Liked: We had a really nice stay. The staff is really nice and helpfull, especially that we were with 9-month old son for a whole week. They even changed our room for bigger because of that! :) The location is perfect, right next to Gran Via in the centre of Madrid. I recommend it of course!

Liked: I stayed here for nearly two weeks in December and loved it. The staff are terrific, the place is super clean (they did the room every day!), it is quiet, the location is perfect (right near two subway stops just off of Gran Via), close to absolutely everything. There was always hot water and heat. All rooms have their own showers and sink, fridge and t.v. There is an elevator which is handy and a grocery store around the corner. I'm not sure why they call it a hostal, it's more of a two star hotel. The street outside is colorful, the hookers (which NEVER bothered me or anyone) actually helped me up the stairs with my luggage and wouldn't accept a tip! They waved hello each morning. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat....

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Quiet and clean; like a hotel of 40 years ago. Nice to have an elevator; helpful staff; shower and sink in the room plus large, nice shared bathroom. Surprisingly quiet for such a central location! Really close to the metro. Good directions given in email from hostel!

Disliked: Didn't see any kitchen, but I may have just missed it. More like a small hotel than a youth hostel.
