I stayed in this hostal just one night in a family room. When I read the review I thought it would be terrible, but actually it wasn't that bad. The rooms are clean, the bathroom is small but the shower has warm water and they provide towels and cutlery. There's no longer breakfast service and the staff is friendly and...

The romm was very cold, stairs terrible, nobody at the reception, the man and the woman, probably the owners, were very stupid and racists! It was a terrible experience and I really doesnt recomend to anyone! RACISTS! Its saids also Bed And Breakfast, but it was totally fake. There was no breakfast!

Entrance was horrible , stairs Slippery and dangerous and lift nowhere to be found. No reception , no paperwork to fill in. Room was tiny and when we checked in fridge was leaking all over the floor. Toilet door would close properly as the furniture with the microwave was blocking it. Two small towels left on the room. There is...

I should've read other reviews before I book this hostel. I went there with my family and didn't know there was no elevator. I was the only man and can lift heavy luggages from the base to the hostel. Beside this, everything was great. Room was clean and nice. But I will never book this hostel again.

1 night stay would be tolerable as it's located in central madrid, close to everything. But it's in a pretty dodgy suburb, with dodgy entry, no lift & very run down stairs. Room clean enough. When we showered, water leaked into the bedroom, huge puddle. Staff doesnt speak a word of english, so very difficult in a city which we've...

I stayed in hostal oxum for a week and i can tell how negative this experience was for me and my girlfriend. Don't trust website photos, they aren't realistic and you can't understand how small the rooms are! The entrance was horrible and we had to go upstairs without lift and the hostal's at the third floor! The staff isn't...

The hostel is very uncomfortable! The pictures on the homepage do not represent the real condition of the rooms. Breakfast only exists of toast bread with ketchup and a milk with juice - ihhhhh! No coffee... The entry was the most terrible thing of the hostel! No workable air conditioning in the room which means we had to leave the...

Coming down a busy and vibrant street, you're met with big steel gates and you have to ring the intercom for access. Go through the gates and you will feel terrified, until being met by a nice lady who indicated the stairs to us. We though they were clean and well lit, despite being well worn. After we made it...

Upon arrival to hostal oxum the entrance makes you fear the worst. Up the rickety wooden staircase and through the door a modern and nicely decorated hostal awaits. Initially the wait to be checked in was off putting and the faulty air conditioning made the room rather warm but the attentive and friendly service by the two staff despite not...

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.
