“Excellent value for money”
Reviewed 3 December 2011

I stayed for 3 nights in November, and thought this was an excellent place to stay for the price. The room was kept spotlessly clean, and all the normal facilities (for a cheap room) were provided eg towels, shampoo, safe box, coat hangers etc. No problem with noise this time, as the cooler temperatures meant I was able to keep the windows closed at night. I suspect noise may be an issue in summer (street noise) although there was an air con box so perhaps you could still keep windows closed. I must admit to being a little nervous booking the place online, but they had my details when I arrived, so no problem. A great area too, and far enough away from the Sol area, where you can find pickpockets and higher prices. Lots of bars, cinemas, restaurants, shops etc in the immediate vicinity - follow Calle Fuencarral away from the centre. If I do visit Madrid again, I may well choose this place.

Hotel is located off a busy walkway with shopping and cafes, and despite the location my room was dead silent which was nice. The bathroom appeared to be brand new, with new tiles on the floor and walls, and this was a pleasant surprise. Room was clean, the quilt on the bed was old though. Very small, 5th floor hostal (but more like a hotel) owned by a very nice couple. They really dont speak English at all but I got by with my broken Spanish. Free internet worked perfectly. Room was cleaned each day. I love this location, I walked everywhere. The room includes a big window, a closet with a safe (1euro), a desk, bed, TV, remote controlled AC and bathroom. I would recommend this place and actually I am staying here again in a few weeks.

The place is spotlessly clean and spacious. Towels and sheets are changed everyday.
Location is great! 2 mins walk from Tribunal metro stn, along fuencarral street where you can shop and eat.
It's a walkable distance from Gran Via and Sol too!
The old couple who run the joint are nice and friendly although they won't speak more than two words of english.
Only bad thing was that the lift was out of order the whole time we were there and the place is on the 4th floor. *pant pant*

Nice, small, centraly located hostal in Madrid. I do allways stay in this hostal when visiting Madrid. The stuff is friendly and the rooms are clean. In my opinion it is a great value for the money. Hostal is not far from the metro station and the city center is easy accesible by foot.

The Hostal Gallardo offers a comfortable, clean and friendly environment in a nice and safe neighborhood. The hostal is located in a building with several hostals, on the fourth floor (fifth for Americans). There is a small elevator in the building. The staff is helpful and friendly and the room is clean with a great bathroom and shower. The bed is comfortable. My room had a nice view of the street and a beautiful church across the street. The neighborhood offers many dining options, the Metro station is one block away, and it is a short walk to the Gran Via. The one downside is thin walls and occasional noise from adjacent rooms. Other than that, I fully enjoyed my stay and would recommend this hostal to budget travelers.

Great location, simple but nice. Value for money. Rooms not very big but with little balcony. Wifi did not function. Personal very friendly and helpful. Wall a bit thin but normal for this price range.

Since it is a hostal, do not expect much. No room service, no breakfast. But instead you have very nice staff, friendly and helpful. The hostal is very close to the metro station TRIBUNAL (actually it is across the street) and it is clean.
