The management staff were very friendly, even motherly. I felt I was at home, greeted by my mother. Thank you, so much for everything Adoracion "Dory" Alvaro. I arrived at 12:45 midnight and Dory was there to greet me. I was so embarrassed because I could not send her an email as to the train ticket I bought, the last trip from Barcelona to Madrid, as the wifi in the lodging I had in Barcelona, where I attended a conference, was not functioning.

We had a great stay at the Alvaro Residencia. It was very clean and the room was large. The room cleaned and we were surprised to find our bed made on the first day! The occasion was good, about a five minute walk to the Plaza Mayor and many restaurants. We would definitely recommend staying here.

Lovely lady who runs the place. Clean facilities with full kitchen and fridge/cupboard space. Excellent wifi and a good location just a 5 minute walk from the centre of Madrid. Would stay again

Great hostel! The location is really excellent. There's a fully equipped kitchen you can freely use. Rooms are very nice and clean. The only problem was that the staff did not really know English, so you have to find someone to translate it. They are lovely people and easy to communicate about basic issues despite of the language barrier, but for more complex questions about the city, they cannot guide you. But it's not a reason not to choose the hostel. Trust it for a problem-free experince.

The rooms are private so you get more of a hotel feel than a hostel feel. However, the woman running the place is extremely kind and accommodating. The location is also great. 5 minute walk to Puerta del Sol or Plaza Mayor. 30 second walk to subway.

This place really felt like more than a hostel. Nice location and quiet interior. Still the opportunity to meet other travellers in the kitchen. All is provided and very friendly staff. Recommended!

The Alvaro Residencia is a large apartment with many rooms. We were greeted with a big smile by the friendly lady that runs the place. She also lives in the apartment so you always have her there to ask questions. She was very helpful, although her english is not the greatest but it was not an issue. Our room was big and had two great fans to cool us down in the evening. The kitchen was well equipped and plenty of designated fridge/pantry space for each room. We recommend this accommodation!!!

Great hostel to stay in if you want some peace and quiet. Located close to Tirso de Molina, the hostel is close to the major tourist attractions as well as some great tapas bars. The bed was comfortable, the bathrooms cleaned and supplied well, and the kitchen fully-equipped. We would definitely consider staying in this hostel again should we make another trip back to Madrid!

Friendly hosts who settled us in quickly and gave us advice for food and places of interesr. The hostel feels very homely with a full-functioning kitchen, refridgerators and a computer. Room was spacious and comfortable despite the summer heat. Great location right next to a metro station. Smooth, worry-free check-in/check-out process. Definetely would like to return.

This hostel was very centrally located to all the major sites and nightlife, but was not wildly busy or loud which was nice. The residence was very clean and we actually had our rooms turned down daily. Staff was extremely friendly and laid back. There were full amenities and we had no issues sharing the bathrooms with other guests. Very good value!!

Good value for the money and great location. Staff was unavailable a lot of the time, but helpful. Kitchen facilities were nice, rooms lovely, bathrooms could be cleaner but uninterrupted hot water was great. Not much of a common area for meeting people, but a nice, quiet place to stay. Good deal on the private rooms as well.

Really great if you want that homely vibe, close to the centre of town and run by a very lovely and helpful lady. It is basic but didn't give off a hotel hostel.

It's in a woman's apartment so just be prepared for that.

Great location with a metro 2 mins walking and some main attractions pretty close to the hostel. Bathrooms were cleaned constantly and they were always in great conditions. The staff was friendly!

This hostel felt more like a hotel! It was beautiful, so clean (and the beds were made in the day) the staff are lovely and really helpful. The kitchen/bathroom facilities are great, and you can walk to most of the main attractions (palace, museums, el retiro etc). She even provided towels for us! Best hostel I've stayed in.

Great place to stay! Although it only has rooms for 2 people, one of the most friendly staff I've ever worked with. Highly, highly recommended. Great location, great staff, nothing negative to report.
