Situated in the Gran Via, very central, despite being on such a busy road, we couldn't hear any of the noise from our room. We would advise if going by train to get off at Callao Station rather than the Gran Via as from Callao to the Hostal, it is literally just a few metres distance.
The actual Hostal is situated on the 9th Floor, however when you arrive you need to go to the 8th Floor to check in. Please note that you cannot check in before 3pm, we didn't know this, however they were kind enough to let us leave our luggage.
There was a kitchen & although we had asked to use it when we booked our room, on arrival, we were told that it was for private use & we were not to use it.
Wouldn't say it was the cleanest of hostels we have stayed in, but for just a couple of nights, it was fine. Generally, the staff were polite & helpful. There was a computer available to guests on the 8th Floor. We had an enjoyable stay.
