Cute and clean hostel in the city center for a very cheap price. I would recommend it for all. Nice room and clean bathroom. Polite owners. It is hard to find anything wrong with this place. Fantastico ostello nel centro di Madrid. Consigliatissimo per pulizia, posizione e gentilezza del personale.

3.5 stars for a hotel that is hard to get into, but once in, will please you with very clean accommodations and a great location relative to key Madrid sites and activities, including what seem to be frequent protests, riots, and sundry (pun intended) Plaza del Sol activities. As others have noted, the system for entering the Hostal before you... More

I have been staying in this hostal for years. Love the location. love the elevator. And that's about it now! I did not even see the owner this time, even though I spent 3 nights there. The room service lady was there to meet me and she was really unfriendly. She did not smile even once, even when she realized... More

If You are looking for a safe base to rest after spending days exploring the city, don't look any further. Here you'll have everything as advertised on their website. It is true that you'll be able to hear some street noise. You'll also hear other guests taking shower, passing by hallway or talking. However, I don't take this as a... More

This was my fifth time staying at this hostal. On the one hand - it's still great: central location, nice rooms. I like the fact that there are keys now and I don't have to ring the bell every time. On the other hand - the staff used to be nicer. The owner, like a reviewer here mentioned, has little... More

The hostal was clean and had a good location. It is walking distance to the three big museums,Atocha train station, Puerta del Sol, nice cafe on the street called Cafe Bar Alma.

This has been our favorite Madrid bolt-hole for several years, but last week we noticed the quality is slipping. The 24-hour "concierge" who attended the door is gone now, replaced by new sets of keys that are very difficult to use. Automated lights in the hallways plunge you into darkness at the worst possible moment. And the toilets, always noisy,... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Lavapies
Walking into this neighbourhood is like entering a different country ... except it's hard to tell which one it is. One side of Calle Lavapiés is lined with Indian restaurants, the other with kebab shops. Men in traditional African clothing convene outside their businesses for long chats, and people shout to each other across plazas and streets. Interspersed among ethnic specialty shops are independent theaters and dance studios, and two large arts and cultural centers — the beautiful Casa Encendida and the Tabacalera, a former tobacco factory — all of which attract young crowds. Along Calle Argumosa, the place to go for drinks, artists and art appreciators with piercings and dreadlocks convene in the street’s eclectic array of young, hip bars. Though some of the side streets can get a little seedy at night, Lavapiés is still the place to go for those seeking a unique blend of arts and culture in an international and funky neighbourhood.
