This hostel is in the perfect location to explore Madrid!!!! BUT....... Holey Moley, it is noisy!!!! Even with all the shutters, windows, and curtains closed, it still sounded like Madrid nightlife was happening right on the balcony! AND, it wasn't very clean! One of the beds in our room was actually broken, the bedspread was ripped, and it was dusty!... More

I asked them to just turn it off if they can't put it on a cold , they could'nt. Machine was broken and they needed technical support for that. We couldn't sleep at... More

The worst experience I have ever had in my 25 years of traveling. Their website is misleading and so is information listed on other booking sites. 1. Bedding is listed as "Memory foam". We had a Quadruple family room and all 3 beds in the room had spring mattresses that were old and sunk in so that the springs poked... More

The bathroom was not very good. The toilet lid was loose, it was old, a bit dirty, the door was especially dirty. Rooms are pretty old. There is just one big light in the ceiling and no lights by the beds. We booked a whole room where there was room for 8 persons. Finally we were only 6 and I... More

The Hostal is situated in front of the Subway/Metro station Callao. Right in the center of Madrid. Shops, bars, restaurants are nearby and there is plenty of choice. The hotel is clean and the staff is kind. There is no luxury, but nobody can ask for that. Tv and clean bathroom with swower. Situated near transports, monuments and interesting places... More

I liked hostal very much. perfect location, very comfortable and clean rooms. Callao metro station is just in front of hostal. very welcoming stuff. Young owner did everything to service you well. our room had magnificent view to Gran Via. The price is attractively low. I advise everyone to visit this hostal.

For a hostal excellent place, very good location as long as you use public transport as a major city centre there is no parking, although I parked in suburbs and used excellent metro system, close to shops, bars, places of interest & room was clean, private bathroom, just be wary of the ladies of the night who ply their trade...

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighborhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
