“Great location, not so great place”
Reviewed 24 April 2014

The hostel location is great, right in the heart of Madrid. On the other hand the place continuously smells of food ( and not the good kind). One very hot Madrid night I asked for the air conditioning remote to turn it on in my room but the owner told me that air conditioning was only available during the summer. I had a terrible night because of that.

Reviewed 6 November 2012

Hostal Palacios is perfectly situated on the Fuencarral street where there is a lot of boutiques for shopping. It is located between the metro stations Gran Via and Tribunal in the city center. Many bars and restaurants are at a walking distance from the hostal in the Chueca and Sol neighborhoods.

The staff is really sweet, they only speak spanish.
My friend and I stayed in a room with two separate beds, with a shower and toilet which are clean.There is wi-fi connexion and a TV. Your PJ is even sweetly folded when they clean the room ! There is no breakfast served but there is multiple cafés in the area.

The walls are quite thin but as there is not much noise from the other guests you won't be disturb. The rooms overlook a little courtyard, there is no noise from the streets which are pretty busy.

The room was a realy friendly, basic room. The staff was very helpful, though they don't speak english ( just spanish and a little german). The room was cleaned every day. There was WIFI connection and TV, there was a lots of shop, café, restaurant, suovenir sops in the near, and every sights were just a couple of minutes far by walk.
I would go there again, and i recommend it to everyone. :)
