“Very cheap, clean and great location”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

The rooms are very clean and simple, with bathroom ensuite, the beds are quite comfortable. The location is just perfect, right in the heart of Madrid and at the same time it's not too noisy.
When we arrived we had to change rooms because someone had been smoking in the room and the smell was awful. They changed us to another room without problem, and since they didn't have any doubles left they gave us a four bed room.
The price is really remarkable. They also have discounts for a bar where you can get meals.

3 friends and I stayed here for the first time and we truly recommend this place! For people with a budget to watch, this is definitely a great choice as the location is so wonderful that it's just a couple of footsteps to Plaza Mayor and San Miguel market.

The room wasn't exactly spacious, the toilet was pretty small, the lift was really small (could only fit one person with luggage(s)), the stairs were dark and uneven, but the nice service given by the receptionists and the location made up for all of that! It's approximately a 10-min walk from Sol metro station, but be sure to look out for the hostel as the sign is not exactly obvious. They offer food discount at a restaurant with pretty decent food as well.

This is definitely an accommodation to be considered if you have a budget, and do not mind the above-mentioned. It is definitely decent and clean enough for a good night's rest after being out for the whole day!

This was our second stay at Hostal Tijcal and we found it just as pleasant as our first. It is located on the 3rd floor, the stairs are dark and a bit slippery but there is a lift if you don't want to walk. The reception is open 24 hours so there is always someone to help you and all the staff we met spoke good English. The rooms are very small and fitting your luggage in can be an issue but given the price and location it didn't bother us, there is so much to see and do in Madrid we were not in the room much anyway. The bed was comfortable but the pillow is one long bolster rather than individual pillows which we did not like. There can be quite a lot of noise from the street and near by plazas but again this did not bother us.
It is an easy 10 minute walk from the train/metro at puerta del sol. The Hostal offers a discount at their restaurant (located in Hostal Tijcal 2 a 5 minute walk away). As of may 2013 it was a 30% discount and we found the food and service to be really good.
This is a great option for budget conscious travellers who are after location and price.

Situated less than a minute from Plaza Mayor, this budget hostal (small hotel) is basic, a bit scuffed round the edges, but a great place to lay your head down after a day touristing. We booked a double room on booking.com and found ourselves in a room (319) for four overlooking the street. We slept well and paid extra for the basic breakfast at €3pp. Would we return, for short stays, yes, for longer may look for somewhere offering a but more.

Oh, and the price, 1 night B&B, €55.

The hostel is perfect for a touristic travel, nothing luxurious of course but it was a good surprise and the staff was friendly. Perfecto for travelling with friends and short trips. For the price offered it is really worth it and the location is simply perfect, it is very close to most of the touristic places in the city center and there are a variety of restaurants near the hotel.
