The hostel is located in a building housing offices, apartments, hotel and other.
The room is very clean.
The hostel is ideally located at 20m from the metro and in the city center.
Excellent value for money in the city center
Location is really good and room was spacious.
Staff don't speak much English - depends who is there (wasn't a problem for us) Odd siutation in the evening to ring bell outside then be escorted (ini lift) and let into the hostal
Location of this hostal is perfect - on Gran Via, near to the metro station (Gran Via), so you can reach everything easily.

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.
