Got stranded in Madrid during Christmas and found this hostel for an incredible price at an incredible location. Made my situation completely tolerable and even very enjoyable since I was within walking reach of everything in the centerGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Superb location, basic hotel"
The best thing about this hostale is the perfect location - literally in the centre of the city map of my guide book. You're approximately a 30 second walk from the nearest underground stop while most of the city's attractions are a within a 10-15 minute radius walk away. The hostale itself is very basis - and it's confusing trying to find the reception […] - there's no clues given on the sign itself, you need to buzz yourself in and then walk to the second floor. You don't get a key to the front door so you need to buzz in every time you want to enter - luckily there is someone on the desk 24 hours a day. The room itself was basic, we had 3 beds (2 singles and 1 double) between two of us though so plenty of room. Air conditioning is good, and the included fridge is useful. The bathroom was clean and functional although we did have a broken shower head meaning that you had to hold it above your head when you wanted to use it. Beds and towels were changed daily, while the room's safe meant I had no qualms about leaving my valuables in the room. There is inbuilt wi-fi but it's very flaky and would work sometimes and not others - don't rely on it. Overall would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for something to just crash in of a night that is clean, cheap and above all central. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Edullinen hotelli keskeisellä paikalla."
Hotelli erinomaisella paikalla tutustumiseen vanhaan Madridiin. Sopivan pieni hotelli hissiä ei tarvinnut jonotella.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Du kan ikke bo mere centralt. 50 m fra byens centrum og nabo til rådhuset. Lidt larm fra gaden når vinduet er åbent, men ikke noget der generer. Airkon på værelset. Vores værelse havde en lille bitte balkon. Værelset er ikke stort men pænt rent. Rene håndklæder hver dag. Husk at tjekke ind på Vitoria 1 50 m henne af gaden. Gode og billige restauranter […] bag hotellet især gaderne Cadiz og Barcelona kan anbefales. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Tjugo meter från Puerta del Sol"
Mycket nära till Plaza Mayor, kungliga slottet, Prado, Reina Sofia och Thyssen-Bornemiza. Lite längre till Plaza de Toros men lokaltrafiken är billig och frekvent-både bussar och T-bana. Victoria är en bra bas till ett bra pris.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotelli sijaitsee erinomaisella paikalla Puerta del Solin aukion äärellä. Vilkkaasta ympäristöstä huolimatta huone oli melko hiljainen (2. krs, ikkuna sisäpihalle). Ilmastointi/tuuletin oli välttämätön. Huoneessa - kerrankin - ei ollut kokolattiamattoa vaan puulattia. Jääkaappi oli pieni, mutta sillä pärjäsi. Ainut miinus oli kylppärin suihkun veden […] alhainen paine. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"muy limpio, excelente ubicación, cero lujo"
La habitación muy limpia aunque un tanto pequeña pero estaba bien. La entrada al hotel es un tanto extraña y fea pues parece q estuvieras ingrensando a un edificio deshabitado. La ubicación es perfecta pues estas en toda la puerta del sol y veinte pasos del metro. No me arrepentí de estar alli aunque si prefieren algo mas bonito deben buscar otro lugar. […] Este corresponde justo x lo q pagas y en mi caso estuvo bien xq lo q mas me interesa es la limpieza y en eso merece un cinco! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"hotel near the train station"
So easy to travel in Madrid. The location is very easy to find, if you return too late don't be afraid because have a lot of people on there.Genuine Expedia guest review
Ich kann dieses Hostal nur empfehlen, Preis Leistungsverhältnis ist super ! Es befindet sich direkt im Zentrum(SOL), alle Geschäfte direkt vor der HaustürGenuine Expedia guest review
O Quarto era Agradável, banheiro pequeno mas também limpo e ovo. Tinha calefação e Ar condicionado, o único problema é que o Ar Condicionado não estava habilitado para o Frio, o que não faz o menor sentido quando se tem calefação, então dentro do quaro era quente, para refrescar tínhamos que abrir as janelas dai agente não dormia por causa dos vizinhos […] barulhentos que ficavam conversando até madrugadão, enfim, noites terríveis. Falei com o Dono ele disse que ia pedir pra um técnico vir se o tempo continuasse assim. esse único detalhe tornou minhas noites bem desagradáveis. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Hostel - barato que sai caro?"
