Liked: Location, cleanness is perfect

Disliked: unfortunately the room I was staying in was so cold that I became ill and despite normally I was going to stay for 2 days, I had to check out 1 night earlier. Despite location, cleanness and attitude of the staff is well, heating is a problem in the rooms. At least in my room.

Liked: The staff is very helpful and friendly, breakfast included and they allowed us to use another bathroom in the room next to our dorm as our en suite bathroom was out of service.

Disliked: Our dorm had a glass door sized of half of the wall leading to the street that couldn't be locked at all and there was a gap between the wall and the door itself where the wind was blowing into the room so we literary slept in the street. It was freezing in the room and everybody got a cold. The Internet didn't work properly at all so we (girls who lived with me) were sitting in the room trying to load pages several times. The bedding is already old and need to be renewed. May be the rest of the rooms are better and warmer but the dorm was really small and cold with only 2 working sockets for 5 people.

Liked: Great location if you like a party. Right in middle of old town.

Disliked: Lack of power outlets. Shower and bathtub below par. Lack of social facilities. No place to sit in room except on bed. Kitchen closes at 11 so have to sit on floor in room to surf internet or lay in bed - no chair or table anywhere.

Liked: Very clean, staff are ok Free wifi

Disliked: The balcony and kitchen is locked from 11pm! That's when Madrid wakes up. Very noisy family living downstairs, talking loudly, cooking, cleaning way past midnight. You have to ring the doorbell every time to enter. If your room is near the reception, then you hear all the bell, noise, people talking all night. Small lockers, some doesn't work. Low bunkbeds No individual power sockets for charging.

Liked: The staff guy from canarias was really helpful and friendly. It's really just a hostel designed to be a place to crash, rather than a place to hang out. There is a terrace though, which is pretty cool.

Disliked: The beds were super close together and you could hear all the noise from the fieston in the streets. The sign on the door is tiny.

Liked: Really enjoyed my two days in Madrid. Staff at the hostel were really kind, friendly and helpful. Hostel itself was ideally located... close to all the museums, restaurants and bars. If you didn´t want to go out, could just hang out on the balcony, take the evening sun with a beer and a conversation to other backpackers. Very relaxed and absolutely no complaints. All in all real value for money.

Liked: Perfect location, very clean, wonderful staff, great amenities and low price.I was surprised at how the staff let us check out a bit after 10 and how they let us hang out for two hours while we waited for our bus. I am beyond satisfied. I would definitely recommend Barbieri Hostel Sol to anyone visiting Madrid.
