A winner in terms of location and value. This really is the ideal spot for visiting Madrid, most tourist attractions are within strolling distance.
The room we had was small and basic but had everything you needed: effective air conditioning, free wi-fi, hairdryer, safe, FSTV etc. The shower room was small but very clean and the shower was first rate. Breakfast was also excellent value.
The staff were very friendly and helpful and spoke excellent English.
The adjoining restaurant, Ginger, is a good bet to eat, moderate prices for good food.
The only slight niggle I had was that, in spite of booking 4 months in advance and requesting a double room, we got a twin room with a couple of quite hard beds.
I would still, however, return and recommend the Hostal to anyone looking for a good value centrally located basic hotel with good facilities and friendly, helpful staff.
