I definitely recommend this place if you are on a budget and want a good, simple room with really great hosts. It is in an excellent location if you want to be in the tourist center of Madrid, right between Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor. The hostal is inexpensive, up to date, and spotless. The rooms have double pane windows which keep out most of the street noise (you ARE in the middle of a big city, after all), air conditioning, and a safe (costs 1 euro every time you use it). Wifi is free and my room had a strong signal. The hostal is in an older building so the room had only two extra electrical outlets - something to keep in mind if you travel with a lot of electronics. The bathroom was very small and tight, especially the toilet, which could be a problem for large people. This is a simple hostal, so no breakfast, but there is plenty of food all around.
