"No frills hostal"
Very clean rooms and bathrooms even if you have to share. Helpful staff, excellent safe location. I would stay there again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I traveled alone to Madrid for the first time and stayed 4 nights. You are literally in the heart of puerta del sol without the noise. I was on the 3rd floor and faced away from the square so the only noises I heard were from neighbors going in and out. The A/C worked perfectly considering it was end of October and still quite warm. The metro is right […] on the plaza as well. The single room was quite large. I highly recommend it, most people were a little older so not to loud at night. Of course Madrid is for late night Paseos so people coming in late hours is to be expected. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"PUERTA DEL SOL Hostal stay"
We stayed here for 5 nights. Location was good, right in the heart of Puerta Del Sol. The staff were polite, but not overly welcoming. When we asked about bike rentals, Ricardo did not know much. We found Trixi Bike Co. on our own, which was right around the corner. The breakfast was very basic. Beverages, toast, jamon and cheese. Needed some kind of […] fruit. I'm glad we rented a room with our own bathroom. Public bathroom was right next to our room and we could hear every time someone was using it. The room was on the inside of building, no light coming in. It was stuffy and no air movement, until we asked to run the air conditioner. Do not expect hotel beds, they were single dorm style cots. TV was very basic, all in Spanish. NO sports station. You get what you pay for! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Okay for all ages."
Plaza Puerta del sol is smack in the middle of where the action is in Madrid, Spain. People of all ages stay here. It is very comfortable and very safe.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Basic, but perfect in many ways"
Very basic, but clean rooms in old detail filled building right in center of city. Very, very basic, but perfect if you need a place to stay in city. Make sure you know what you want. This isn't a room to enjoy as a resort. Its a room to enjoy the city from.Genuine Expedia guest review
Walking distance to everything. Clean, small, basic room, nothing fancy. Helpful and friendly staff. I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Puerto del Sol Hotel in Madrid"
The hotel was very centrally located, right at the Sol train & Metro station. The elevator made coming and going much easier, since the rooms are on the 3rd and 4th floors. Rooms and facilities were clean and comfortable. I would stay there again.Genuine Expedia guest review
We were unfamiliar with Spain, let alone Madrid, and this location was absolutely perfect for our 4 day whirlwind visit. We never needed to take a Metro or a taxi to get anywhere. Unfortunately my phone was stolen at a sidewalk cafe and I did't have much command of Spanish. The hotelier was extremely helpful and allowed me use of their phone for almost […] an hour trying to get through to Apple and my phone company. They were really sweet and helpful.

"Experience Madrid Like A Native"
If you want to experience Madrid like a native, this is the place; you will be in the center of all the activity in the area! Building must be about 100 years old, but it is very well maintained. Room has 12' ceiling, typical of the circa 1900 buildings. At the time the building was built, each floor shared a common bathroom and there was no elevator, […] but they have since upgraded the rooms and added a private bathroom to each room and an elevator in the center of the elegant stairway. The included breakfast was simple but good, could not ask for more. The balcony overlooks La Puerta Del Sol Plaza, the iconic "center" of Madrid. At any time during the weekend, you could see the thousands of people transverse the very large plaza, to be entertained by the numerous street performers, or to have a meal or drink at one of the large number of restaurants and pubs, which can be found in every block surrounding the plaza. Many streets, which connect to the plaza, will lead you to other surrounding plazas and similar content. We did not need to rent a car at all; there is plenty to see, all within walking distance. For other museums and sites, like the Royal Palace, the central park, etc. we took a tourist tour bus which has a stop right in front. Had a great experience and would definitely go back and stay at Puerta Del Sol Rooms. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Close to metro - and centrally located!"
Finding the hostel was a bit of a problem at first, but it was easy to get to, and within walking distance of everything we wanted to see. I was really impressed with the Madrid metro system - anything we wanted to find could be accessed within less than 20 minutes from the hostel, and that's just if we needed to take multiple metro lines to get there! […] I would definately recommend this place! Great rooms. Free wifi. 24 hour tea and coffee! Breakfast included… toast, meat, cheese, butter and jam… tea and coffee and juice… only complaint was the water pressure… but since we usually travel to see the city, we'd definately use this place again!

This hotel was very bad, because doesn't have bathrooms in the bedroom, I had to pay 100 dollars for take another bedroom, it was a very very bad experience.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Right on Puerta del Sol"
Had to stay in Madrid for one night and this is one of the affordable and best centrally located places. Got there early for check in but the staff was very accommodating and expedited a room for me on the 5 floor - they were still cleaning the place. Free wi-fi and complimentary breakfast. Very clean, just the beds were a little like roll away types […] - but got a quiet room facing a patio. Would stay again !! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
THE STAFF AT THIS HOSTAL WAS RATED VERY HIGH.. THEY WERE ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER OUR QUESTIONS AND PROVIDED US WITH SO MUCH GUIDANCE ON HOW TO VISIT PLACES/ IF ANYTHING , WE HOPE THEY WILL BE THERE WHEN WE VISIT MADRID/Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Staff was very friendly. Hostel located right in the middle of Puerta del Sol - great location. We were comfortable and very satisfied with our stay. I would return again with a friend or a significant other - either group is great for this!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fabulous location. Great staff!"
We checked in after a long flight and were greeted so kindly! We were allowed to check in early and needed the rest. Our room was clean and served as a great central place to go see the Prado and all the art museums. Its so central to everything! We walked the whole trip.We stayed 4 nights. Even though on a busy square, our room was quiet. The air conditioning […] worked great, the staff was very helpful. I would recommend it to anyone who wants a safe and comfortable place to sleep after long days of sightseeing. It's not fancy but for the price, it's a steal! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This was my first stay in a hostel, and it was great. No frills, but you get a bed, a table, working bathrooms down the hall, etc. the Wifi is reliable, and the staff are very nice. They have limited English skills if you care about that. They serve an okay breakfast in the mornings. Nice place.Genuine Expedia guest review

Good hotel, good location and it was on a safe location. The room was ok, but in the night it was rather cold.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A good location for Madrid"
I spent five nights, four days at this hotel. At first I was nervous because it is on the 4th floor at the Puerta del Sol, one of the busiest places. However, I never heard a thing. I slept well. The owner was simply delightful and funny. She spoke French and English and was most helpful. There was a continental breakfast, nothing fancy but filling […] for the day's activities. And one of the best things was the location: I was 15 seconds from the entrance to the Metro, one of the pivotal ones. And plus I could walk to many of the places I wanted to see from the Puerta del Sol. It was clean, had a free old computer (it did work) which was free, and inexpensive for Madrid. No complaints.

