My 2 sons and I stayed at Hostal Gonzalo from 3/18 to 3/23. We stayed in room 8, which is a triple room and away from the street. This hostal was super clean, the people very nice and the location was superb. The room overlooks a courtyard and it was very quiet all day. The beds were firm and comfortable. This triple was quite spacious compared to European standards. I've stayed in smaller hotel rooms in NYC.
There are 2 metro stops about 5 minutes walk away, and so are the museums. There are many good restaurants a few blocks away, including one across the street. The train station is 10 mins away. The Sol is about 10 - 15 mins walk away. We felt very safe in this neighborhood.
Soap is provided but not shampoo. I wish there were hooks on the bathroom door. There were 2 glasses in the room but no cups or anything to make hot water. The wifi was strong in room 8. They accept credit cards, but prefer cash so we paid in euros. One person (Javier?) speaks very good English but not the older couple.
We were very satisfied with our stay. We would definitely stay in Hostal Gonzalo the next time we visit Madrid.
