First: I cannot understand why ppl writing bad reviews here , expecting a hotel when its all clear that 12rooms is a hostel.

Which means low budget staying. We payed 19€ per person and had a room for two with an own bathroom. Thats totally worth it. Ok its next to a disco, but thats possible to expect in a city like madrid.

We liked it!

We stayed one night in this hotel. We had a problem on arrival since we had not been told we needed to collect the key from another hostel but they were very friendly when we did check in. The room looked ok and was very clean but there was no internet despite having a computer in the room. It is very central a few minutes from puerta del sol.

We stayed over the weekend and the room rates for weekend were higher than the weekdays. We took a room with a private bathroom, the room is fairly small as others have mentioned in their reviews, but if you are not expecting luxury then it is fine. Given we stayed over weekend, I personally thought the price was steep for what we were offered. The good things about the hotel are : 1) The free walking tour, it gave us a good overview of the city and helped us roam around later. 2) The Mini bar is refilled everyday :) 3) Thee room and bathroom is very clean (we had some issue with the shower and hot water, but it got sorted)


The hotel is fairly well located, within 500 Mts from the Sol station. Though it is difficult to find the hotel on the street, we were on Nunez de Arce, but we couldn't find the hotel. After finding the hotel, we found out that the reception is across the road (JC Hotels). Overall I would have been very happy with this place if I paid ~ 100 Euros for 3 nights instead of the 140 Euros we paid.

My girlfriend and I have just returned from spending 4 nights at the 12 rooms Hostel. We chose it knowing that for £25 a night it would be very basic but we just wanted a bed to crash in while we explored! As many other reviews have stated, it isn't easy to find due to a small sign. If you travel down Nunez de Arce, look for the black door with a small 12 rooms sign above it. The reception is opposite the bottom of that street in a seperate hotel called JC hotels.

Good points about the hostel:

# Very clean, cleaned every day with a spotless bathroom (which is huge!) and fresh sheets and towels daily.

# location is fantastic, 300m from Sol which is the main centre of Madrid and surrounded by fantastic restaurants.

# The room has a mini fridge which is filled daily with pepsi, water and a weak wine- all for free! lovely to have a cold drink to come home to at the end of a long day!

# Free wifi and a computer in the room!

# Private bathroom, seperate to the room is huge and very clean.

# Good value breakfast which you can add to booking for 3 euros a head, definately worth doing! You get a coffee, juice, yoghurt, pain au chocolat\croissant for this. (keep an eye on your bag, my girlfriend had her purse taken during breakfast until I intervened and got it back! Don't let this put you off at all but be aware it goes on around the city).

Bad points:

# The room is very small, if you want a spacious room this isn't for you.

# If you have difficulties with stairs and\or are unsteady on your feet, the staircase is a highly polished slippery old wood and is uneven and in my opinion quite dangerous.

# We had minor issues with the heating not working in the room and the computer monitor not working which we didnt follow up as had no need for these.

Would I stay here again, yes I would. For location alone it is worth it and is comfortable and clean. If I went with family, the rooms are too small and I cannot comment on the other bathrooms as we specified a private bathroom. Definately suited for backpackers and non fussy travellers, not so much for those who want luxury.

Although it was an ensuite room we booked, it was all basic. No air-conditioning really was a problem since we went in the summer and it was super hot that my friends couldn't sleep, they woke up soaked in sweat...We had to keep the windows opened but then my friend worried about out safety during the night...The bathroom was small but the shower was good.

There's a computer in the room, surprisingly. It's a granny computer but it works fine with internet (would rather swap it with an air conditioner though)

Location was its selling point to us, within walking distance to the city center. As we walked down the main street - Gran Via, we saw many hotel on both sides of the streets, all looked very grand. So I suppose for we couldn't find a much better choice given we were in budget.

One thing to note, the reception is about 30 seconds walk from the rooms, on a different street. Just look for the sign "JC rooms" (a small black board hanging out of the building right opposite to the street where the apartment is).
