“comfy and pleasant stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 18, 2011

I had a lovely stay at this hostal. The staff was very friendly and great. This is a family run place, the older couple do not understand English and I do not speak Spanish. It was difficult but it was manageable. Their daughter was there most of the time and she understand english. They keep their place very clean and neat. My room may be a little too small, but with 17-18 euros a night I am not complaining too much. My twin bed was nice and comfy, though it may be a challenge for someone that is taller.
It may be a little challenge to find the place because there is no sign other than a yellow piece of paper the sides of the door. the area is pretty decent, the block is filled with shops and restaurants that are open late but some are closed during the siesta.
I can't rave enough about the location of this place because I managed to get to a lot of the sights by foot starting here!

We stayed in Madrid for 3 nights. The hostal was a little bit hard to find since there is no big sign. The staff, Maria was very friendly and helpful. She provided us maps and information for attractions in Madrid without us asking. The room was clean and roomy. The bathroom was very clean as well, but the one we stayed in didn't have a vent, which wasn't a big deal. The location of the hostal was very convenient. We considered it was center of everything else (such as attractions and shopping). The overall experience was great!

This hostal is a lovely family-run place with decent bathrooms and a great location. The rooms are very bright and have lovely balconies over a (somewhat noisy) pedestrian street. We stayed for 5 nights and had a great time!

This place lived up to everything I was expecting... good, clean, comfortable, friendly accommodation in an excellent area of Madrid. We had a delightful room with a little balcony overlooking Fuencarral Street and a small ensuite bathroom.

Having just read the previous reviews by CKcapetown and Alba22, there's little more I can add, except to say that I completely agree with everything said. Plus, the wi-fi internet was complimentary and high speed.

I would definitely stay here again. It's a gem of a place.

A friend and I stayed at Hostal Las Murallas for 3 nights, and I would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Madrid on a budget. I am very grateful for having found this hidden gem through Tripadvisor, and I would gladly return whenever I visit Madrid again. The hostel is family-run by a very friendly elderly couple, and its location is perfect for shopping or sightseeing, as the biggest sights are only a few minutes away by metro or on foot. There are some great restaurants close by, as well as the Teatro Munoz Seca, where spectacular flamenco shows can be enjoyed. After a horrible night's stay in the Mad Hostel in Madrid, my fellow traveller and I were incredibly grateful to have a large, clean, comfortable room and bathroom for ourselves for only 18 Euro per person per night. There is no breakfast offered, but for this price, it is still incredible value for money. Our room was cleaned everyday and was equipped with a colour television as well as a pretty little balcony from which we had a lovely view of Fuencarral street. This is an intimate family-run hostel par excellence, I am delighted to have stayed at Hostal Las Murallas.

I went to Madrid for 3 days. It was my first in this city and i'm so glad i chose Las Murallas hostal. With the price i paid i did not expect to end up in such a good hostal.
-location: First of all the location is great. 2 min away from Gran Via which is the main street in Madrid and 5 min away from the center. The street Fuencarral is a safe street with many great shops and restaurants.
-security: I was a solo traveler and i was very glad cause the hostal is very safe. It is family owned so it was very secured during the day and during the night. Open 24 hours per day so no problems for checking in, you can arrive any time you like
Cleanliness: I have never seen a hostal or a hostel this clean before. Especially the toilet and the shower are very clean.
-rooms: my room was great. Big enough for one person, with heating and tv.
-service: the owners of the hostal are very nice people. The owners are a spanish couple and their daughter. Very lovely people. The daughter speaks very good English so that means you won't have any problems if you don't speak spanish.

If i go back to Madrid, i will definitely stay in this hostal because for the price i paid i got a lot more than i expected.
