"The hostel has a great location in the heart of Old Madrid. It's just across the Mercado de San Miguel, which is an ideal place to go for breakfast or a snack. The hostel itself is very clean and well-equipped, and the…"

Liked: Location could not have been better. Right in the middle of the action, with Plaza Mayor, Sol, Palace, Rastro just a short walk. Tons of bars and restaurants around. Room was very spacious, modern, and clean with small balcony. There were many private bathrooms with showers in the hall, so rarely ever a wait. Great value.

Disliked: There was no common space or kitchen. However, there is a small supermarket directly next door, so food was always available. A lot of activity outside til the early hours of the morning, so a family with young kids would probably not like this location.

Liked: Location is probably THE BEST one could find in Madrid for such an affordable price. Walking distance from everywhere: tourist attractions, nightlife, metro, supermarket... Makes visiting the city a lot easier. 24-hour service provided by very nice staff and wi-fi access makes it even better. Check-in is at noon but if the room is ready, you can have an early check-in, free of further charge, like us. Gladly surprised that there where three bathrooms in a single aisle for people that chose to share a bathroom. We were expecting having to wake up early or waiting in line to take a bath, but not what happened at all. Never had to wait a minute :). Now, to be honest, rooms without a balcony are very, very small and there's no elevator, so you'll climb a few stairs carrying your bags. That's just advice for picky people. Whatever somebody may dislike about this place is well compensated for the awesome location. We were very happy with our experience there and, as a matter of fact, since our flight to L.A. leaves from Madrid and we'll have to spend one more night there after a month traveling, we canceled a reservation in another hotel, so we can stay there again that last night!

Disliked: Not that we disliked as something it would make us not choosing this place again, but showers are really really small and it's hard to take a bath without splashing the whole bathroom. But that's just a minor detail.

Liked: great location, can be a little loud but you are just in the center, next to plaza mayor. Clean, we booked twin bedroom, but they give us for three people and with balcon with view on the mercado san miguel.

Disliked: Shared facilities, but it is not a problem, 3 bathrooms (unfortunately quite small) for 8 rooms. At night can be really loud. It is hard to sleep with open window.

Liked: Very good location. Very cheap. Good beds. Working showers. Wifi (password posted in the hallway). Supermarkets practically next door.

Disliked: No seperate toilets or sinks, so long wait for either when others are showering, esp in the morning. No bins in the room. Met only one person of staff who spoke English. No instructions anywhere in English. No kitchen.

Liked: It was very clean and comfortable. There were three shared bathrooms, all pleasant. There was a balcony overlooking the street in our triple room. Location was great, a bit hard to find, but it was right next to the Mercado de San Miguel, where you can eat to your heart's content, and the Plaza Mayor.

Disliked: Directions given were not sufficiently clear.

Liked: Perfect location in the heart of Madrid. Cheap. Room very small but it can survive. Worth a recommendation. In the immediate vicinity many pubs and 3-4 self service supermarkets. The staff could speak English better but it is a general problem in Spain.

Disliked: Double room little to small.

Liked: This hostel is located on the 2nd floor of an apartment building in Madrid, just outside the city center (Plaza del Sol). It's very modern and everything is new. The bathrooms are lovely (blue tile and very spacious) and everything was clean. Our rooms looked out onto the market and street below and there were small balconies you could step out onto. The beds were VERY comfortable (even more comfortable than my bed at home!). We loved the two rooms we stayed in: a private triple and a private twin for two people. The wifi worked great. Tip: When you arrive at the building, ring the box at the top reading "Casa de la Plaza," not the little old lady in the apartment next door :)

Disliked: No complaints here!

Liked: The location is excellent. Literally minutes from many of the major sights/areas. The building as a whole was lovely; the rooms however were a little small. This was not a problem however and there were ample shower/toilet rooms all to a good standard.

Disliked: There wasn't really anywhere to 'hang out' and/or meet others.

Liked: This hostel is a great value. The rooms are small but cozy, and modern, if a bit lacking in charm. The location can't be beat though, located right next to the Plaza Mayor, and just a few hundred meters away from the Opera metro station, all of Madrid is at your fingertips. Also, the showers are hot and powerful, there is fast wifi, and a TV in the private room (if that's your thing); always a plus.

Disliked: The staff was a little brusque, although certainly polite enough. Also, no food anywhere on the premises. And, the place doesn't have much character or social spaces. It's good for sleeping and that's about it.
