Nothing Special. Good Location. We found by walking around and picking a place. It was an ok price. About the same as others we checked out. The beds and bath were very basic. It was close to subway and walking distance from good sites.

Situated in the Gran Via, very central, despite being on such a busy road, we couldn't hear any of the noise from our room. We would advise if going by train to get off at Callao Station rather than the Gran Via as from Callao to the Hostal, it is literally just a few metres distance. The actual Hostal is... More

My family and I stayed here for two nights, two adults, two tweens, and a baby, and the staff was friendly and accomodating- but just be aware that they do not speak English but they try to understand as best as they can. We had a small balcony overlooking the city and the location is walking distance to wonderful areas... More

We stayed in this hostel in August 2011, I am unhappy to write that there were only 3 nice things about this hostel; firstly Hostal Helena is situated near the metro hence commuting was very easy and convenient. Our room was air-conditioned which was a must as we were in Madrid in its warmest weather. Lastly, the cozy veranda of... More

Stayed at the Hostal Helena for about 4 nights. I think the owner booked us in the best room. It was quite large w/ a comfortable double bed and a small bathroom. The hostal didn't appear full so it was quite quiet, and on the top floor, u can't hear much of the busy street below. Some small things: it... More