Gosto de viajar sozinha e normalmente fico em albergues com quarto individual. Como passo o dia fora explorando a cidade e volto apenas para dormir, dou prioridade à localização. Mas dessa vez, apesar de estar localizado bem no centro, fiquei decepcionada. O meu quarto (no terceiro andar), não possuía elevador, quando cheguei tinha cheiro de cigarro […] e a limpeza deixou a desejar: encontrei duas BARATAS!!!! Nem preciso falar que tenho pavor de barata... Não ficarei novamente. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK For Short Stay"
01/21/15 Janrockchick Chorley, Lancashire
Stayed three nights last weekend. Arrived about 10pm after an evening flight, to a check in at Hostal 1 (rather gloomy place), to a rather confusing way of getting to our room in Hostal II. Room on 5th floor overlooking the street, small room, tiny bath room, although fresh towels and toiletries each day. Noisy on the street below, with two rather annoying guys hanging around the front door all day shouting adverts for the buy gold business which seems to be on the first floor of the building!
"Great location , clean rooms , good price!"
01/04/15 Barbara J
My husband and I decided to visit Madrid in November 2014 and chose to stay in hostel Victoria II after reading positive reviews- I have to say - I will definitely stay there again! we arrived earlier than we were ment to check in on our first day but the nice lady in reception told us we can leave the bags with her and also checked with the cleaning staff if we can get to our rooms quicker( we never asked- she did it out of politeness) the reception is in hostel Victoria I ( next door) butthat was all explained in the confirmation email so we were aware of that. We took our card the reception lady gave us the WiFi password and we went to our room . The room was perfect for a couple staying for few nights. nice comfy bed, very clean - bathroom nice size with towels shower gel , shampoo and soap - and if needed more you can always ask the cleaning lady - she was very helpfull also. the bathroom also has hairdyer which was a bonus for me ;) The room also has a mini fridge which is nice.there's a tv and a radio , bedside lamp on each side of bed. the little balcony has a view of Puerta del sol - it's amazing location!! I was concerned about the noise but with the windows closed you cannot hear the noise of the city ! We stayed there 2 nights and I would definitely stay there again!
"Very nice place to stay"
11/29/14 docdiamond Raleigh, NC
We stayed at this hostal for two nights -- read the whole review, this is really a great place to stay. If you are driving, it is almost impossible to find, even with a GPS. We ended up parking and then walking to the hostal. When we arrived at the hostal, we tried to decline our reserved parking (having already parked), but had to pay for it anyway, which resulted in a very high bill for parking. Then they charged me in dollars without asking me, and then tried to tell me that they charged me in Euros. I don't believe that they were lying to us, because they did not speak English, and I did not speak Spanish. But they clearly charged me in dollars, which always results in a very poor exchange rate. You have to check in at Hostal Victoria I, and then you walk a few doors down to Hostal Victoria II, which confused a lot of folks. Victoria II is much better than Victoria I, because II is directly at Puerta del Sol, which is the nerve center of Madrid, and our balcony was front and center. PERFECT location, at a very reasonable cost, even if it was sometimes very noisy. The room was very nice and clean, and the staff that serviced the room was extremely pleasant and helpful. There were plenty of bars and restaurants as well as many different kinds of shopping in the area. And you are close to the Prada and everything else. If it wasn't for the parking and payment problem, I would have given them 5 stars. I would not hesitate to stay here again.
"Great Hotel in central Madrid."
10/09/14 DWAG1950 Southend-on-sea.
