You cannot ask for better value. This was my first time alone in Spain, and I felt truly safe and comfortable while staying at Jaen. Yes, you must first be buzzed in to the building, but once you're in the third floor lobby, you're greeted by cheery orange walls and incredibly friendly service. The owner went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable even at midnight when I arrived, and as I had forgotten a US outlet converter, he spent many minutes going through his collection to find me one.
I was happy to find a comfy bed, nice TV, wifi connection, and more than enough room for a single traveler. Though I shared a bathroom, my room had it's own sink and shower for my use, which was extremely convenient. Everything was extremely clean and comfortable.
The hotel's location was as incredible as has been said--a few minutes walk from Paseo del Prado, the musuems, Parque del Retirro and more. Only 10-15 from Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor, and a few more minutes to the Palacio.
My most appreciative memory of the hostal was my departure. The owner went out of his way to book the airport service the night before my flight--talking on the phone with the people in Spanish and writing everything down for my use. Then, he himself awoke at 6:30 to knock on my door and make sure I was getting ready--an incredible relief as my alarm hadn't gone off! As I rushed downstairs he came after me to carry my suitcase and talk to the driver, going out of his way to make sure I would be at the airport safely. Wow. I was so sorry to say goodbye!
For the price and service, this hostal would have my highest recommendation for anyone looking to have a wonderful adventure in Madrid.
