The location was excellent, right next to Puerta del Sol, subway station, shops, restaurants etc. However, the staff ruined our first day of the trip (which by 4-day trip is a real loss) by threatening us with some Spanish travel laws that according to our embassy don't apply for the citizens of other countries. We were denied our triple room and were forced to upgrade (for additional fee) to an apartment, which I don’t find fair. The building was also terribly noisy.
Brilliant location. Very clean. Security for hostel not great but room was private and door locked so prefect for us. Staff were not that helpful and there wasnt much of an atmosphere but everything we needed was there and maps were provided. A pleasant stay.
