The accommodation was cheap and if that is the criterion this hostel can be a choice.
The room they gave us was facing the Gran Via. The views are good but the noise of traffic is all night. They had inner rooms but smaller. As our room was not great I am in doubt if the inner rooms will be good option.
The air conditioning in our room did not work. As if by chance we do not need it, do not question the reception, but then checked the hotel website they charge as optional air conditioning (5 € per night and room). For me is something that I will not choose this hotel again.The bathroom was small, with half bath, and no offering (gel, shampoo, etc. ..). Cleaning is on the threshold of acceptability. Could be better. The room was one floor above the reception which we had to access by stairs. The elevator only goes up to the level of reception.
Although a metro station is a 50 meters, the station "Calhau" is not a main station and therefore implies that almost always have to make the transfer station of the "Poerta del Sol" or in the "Gran Via". The "Poerta del Sol" Station is 250 meters on foot.
The area is a expensive area to take breakfast, for example. In the area "Poerta del Sol" there are several cafes offer breakfast at prices much more cheap.
In this same building there are other hostais so if I´ll choose this type of accommodation again I´ll probably try one of the others.
