“Good for hostal near train”
Reviewed June 14, 2012

My husband and I stayed here two nights in two different rooms in between trips into and out of Madrid. The first night we had a ground floor room and couldn't sleep. The bar was right outside our window and they didn't give us the remote control for the AC. A few nights later we stayed in a second floor room and it was great. The AC was working and it wasn't loud at all. It's a very bare bones place but relatively clean and convenient to the train station if you just need somewhere to stay for a few hours. I wouldn't recommend it if you are planning to stay longer than that.

Stayed June 2012, traveled as a couple

The hostal is very well located, next to the Prado and Reina Sofia Museums, and very close to Atocha Train or Metro stations. There is no breakfast, but there are some places nearby were you can go.

Regarding the rooms, they are very small, with a little bathroom, but clean. There are always a lady taking care of it. The worst thing of it, is that the isolation between the rooms are poor, and it's a question of lucky with your neighbors... but regarding the price, perhaps its a good choice for a couple of days...

The wi-fi is free, but for me just worked on the first time I tried it. Anyway, that's a lot to do on Madrid, so don't waste your time on the Internet!
