Las Musas Residence is conveniently located just a minute or two walk from the Tirso de Molina stop on the light blue Metro line; only 3 stops from the Atocha RENFE station. It is within walking distance of Plaza Mayor, Plaza del Sol and even the Prado.
The hostel itself is average with a cordial and helpful staff. WIFI is not available in the rooms, only in the lobby/dining room and the "living room" in the basement. There is also a computer room in the basement. I stayed in an 8 bed (4 rickety bunk beds) female only dorm which conveniently had a bathroom with shower in the room. I stayed for 4 nights and noticed that the cleaning services were less than thorough most days; I was in the room on two occasions that the cleaners came and they were in and out without sweeping or washing floors or washing the bathroom. This is a large hostel, with many rooms (3 floors worth) and many guests and it has the feeling of a large hostel/ almost a cheap hotel, its not cozy or homey.
The kitchen is the best feature (besides the location): there are three sinks, multiple refrigerators & ovens and lots of stove top burners. I was impressed by the many pots, pans, knives, cutting boards...its a well supplied kitchen.
Choose this hostel for the location and kitchen, not the quality. It's just steps from Plaza de Tirso de Molina which offers a Lidl supermarket, a great bakery, flower stands and the metro. The surrounding streets are rife fruit stands and other small markets. It's a central location that is convenient for sightseeing.
