Only location of this place was really good. Other than this it was just shocking. I will not claim to small room size and that room looked not like at photos. The main issue is that everything was very dirty and not accurate... When came time to sleep we discovered in our bed many hair and small kind of trash.... More

Sometimes when you look for a good hostal they tend to be lacking. Such is not the case for this hostal. Great find and value for your money. They don't have a/c but that's standard in the area. Exactly as described and as the pictures showed.

I've stayed here for 3 nights and it's very close to the main tourists areas. I stayed in room 114 at the end of the hallway and it was very peaceful. You need to share the bathroom with this room, but I haven't had to wait once to use it. For the price and location I would strongly recommend. I... More

Great location (near from Grand Via metro, the plazas, etc). The owner was very polite, nice and very helpful. Free luggage cabinet if you want to keep your luggage on the last day. Average breakfast. The night was cold and you can't control the heater because it's central.

We stayed in a double room for 2 nights, and we were very happy with the location - a block away from Grand Via metro and the heart of the city! Our room was at the very end of the hall, and it was tiny!! The bed-to-wall clearance would have been about a meter, if that. The double bed was... More

To get things started, let me explain who I am. I am a 21 year old solo female traveler. I have been to 14 countries and counting. I have stayed in friends homes, apartments, hotels (3 stars and up), hostels, and B&B's. This hostel left me with an odd feeling mainly because of the service provided. The location is great...

Nice and quiet as long as you get a window towards the inner yard. Very close to Metro Gran Via. Clean and decorated. Nice staff! Breakfast is similar to what you get on airplanes :) but the rest of the experience adds up!

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
