This was my first hostel stay in my life, and my expectations were blown away. Not only was this hostel affordable, but at a very good location in Madrid city center. The staff were also very friendly, and spoke English which is a huge thumbs up as it helped a lot! The area is very safe, and very quite even...

If you understand and speak Spanish very well, What problem is there that I do not speak English?

Arriving in Madrid on a hurry mood, we booked and the guy who answered us promised us to be present when we will arrive. But we had then to wait almost 30 min before he arrived and did not even excuse himself. Then his first focus was that we should pay before. In the domain of services, guests after more...

I would highly recommend this place! It's not luxurious but it is comfortable, clean and nicely decorated. The location is great, very close walking distance to lots of great restaurants and bars and 3 metro lines all very close. Only criticism I have is that the street it very noisy at night.

It may well have been that we got the worst room in the place, but I'm struggling to recommend Hostel Foster. The location is great, the bed comfortable, it was reasonably clean. However we were beside a building site where it sounded like they were pumping concrete at 6am, whatever they were doing, I would challenge anyone to sleep alongside!...

The staff is very nice and helpful. They upgraded us to a small flat on the top floor. It was quite acceptable and clean. Might need a small do over. The location is perfect to visit Madrid. We walked almost everywhere. Although it's central it's in a quiet street. Overall good experience. Nothing exceptional. Just the internet was bad. It...

This hotel is very well located. I had a Single room and the staff told me before that it is tiny. It was tiny but clean. The staff was very helpful and kind. The walls are thin and you can hear the neighbours snooring. Anyways overall it was a good value for money. Would probably not go with a family.

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
