Stayed in Hostal Helena in May 2016 for 2 nights. Great price, nice and cheap. This is the first time I have stayed in a hostel as I usually stay in a hotel, however my room was very nice. Everything was clean and in working order, nothing was broken and there was no damage or anything wrong in my room!... More

Stay here for 3 days in 2014, summer. Good, clean rooms with bathroom inside. Our room even have a picture on the wall. Good view to street and city from balcony! They have car parking in nearest buildings, cheapest then city parking. Center of the city, nearest to museums, shops and food!

I stayed with my family in Hostal Helena in January for 3 nights during our city trip. I can't complain. We got what we paid for. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Not all of them speak English but it wasn't a problem for us. Room was clean, everything was working (in-suite bathroom, TV, electrical sockets). Nothing was broken.... More

We liked the Hotel for our last days in Madrid. Most of all, the location in Gran Via, you cannot find a better location. Near All shops, Zara,Corte Ingles, near metro Callao, few minutes from Puerta del Sol, Plaza Mayor, good choice for food (papizza and pan & Co in the vicinty). We were given a room which we did...

For us, 2 moms en 2 daughters (16 -21) this Hostal was perfect! We stayed here last year aswell and because of the location we came back with the girls. Room is simple but all we needed, beds and bathroom (shower/toilet). The terras gives a magnific view on the street and a small square. Gran Via is perfect for shopping... More

Nothing Special. Good Location. We found by walking around and picking a place. It was an ok price. About the same as others we checked out. The beds and bath were very basic. It was close to subway and walking distance from good sites.

Situated in the Gran Via, very central, despite being on such a busy road, we couldn't hear any of the noise from our room. We would advise if going by train to get off at Callao Station rather than the Gran Via as from Callao to the Hostal, it is literally just a few metres distance. The actual Hostal is... More

My family and I stayed here for two nights, two adults, two tweens, and a baby, and the staff was friendly and accomodating- but just be aware that they do not speak English but they try to understand as best as they can. We had a small balcony overlooking the city and the location is walking distance to wonderful areas... More

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.
