Have booked this hostel four times in the past year on visits to Madrid from San Francisco. One could not find a better bargain in the heart of Madrid. Spotless, quiet, fresh breakfast every morning, accommodating staff available round the clock. Would not hesitate to return or recommend! Just off Puerto del Sol and close to everything in central Madridin...

This hostal is very noisy. I could hear people watching TV. I could hear people having small talk. I could hear women having sex. I could hear people flushing toilet and taking shower. It seems like the wall is very thin and lets in all kinds of noise from the hallway. Staffs were nice and courteous.

Great location, but what I most want to point out if how PROFESSIONAL and EXTREMELY NICE the staff were. I just arrived last night from my very long trip (12 hours) and felt the need to write this particular item: I left the hotel yesterday morning for the parking lot, paid for the parking, and left for the airport. 20...

The most important thing: Excellent location in the heart of Madrid city center, a short walk from all the attractions and places of interest. Metro station 100 meters away. Eroski supermarket about 150 meters away. Good suitable light breakfast: coffee, juice, bread, cheese, yogurt, fruit and a chocolate bar. (Not always need to have eggs and bacon, etc.) Very friendly...

We traveled in Madrid with my wife in the end of September and stayed to this 1-floor hostel for 3 nights in total. The staff is friendly and tried to help even if they don't speak English well. The room was clean when we arrived but was small. The bathroom was an added aluminum-glass cabin in the room, but was...

The room was cheap, small, clean and just right for us. Excellent location just steps away from the main road, transport and major attractions. Free breakfast was fine. Internet worked good. Room had a ceiling fan. Wasn't the smalled triple I ever stayed in -but close. Very helpful staff. Has an elevator too.

As a short stay over hostel in central Madrid, La Fontana ticks lots of boxes. Located in Calle Valverde it is conveniently place for all of the major tourist attractions and ideal for use as an overnight base whilst train or plane hopping, with Gran Via metro station a few hundred metres stroll away. Hostel is clean, secure, comfortable and...

The hostel was good value for a central madrid venue. Clean, warm, quiet and breakfast included. My room was small being a single and room would have been an issue if I had spent any time in there. But as purely a bed for the night and somewhere to wash and brush teeth it served a purpose. Some independant visitors...

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.
