The hostal is located just a few blocks off of Puerta del Sol, along a pedestrian street with restaurants, shops, and bars. It is easily located if you look UP, where there is a sign along the side of the building's upper floors.
You need to buzz into the building each time, and the office is located on the third floor. You will need to be let into the section with the rooms each time you return, but at least it is secure. Access is 24 hours.
The rooms are small and basic, but adequate for your needs. They are clean and well laid out. The one odd thing: we had a double room, but they only gave us one pillow--a long, "bodypillow" type. So essentially we had to share this long pillow during our stay. I am sure you could request another, if you like.
One warning: they area is very party-oriented. Which means there is a lot of noise, especially--but not exclusively--on weekends. On friday, we heard singing and chanting from the street until 4am.
We would certainly stay here again, but we might look for something a little more posh for a couple's getaway. This is more a home-base for a short layover in the city during a tour of Spain.
