"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…"

14 March 2011 Luisa would recommend this property

Liked: Very close to the center (Plaza Mayor). We booked a private twin but got a three bed room instead, that was a bit annoying. There were three bathrooms, all clean and nice. TV didn't work. Our room was a bit noisy as it was right in front of the reception area and we would hear people talking and coming in during the night.

Disliked: No common area.

Liked: the location is perfect, right in the centre oppostie a fabulous food market. 5 minute walk to the main square and lots of things happening. Supermarket a few doors down.

Disliked: I really liked the hostel, however if you're looking for a fun party vibe this isn't for you. The hostel's quiet and when I was there it was filled with older couples and quieter individuals. So its perfect if you want a good nights sleep. The staff make sure people are quiet and let others sleep which is great.

Liked: Had a great 4 person suite with a balcony (shared bathroom) for 17euro/night. Very clean and the location is unbeatable.

Disliked: The staff was very strict with quiet hours even though everyone in the hostel for the weekend was under 25 and partying for Carnaval. However, we were just told to move it to the street.

Liked: Hostel was clean and tidy, a comfortable place to stay for a night or two.

Disliked: The walls were very thin and you could hear every move that somebody else makes - not so good when people decide to sing patriotic drinking songs at 4 in the morning. There were also no kitchen facilities and no computer to access the internet (although wifi is available). This is made clear in the hostel description, however. Also, the hostel is quite difficult to get to from the airport via public transport as you have to catch 3 trains on 3 different lines.

Liked: free wifi, great location (near plaza mayor, near metro station Sol, near supermarket). the bathrooms are clean although they were shared.

Disliked: it is quite noisy in the midnight and early morning because it is located exactly behind the market (mercado de san miguel).

12 January 2011

Liked: Very clean

Disliked: Expensive. Very loud in the morning (street noises, even through closed windows). No kitchen. Tiny place with only a handful of rooms so bathroom noises and doors closing traveled to sleeping rooms. Also, we got stuck on a train and called to let them know we would be late--we arrived in the a.m. (too late to sleep for the night) and they were not flexible about it--making us pay for a night we spent sitting up on a train because we did not give 48 hours notice....

Liked: good location, middle of the city centre

Liked: The property is right next to Mercado de San Miguel, which has the best food deals in Madrid. Great wifi speeds.

Disliked: Restrooms could've been a little bit cleaner and more upgraded. A common area would've been nice to mingle with other travelers, but the facility lacked one.
