Jason Elward thinks…

"The location was brilliant, right in the centre of the city; so much so that a huge Apple store was at the bottom of the street."

Liked: The location was brilliant, right in the centre of the city; so much so that a huge Apple store was at the bottom of the street.

Disliked: You had to pay to store your luggage on the last day, which was free in all other places I visited. The shower was also quite grim; there was no holder for the shower head and there was visible mold.

Liked: Our room was very clean and the staff were very helpfull and friendly. The location is very central and close to public transport. The kitchen facilities were basic and very clean. Overall we felt totally safe and only had to concentrate on having a good time.

Disliked: Not really anything. If you like sleeping with your windows open the noise from the street might be a problem - we closed our windows at night which shut out the noise (night life not vehicle noise).

Liked: The location and price.

Disliked: The decoration and furniture. The worst of all is the bathroom inside the rooms, the doors are see through acrilic and they are possible the loudest doors ever built, the same with the metal lockers and since the check out is until 10a.m. if you have somebody leaving your dorm you can imagine, don't count on sleeping late mornings.

Liked: It was very close to most of the main attractions in Madrid, as well as only a few feet from the Metro where you can travel to other parts of the city. The price is great for what it is as well!

Disliked: For the price it is good for what you get. It's not the most spotless place but for 15 Euros a night it is great!

Liked: Very friendly helpful staff, bathrooms attached to each dorm, a great kitchen, a spacious outdoor area, excellent communal areas. Also located in the heart of Madrid at a really good price. This was a great place to stay.

Disliked: Because its located in the heart of Madrid there is noise from the streets. However my dorm had solid glass doors as well as shutters that negated the noise enough for good sleep.

Liked: The staff was friendly and welcoming. The location was very close to Puerta del Sol, the Prado Museum, etc. I enjoyed my stay very much and would stay here again.

Disliked: There were six beds in our room but not six outlets; this made it difficult for some people to charge their electronic devices.
