I was a bit concerned after reading some of the other reviews but I don't see too much of a problem with this hostal at all. First of all you can't really complain about the location, within 2 minutes you are near Callao or Gran Via. It's a great spot to be. Yes, there are prostitutes nearby, but to be honest, anywhere you stayed in this vicinity or central Madrid there would be and it is not dangerous. (I feel safe). Second the building is undergoing renovation but this doesn't effect the hostal. The atmosphere inside is great, it seems quite new. The room is nice, with a desk sink and wardrobe, and is cleaned every day (they are very thorough about this). Also air conditioning and a flat screen tv. I am very happy to be staying here and I think it offers excellent value for money. The staff are very nice also. By the way - I expected the walls to be paper thin after another review, when I arrived they seem to be thick concrete walls and I don't hear my neighbours at all.
