The bedrooms are very small, the walls dirty and the bathroom is minuscule. Staff is nice but they charge your credit card before the check out and without noticing the guest. The unique nice thing is the location.

Just ok. To loud at night. No baby cot. Not for families. Tried to get hot water for baby's milk but it was impossible. Toilet looks bad. Was afraid to take shower. Good for some1 who really wants to save money n sleep wherever.

On arriving here I was slightly skeptical that I had chosen correctly. However, as my stay here was to be short and most of the time I would be out and about it served it's purpose very well. The room that I had was very compact, to say the least , but it was comfortable and also surprisingly quiet given... More

I think this as a good choice for those on a budget: the location is quite close to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Major and within walking distance of the major museums. The bed was comfortable and all rooms are en suite.

Considering the price I paid, the hotel is OK. I must say that the rooms are quite small, and in the summer can be very hot considering that the air conditioner is additional. Is very close to the center, too bad there are prostitutes around the zone...

For a hostel of this price we were very happy with our stay at Tijcal II in Madrid. The location was fabulous and the room was clean with everything you need. Take note that air conditioning is €6 extra per night - as you'll need to take this option in the summer! We needed to access the public car park... More

There are many, however, this is a hostel, but have their own bathroom, the room was clean, small, slightly larger than the bed, the bathroom is small, but it's warm and we slept... More

Very clean Hostal in the heart of Madrid. 2 minutes walk from Sol Metro station. Lots of Tapas Bars around the Hostal. Great security with locked doors etc. Don't be duped into making use of the 10% discount if you eat at "their" restaurant as the food quality is not very good. They pride themselves on authentic Argentinian Beef, but... More

The rooms are tiny and lack natural air flow, but it's not all that bad considering the price and its situation in the best part of Madrid, close to many attractions and transportation. I don't really like the fact that they charge you for the use of the air conditioning -Madrid, as you can see if you arrive by airplane,... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
