“Great little hostal”
Reviewed March 21, 2013

Superb location (Gran Via, close to Callao), everthing very close (Plaza Mayor 12 minute walk, Prado 20-25 minutes). Area full of restaurants, shops, theaters, etc. The Hostal on the 5th is clean, nice, modern and with great staff. If you are used to sleep in a very quiet enviroment, the rooms on the front (looking over the Gran Via) may be a bit too noisy.

Room Tip: room on the back of hotel if you don't value view, but a quiet night

the situation of hostal main street is very good in that sense that it's really in the centre of Madrid on the Gran Via , which is a noisy ,crowded Broadwaylike street . Sleeping with a window open is therefor not an option .
The hostal is situated on the 5 th floor of an apartment building.
At the reception people are extremely friendly and helpful (especially the young lady who is there most of the time).
We stayed in a neat , but very small room with an extremely small bathroom. Considering the price we paid, this is not surprising. But those who would like some more comfort, should certainly ask for the superior rooms which are much bigger and not much more expensive.. The supplement is worth it.
The shower curtain in the bathroom had a rather unpleasant smell which could become frankly disagreeable in summer i would imagine.
Breakfast is across the road and is rather basic: it consists of a coffee, orange juice, toast or
pastries.
But overall and considering the price, we had a nice stay and would recommend the place

Good value, excellent location and very friendly staff. Not only is it right opposite Callao metro station, but is also surrounded by supermarkets, restaurants, shops etc. The rooms,corridors and common areas were clean and well maintained and very compact (remember its a very central location, so space is at a premium). Nice fresh and tasteful room decor in blue and white. The staff were very warm and accommodating (we were traveling with a baby and needed to warm food, milk etc). Definitely recommended for a short stay. Wifi sometimes does not work, although the staff are more than happy to reset the modem and try.

Room Tip: The room at the furthest end (possible room 11) has almost no wifi coverage.

The hotel was near Callao Metro Station. The hotel was next to Mc Donald's and it was very easy to find out.

Near the hotel, there is super market, El Corte Inglés Callao. Foods were sold on B1 floor.

The room was very fashionable and romantic with white and blue color. It looks like a house in Greek islands. I was given 3 keys for entrance of building, entrance of hotel floor and my room. Because the hotel entrance was locked, only hotel staffs and guests could come in.

Though the room was fashionable, the facility was not useful. There was no table, safety box or refrigerator. So I don't recommend for long stay. Above all, I wanted a small table to eat.

The floor was white. I found the floor was not cleaned after daily room cleaning
