This hostel is located very close to the main road Gran Via. It only takes about three minutes maximum to get there. This means that it's also very close to the subway station. Although, if you have a backpack or a lot of luggage, you might want to know that this hostel is located on the forth floor of a... More

Highly recommended. I stayed 4 nights in cute single ensuite room. The window doesn't face the main street, so I didn't notice so much noise. Good location with many bars and restaurants, near metro station, so you can get to main attractions really fast. Regarding the staff, people there are very friendly and helpful. Breakfast includes not only sweet bread... More

The location is really really good, right in the middle of nightlife district Chueca. It is also only a few blocks from the shopping street "Gran Via." From both "Gran Via" and "Chueca" metro stations, you can get access to many parts of Madrid easily. It is also only two blocks from Mercado San Anton, where there is a gourmet... More

I stayed 3 consecutive nights at Hostal Dolce Vita as a solo traveler. You'll find below the impressions on my stay.

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.
