This is the second time I've stayed at the Hostale Oriente... I was originally there for 5 days in November 2011 and liked it enough to return recently. I found the hotel to be an excellent value for the price. On both occasions, I had a double room overlooking the plaza (which I requested). The room was pleasant and scrupulously clean, the beds and pillows quite comfortable. Unlike some of the other reviewers, I found the water to be hot and the water pressure quite plentiful. The tub/shower was very small and the towels are not 4-star, but they were adequate. At 55€ a night, I wasn't expected The Ritz. The location is perfect - very near to everything, but not in the middle of the busiest areas, such as Peurta del Sol or Gran Via.
The place is a bit noisy, as walls are thin and there is also noise from the street from late-night partyers. But I think that is pretty normal for Madrid and I didn't find it too much of a bother.
There is a very reasonably priced place for breakfast just across the street called Viena Caprellanes. They offer a fantastic cafe con leche and crispy pan tostado with marmalade and butter for 2.14€ (in addition to some awesome looking pastries for about the same price). It was filled with locals every morning and the waitress remembered the fact that I preferred 'leche caliente'on the second day. I found it very charming and authentic place and a great way to start the day.
If you are looking for a comfortable, well-situated and reasonably priced stay in Madrid I definitely recommend Hostale Oriente.
