Had a 5 night stay there for our new year's vacations. The room is a bit small, but that was more or less expected. It was clean and warm, and the bathroom was clean and adequate. The bad part was the noise from the Gran Via, which at this time of the year is even louder because of the vacations...

Hostal had to be reached using smelly, dirty outside elevator. Desk area, however, clean, but laundered sheets and towels hanging in stairwell gave off musty oder. Receptionist didn't speak English. Room clean, but hardly large enough to move around and it had a close, musty smell. I am allergic to mold and mildew so asked how to work the advertised...

Very well located, the rooms are ok, sometimes the bathroom is a bit smelly and you can hear everything that’s going on, on the other rooms. The staff is not very helpful, the breakfast is really bad, is not worthy, you have several coffees in the area. Is ok to stay for 1 or 2 days. Madrid is a beautiful...

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
