The Hostal Gonzalo was an excellent choice. I was staying there for three nights and have no regrets. First, location: the Hostal is located in one of the most vibrant neighborhoods of Madrid (Las Letras). For first time visitors, this is a great location since all the major sites (including the big museums) are walking distance. The connection to public transport is excellent and so is the close distance to the train stations and the bus stop from and to airport. For returning visitors, you'll find many bars, cafes, jazz clubs, restaurants and all within a 10 minutes walk. The Hostal is located in a relatively small street (Cervantes) on the third floor so the noise is at a rather low level.
My room was rather spacious for a Hostal of that price, very clean, no non-sense furniture, air-conditioning, TV, and 24 hours WIFI connection for free. Bathroom was spotless (bring your own shampoo).
There is no breakfast, but there are enough bars and cafes just outside where one can have excellent coffee and whatever comes with it in Madrid.
The owners Javier and Antonio are very friendly and helpful for all questions and problems coming up.
Again, this is not a luxury hotel (thus don't expect a pool, a fitness center or things like that), it is a Hostal or a little Pension in one the most wonderful neighborhoods of Madrid and the price is more than fair for Madrid.
