Location is great, near La Gran Vía metro station, 5min walking and you get to la Puerta del Sol. The room was not big but it was enough for 2 person with the luggage. Breakfast is included as well as delicious coffee.

We stayed here on a long weekend trip. We chose here because it was very central, affordable and LGBT friendly (although all Madrid seems to be). The room (108) was basic but had all we needed: clean, private en suite, towels, balcony door for air, TV and hanging space for clothes. The shower was grand - hot water and ok...

Stayed here for three nights, everything went very well and was a decent value for the location. Pros: great location, breakfast decent with lots of coffee, room was clean. Cons: wifi could be unreliable, bed was rock hard. The location itself was a little loud over the weekend, but that wasn't the fault of the hotel.

You pay a fair price and get access to all the bustling areas of Madrid. The hostel is within walking distance from pretty much all the must-see sites and is totally gay-friendly. The room is not luxurious but is very clean and comfortable. An excellent deal for sure.

I have stayed several times at La Zona and it's my first choice for staying in Madrid. It's location is perfect, just off Gran Via, very close to Chueca, Retiró park is about a 15 min walk away. The rooms are basic but spotlessly clean and perfectly adequate for a short stay. Breakfast is included in the price and is...

This was our second accommodation in Hostal La Zona and we have found what we expected: A friendly welcome,a clean and basic room with a bathroom, perfect location between Gran Via and Chueka. Ideal for couple of nights in Madrid. Value for price. Highly recommended

Reasonably priced. However, the showering facilities were not very good. The water pressure and temperature changes every 30 seconds. Breakfast was complementary, but nothing more than that. Rather poor, actually. Wifi was unstable and not always working. Not able to book a twin bed, so it's a luck of the draw, if you get one as a couple. The location...

We walked straight past this hotel the first time, as the street entrance is shared with the rest of the building, once inside we were given a friendly welcome. Our room was indeed small and simple, but clean, nice firm mattress, and with some character of an older building. Great location for checking out the Madrid nightlife.

It's amazing how people give this place high marks. Yes, the hostel is located in the center, close to the subway, attractions, shops, cafes and supermarkets. Yes, you will be friendly welcomed (and where you meet different?) аnd tell about routes and attractions. But everything else .... 1.Noise from the street. The building is old and the windows are wooden...

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.

“Stayed in a room street side (calle Valverde), can be noisy for light sleeper but didn't bother us, we love beeing in the center and feel the city beat.”

“Rooms on the side street might be a little quieter, but everything echos, so you're going to hear street noise regardless.”
