would never stay here again, beds are dirty and unstable, rooms are tiny- nothing like the gallery would lead to you believe. Very noisy early in the mornings, bathroom looks like it's been there 100 years. lifts are unpredictable, doesn't have any hostel feel to it at all. service is terrible, came home one night and found 5 people sleeping...

Well I never got in. While reserving the room it says approximate time of arrival. Approximate means when a person thinks they will be there not your room will be given away. Had I known this I would have given a safer time. When we arrived there was 3 girls waiting and no one to help them. We waited with... More

This is definitely not a high-class hotel, but still I was very impressed. We decided last minute to spend a week in Madrid, and I booked the hostel online just a few hours before check in. We called the hostel to let them know we were there, and from there everything went very smoothly. As they state on the web... More

I arrived in Paseo del Prado to be told that next day I will have to move my bags to another location. The room I was given in Paseo del Prado had no heating and it was winter. The room I moved to next day had no heating either but was warmer because it was very small, I gather. There... More

Due to delays with our flight we were late arriving at the hostel. The hostel is located within a residential building, and finding it was difficult. The fact that the staff can't speak english (which the websites said they could) and the fact I only speak pigeon spanish made getting into the building awkward. once we got into the hostal... More

As we were arriving late, my boyfriend called the hostel and informed them that our approximate time of arrival will be 01.00 am. As we arrived to the door, we rang the bell, but there was no answer. We called the hostal, and the person literally yelled in the phone that we are not supposed to ring the door bell... More

It is amusing in hindsight that places like this manage to survive. It was an extremely weird setup and I'm not normally a fussy traveller at all. I wanted to go against the grain and give this place a positive review but simply can't bring myself to do it. There are lots of other hostels around, I strongly recommend checking... More
