“Don't stay here if you have the chance”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2007

This place is not as advertised on its website. It is not really a hostel, it appears to be more a hotel that downgraded into a hostel in order to be able to fit more beds.

Staff was rude and unfriendly. The rooms were run down with mismatched sheets and the bunk beds creaked like there was no tomorrow. There were not enough showers (only 2 for all the women on my floor). The bathrooms were not clean and the facilities were really crummy. The breakfast is not worth mentioning. There is no internet access. The lockers are way to small to store anything but a passport and some document ( I could not fit my laptop). You have to pay extra for the lockers as well.
The positive things about it: 1) cheap, and 2) close to the Banco De Espana which is a good location for seeing things like the Prado Museum. Other than that, stay somewhere else. I recommend Cat;s hostel, Canizares street.

The site for this hostal portrays a seemingly good hostal but beware! The location was fabulous it was a shame that I had no idea of where it was located, there were no maps on the info desk just a mess of postcards and bits and pieces not really related to travel in Madrid.I arrived very late, and very tired and requested a towel and asked about the booking, the person who gave me the key was extremely rude, no info about where to eat, no info about nearest internet for the morning- if u have your own computer the hostal is hotwired but if you dont-----. Don't ask alberto! He will yell at you and imitate your accent and get it wrong anyway. Next morning other young people who were staying there said they were as disgusted as I was. I stayed 2 nights and the second night was worse, when I arrived back at 11.00pm I was locked out of both the bathroom and the kitchen, as I left early the next morning 7.00am it was bad luck, no shower, toilet or kitchen. Go figure! Again I spoke to another young man from USA and he was also disappointed with the Hostal. I have stayed in many in differant countries and this would have to be up there with the worst.
This hostal was also one of the more expensive ones in Madrid and other enquiries have led me to believe that this is the exception rather than the rule for Madrid.
