Stayed there 4 nights. Good value and excellent location, just a short walk from the metro of Puerta del Sol. Friendly staff and good atmosphere. We didn't have any problems even if the area is lively 24/7. I will surely come back

We stayed one Saturday night in a room viewing to the street (first floor). We were afraid of the noise since the whole area is lively day and night. There was some though not enough to prevent us from sleeping well. As it was said in other reviews, the location is unbeatable. The building is old as any other in... More

I booked Hostal Bianco in advance on booking.com. When I arrived and showed them my reservation- the people at the desk spoke absolutely no English- they did not have a room for me, and sent me upstairs to Hostal Internacional. I don't know if they are affiliated or just in the same building, but I expect to stay in the... More

We stayed here for three nights. It is a very small room, one full size bed and one twin. However, everything was clean and location was perfect (near plaza del sol). The beds are a little hard; however we didn't mind it.

Stayed here for 5 nights during citytrip. Our room was suprisingly roomy, both bathroom and room were clean and cleaned everyday. Staff was helpful. Location couldn't have been better: everything is closeby including two subway stations. However, this does come with a downside: it is really quite noisy. For me and my boyfriend this wasn't an issue: we are both... More

We stayed 4 nights. Location is OK, a few minutes walk from Puerto del Sol but there is a night-club up the street that bangs out loud music until the wee hours. Comfort was OK: beds a little soft but the bathroom was fine. However, we were out for several hours one day and no one bothered to clean the... More

We had the same problem than other of the opinions publised. We reserved this hostel one month in advance. Two weeks before,we called and the person in charge (Angel) confirmed us that everything was OK. We arrived to the hostel at 11 PM, but they couldn't find our reservation even if I showed them a copy of the confirmation e-mail... More

We visited Spain on Oct/2006. This was my 3rd stayed at this Hostal in 5 years. The location is perfect, I never had a problem leaving my personal stuff in the room, the bathroom and shower are clean (I always had the services inside the room), the elevator is tiny. 100% recomended.

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.
