As far as I have noticed, the Hostel has a different name now? Anyway, that's very nice and clean place with friendly and helpful staff. There's simple breakfast included in the price of the stay. Seems that rooms and bathrooms are recently renovated, so they're very clean and fresh. Hostel is located pretty close to city center (Gran via) and...

I recently stayed here for a few nights when on a university field trip to Madrid. There were seven of us in one room which wasn't a problem. The staff were really friendly and helpful. They have different activities every day, like a tour around the city and bar crawls! Really affordable and in a great location. Breakfast in the...

the pros: Nice and friendly staff, the common areas are quite nice and the location is superb . the cons: the rooms are quite dark and gloomy, very small lockers, uncomfortable beds, and the hot water didn't quite work in the bathroom. Breakfast was nothing big, I usually skipped it. I guess it's ok for a couple of days

I spent in this hostel 5 nights. I had a reservation in a10 bed dorm. But the bathroom wasn't been ready yet to use (repair work). So the guy from the reception made me a favour and transfered me to a 6 bed dorm and didn't take any extra fee for this. I came to the hostel around 9 a.m....

It is close to metro station. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Rooms is pretty small, it was 8 bed mixed dorm, and one window, so there was some smell from another guy in the room. It was January so it was cold to leave window open all night. Breakfast ok, nothing special. It is ok for few day max.

The bedroom is uncomfortable in the same proportion that the common area is good. The location is really good, but the beds are noisy. We are two and we just recived one blanket, but there was a breakfast, a good surprise. For those who are interested there was a big schedule with free tours, drink parties, and all these stuff.

This is a great place right in the most amazing part of Madrid. The place was clean, only 5 min walk from the metro stations. Walking distance to many of the city's attractions, yet it is a very quiet place to come back and relax. The staff was super friendly and welcoming. The check in and check out process was...

Staying in Chamberi

Neighborhood Profile
Chamberi
Multi-story residential buildings decorated with ornate balconies line the traditional, quiet, and pretty streets of Chamberí. Humble storefronts and neighborhood taverns are scattered across the lower levels down every block, and here and there, there's a cluster of tables on the sidewalk. It isn't ever crowded, but people are always out, poking into the tiny bakeries, hardware stores, and tobacco shops, or ducking into a bright, unadorned cerveceria to have a coffee or beer by the bar, flip through the paper, and check the sports score. The round Plaza Olavide, where the fairly regular network of streets breaks form, is among the most green and lively spots. Restaurants line its circumference and sought-after outdoor tables fill the center of the plaza, where people relax to the sounds of kids playing and street musicians' tunes.
