Hostal La Casa de La Plaza
Ranked #280 of 440 Hotels in Madrid
Reviewed 18 October 2011

This place is cheap and basically runs like a youth hostel, except that you have a private room to yourself.

It is VERY clean. It is quiet, and yet the location is EXCELLENT.

Beware: the staff don't speak English. The problem is the shared shower/bathrooms. Depending on who the other guests are, your shower experience might be compromised by the bad hygiene of the person before you.

I would stay there again, just because of the great value for the neighborhood.
If you have a sense of humor, you'll love it.

The staff were friendly and helpful, rooms were very clean and bathrooms were also clean. Disappointing that there weren't any lockers in the rooms for you to lock away valuables but the location of this hostel more than made up for that. Directly opposite the Mercado San Miguel and with lots of great places surrounding to go for good food and good wine. There is however the problem with the other noisy travellers that stay here and also the noise from the outside recycling bins being emptied. However, personally, I did not find it a bother. My two other companions did.

I've been there fore 3 nights. The location is perfect, right in the center, in front of Mercado de San Miguel. We arrived and the guy from the reception didn't understand english.. So i spoke a mix of italian, but I understood him. I paid the first night by credit card in advance, but he didn't get it that we payed and couldn't count 200-40... Than after we finally got it and went to the rooms. I forgot my towel at home and went back to the reception and i've seen, that the guy NOW was speaking English with other tourists, but with me he spoke only spanish! The rooms were ok, but the bed not! They were from IKEA and it was not the best.
Bathrooms were ok, cleaned every day....

Stayed here for two night with wife and friends in a shared room. We'd only booked a room for 4 but got to a room for 6 all to our selves. The place looks recently done up. Although on the cheap. And it's clean and all. It's a hostal not a hostel so do not expect a great social element. However the bathrooms are shared and can run low on hot water. There's plenty of bathrooms all in decent to good condition so not much of a queue. The people running the place are nice and friendly. The place itself is just opposite the market in the plaza which is not as noise as you might expect but dont expect to sleep through the noise when the bins get emptied in the morning. All in all we were all four very happy with our stay here. The central location is absolutely amazing for the price and although cheap it was a comfortable stay.

I cannot recommend this hostel enough ... it is smack bang in the centre of Madrid! Despite being a large capital city, everything is within walking distance and the hostal itself is great. My boyfriend and I stayed in a private twin room for just 15 euros per person per night and the room was great - spacious with large windows looking out onto the sqaure, two comfortable beds and two fans, which certainly came in use! There is an indoor market and bars/restaurants on the square which of course creates noise but this stops around midnight. The hostel is between TWO supermarkets, which is very handy! The staff are also very friendly and helpful - we were put in the wrong room by mistake so when we arrived back at the hostel midnight, we were informed that reception staff had moved all our stuff into the other room and explained that there had been a mistake, which was fine. The bathrooms are also clean and the showers are good. The hostel won "best staff" award from hostelbookers.com earlier this year, and it really shows.

Good location and clean rooms.
Only minus was that we could not sleep due to the toughtlessness of other travellers and because of the thin walls we could hear everything that happened in the others room.
