were always clean and tidy. But the room was very small, they placed 3 bunk beds in there and that was too much.... More

Yes, the price is low, but should the quality be the same? This hostel needs to tidy up. Little renovation and a cleaning lady would really help the place. Another disappointing aspect was Wi-Fi, which was not working in the rooms most of the time or had a poor connection. Moreover, staff could have been nicer. True that rooms are... More

Location of the best! Close to everything. I think the rooms are small and a little dirty. During the stay our room had no AC running up correctly, only after two days was fixed. As for the breakfast it is too early. After the set time, it is not possible to have breakfast. As for the staff is friendly.

Situated right in the heart of Madrid, this hostel has no identity problems, it is what it is, a hostel. It's cheap, decent bedrooms, very nice staff, a great breakfast for a hostel and, did I mention already that it's cheap. It's great for a trip with friends where you just a need a place to crash. Regarding hygiene, no... More

Stayed here for a Stag Do in May for 2 nights. We were in a 6 bed room, 3 bunk beds. Yes it's a bit tight, but there's an en-suite (and a bidet!) and as we really only used the room to sleep, the size doesn't matter. Ideal location for everything in Madrid, just set away from the main locations.... More

The place is OK. Good bed, good shower, but the elevators were broken half of the time. It has to be taken into consideration when you stay on the 7th floor. Wifi quite poor The staff was very nice and very helpfull giving advice and directions. Has a cool bar downstairs and is pretty close to Puerta del Sol.

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.
