At 36€/night for a double including bf: excellent deal. The only negative was: the bf: sweet, cheap cakes + some crackers and jam, not what a Belgian is used to for bf :-) But again, at 36: you can't go wrong with this one.

We stayed in here for 4 nights, the room and hotel was comfortable and decorated with a lot of character. Everything was clean and comfortable. Great location and a great price. The staff spoke little English but were friendly and helpful regardless. The breakfast left a lot to be desired. Overall a great stay.

The hostel has a rooftop terrace, which was beautiful! There are potted plants everywhere, and it offers a great view. Madrid generally has great weather, so my boyfriend and I were able to have breakfast up there several times (even in November). The staff is very friendly and willing to help. The hostel is less than a 5-minute walk from... More

There is a rooftop terrace, it is amazing! I think it is one of the best views in Madrid, and you can use it for free. Dolcevita falls somewhere between a hostal and a hotel. It offers the budget friendly accommodation of a hostel, but you get your own beautifully decorated room. I stayed there for more than a week,... More

I stayed 3 nights, in a single bed with shared bath and had a nice experience. The walk up the stairs would be difficult if you had a lot of luggage (I did not). The room was charming, clean, and had a cute little balcony overlooking the street. The staff was very friendly, and helpful, and it felt secure. They... More

colorful rooms, internet, confy bad. Reception 24hrs a day. It's a very friendly place. Didn't want to live, I felt like at home!!! It's not far from Plaza del Sol, in the CHUECA area. Great experience! If I'll ever go back to Mdrid, I'll book a room again! (nb: it's located on the 4th floor and there is no lift!)... More

I stayed here for only 1 night and was pleasantly surprised by how well I slept and how nice the facilities were considering it was so cheap. It's true that it's on the 2nd floor and there is no lift, so if you have a big suitcase then maybe this isn't the place for you. My single room had 3... More

My stay at Dolcevita was great! The room 407, where I stayed, is this cute, cozy challet-like bedroom with private bathroom, with a romantic decoration. The hostal is located in one of the coolest neighbourhoods in Madrid - Chueca - with walking distance to all the main touristic sites, as well as tapa bars, restaurants, etc. The Staff was very...
