“Vacation for new year eve”
Reviewed 8 January 2012

The hostel has been a very comfortable place where to rest. In a very central position, it is very clean, you have your own bathroom and free Internet wifi connection! The personel doesn't talk too much, but obviously if you need help, they are there to give you assistance. You have lots of different bar or place where you can have breakfast or lunch. It is also very near to the metro station (anton martìn, exit "impares" for the first arrival). Very good prices as well!
I do suggest this hotel.

The hostal Cervelo is located near all the major attraction and sites in Madrid. Within walking distance from the Atocha rail station. They provided exact information on how to get to this location from the airport via rail and it was easy. Clean rooms, friendly staff, great value. If you are looking for a 4 start location, this is not it, but if you are looking for a good deal, safe, clean and in a central location to Madrid, this is it.

Although the location of this hotel is excellent, particularly given its price, we got little sleep for the two nights we stayed there. We were in one of the rooms near reception overlooking the main road. Whilst the the busy street was fairly noisy this was nothing compared to the buzzer used by guests in order to enter the hotel. Throughout the night we were continually awoken by the sound, similar to an alarm clock without the button to switch it off!

All in all a great location but our stay was ruined by the terrible sleeping conditions. Would be hesitant to recommend, possibly better for groups of travellers rather than couples.

Room Tip: not near reception at all costs

Within walking distance to all the attractions. The hotel staff spoke excellent English, and were very helpful. Very clean rooms, with nice bathrooms. Quiet as well. PC available for use.

It’s a hostel, but it can be treated as something much better. They have several buidings, and we were moved to another one (comapratively to the address of the hostel). The room was wonderful: creative interior, good furniture and bathroom. We felt like at the appartment, not in a room of a hotel!
Location was very convinient, not far from the metro station and Prado museum. Quality-price ratio was very good. They had the PC for the joint use, but we did not try it.
With pleasure will come back there again.

I selected this hostel because it was one of the cheapest I could find that still had a great location. Note: Hostel Martin and Hostel Cervelo are the same hotel, just on different floors of the same building. Not sure why they have different names. We stayed on the Cervelo floor. When we checked in, the receptionist asked us if we would be willing to stay at another hotel of theirs a block away that had also been recently renovated. We said no and she did not press the issue.
The location cannot be beat. We hardly even had to use the Metro because it was so easy to walk to most places we wanted to go.
The room appeared to be recently renovated and was cleaned daily. Our bed was comfortable and the wi-fi worked in our room perfectly. The room itself and adjoining bathroom were both small, but this was only an issue when both myself and my boyfriend were trying to get ready at the same time.
We requested an exterior room so that we could have a window. There was quite a bit of street noise, garbage pickup every morning, car horns, etc, but for us this was not a concern. The interior walls are quite thin. I could hear the noises from the neighboring room and hallway quite well. It was annoying, but not ridiculous. If you are a light sleeper, I would bring earplugs or stay somewhere else.
The staff was accommodating to us. A few of the staff were very friendly/nice and others not so much.
You cannot print directly from the lobby computer. We needed our boarding passes printed for a flight and we had to e-mail them a pdf and received the print out a day later. Not that big a deal, but annoying that we had to wait and it was more of an ordeal than it should have been. We were unable to purchase train tickets online because we couldn't print them immediately.
Over all I would recommend. There are some things lacking, but for the price, I feel it is a good value.

OK place to stay, pretty good location, not much in terms of amenities. If you need a reasonbley priced place to stay that won't break the bank this is fine.
