The staff here was great--even when they didn't speak English, they bent over backwards to help. The rooms are very basic, but completely serviceable. The internet works well, and if you ask, the staff will make every attempt to find you the quietest place they have. The apartments are a real bargain--on the other side of the reception area, up in a funky old-fashioned elevator, but quite spacious with a little kitchenette space. At this price, and in this location, a great find!

Room Tip: Ask for a quiet room, and they will try.

Based on other reviews we decided to book for initially a couple of nights. Certainly compared to other Spanish cities such as Seville, Cordoba & Barcelona it was considerably cheaper. Location wise it is brilliant, just around the corner from Sol metro and walking distance to most of the 'must see' sights. Potential to be a bit noisy (but where in Spain is it not?) however, we asked for a room on a high level so it wasn't too bad. Good room size & comfortable bed. We decided to extend another few nights as we were enjoying Madrid so much and liked the hostal. They suggested we take one of their apartments in the building next door and we were given one at the top with wonderful rooftop views. It came with washing machine too and little kitchen & the lift there was one of those little old fashioned numbers with internal wire closing door. We just loved our time there and would recommend this place to anyone. The staff too were most obliging and helpful with any query we had. Terrific!

Aha, next to this hostel you have: 24h little shop with fresh bakery and coffy in MC Donalds:-).Fully recommend staying this hostel.

Staff friendly and respectful. Premises and room all clean and comfortable. Big King-sized bed. I did not try to use the Wi-fi, so I cannot rate that aspect. Hot water available all throughout our stay (April 8-11, 2017); Air conditioner was not available in our room even though advertised. It was explained to us that use of A/C is authorized for the hostels in the city depending on the season. (This sounded odd, but we don't know the rules for the municipality, so we accepted the information). It was good that it was early Spring and we just needed to crack the balcony door a bit to get the room cold and lose the "stuffy" feeling. My husband and I found that the location is unbeatable, literally just a few steps from Plaza Mayor and in the middle of all the action and fun - barely heard the noise from the street late at night in the room and it was the beginning of the Holy Week Holidays, then again, we were too exhausted to care after walking all throughout the city. No breakfast in the premises, but affordable restaurants are all around. One block from Plaza del Sol. No safe in the room, but very pleased with the daily housekeeping of the rooms. If arriving late at night, make sure you call them and announce your arrival beforehand because the front desk could be left unattended at times late at night while the staff looks after other areas. Will book again when I return to Madrid if returning in early Spring and if quality is maintained in the coming years.

My wife and I stayed for a week. We walked a lot, took the subway, took the RENFE Circaneas, saw lots of museums. It was great!

The front-desk staff was very helpful -- with enough English to work with us. There's a 24-hour convenience store adjacent, for milk and quick foods, and a coffee machine in the lobby (1 Euro for cafe au lait). The room was small, but clean and fairly new, with a street view out a floor-to-ceiling opening window.

Being dead-center in the tourist / restaurant district has its trade-off:

. . C. de Esparteros is rather noisy, through about 2 AM.

Bring earplugs, or close the window to keep the noise out.

The room itself didn't have as much storage space as we wanted, or enough table / desk space. I suspect that's because it allows for a third single bed to be brought in, and a bureau or large table would make that impossible. So 4 stars, rather than 5.

We would be happy to stay there again.
