Location is great for shopping and getting around the centre of Madrid. But the beds are short and the noise of traffic in Gran Via makes sleeping quite impossible. The rooms are what you can expect for the prize, but don't expect a lot. I wouldn't take my wife to this hostal. For my purposes however this two nights stay...

Location of this hostal is very good, if you are interested in shopping and walking around the center of Madrid. However, sleeping is quite difficult, because the beds are a little short and the traffic in Gran Via is very audible all night long. I wouldn't dare to take my wife over to this hostal... ;) Anyway, for it's price...

This hostel is in the perfect location to explore Madrid!!!! BUT....... Holey Moley, it is noisy!!!! Even with all the shutters, windows, and curtains closed, it still sounded like Madrid nightlife was happening right on the balcony! AND, it wasn't very clean! One of the beds in our room was actually broken, the bedspread was ripped, and it was dusty!...

I asked them to just turn it off if they can't put it on a cold , they could'nt. Machine was broken and they needed technical support for that. We couldn't sleep at...

The worst experience I have ever had in my 25 years of traveling. Their website is misleading and so is information listed on other booking sites. 1. Bedding is listed as "Memory foam". We had a Quadruple family room and all 3 beds in the room had spring mattresses that were old and sunk in so that the springs poked...

The bathroom was not very good. The toilet lid was loose, it was old, a bit dirty, the door was especially dirty. Rooms are pretty old. There is just one big light in the ceiling and no lights by the beds. We booked a whole room where there was room for 8 persons. Finally we were only 6 and I...

The Hostal is situated in front of the Subway/Metro station Callao. Right in the center of Madrid. Shops, bars, restaurants are nearby and there is plenty of choice. The hotel is clean and the staff is kind. There is no luxury, but nobody can ask for that. Tv and clean bathroom with swower. Situated near transports, monuments and interesting places...

I liked hostal very much. perfect location, very comfortable and clean rooms. Callao metro station is just in front of hostal. very welcoming stuff. Young owner did everything to service you well. our room had magnificent view to Gran Via. The price is attractively low. I advise everyone to visit this hostal.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
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.
