This place was a right little gem, especially for €52 a night (we were there for 5 nights)! The location is absolutely amazing and the rooms were spotless. Yes they are small, but we only used them to sleep, get ready in & of course a little afternoon siesta! I would recommend paying a little extra & getting your own bathroom, which is what we did. There was air con, which was heavenly, as we went in September when the temperature was in the 30s (degrees C) and the room was cleaned every day.
Upon our arrival, the girl on reception was extremely friendly, she gave us a map, offered recommendations of where to go and grab drinks & food and marked the main tourist attractions, not to mention the nearest Metro station (which is literally seconds away from the front door).
I'd recommend having an explore of the area around the hotel/hostel - the roads opposite lead to lovely little squares and quirky bars & shops which wouldn't look out of place in the trendiest parts of London. The city has a great vibe, everywhere we went there was some sort of live music and people selling handmade flowers and crafts.
Included in our stay was a free walking tour, which met at the Puerta Del Sol below the statue of Carlos III, which I HIGHLY recommend you do, it was a great was to see this incredible city by day, as well as learning a little bit about it's rich culture & heritage. Our tour guide was a lovely Aussie girl who lived in Madrid & could speak English, Spanish & Italian fluently!
If you are on a budget, but want somewhere with an amazing location, spotless rooms and great links to the public transport, this place is definitely for you, you won't be disappointed. I would 110% definitely stay here again. And hopefully I will be soon!
