A shocking bad experience. Arrived to check in to be 'greeted' by a shockingly hostile, rude, surely, unwelcoming young man. Demand for my passport was accompanied by an inpatient click of his fingers. Whole check-in experience was so terrible I decided not to stay there - and they still charged me for three nights. Complained and they never even replied.... More

The welcome was warm, we managed to muddle through with a a lack of Spanish language, efficient check in. Very clean room, presented with Ikea furniture and towels. VERY cosy shower cube, which I could expect some would not be happy about...if it wasn't for the shower tub to hold the shower gel...once it was put down it would have... More

The Hostal is conveniently located. All rooms have attached toilet and shower and is as good as a Hotel. Next street to Gran Via and central Madrid is best for short stay. However, the absence of lift and carrying of luggage to the first floor is minus point.

There are no 24h reception. Located right in the center of Madrid, you can reach everything on foot. Plenty of choices to eat out on the street. Good wifi. Polite and helpful staff, but unfortunately they speak very basic English. Good value for money.

I booked this last minute - like literally last minute for 50 EUR/day. I also forgot to tell them I would be coming late (the reception is open till 10 PM, so if you are checking in late, do let them know). But the owner was quite cordial, even though I bugged him at 2 AM in the night. Got... More

Reception was good. The guy showed me around and gave tips concerning the area. The room is small but enough space to move around. It is clean and the bathroom is equiped well. The loaction is perfect. I would stay here again!

Staying in Malasana

Neighborhood Profile
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.
