We were booked to stay there on May Day weekend in 2015. Three days before our arrival in Madrid (when we were already travelling and could not do much about it!), we got an e-letter saying that our reservation was cancelled because, so it said, the hostal was undergoing "renovations". But, the message added, we could go to their partner,... More

Horrible place. Tiny rooms with no windows, toilets smaller than in a plane. The cover for the bed wasn't even big enough to cover the whole bed and the only heating in there was an electric heater that would not ever heat enough because the room had no isolation whatsoever. The location of the place is great, but is not... More

I wouldnt wish my enemies to stay here. We were told the hostal was full and taken to another building where there was a room or should i say prision cell. It was 2meters by 2 meters. Soiled matresses, and they charged me 5euro for the bedlinen. I stayed 30minutes at this before deciding to book elsewhere its very dirty,... More

The room was some sort of cold bathroom! Small toilet and shower is really no problem, because it is so cheap, but such a terrible state: in the middle of the night a piece of the wall fell right next to my head.

Unbelievably small place. Dirty. No heating. Noisy. You don't know where they are going to send you for your room (seems like they have several flats). The water heater wasn't working and it was freaking winter, for God's sake, I had to take COLD SHOWERS ON FEBRUARY. Well-located, but I can't recommend it.

Be careful with this hostal. Our room was a disaster: extremely small (1.5 x 2 meter), absolutely no storage space, dark, the small window could not be safely closed, mold on the walls. We did not want to stay in that room. They could not give us another room but promised to refund the money payed with the reservation. Since... More

would never stay here again, beds are dirty and unstable, rooms are tiny- nothing like the gallery would lead to you believe. Very noisy early in the mornings, bathroom looks like it's been there 100 years. lifts are unpredictable, doesn't have any hostel feel to it at all. service is terrible, came home one night and found 5 people sleeping...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.

“Rooms in the Paseo del Prado building might be a little noisier if your windows are open. The location a few streets away has wifi. You might need to call the hostel when you arrive, so keep their number handy.”
