“Super clean, friendly, close to transport and town.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 October 2012

We arrived into Madrid at 10.30 pm and wanted somewhere close to Atocha station. Highly recommend you map your route before you arrive as the station is huge and I think we made hard work of getting there and it took around 20 to 25 minutes. When we left we took the sneaky back way and it took 10 minutes. Security is excellent as you have to ring a bell at street level, then again once you´re in the building. There is a lift so only a couple of steps to carry your gear up. Rooms are large by Spanish standards and spotlessly clean, toiletries provided, enough towels, a safety box and air conditioning in the room and a small shower and toilet with very, very good hot water. Gentleman who was on the desk when we arrived speaks little English, but we managed perfectly well and he was genuinely welcoming. Great little spot. Close to the station, very easy 5 minute walk to the Reina Sofia and about 15 minutes very gentle stroll to the Prado. Lots of cheap eats around including bakeries, small corner grocery shops and a great Chinese Restaurant one street over (same road as the Reina Sofia)

Room Tip: The double room with shower/toilet is good for a couple - room for luggage and moving about in and a...

Travellers who would like a friendly, unpretentious place to stay in Madrid, which can be expensive, would be happy to know that Hostal Cordoba is terrific value. The friendliness and generosity of the proprietors, especially David, who speaks excellent English, is amazing. Though my friend and I had both booked single rooms, he immediately upgraded us to a triple and double respectively, putting my friend nearer the reception where the wi-fi reception was better. Even the cleaning staff greeted us warmly, and with smiles. Though the building is old, the rooms and bathrooms have been renovated and the whole place is safe and secure. My room was prettily furnished and well-lighted. A large window overlooked the street and let in light with the white curtains. We really enjoyed our stay here and wished we had booked more days, especially as everything is accessible, casual eateries and Atocha Station within walking distance, not to mention the museums.

Room Tip: A room further inside, and not too near the reception, might be a bit quieter.

It's a small hostel, a bit rusty but very clean. The location is very near to Atocha train station, I think it's two blocks away fron the station. The owners are very helpful, one of them did not speak English but made effort to answer our questions. If you are used to staying at hostels then this place is suitable for you.

Room Tip: If you get a room facing the road, you get the view of the street but it can get slightly noisy at n...
