The hostel was ok, ensuite bathroom was definitly the big advantage. Although instead of aircondition there was only a fan and the temprature was quite high (it was August) but acceptable. The staff was very helpful and kind, one guy on the reception speaks good English. The bigest pros is location - it is really perfect - like 10 metere from metro and city center in walking distance, planty of cafe's and restaurants arount - really nice.


It was little tricky to find the hostel, but had big room with air con which was fantastic for Madrid summer weather.


Great hostel but there is not a good place to meet other travelers . No common area, no kitchen!


the house owner is very nice. But the bed sheet and the quilt smell not so good. others are very good.


I found if very clean and quiet. The staff spoke only Spanish but they were still pleasant trying to communicate with them in English. If you want to get away from the noise and businessof some hostels this could be the right place for you. It is very easy to get to most of the attractions in Madrid.


This is in a perfect location! Everything is easy to walk to and it's right near a metro station. They don't restock the toilet paper very often though, and the staff doesn't speak a lot of English. Not too expensive and a great spot- stay here!
