Like the other review from me550 NOISY...we booked this for a Fri/Sat/Sun for our last couple days in Spain, last stop Madrid. The entrance is a bit dodgy-grungy, the elevator was rickety (part of the floor is held together with duct tape). The staff was nice enough and showed us to our room. The hallway towards the rooms from the main area smells a bit (not the most pleasant smell). The room was quite spacious and clean and decent. However, the listing said there was a phone in the room as well as a safe. We didn't really care for the phone so was not a big deal that there was not one, and the "safe" was a safe with a swinging door without any lock, again not the worst thing but not useful. Also our shower head didn't have a mount that worked so when you shower you had to hold the handle-again a slight inconvenience. The worst was we had just traveled a long day from Malaga and arrived Friday night around 9pm and you could already hear loud music and people talking outside. This hostel is on a very busy popular street filled with restaurants/bars lots of nightlife...the party outside didn't stop until 7am. Then at 8am, in the front room where breakfast is served were several hostel guests loudly yapping away making tons of noise. Things didn't quiet down until 10am. We left at noonish/1pm and like me550 didn't get any refund for the following two days we booked. It ruined our first full day in Madrid since we were so exhausted from lack of sleep. Wouldn't ever stay here again. There are other options that are much more pleasant for about the same price elsewhere with just as good location. Not worth the money.
