I have been to this hostel during my short trip to Madrid. The room was clean, and everyday housekeepers made our bed, cleaned the trash can and room in general. The hostel is located right in front of the metro station , in the very center of downtown Madrid. All shops and main tourist attractions is in walking distance. Staff...

Spent an hour and a half checking in, got yelled at multiple times by the old lady that works there, they couldn't find my reservation so they made me pay twice and wouldn't take credit card even though there is a sign out front that says they accept credit cards.

When we arrived the owner had no idea who we were or that we had made a reservation.The whole place is creepy and made us feel so uncomfortable. There...

The hostel in itself isn't much, it's a building's floor made into a hostel - there are 3 others just like it in the nearby buildings. It is excellently positioned in plaza del Sol, which is the starting point for the busiest shopping street in Madrid and pretty much where everything happens. We walked like crazy from the metro stop...

This is most noisy hotel I have ever stayed in! The staff are ok but the owner is crazy and deaf. I stayed only 1 night which was more than sufficient! Arrived about 11 am after overnight journey and needed sleep and rest. Within a few minutes of arriving there was a fight in reception between the owner and someone,...

Staying in Centro

Neighborhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
