“shabby hostel”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 January 2013

The place is at a good location, but is a very shabby hostel. Bed mattress is very squeaky. Bath room is very small even for my size (5'7"). Worst of all, we could not sleep at all because of the noise from the next doors. A baby was talking loudly every morning as early as 6:00 AM. Among all of the hotels we stayed, this is the worst.

It would still be excellent if it had cost twice the price we paid. The location is 5 min walking from Sol. The staff (which consists of a husband and wife) was totally friendly and helpful. Room was clean and comfortable enough; it even had a flat screen and a safe. Perfect for a visit to Madrid on a budget.
The only bad thing about this place was thin walls and a noise-making plumbing. Might be a problem for light-sleepers. Bring a pair of comfy earplugs as we did, and you'll be golden.

Friendly staff, small rooms but big enough. Clean. Good value for money. We seem to be next to parlement. The hotel is on the first and second floor. Did not notice an elevator. Gorgeous staircase when entering the building. I would come back here.

For $60 a night, this can't be beat. Hostal Oporto is really a hotel; all rooms have private bathrooms. Also, maidservice is provided daily, which is unheard of at that price. The location is excellent, right between Prado museum and Puerta del Sol. Additionally, it is a great location if you need to catch the airport express bus during the night, as we did. It's about a 10 minute walk from the pick-up point from the hotel. Security is very good; the street is very well lit at night and there was a policeman stationed down the street who was always at his post. Highly recommend staying here while in Madrid.

Oporto fulfills its purpose of a hostel. Low cost and no frills. It was a great location and we could walk to just about all the sites in Madrid. It was a bit difficult finding its location when we first arrived on the metro, but thankfully some locals helped us find it. Our room had a tiny bathroom with a tiny bathtub shower combo, but it got the job done. No breakfast, but some tasty cafes nearby. The staff didn't speak much English, so we had some funny encounters like trying to get them to help us turn on the fan.

I was very surprised when I saw what room we had for a bit more than 50 eur, especially in the center and close to the metro.
We took the metro pass but didn't use it as the hostal is within walking distance of the main touristic places : Prado, Pl. Puerta del Sol, Gran Via, Thyssen Museum, Museum Reina Sofia... All this can be reached within 30 min walk.
The people at the hostal is very friendly and smiley and they are always available for any question and will always give you advice for whatever you need.
Rooms are basic and clean. We had private bathroom, a big bed and a closet, no need for more. The only problem is we had a double room (couple), it was a big bed but with 2 "one-person-mattresses, maybe add a note if you want a big mattress.
I would definitely recommend this hostal.

We had an excellent time in this small hostal. It is in a great position right in the city center and within walking distance from museums and main attractions. Staff was lovely and very helpful and the room really clean. The bathroom was a bit small but the shower absolutely great. Perfect if you are staying for a few days and do not plan to spend lots of time in your room.
