Was good choice of central location. Easy bus and Metro connection.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great location if you want to be in the very centre of madrid. Reasonable sized room for 3 people. We didn't have a view so it was a bit claustrophobic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best price for best location"
Fantastic stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small & old, ok location, good service"
The hotel is in a good tourism location - close to the castle and city squares. The hotel is quite old and out-dated. The hotel doesn't have free wi-fi and tried to charge for internet access I didn't have, but amended the bill in the end. Ok for budget.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Small room but perfect for exploring Madrid"
Was very happy with my stay at Hostal El Pilar - it is very close to the Sol metro station and is within walking distance of all the main attractions in Madrid. It was a great place to base myself for my short stay in Madrid and I was very happy with the hotel. The staff don't speak much English but were pleasant, and the wifi sometimes didn't work […] very well, but the room was cleaned every day and the hotel is very secure. Would definitely recommend and would stay again! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Gutes Hotel im Zentrum von Madrid"
Sauber und sehr bequeme Betten.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
El hostal esta súper bien. Lo mejor la zona, en pleno centro y al lado de todo. La habitación muy limpia, buena temperatura y el baño nuevo y bien acondicionado. Las zonas comunes algo mas descuidadas pero en general calidad precio estupendo.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Just Perfect !!"
Very good location, nice people at the reception 24/7 welcoming you every time you get in, I had a very pleasant stay there. Everything is near the hotel, 20 meters to Plaza del Sol and the metro station, 4 minutes walk to Gran Villa. Very nice hotel. I will be back thereGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Muy céntrico y accesible"
Un hostal muy céntrico y con acceso fácil si se viene en tren. Tranquilo en cuanto a ruidos y bien atendido por los propietarios y por el resto de personal. Recomendable para conocer el centro de Madrid sin tener que desplazarse excesivamente.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Hostal nel pieno della Movida"
Ottima qualità prezzo, molto pulito, scendi e sei nel mezzo della folla. Ma in camera sei tranquillissimo. Personale cordiale e disponibile. Non è chiaramente di lusso, ma perfetto così.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Troppo rumoroso ma centrale"
Sono stata in questo hotel il week dal 23al26 ottobre, camera pulita ma senza phone e doccia schiuma , ti danno una saponetta che ti deve bastare per il soggiorno. Un'altra pecca è il fatto che sia molto centrale quindi la notte non si dorme, è un via vai di gente che rientra a tutte le ore e rumori che vengono dalla piazza. Che dire complessivamente […] non è male come hotel ma data la posizione credo proprio che non ci tornerei anche se i proprietari sono stati molto gentili e disponibili.

"lo unico q vale es su ubicacion"
Lo unico q vale, es su localizacion, oscuro de luz natural, antiguo en buen estado y ellos amables, calidad precio me parece caro, pero hay q pagar el sitio, es iniguanableGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quarto minúsculo e com cheiro horrível."
O hostal é velho, o meu quarto (single) era minúsculo, com cheiro horrível. Tive que desligar o ar condicionado porque o cheiro de queimado que saía dele era insuportável. O aspecto do quarto era que ele não era limpo. Embora existisse internet, ela não funcionava. A única coisa elogiável era a localização, próxima da Puerta del Sol.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Pero en bastante mal estado. Creo que las personas del hotel deberían límpiese u poco más y deberían tener internet de mas vGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hostal muy céntrico."
Muy buen hostal si la idea es estar cerca del centro de Madrid,tener un lugar donde dejar el equipaje,descansar un poco y darse una ducha.El personal fantástico y muy servicial.Mi habitación daba para el interior del edificio por tanto no escuché nada durante la noche salvo alguna cañería que otra en momentos puntuales ya que es un edificio antiguo […] .

通りに面した入口はベルを鳴らさないと開錠してもらえません。そういう点では、セキュリティー面は安心できると思います。ホテルのフロントは３階（スペインでいう２階）にあり、１階はアパートの入り口のような感じで、最初は間違えて入ってしまったと思いました。部屋は必要最低限の設備で、アメニティーは石鹸だけですし、バスルームはやや狭いですが、宿泊だけなら問題ないと思います。コイン式（１ユーロ）のセキュリティーボックスがありました。マドリッドは治安がよくないといわれているため、パスコート等の貴重品はそこに入れて観光に出かけました。スタッフの対応もよかったです。Genuine Hotels.com guest review

This hostal is located literally less than a minutes walk from Sol square. Couldn't have asked for more for the location. The rooms are very small but clean. We had a room at the back of the hostel so never had any issues of noise from the street. The adjoining walls are very thin however and could hear the guys in the next room snoring. There is a safe in the room which requires €1 inserted each time you open it which isn't refunded. There is a vending machine and coffee machine by the reception desk. The staff are extremely polite and very pleasant. All in all this is a base in the centre of madrid which is excellent value for money. If value, location and cleanliness ticks your boxes then this place will do you fine.

