We stayed 4 days at Hostal Alaska in early June. The staff was very friendly and the room was small and clean. The location is perfect for exploring Madrid. Our room was facing the back, so most likely avoided all the nightlife sounds coming from Espoz y Mina (Irish pub next door). 29 EUR per night for a double room... More

Stayed for three nights in May and can honestly say that there was nothing wrong with the place. It was in the middle of town close to Metro, bus stops, bars and shops. The Hostal Alaska was nothing special but for the price it was clean and tidy. There was 3 of us in a room with en-suite facilities. Water... More

We got the apartment on Calle Barcelona. It was clean and modern. Yes, it's on a busy street, 2nd floor, right over some restaurants, so it's quite noisy at night when everyone comes out, if you keep your windows open. If you close them, the noise insulation is pretty good, and with ear plugs you'll sleep like a baby. Location... More

We often talk about what was our favorite or least favorite experience, food, etc. When we mention HA, it is in the category of least favorite lodging. HA is located about one... More

We stayed in a room with a double bed and an en suite bathroom. There were also 2 single beds in the room we were in so it could accommodate up to 4 people. The room was basic and the bed was stiff. There is another hostal which shares the floor as Hostal Alaska, but it seems that they are... More

This is a bit late, was actually there for 3 nights with my auntie and uncle (both in their 60's) in Sept '09. Must say that it was a fabulous stay ... location was fantastic, very near the Metro and right smack in Puerta del Sol! What more could we ask for? Security was good, as there was so many... More

My wife and I (both in our mid 60s) stayed at Hostal Alaska for 8 nights in mid February. We did so because we planned to make four day trips out from Madrid during our stay, and the location + price of this hostal cannot be beat. We stayed in Room 7, recommended by another Trip Advisor poster, and we... More

We booked a superior double room through Hostal Alaska. We actually stayed in a room that seemed to be operated by Hostal Oliver just across the hallway. The room we had wasn't half as nice as the ones shown on the website and in fact we were a bit disappointed on first sight. But, it was spacious, very clean and... More

Myself and my girlfriend stayed here for 2 nights, a very good location for visiting and exploring Madrid. The room was comfortable and the staff were very helpful, one lady there in particular was very accommodating and pleasant and really helped us a lot during our stay and I am eternally grateful. If we end up in Madrid again we'd... More
