We were a party of four Australians (2 couples) looking for a budget minded stay in a convenient location. We wanted comfort, quiet, clean working bathrooms (we are Australians, right?) with 24 hour reception. We arrived by whirlwind taxi from the airport, easy to find...More
We booked Hostal Lauria thinking it was a hotel as we did it in a rush and saw some really good photos online. It also got good reviews. We stayed for one night and were a bit surprised by some of the issues that arose....More
Stayed here for 5 nights and the hostel became like home for me. The room was comfortable and clean. The location was just perfect. Walking distance to almost everything. Most importantly it was safe, since I was travelling alone, that was my main concern.

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.
