Reviewed April 29, 2013

I really enjoyed staying here at the Astoria Hostal Rooms small but adequate, as often the case for singles. Everything very clean. So convenient to Sol Subway stop and most of the major museums. . Good restaurants nearby as well. Free access to computer and free wi-fi. Very nice staff.

Hostel located 2minutes away from Puerta del Sol and Gran Via.
Came to see a musical and got cheap accommodation as close as possible to the theatre. We arrived at 11pm and I was a bit worried because one of the entrance doors looks like a dirty entrance to a block of flats.
The reception is on the 5th floor, and there's a small lift to get there.
I was very pleasently surprised when we saw the reception. Clean, cosy, great service (very nice and helpful receptionist) and the room is just like being in a 3star hotel. The rooms on the 4th floor we renewed recently and are great. We stayed in a triple room. Comfortable beds, spacious room, double glazed windows, mainly quiet (specially considering it's the centre of town). No noise from the street. Bathroom is slightly small, but clean and has a hidromassage shower! Beds made every day, clean towels every day, heating works well, flat screen tv. Good price considering it's a triple room in the centre of Madrid, and having experienced the quality, I will definitely reccommend it to anyone who comes to Madrid in the future.
Well worth it!

I booked this visit based on my satisfaction during a previous stay in June of 2010. This time I was not happy wit the stay. Our first room had a bad smell and buzzing noise. When we asked for another room the woman at the desk was very rude and dismissive. The second room was VERY small -- not big enough for two people. I had paid extra for a terrace and because of the room design the terrace door (and thus the outside light source) was tucked into a small nook, along with a very small desk, away from the room, so we were not able to benefit from the light or the open terrace door. The lighting in the room was extremely poor - only a couple small lights in the ceiling and one small light next to the bed - and a security light above the door kept turning on and off all night long, thus interrupting our sleep. The phone in our room did not work and the WiFi connection was absolutely deplorable.

I will, however, say that I was very pleased with the comfortable bed. It was the best part of the stay.

Room Tip: The size of the rooms is not depicted well in the photos online. If I had known how small the doubl...

It was kind of pricy for the room that I got. I only stayed one night, but it has great location, near Sol and Gran Via, that area has plenty nightlife and things to see during the day. Clean room, with the basics that you need!

They offer wi-fi, every room has television, airconditioning/ heating, personal desk.

The position of this hostel is for sure the main quality . Just 5 min walking from puerta del sol. I visited the main attractions without needing of metro or buses. The counterpart is that the room was very tiny and there was no space to open my baggage, but the bathroom was the tiniest I've ever seen, I cannot wash my teeth with the door closed, no space left for moving arms. The cleanliness was pretty good and the bed as weel was comfortable. overall price/quality is quite in the avarage for the city.

Excellent location, just in the centre, close to the metro and at walking distance from the main attractions, the front desk personnel is nice and helpful. The rooms are quite different, some have access to a nice balcony, but mine didn't (it faced an ugly inner yard). Though it was small, my room looked nice, recently refurbished and the bathroom was ok. It was clean at my arrival but I don't think it was hoovered even once during my stay! They change the towels at your request (green policy)... but some have holes in them! There is a lot of noise due to very thin walls. The wi/fi is not very strong (there are moments when it doesn't work at all and you have to try to re-connect over and over again). From time to time there was an unpleasant smell (of sewage?) that I think was coming from the ventilation/ac system, because once turned off, the smell fades.
This place will have a lot to gain by fixing the internet problem and paying a little bit of attention to the cleanliness (eg. getting rid of the old towels, making sure the cleaning lady is doing her job properly).
Overall, there is a fair balance between the price and the offer, don't expect too much and be prepared for a noisy stay...that could work as an incentive for you to go out more and explore the lovely city.
