“Omg the noise”
Reviewed 6 November 2013

This hostal was by far the noisiest place I have ever stayed. After reading other peoples reviews I made sure to book a room away from the street to reduce the noise from outside. Unfortunately the noise from outside was the quietest. The walls in this place are SO thin you can actually hear the people talking in the next room. We heard EVERYTHING. The shower made noise, the people in the hallway, literally everything. Woke up every hour in the night. DO NOT STAY HERE IF YOU ARE SENSITIVE TO NOISE.

The hostel itself was very clean. Room and bathroom were very small but what more can you really expect for so cheap. Woman behind the counter spoke no English and was extremely rude so try and avoid her. There is a nice man they works sometimes who speaks English.

Also this hostel is in the perfect location. Right in the middle of everything.

Overall location can't be beat but hostel leaves less to be desired.

Stayed November 2013, travelled as a couple

One of the best areas to stay in the beautiful city of Madrid (if not around Prado, etc or Plaza Mayor) The "hostal" was actually the 3 top floors of the building! One minus: the staff did not speak English, but one positive was that the decoration in the room was quite cute. Value for money: positive!

Room Tip: Try the coffee from the coffee machine in the hall: nice surprise!

This hostal is a really good option to stay when visiting Madrid. It has an excellent location near Gran Vía and at walking distance from many touristic attractions. There are a lot of very nice places to eat nearby. It's very clean and staff is really friendly. The small room (for one person) has the basics but even it's quite alright.
I definitely would come back.

Location of this hostal is unbeatable. Just on the other side of the metro station and very close to great shopping places and eateries. Got up from the metro and look for Farmacia and take that alley, walk 50 metre and u will find it.

We stayed here as a couple for 3 nights in a double size room. The room has good wifi and the reception has one pc that is free to use from 9: 30- 23: 30. u can print ur boarding pass with a nominal price from there. Rooms were clean and bathroom was small but what u expect from a budget hostal. It was clean and not a problem for me. We booked a room with shower and bathroom but used common toilet as well as we arrived early. That one was very common too.

I was not impressed about the bed cover materials as it was dusty, it was because of the kind of materials. This is the only negative thing that I found about the hostal.

They don't have 24 hrs reception, but u get ur keys for entrance and room and you are quite independent. We checked out and kept the luggage in the luggage storage room but that was not a problem at all, because u just have to ring the bell and one of the housekeeper open the door, they stay some where in the building but not in the reception.

I would recommend this hostal but if u have allergy I would recommend to carry one bed cover with you.

Room Tip: Carry a piece of bed cover or light blanket to use at night if u r allergic to dust

The staff was very nice. He gave us the keys a map and all information we needed.He speaks English .

The room has a good size the toillet is small although it was not a real problem.There is wifi in the room.
It's well located near the metro (a supermarket)and places of interestes like The Paza Mayor,Prado's museum,Cibeles Fountain. While you walk to visit Templo of Debod (a little far)you will love the architecture of Madrid.
We had a good time there.

Room Tip: The room near the owner is silent.

Reviewed 27 April 2013

The hostel is basic. The rooms are basic but confortable.
The location is the reason why it was so good reviews once is really good.
Its in one of the best parts of the city to shop and go out.
The worse part is: its a very very noisy place and the walls are thin. YOU CAN't SLEEP if you are sensitive to it and need silent to sleep you really most avoid, it will be a nightmare for you.
If you want a nice, cheap place and you can sleep no matter what, I think its a great deal.
We payed 50€/day on April 2013.

Room Tip: Ask a room in the end of the corridor, but away from the central open part of the building.

Stayed in an apartment for four people. Great central location but is also quiet at night - the hotel staff and Miguel, the manager, were friendly and helpful. For the money this place is a steal.

Only drawback was the size of the shower room - perfectly acceptable for normal size people but those larger would struggle.
