This hostal is not really a purpose-built hotel but several large apartments divided into a number of small rooms (a common thing in Spain I believe), split over 2 floors. It's budget/economy, no frills accommodation but the location is great: right between Plaza Mayor and Opera, in the middle of the touristy area of Madrid. If you want to be very central on low budget this is a great place, if you want more comfort you're better of elsewhere.
We stayed here for almost a week during the heat wave in Madrid (temperatures around 35 degrees all day long). Our first room was bad: overlooking a busy street so couldn't open the windows because of the noise all night long, and airco emitted some foul smell so couldn't use it. Slept very badly that night and asked to change a room next morning. Second room was better, overlooking a small courtyard so could keep the window open. But because of the heat in Madrid it was still very hot in the nights and I slept badly for the entire week. Had we come here at a different time of the year this probably wouldn't have been a problem though.
Rooms are small and a little cramped. Bed is ok but pillows very uncomfortable, bathroom challenging (tiny shower with no enclosure), but it's all clean and I'd rank it "average" to "good" for a budget hostel. WiFi is free. Service is a concierge who is very helpful but speaks almost no English. There's no restaurant or breakfast. No parking.
Note that hostal is not easy to find because no signs, just look for a gate at #10 and press a special buzzer with hotel's name written on it, then walk up the staircase to 1st floor where the reception is.
