Liked: The owner is very helpful and serious. The place is a bit older as is the furniture, but it is very clean and comfortable. The price is probably unbeatable for this location direction in the center.

Disliked: Its a bit loud with open windows, but not above the standard Madrid noise ;) The general advice for Spain travelers are ear plugs at night.

Liked: The location was perfect! It was so easy to get around Madrid on foot. There was no need to get a metro pass. Everything was within walking distance. The city of Madrid itself is loud, but the room is quite enough to sleep in. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Also, the overall hostel was very clean and tidy.

Disliked: Nothing.

Liked: Good place to stay and get a cheap private room. Gustavo was very friendly & helpful and I had no issues. Centrally located, right next to Callao and Gran Via. Very easy to get around via metro. Good place to relax if you're a bit tired of socializing at backpacker hostels all the time.

Disliked: Nothing. Enjoyed my stay here.

Liked: Surprisingly quiet given the location next to the Gran Via, friendly helpful staff recommended places to go to eat, and happy to let us leave our luggage while we went sightseeing after checking out.

Disliked: Had problems finding it at first, as the nameplate is quite low-key! Room decor was a little dated maybe, but nevertheless perfectly adequate, clean and comfortable.
