Clean and quiet place next to Sol station, right in the centre of Madrid near sights, shops and restaurants . Friendly staff with someone on reception 24 hours a day to let you in so security is excellent. Room was always clean and came with a decent sized bathroom, TV and good aircon. Would definitely stay again.


would be good if the personal could improve their English proficiency to communicate more easily with foreign guest who don't speak Spanish

A great little place to stay at. The Pretoria is definetely not a party hostel, but it is a pretty inexpensive way to be at the best location in Madrid. The room we stayed was very clean, the bed was comfortable and it was very silent at night. I strongly recommend you to book the ensuite rooms. Montserrat was an extremely helpful lady (the only staff member we got to meet), but non-spanish speakers might have a bit of a hard time. Othe than that, it was perfect for our purposes.
