I would say this is more of a guesthouse than a hostel. I stayed for 3 nights, check in was smooth and simple and the man was very pleasant.
The room was attractive and had everything i needed and was very clean.
The location of this hostel is perfect. Right by Gran via metro and close to Sol and Plaza Mayor. even the royal palace is within walking distance.
I don't usually comment on noise but felt i have to on this occasion. It's an old building so the walls are paper thin, maybe some carpet in the hallway would combat the noise of people walking back and forth. However the main problem was the bar downstairs. On my last night their pumping music was still going strong at 0545 and the music is loud in the rooms.
Also despite my booking confirmation saying breakfast was included there was no mention of breakfast upon check in or at all throughout my stay.
Wasn't a problem as the reviews on here said it wasn't great but still would have been nice if it were mentioned.
All in all though a great say for very cheap in the centre of Madrid.
