We stayed here one night. The rooms are clean. It is very close to Sol. The price is reasonable. The owner/worker is very kind and helpful. The street is very active at nights so it can be noisy at nights. It is one of the best options in this area.

The location is ideal. The bedroom and shared bathrooms are big, well illuminated and clean. The bed was nice and we could rest properly. The hostel is located on an old building just by Puerta del Sol, so beware that everything is not brand-new but it is the best option if you only plan on going to the hostel to... More

When you get into the building you will not have a clue where to go because it isn't marked so I'll tell you now, it's Level 3. There's a reception there (of sorts), you can try ringing the buzzer/door bell at either the building entrance or Level 3 but that might not get you anywhere. You just have to be... More

As for budget accommodation, I'd say this hostel was quite a good option. Our double room was large and it had comfy beds with a balcony overlooking the top of the buildings around the hostal. Shared bathroom was no trouble at all, really clean and never too busy. Staff are really welcoming and you'll certainly feel like home. There was... More

The hostel is located around the corner from Plaza Santa Ana, so it is in the heart of a bustling night-life scene. The room we stayed in was grand and clean, with a lovely little balcony looking out over the street below. The bathroom was clean and well-maintained and we didn't have to wait to use it at any time.... More

Right in the city center. Bring earplugs because it can be very noisy from the cafes on the Plaza. Our room was decently sized with a sink. Common bathroom was very clean. The staff is very nice. The hostal itself is a very large flat divided into rooms for rent. Furnishings are quite old but still OK. Just remember it... More

Stayed at Hostal Alonso for six days in a single room with a shared bathroom. Best thing about the place was its central location - about five minutes walk from Sol Metro and most of the sights you'd be interested in seeing were walkable from there. Plenty of bars, restaurants, shops and cafes close by. Room was perfectly adequate, with... More

Key points: - Great location; right in the centre of Madrid, many bars in the same street and in streets around the corner, quiet at night (not noisy), 3min walk to Sol/plaza Mayor,... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighborhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighborhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
