“It actually worths 10 euros for night”
Reviewed 31 August 2013

We payed 10 euros per person per night for a double without private bathroom: even price. It's really just a place for sleep. No reception, no breakfast included. Unfortunately the bathrooms in common weren't all that clean. The position is a bit strategic because is really next to the station and to Sophia Reina museum and 10 minutes from Prado. But among hostels, I've seen really better for almost the same price.

Stayed here with friend my first couple nights of a very long trip. Not a very social place but very clean and comfortable. Wifi is good and the people who run the place are very nice. Good location but not great a bit of a walk to get to central Madrid.

Chose it because it was cheap and right next to Atocha station. The location and price were excellent. The room (we stayed at a double room without a private bathroom) was quite small and basic, we hardly fit two suitcases in it. The room opened to Atocha street, and although it could get a bit noisy, the view was great and the room had more light than other rooms inside the building. Would stay there again if only have to spend a night, but would choose something else for longer stays.

Needed a room for the night with a private bathroom. This place was clean, friendly and most importantly quiet. Its location is perfect being only a 5 min walk from Sol.
Would use again when i need a room for the night.

We chose this hostal as it was within walking distance to and from the Atocha station. Tip: although it was about 10-15 minutes walk from Atocha, the walk is mainly uphill (not good with luggage), so take the metro to Anton Martin which really was about 50 metres from the main door. The main attractions were all within walking distance. Lots of cafes and restaurants in the area.

If I remember correctly, the hostal was situated on the first and second floor of the building and had no lift, so may not be suitable for travellers with luggage.

Overall we were satisfied with the hostal as we only needed a warm shower and a good night's sleep. Our triple room with three single beds and a modern bathroom was in the "family quarters" section. The people checking us in spoke English but the family taking care of the hostal did not. They accepted payment only in cash.

Reviewed 18 October 2011

I didn't expect the amenities of a hotel. The walls are paper-thin and you can hear everything. The room and bath were immaculate. However, I had emailed ahead and asked if there would be someone on staff who could call for a cab if my shuttle failed to arrive for my 4 am departure to Barajas. I was assured that the reception desk was staffed 24 hours.

Fortunately, I called the shuttle service that I had reserved and confirmed my reservation the day before. When I jumped out of bed to haul my bags downstairs, the entire entryway was dark. No one was on staff. Fortunately, my shuttle was there (Aerocity for anyone traveling in Barcelona or Madrid is great), I loaded my bags downstairs, turned on the light in the entryway and dropped my keys on a table. Such was checking out.

I'm fine w/the price for what I got. What I am not happy about is the assurance that someone would call a cab if something went wrong on my departure date.
