I chose this hostal based on its location and previous comment from TA users. I booked a double room, didn't manage to get upgrade to the apartment since we went during holy week, it's quite busy. It's so true that the location is just perfect, it's safe and clean but it absolutely doesn't feel like a hotel. After all a hostal is a hostal, I stayed there for three night for price of 70 euros per night, it's not particularly cheap but considering the location I think it's worth the value.

On the down side the toilet and the shower room is two seperate room, It is so small that a person will barely fit in. The hairdryer doesn't work, There is no shelf, it's a hole in the wall for you to put things in.

On the plus side, it's literally close to everything puerta de sol is less than 5 mins walk a way. The wifi works perfectly without any problem, staff at reception are very helpful and polite. There is a small safe on the wall, it's small but enough to fit your passport and some cash in.

Room Tip: If your build is not small you might want to ask them if you can fit into their toilet or shower roo...

We booked a triple room because the doubles were all taken. The place looked good so the little extra for the larger room still represented value. I emailed and asked if a double bed was included as part of the triple room. Esmeralda replied that the triple room contained three single beds. I thanked her and said we would still take the room. When we arrived I was greeted by Esmerelda and she gave us the news that she had upgraded us into a 2 bedroom apartment in the adjacent building - for the same price! What wonderful service. The location is perfect for viewing all the main attractions and we spent 4 great days wandering around beautiful Madrid

This hotel is very spunky. Completely restructured and on the second floor, it is very smart and minimalist in style, furnishing and decor. Lots of marble tiles, white doors and black frames everywhere, frosted glass, wooden floors and huge framed pictures of the Alhambra in Granada. Our room was quite spacious with very comfy beds, TV (only Spanish channels, though), desk, air con and bedside tables. Free WIFI in the rooms, Bit of a challenge to have the toilet and shower in an alcove directly off the room with frosted glass walls and doors! To be honest, you can't see through the glass (only vague shapes) but it could be inhibiting for some. I think that the more expensive rooms had what I call "proper" bathrooms. Great shower with one of those massive rain shower heads coming directly from the ceiling and a drench of water like a waterfall in full descent. Fantastic after a day's sightseeing! All extremely smart, modern, spotless and efficient.
Reception is open 24 hours per day and the staff are unfailingly polite and helpful - and speak English which makes it even better!

The location is unbelievable. Only around 50 metres from the Puerta del Sol and walking distance to just about everywhere if you like to walk - and the Sol Metro just around the corner for those who don't. The hotel is in a small, lively street and the area is full of eating and drinking places of all prices, sizes and levels of sophistication. You won't be starved or starving!

Breakfast is served in a charming and characteristic restaurant called "El Buscar del Tempo" and it is very generous and served by delightful young people.

A really comfortable place to stay and really really good value for expensive Madrid!

Just got back from a 2 night stay at this hostal and can't speak highly enough of it.
The location is all of a minutes walk away from the Sol Metro station and main square, The rooms were very clean and comfortable & the staff were very friendly and helpful.
I didn't expect our room to be cleaned as we were only staying 2 nights and it only being budget accommodation but I was pleasantly surprised to find clean towels had been provided, the beds had been made and the cleaner had even put away our toiletries which we'd left out and they'd folded up the clothes which we'd left thrown on the bed!
I go to Madrid once a year to watch Real Madrid play and will definitely be staying here again!

This hotel is a gem. Helpful friendly staff, very reasonably priced and a top location literally only a few steps from the centre of Madrid. My sister lost her case in transit and the staff member on duty assisted her and she had it delivered to the hotel. We were three sisters sharing a room. From the hotel we could walk to all the sites we wanted to see.

Room Tip: I tried three rooms and they were all good.

Hostal Madrid is excellently located for a city trip to Madrid. It is just 100m from Sol. The staff of Hostal Madrid is very friendly and helpful providing us many valuable hints for our stay in Madrid. The rooms are spacious, have a nice design, and are tidy+clean. The Wifi was working very fast in both our rooms. Both my wife and me as well as our 3 kids enjoyed our stay in Hostal Madrid very much. We would definitely come again and recommend it highly to people on a city trip to Madrid.
