The location is excellent (the station Callao is across the street) and generally the distance to different places is smaller than you may expect. Staff is friendly and available on and on.
Rooms are well-equipped and very clean. You have all you need - comfy beds, cupboards and so on. What's most important, especially when the weather is not good, there are radiators in the rooms which were still working in April. The hostal has available computers with internet access and free wi-fi in rooms. It's a great place when you're looking for a place to stay for a couple of nigts.

Located right next to metro station and on Gran Via. Room clean but very basic. Small room with most beds almost pushed together.

The Hostal Valencia is located near of the center. Its bedroom is clean but without luxury. It is perfect if you want to enjoy Madrid by a low cost.

The hotel is centrally located (metro callao is just across the street). The room is basic (but we only used the room to sleep and have a shower). We requested a room facing the main street (gran via) but was warned beforehand that it could get noisy at night (we wanted the view more than the noise). They do have rooms towards the back which i assume would be quieter). The staff are all friendly and speak english. I would go back and stay in this hostal again.

The photos on the site make this hostal seem much better than what it is in reality: mediocre. The location is conveniently superb (spot on Gran Via - Callao), as there isn't any reason to stay in the room, really, they're just bed against walls, which actually nails its purpose. What was not so nice was the persistent sickening smell of food during the entire day at the lobby; luckily nothing found its way to the rooms. These were overly simple, but the bathrooms were spacious and clean! The doors weren't too think so steps could be heard from the other side, but rarely was there movement in the night. There was free internet, which is a major bonus.
Good if you're looking for a cheap place to just sleep for a few day and want to be over the Gran Via.

This hostal is run by friendly staff, although on the 5th floor there is a lift. We travelled as a group of 5 mature ladies, and both rooms were perfectly acceptable, and extremely clean. Reception staff spoke English and Salvatore was most informative with good recommendations for dinner. As this is right on the main street ( a six lane road) it is advisable to ask for a room at the back, if you are an early bedder. We found everywhere within reasonable walking distance, but I recommend the bus trip for its commentary.
Watch out for pickpockets on the Metro although we knew about this problem we were almost robbed on our way from the airport (keep your hand on your valuables especially if there is a distraction)
