The location is great, just a few meters from the Plaza del Sol. The hostel is simple but the room and the tiny bathrooms were cleaned (also at night) and the mattress is comfortable. Everything is very close (supermarket, restaurants, metro etc.), a little noisy at night because of the bars and discothekes but if you want to stay in...

There were four of us and the room we had had three beds with one of them big enough to fit two persons. There was a telly, towels were provided and the room appeared clean and tidy. Initially, the wifi was only accessible if you stayed near the reception area and that was what one of the staff said. We...

The location is great and the room was really clean, but the noise in the hostel is too much. The tiled floors don't help, neither do the 2 bars directly underneath. All in all, if you are really budget concious and a heavy sleeper, this is a good choice. Otherwise, it's worth the extra for a hotel.

I am very disappointed :(, I made a reseravation with free cancellation. Sadly I had to cancel my reservation (1 month before the arrival date!!!). You can imagine my surprise when I realised that they charched me for the cancellation that was supposed to be free: "Free cancellation up until 3 days before check-in". SIX months later, I still DON'T...

Hidden in a narrow street in the center of Madrid. You have to be very careful to trace it. Clean and warm, nice room. I would like to have a view to the beautiful street, as the a/c was covering the whole balcony door. I would like to have the breakfast included. A little noisy street at night, but still,...

Location of the hostel was excellent. I cannot complain of the service though English was not available as expected. Rooms were being renovated and clearly many rooms and bathrooms had been recently redone. Airconditioning was good although there was only one remote control shared by many rooms. The same effort that went into maintaining the floors and walls did not,...

There are Bedbugs in room n°1, i've been bitten everywhere on the first night. Moreover proprietary decide to construct a new room (lay parquet, vacuum cleaning) during two mornings (they couldn't wait the afternoon...) however the hostel is well placed and the price was cheap. If you're not afraid about insects bites, try it ;)

I stayed here for two nights with a partner in June 2012. we did find it initially difficult to find, it's just a door right beside the O Connell st irish pub. our first impression wasn't great, as it's quite small and on the 4th floor of an apartment building (don't worry, there's a lift!) but this turned out to...

Great advantage of Hostal Olivier is its location, it is just next to Plaza del Sol. Rooms are cozy but rather small. Bathroom was new although very small. Another thing is a noise from other rooms and pub under the hostal. If somebody like silence this is definitely not the right place. It is for people who likes parties. During...

It's a hostal but I traveled with enough friends to get a private room so didn't experience the room share experience. The room was ok. Not dirty but certainly not the cleanest. As this and many other lodgings in the area are right above bars and restaurants, which isn't that bad if that's what you're here to do, the noise...

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.

“Get one that isn't exposed to the street. We had no noise issues, but many of the folks that review it did as it is in downtown!”
