The location is amazing (very close to gran via metro station) and the rooms were clean, however the only window we got was to the hallway so it felt claustrophobic at times and unbearably hot with no AC. Also, my friend had her money and watch stolen and the only people to have gone in the room while we were gone was the cleaner.. So USE THE LOCKERS! Not safe and the staff were quite unfriendly and didn't help the situation and they were never at the desk. Won't be returning.

I am sorry that your expectations in Madrid were not the appropriate, but what you can not allow is that we unjustly accused of robbery in your room, first because you not wanted daily cleaning in your room and secondly you violated our rules sleeping with people not hosted in our hostel. Manager .


Great location and good facilities, staff is also very helpful


Pro's: Very nice and helpful staff. 2 minutes to Gran Via metro station - perfect. Cable TV - nice Mini-refrigerator and a sink in room - comfortable. A balcony to have a cofee or a cigarette - lovely. Con's: Found none. Sure worth it's price, definetely gonna stay there the next time i visit Madrid.

Clean, quiet, and well located. More of a hotel than a hostal. Great for people who cherish their privacy. Given the competition, this is a great place to stay.
