“Awesome location, excellent price!”
Reviewed June 8, 2012

Location is probably THE BEST one could find in Madrid for such an affordable price. Walking distance from everywhere: tourist attractions, nightlife, metro, supermarket... Makes visiting the city a lot easier. 24-hour service provided by very nice staff and wi-fi access makes it even better.
Check-in is at noon but if the room is ready, you can have an early check-in, free of further charge, like us. Gladly surprised that there where three bathrooms in a single aisle for people that chose to share a bathroom. We were expecting having to wake up early or waiting in line to take a bath, but not what happened at all. Never had to wait a minute :).

Now, to be honest, rooms without a balcony are very, very small and there's no elevator, so you'll climb a few stairs carrying your bags. Showers are really really small as well, and it's hard to take a bath without splashing the whole bathroom.That's just advice for picky people.

Whatever somebody may dislike about this place is well compensated for the awesome location. We were very happy with our experience there and, as a matter of fact, since our flight to L.A. leaves from Madrid and we'll have to spend one more night there after a month traveling, we canceled a reservation in another hotel, so we can stay there again that last night!

Room Tip: If possible, ask for a room with a balcony. I think they are bigger plus, you'll have a view of...

It's a small hostal located in nice area full of good bars and restaurants. There is Mercado de San Miguel and a supermarket on the same street. All major attractions are within walking distance.
Whole place was very clean and quiet. My room was small, equipped with cheap, but new furniture. Bed was really comfortable. There was a TV in the room, but without any English channels. The only problem was WIFi not working well there. I can't complain about shared bathrooms, they were clean all the time.
Staff was friendly and spoke some English.
I highly recommend this place. It was better than I expected for price not much higher than bed in hostel dormitory.

It was one of the cheapest options in the city center when I was looking for an accommodation for a 2 nights stay in Madrid. Hostal location is rather good, close to Puerta del Sol, The Royal Palace and Plaza Mayor. An old Mercado with a lot of shops and small eateries is in front of the hostal. Hostal provides basic accommodation, we had a small twin room. Bathrooms were outside in a corridor. They didn`t serve breakfast. Towels were for hire and cost 1 euro. Much noise were heard from the street, especially at night. One should have in mind that they don`t have 24 hours reception. When we were leaving early in the morning we just dropped our room keys into a post box.
As a whole we were satisfied as it was cheap, small place to stay with a good location to explore Madrid.

This place is cheap and basically runs like a youth hostel, except that you have a private room to yourself.

It is VERY clean. It is quiet, and yet the location is EXCELLENT.

Beware: the staff don't speak English. The problem is the shared shower/bathrooms. Depending on who the other guests are, your shower experience might be compromised by the bad hygiene of the person before you.

I would stay there again, just because of the great value for the neighborhood.
If you have a sense of humor, you'll love it.

The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean and bathrooms were also clean. Disappointing that there weren't any lockers in the rooms for you to lock away valuables but the location of this hostel more than made up for that. Directly opposite the Mercado San Miguel and with lots of great places surrounding to go for good food and good wine. There is however the problem with the other noisy travellers that stay here and also the noise from the outside recycling bins being emptied. However, personally, I did not find it a bother. My two other companions did.

I've been there fore 3 nights. The location is perfect, right in the center, in front of Mercado de San Miguel. We arrived and the guy from the reception didn't understand english.. So i spoke a mix of italian, but I understood him. I paid the first night by credit card in advance, but he didn't get it that we payed and couldn't count 200-40... Than after we finally got it and went to the rooms. I forgot my towel at home and went back to the reception and i've seen, that the guy NOW was speaking English with other tourists, but with me he spoke only spanish! The rooms were ok, but the bed not! They were from IKEA and it was not the best.
Bathrooms were ok, cleaned every day....
