What a find! I'm loathe to write a good review because I'm sure the prices will go up if everyone finds out how wonderful this place is! I was knocked out by the location, on a pedestrianised shopping street surrounded by great restaurants, close to 2 tube stations and a 10 minute walk from where the airport bus stops! The...

Hostal Abril is in the heart of Madrid. If you love shopping than you have to choose this hotel. I'm addict to shopping and I actually had KIKO our neighbors I loved it! Our street is full of shops and now its even better that primark is just round the corner. - the owners / receptionist are extremely friendly !...

This was a wonderful stay. The hostal is located right on the central pedestrian zone near the Gran Via. The room is clean but rather basic - but the staff made up for it. Marina and others were so helpful in terms of suggestions. Offered us a cueva wine even. There are other more luxurious places but this was definitely...

This hostel was amazing. Marina was the most helpful person I have ever met. She made our stay perfect. The room we had was very functional, spotlessly clean and comfortable. I would recommend this hostel to anyone looking for a cheap stay in Madrid.

Stayed at Hostal Abril in July 2015, the hotel was mainly booked due to its reasonable price (around £50 per night). Whilst we were visiting, Madrid was in the middle of a heatwave - making it hotter than usual, so the aircon in the room was much needed! Overall the room was clean & tidy, it had everything you would...

The location of this hostal is ideal. We could walk to all the major attractions and did not have to use the Metro at all. It is surrounded by restaurants, Tapas bars, supermarkets (if needed) and is in the centre of the shopping district with only a short walk to Gran Via. We could also walk(10-15 mins) to the pick...

OK, so my single room was tiny and bathroom was down the hall. But the location? 5 stars. Friendliness? 5 stars. Price? Rock bottom. Overall value? Does the job! I wouldn't mind staying here again for outbound flights from Madrid that aren't too early.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
