The location of the hostel is wonderful, in the very centre of the city and with 2 tube stations very close. Such a pity that the staff is horrible, i booked a double bed and when we got there they said that the double bed rooms were all booked and that they only had a twin room; they said that we could unite the beds so that it would be a double bed, which is obviously not the same. So i suggest you to find a hostel/hotel in the zone of the Gran Via but not to choose this one!!!

Good value for our four-night-stay at the winter time! We arrived a little late (around 1:00 am) but this was not a problem for staff. The hostel, itself, was tidy and quiet, but the street made some noise from the bars - I recommend earplugs for night. It was also a bit cold, but the cleaner brought us an extra blanket when we leaved a note requesting for it. It was a shame that there were no other cooking-devices than a microwave at the hallway. We liked very much our own TV in the room!


I risked to be electrified due to a damaged plug. The owner's wife (the only there at that moment) didn't react at all at the event. Plus the room was invaded by ants. It was the noisiest owner's family ever: wasn't able to take a nap: they were screaming (instead of talking) all the time and when the owner family was cooking, the entire place was loaded of smell..

Dear Customer, I cant understand your bad opinion about the incident from the outlet, you were using an charger for your phone no approved for the European Community , your charger made a short circuit and burned, despite his mistake we decided give you like gift a new ORIGINAL charger for your mobile. Our outlet was not the cause. On the other hand, that week we had more rooms available, you did not tell us anything to change the room by noises. Once again my sincere apologies. Manager.


Overall hostel is good and value for money.


Good things: LOCATION - almost on the Gran Via main street, close to everything, good price for double bed room for Madrid standards Bad things: VERY LOUD - there is a lot of bars in the street, also in the hostel there was one kid who made a noise, ROOM - very strange, shower inside and sink without hot water, beds are not so comfortable, STAFF - we saw only one guy was friendly but with very bad english


The staffs were really attentive and disponible, the place was clean and with everything we needed. The location is perfect. It was an awesome stay!
