Very affordable hostal close to many tapas bars and the shopping of Gran Via and Sol. No breakfast is served, there are facilities to make your own though, although with all the cheap breakfast offers in the bars nearby this is not really an issue.

We've been there for almost a week and were Just pleased to feel the warmth reception of the staff. The room were tiny but cosy. Though the hotel were quite full we didn't hear any annoying sound or disturbance. The location was particulary good for us as it was very close to the callao and the gran via buzz but... More

The staff was super friendly, the hotel is located right in the centre of the city. Our room was nice, tidy and clean, and the bathroom was modern, spacious and clean. The only minus point is the noise: the walls are quite thin and you can hear your neighbours.

stayed 4 nights at the Pizarro in February, we arrived at lunchtime but we're told by a lady who spoke very little English that we couldn't have our room yet. Although disappointed I felt a little sorry for her, being left to hold the fort, so we came to an agreement that we could leave our bags while we went... More

Went on our honeymoon to Spain and took a trip to Madrid. We stayed in another hotel too to get a perspective of the whole area and Hostal Pizarro was a much better location and price. Great value and clean room with a closet for hanging up my nice dresses and a safe for our passports and my jewelry. Would... More

We stayed here for two nights exploring Madrid, and I can't think of a single complaint. The staff were so helpful, allowing us to check in early as soon as we arrived (which was greatly appreciated by our jet lagged selves!). The rooms are simple but comfortable and clean. The bathrooms even have toiletries, an amenity I was not anticipating.... More

After I wrote the title, I was worried that some people would interpret a five-star price as expensive. Actually, it was really very affordable. The pictures on the website don't do justice at all. In reality, it's much nicer. It's clean. The staff are all accommodating. They have WiFi throughout the hostel and two new iMacs in the lobby. We... More

We spent six nights at Hostal Pizarro and were very happy with the accommodation and the welcoming staff. José, our host, was very inviting and had great suggestions for places to eat and shop. The hostal is located in a fairly quiet area near the center of the city, easy walking distance to most attractions, Metro stops and areas like... More

We spent 2 nights at Hostal Pizarro in December 2013 and it was a very wonderful experience. It felt very welcoming and homey. Upon arrival, we were welcomed by a very kind lady who showed us around. There are computers in the lobby which you can use if you need to check into anything. You will also find a good... More

I found Hostal Pizarro by accident, when in a hurry to find a place to stay in the neighbourhood. I was immediately surprised by the friendliness and professional standards of the owners, very uncommon in this kind of establishment. It's clean, it's cosy, and it's comfortable, at least for a few nights' stay.

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
