The two receptionists that I talked with during my two days stay were very gentle and helpfull. The hostel is 50 (or so) meters away from the main street "Gran Via" and very close to the subway but it's very calm. Not fancy, small rooms and old furniture but extremely clean. Both bathrooms were always clean (and i mean always). 70 euros total, two persons, two nights, good value for money. If I come back i will choose this hostel again

So this hostel is great for cleanliness and was relatively quiet. I even got fresh towels each day. But don't stay here if you're looking to meet other hostel travelers, cause theres no common area or free brochures. Also my room had a window that opened to the hallway and it was incredibly hot in there. Probably not bad in the winter...but in 34 degree madrid it was brutal.

The hostel is gorgeous! The rooms were full of beautiful, dark-wood furniture. The staff were very friendly, and one spoke english very well. The bathrooms were clean and well-kept. The kitchen was very basic, you couldn't cook in there if you wanted to but you can heat up left-overs in the microwave (so don't plan on cooking!!). There is a bar right outside of the hostel that is really loud on weekends, but you can deal with it if you are used to noise. Overall, I really enjoyed it!

Well, this place is well located, and that's all. Well, it is also clean and safe. But staff will give you no information, no assistance, not even a smile. They say they have A/C, but just when they think its hot enough, otherwise it will be denied to you. * Please note that this place is located in front of a really NOISY bar, so, you will not be able to sleep until 6:00am, when party is ending * This is not a bad option, but you may find something better for sure.

We stayed here during our overnight layovers to and from Morocco. It's very clean and convenient, just off Gran Via and an easy walk to Puerta del Sol, restaurants, and cafes.

This is cheap place near the city center. It is located right in front of a nightclub, so very noisy and our window did not close properly. Furthermore, we could no regulate the heating, so we had to leave the window open anyway. Beds were really short (170cm approx). I would not recommend this place.

Poor shower. Host not really friendly and the surrounding streets are messy. Not recommend for single girl stay there.

The streets around us are not a disaster neither have danger to anyone .We are just in the center of Madrid and especially the weekends we have many people in the streets celebrating .