"Good value and perfect location."
03/18/15 Matheus M Niteroi, RJ
This hostel is located right behind Puerta del Sol, so you can't possibly find a hostel with a better location. The rooms are small, but clean. The staff is always very helpful. Overall, it's good value for money if you are only staying for a few days. Tip: ask for a room away from the reception desk. My room was close to it and it was very noisy at night until 2 a.m.
"Perfect location, very clean hostel!"

Hostal El Pilar is located steps from Puerta del Sol, KM0 of Spain. It is a stroll away from all the other major tourist attractions of Madrid. The best thing is that you have private rooms with en-suite bathroom. The only inconvenience is that the rooms are very small and the lighting on the hallway sometimes does not work. The strong points are the cleanliness, the comfortable bed, the location in the heart of the city, the vicinity of bars, pubs, clubs, restaurants and shopping streets, including Gran Via. Also, the staff are more than helpful and nice, always greeting you with a warm smile. Point is, that if you are not very pretentious, on a budget and need a centrally located, clean and comfortable place to sleep for a few hours a night, this is the place to be!
"Value for money and great location"

Hostal El Pilar is an inexpensive budget hotel that is conveniently located right smack in the heart of Madrid. It is near essential Madrid tourist sights like the Gran Via, Mercado San Miguel, Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. There are also plenty of shopping choices and eateries nearby. The Sol Metro Station is only a short walk away and you could use this to get to Atocha Renfe for train rides to nearby Toledo. The room is small but clean. We felt comfortable during our two nights there and the people at the hostal were friendly. Wifi is included. Highly recommend this place for anyone looking for an inexpensive room in the centre of Madrid.
"Good value, clean and good situated hotel (or hostel...?)"
12/04/14 NL-viajero Kinderdijk, The Netherlands
This hostel was advised by a colleague - who also works for Travel Counsellors. Other customers had stayed there and gave a positive review of the hostel. And so do I. The name 'Hostal' can easily be changed into 'Hotel': you have your private room with private bathroom, air-conditioning in the room and daily housekeeping service (new towels, bed redone) as you might expect from a hotel. Front door is open 24/7 (ring the buzzer - The door is locked due security). It is situated in the middle of Madrid, about 50 meters walk from Metro-station Puerta del Sol. From the airport it takes about 40 minutes by metro and coast 5 euro - get out the metro station situated prox 50 meters from the hostal. Around the corner are some small streets filled with all types of restaurant - from fancy and cheap till South American-style and 'dressed up'. And down stairs next to the hostal you find a restaurant that serves good coffee - (dubble expresso only EUR 1,25 as take-away). And off course, the whole centre of Madrid is one big culinary event, so many restaurants.... I would sure come back to this hostel (or hotel) and recommend it.
"Very good location, nice room"
11/20/14 Alex H Perth, Western Australia, Australia
Located in central madrid at a perfect location. We only stayed one night and had an early flight but the value for the location and for what you pay is fantastic. Everything can be seen by foot, plenty of restaurants around. Only annoyance was the receptionist did not make a mention of breakfast on check in. We didn't care as we had to leave early, before breakfast but it should be a forefront on welcoming.
"in the centre of Madrid"

"great location in the heart of Madrid"

I stayed at the Hostal for 4 nights...it is right next to the Puerta del Sol incl. Metro Stadion. I would recommend to buy a Tourist ticket for the Metro at the Airport. i bought one for 5 days for 26Euro..you can go with that ticket all over Madrid incl. the Airport (great value). It is the best and cheap hostel in the central of Madrid. The staff is friendly and helpful.. Wifi is incl... i would stay there again....!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
"Perfect location !!!"

My mother and I stayed at Hostal El Pilar for 5 nights in September-October and it was a really great value for the money. They charge ONLY 55 Euros for a double room and it couldn't be in a better place, 2 minutes walking from la Puerta del Sol. You can visit everything by foot and it's a very pleasant area to be in. Everything was as described on the Internet site and we were pleased with every aspect: our room # 325 had view on the inner yard so there was no noise at all, A/C was working perfectly well, everything was top clean and we had our private bathroom with shower and half-bathtub. Beds were comfortable, housekeeping was done everyday and towels were changed everyday too. A mini-elevator brings you to the reception at the second floor or you can take the 4 flights of stairs, your choice. The welcoming was a little bit cold but always polite. Credit cards are accepted. There is no breakfast included in the price but on the Puerta del Sol, you can grab very tasty pastries at "La Mallorquina" for a cheap price. There are also some machines at the reception where you can buy coffee or soft drinks. Basically, if ever we return to Madrid, we'll definitely reserve again at Hostal El Pilar. Extremely well located, not expensive, comfortable and very clean.
