Perfect location. Rooms are clean. Nice staff. 1 night became 2 nights at this hostal as we liked Madrid so much. It takes just a couple of minutes walking to Puerta del sol, shops, restaurant and an excellent nightlife.

This room is well-located close to Puerta del Sol, and walking distance from sights and public transportation. It is very basic -- no air conditioning, thin walls, and wi-fi that only worked intermittently. However, it was clean, the beds were comfortable, and there was no distracting street noise.

This hostel was fine for our quick overnight in Madrid before heading to the airport. Rooms are clean and simple, and good value for the price. Great location just blocks from the main plazas and restaurants of Madrid. Wifi is basically non-existent (we could't get it to work at all) and there's no air conditioning. Entry into the building leaves... More

Hostal Principado is a very simple hostal extremely well located, close to Sol, Gran Via and Museum Thyssen-Bornemisza. This is a two star and very cost effective, and my partner and I actually thought that we got more than we expected by the rate we paid. Although the room was very basic and the bathroom very small, both were extremely... More

This is a clean, well run hostel in a very safe location. For the absolute base rate of 25 EUR you get a simple but clean room with visually acceptable bed sheets (no horrible dark patterns and furry old fabric), small flat screen TV, large window that can be opened to an internal courtyard.

I was in Madrid for 5 weeks, and stayed in 2 rooms here. I was a longer stay during the off season, so I emailed ahead to see if they'd make me a deal, and I did get a nice discounted rate, which was awesome!

Staying in Paseo del Prado

Neighbourhood Profile
Paseo del Prado
The area around the elegant Paseo del Prado boulevard is much-visited by both locals and tourists. The world-famous Prado, the Reina Sofia, and the Thyssen-Bornemisza museums form a triangle of art and culture that spans this grand and beautiful avenue. On weekdays, the Prado Museum opens its doors for free after-work hours, drawing a diverse and excited queue of art lovers that wraps around the block. Palacio de Cibeles and Círculo de Bellas Artes cultural centers are other artsy hangouts to check out, with rooftop bars that provide impressive views of the city. While the Paseo del Prado and its roundabouts form a busy throughway in Madrid, a broad green pedestrian park in the middle is a calm and gorgeous place for a relaxing stroll. Just east of the museums, the Retiro Park is always a confluence of activity as families and friends of all ages take to the pretty paths and lawns to stretch their legs or to have a picnic.
