“The bed was too short, but the location is excellent!”
Reviewed 27 February 2012

The hotel is said to have two stars, to my mind it would deserve three one as well. This hostel is located on the second floor of a classic Madrid-style house, the rooms are extremely clean, each of them has free wifi and TV, towels and shower gel included. Only the bed was way too short (about 1,70 cms), not well suited for an adult man. Each Madrid sight is within a 5 minutes walk (Gran via, Puerta del sol, Plaza mayor, etc) and the surroundings offer a busy night life with clubs and bars.

Room Tip: Some rooms go to the inner air-well, what is quiet but dark and looks kinda sad... Try to avoid it.

Reviewed 4 November 2011

The hotel is greatly located, only 5 minutes walk to the metro station "Gran Via" and 10 minutes walk from "Plaza del Sol" (the real center of Madrid).

Although the exterior might not look very promising (I must admit at first I was disappointed by its look), inside it is the other way around. The rooms are extremely clean and they have everything your need for your stay: comfortable bed and a clean bathroom. If you are a light sleeper, you might have some trouble, since street noise can be heard. If you are like me, you will not even notice it.

Unfortunately, there is no breakfast (or food, whatsoever) option. However, you can find good and cheap places to eat on the same street (try "Vesubio Pizzas").

Some people of the staff might look a bit rude or too serious at first, but apparently this is the Spanish way, don't take it wrong.

In conclusion, this is a place that I would definitively recommend because its cleanliness, ubication, and price.

Room Tip: If you are a light sleeper, ask for a room that does NOT face the street.

Reviewed 15 November 2007

We spent 3 nights in this hostal in the heart of Madrid. The rooms are small and quite basic, just what you would expect in a budget hotel, and it might be a good idea to have ear-plugs handy, as the Chueca area is very busy and noisy especially during the weekend. However, you get good value for your money, the place is very clean, the beds reasonably comfortable and the managers are kind and helpful. The location is great, within an easy walk from Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor, and very close to the metro. Of course, Chueca is the gay barrio, so I would not suggest this accommodation to someone who is not gay-friendly. Overall, this is a good place to stay in Madrid on a tight budget.

Reviewed 11 July 2004

This hostal operates as an overflow for the Hostal Odesa in the same building.

Female couples may consider this to be a confortable gay-friendly option, however the staff is more hostile towards gay male guests.

Males will be much more welcome at the nearby Hostal Hispa Domus on Calle de San Bartolome.