We had 2 nights at Victoria 2 after booking in just up the road at Victoria 1 in Calle Carretas. What a lovely surprise. Member of staff showed around the room and where everything was. Door card entry and for electric slot. Large double bed, small wardrobes including safe & fridge which is very useful. Window outlooks to a square court yard so little or no noise and a great sleep. Room 228 on the second floor approached from Carretas. Air-con was great extra. WFI fine no issues & password on desk in reception at Victoria 1. Bathroom small but adequate with a little bath plus good shower, toilet, sink and toileteries, with 2 bath & 2 hand towels. All replaced each day. Just cannot complain for something so central. B/Fast was in small bars in the road coffee & Croissant etc. You are right on the Puerta Del Sol and minutes from Calle Mayor. Metro's close as well. Highly recommend this hotel for location, cleanliness, value to visit Madrid. Great.
"Great location & services"
10/07/14 DanJM88 San Francisco, California
We stayed at Hostal Victoria II just one night in a twin room, but it was a really nice surprise. Could not complain about the room, there was everything you could need, even supplied toiletries and a fridge. Some could complain about the noise levels (although in this location it is unavoidable) but unless you are a very light sleeper it should be ok (thick windows). Overall a great choice for the price and very friendly staff
"Excellent location, clean and affordable"
08/20/14 Boris C Zagreb, Croatia
Very decent hostel in the center of Madrid for a even more decent price. They will provide a parking garage nearby also for peanuts. One can't complain about some noise since you are in the center of Madrid, but was not a problem. Room is clean and big enough. No complaints at all, would come back for sure.

This review is really for Victoria II since that is were we stayed even tough our reservation was for Hostal Victoria I. it is in great central location, room was big enough for the 3 of us, 1 single bed and 1 double bed, really clean and bedding is new and confortable, with a wardrobe, some shelfs, a safe and a mini refrigerator. Our room was in the 3 floor or the 5 floor depending on which entrance you used, this hostal share various floors in 3 different buildings that are somehow interconnected, it is confusing at first but you get used to it. The bathroom was small but functional and always spotless clean, there is noise from the square but the doors help muffled it a great deal so not a problem for us. I would definitely recommend this place, the location is fantastic you are in the center of Madrid with the metro and the tour buses at your doorstep, and lots of places to eat or shop within walking distance.
"A very central located Hostal!!"
05/11/14 Sharon Z Qormi, null, Malta
Recommend this hostal as it was very clean and central. The rooms are not big but enough for those who spend most of their holiday getting around different places and going back to the hotel only to shower and sleep. We had a balcony overlooking Peurta del Sol and the metro is just across the road. Keep up the good work!!
"Great position, good value for money"
04/30/14 SeventhHeaven83 Milano
Great location in central madrid, perfect to reach a lot of places by walk. The place is clean, the room is very small but ok if what you need is just a place to sleep and have a shower afte a long day of visiting in Madrid. The only thing is the noise that you can hear from other rooms and from the close Puerta del Sol, which is a very crowded place. So basically the place is on average and for what was the price, it is definitely good value for money.

My friend and I stayed in a twin room at this hotel and were very pleased. This is not a luxury hotel by any means, but as a centrally located, budget location for sleeping & bathing it is fantastic. The room was typically European, i.e. smallish, but had a nice wardrobe, shelves and nightstand for storing our belongings. It was generally a bit stuffy and overly warm, especially overnight, so we opened our window - the street noise was not too bad during the week but on the weekend was boisterous. With the window closed it wasn't too bad though. Shower facilities were fine, always had nice hot water. We loved that there is a fridge in the room, very convenient for keeping some snacks and drinks on hand. The staff was super friendly. My key stopped working twice, which was a bit annoying, but they were sympathetic and rekeyed it immediately. Location off Puerta del Sol was great for accessing the metro or walking to sights and dining. There's a pizza place just below the hotel - awesome if you arrive late at night like I did - lots of dining nearby. There's also a grocery store a couple streets over. Overall I would definitely stay here again and recommend Hostal Victoria II to anyone looking for a centrally located, budget hotel.
