“Clean and modern hostal.”
Reviewed 29 September 2010

My husband and I stayed here for 3 nights in September. The hostal is walking distance to all the museums, popular plazas, and subway stations. However, I am not sure how safe it is at night as my husband got pickpocketed on our first night. Despite this, the hostal itself was clean, modern, and the staff was friendly though they do not speak any English.

This is a small hostal, on the 4th floor of a building (ring bell to enter), with an antique but perfectly working lift. Note there are maybe 5 of so steps to reach the lift.

The staff are very friendly, helpful and efficient, but just be aware they don't speak any English at all, so have your phrasebook handy! We didn't find this to be a major problem, though.

The rooms are decent sized, and probably better than what one would expect for the price paid. Due to it being in an old building though, there may be some plumbing issues - not major problems, just water taking a long time to drain and things like that. Some rooms face the street, which give better views but also more noise, so if you're a light sleeper, ask for a quieter room - we were too tired to let any noise keep us awake!

We had some hesitation booking it due to there being no English reviews at the time, but relied on the foreign language reviews and the help of google translate :) We now think this hostal should rank higher than in currently does.

Reviewed 30 March 2010

this hotel is very cute: the staff is very kind, the rooms are little but very comfortable, the price per night is excellent. The one thing I really didn't appreciate is that there weren't double beds, but only single beds put together.

Reviewed 21 March 2010

This place is all you need to rest your head. A decent bed, a small, but moderinized bathroom, a flat screen TV with a decent channel selection and really close to all the bars and restaurants in the Huertas / Santa Ana area. No frills, but really clean and comfortable at 50 Euro a night (the cheapest dives in Madrid cost at least 70). Do learn some Spanish though, because the front door staff don't appear to speak much English.
