“Very nice hostel”
Reviewed 2 June 2014

In the centre of town, very nice rooms; everything is new and shiny. Very good service. The owner is very friendly and extremely helpful. Any information you want, he will give to you. There is free, working(!) wifi and a flatscreen tv. Everything you need for the bathroom except a hairdryer. No elevator, but the owner will help you get your things to your room. We will certainly come back here!

The owner of this hostal is the sweetest man I've ever met at an accommodation. Make sure you ask for his suggestions and take them. He guides you away from tourist trap restaurants and gives great recommendations for cheap places to eat. On top of that, the room was spotless each and every night. The location is also ideal. It is within walking distance to all the major attractions and there is a laundromat and 24 hour mini market nearby.

Our room was clean and spacious and included a computer for internet access.
Maid service was a pleasant surprise considering it was a hostal.
Be aware that the hostal is two flights up with no elevator.
The somewhat eccentric owner was very nice, friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: 206 was quiet - in the back.

Well we booked this hostal after reading the reviews on trip advisor and we must admit this was a great place to stay. It was bang in the centre of things where everything was accessible. You infact have a Romanticism museum right opposite of the hostal. It has absolutely amazing rooms with great hospitality by the owners (Jose). Jose is a great host and he helped us at every step. He is infact a very lively and super friendly man who is always high on energy. The hostal is on the 2nd floor but the owner was extremely helpful with our luggage. You have to simply ask for it and he obliges and assists without any hiccup. The ambience of the room was fantastic with nice aesthetic sense, with beautiful and clean bathrooms. They clean and make up your bed everyday. Its a quite hostal. The nearest metro station is tribunal which is about 200 metres from the hotel. Also, there is carrefour express nearby which will help you with your basic needs at rock-bottom prices. The hostal overlooks Romantic museum which also has a beautiful garden area for breakfast. There are also many pubs nearby and a 24hours supermarket in the adjoining lane. The tap water is potable. Its worth every penny as it is centrally located, safe, clean and with great hospitality. Must stay.

Room Tip: You can choose from a quite room and street facing room. Street facing room is supposedly noisy but...

Very nice place with a central location, the metro station is too close. Also the romanticism museum is directly infront of the hostel. It's very good value for money. Rooms are spacious & tidy. The owner "Jose" is extremely friendly, I would like to thank him as he helped us in our "excess" luggages & went to grab a taxi for us at our departure. If you need a clean & tidy place only to sleep over at night after a long touristic day then Hostal Benamar will be the good choice.

What everyone with 4/5 star rating has said is right.
The location is superb, the cleanliness without question and the staff go over and beyond the call of duty.
In Madrid, nobody speaks English but here, at the Benamar, they try their best and always have a smile.
When you meet the owner, ask his advice( and take it). Local knowledge is only of value if freely given. His is.
Breakfast across the street is good value( very cheap for eurozone) and try to find time for a journey to Toledo(DIY, by train, then book a tour when you get there- do it from Madrid and ripoff is the mode)