"great location and value"
Great location, right on the Sol plaza, where there's a metro stop. Efficient room and bathroom, with everything you need. We spent our days and nights walking around the city and this was an easy location to get back to - great value.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We enjoyed the convenience of the location. The elevator was nice to have. The breakfast was ok. The beds were not as comfortable as I like. Boxsprings would make a difference in the quality.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Perfect location, friendly staff, would stay again"
It was a five star hostel. I have stayed at other hostels while traveling and this one was great, exactly what you would expect (in a good way). Daily: fresh towels, shampoo, soap, plenty of hot water before noon, our guess was most people slept in :), the bed was made and breakfast (toast, ham, cheese, jam, butter, cereal, graham crackers, milk, OJ, […] water, Spanish coffee). The heater definitely works. We opted for an interior room, but since we spent most of our time out it didn't bother us. We still had windows with a traditional view of Madrid buildings, I studied abroad here and it was a view I was use to, clothes hanging from other floors :) The location was great, we took the metro from the airport and as we exited Sol (c Alcala) we saw our hostel. It was my husbands first time in Madrid (Europe for that matter) and his first hostel stay and he was very pleased. He had plenty of doubt before arriving. Puerta del Sol is busy day and night, well patrolled, we always felt secure at whatever time we arrived to our hostel. Needless to say, we'd stay here again and we recommend it to anyone traveling to Madrid. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Puerta del Sol Rooms"
welcomeming and helpful. Location was great, Service adecuate. The Wi Fi was poor and less than adecuate. Other than the internet poor access. My stay was good.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Excellent loc with all services"
The location of the hotel is very convenient in downtown Madrid; it is possible to arrive via subway directly from the airport. In general, the service were OK (do not expect luxurious ones) but we had everything we needed, even breakfast!!!! I would consider it once more if needed. I can say, fair price for all of the offered services.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Don't let the weird photos throw you off. This place is great. My first time in Madrid, first time in Europe for that matter. The staff were helpful and friendly. Free breakfast. Wifi only comes in at certain areas. Clean made up room every time we came back. Worth it!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"good location, nice hostel"
Good! First time doing hostel, and it was just fine..To be kept in mind is that Madrid isn't populat destinations in Spain ( lots of beggars, prostitution, and petty crime with no landscape), so the hotels are cheap as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Horrible Hotel !"
Very uncomfortable beds,No closets , Just horrible.I will never stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Budget hotel in the heart of Madrid"
The positive: Located in front of Metro and Renfe stations on plaza Puerta sel Sol walking distance from everything. The rooms are on 3rd and 4th (European) floors with elevator. The negative: Do not bother with hotel's breakfast: I can eat almost anything but not this breakfast. The walls are really thin: again I have never complained about noise […] in the room, but you hear everything around, and doors are really squeaking. The 2 bathrooms were just outside the room and cleaning personnel somehow preferred to clean them after 11 pm. Bottom line- it was a good stay. I wish management improved breakfast menu, fix the doors and change cleaning schedule. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Get the suite"
The regular rooms aren't good, but if you get one of the suites with a balcony overlooking sol it's amazing. Clean, spacious and the staff is really helpful and nice. Breakfast was good, nothing fancy. The location can't be beat, literally right in the square!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
All the staff from reception, cafeteria and room were very helpful and friendly. Very good location and very near train station, restaurants and shopping centers. You can walk around and see a lot of nice places. If i had the chance...i will stay againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great city, Madrid."
I wanted somewhere comfortable and inexpensive, but most of all in central Madrid, and this hostal fitted the bill perfectly. It's right next to a Metro station and all bus routes, including Madrid city tourist buses Ruta 1 and Ruta 1. The room was good, the shared bathrooms were always clean, and the simple breakfast was welcome. Next time I come to […] Madrid, I will stay here. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Simple hotel in the center of Madrid"
We stayed for 11 days in a room with private bath and view of the Plaza del Sol. Best location in Madrid--you can walk to everything. Rooms are simple and beakfast lacks variety , but for the price the experience was unbeatable.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed in the Puerto Del Sol rooms for three nights. What a pleasant surprise it was for a hostel. The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I booked a single room en suite which contained a double bed. The room came with Air conditioning, toiletries and white fluffy towels changed every day.Continental breakfast served every morning with fresh […] coffee available throughout the day and night. Over all I was pleasantly surprised and will definitely day there again. Plus its right in the city centre with the metro stop Puerto del sol right outside the hostel.

Puerta del Sol Rooms is a pretty nice hostel. Family friendly. I personally booked two rooms, but the owner gave us the suite since we were a family of 6. The room had the basics and it was super clean; in addition we had a nice view of Plaza Puerta del Sol. The continental breakfast was good as well. Close to the metro, Plaza Mayor, Gran Via and other […] points of interest. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good cheap hotel, utterly central"
Incredibly central - our room had a view of Puerta Del Sol including a demonstration for a referendum (20 000 people filling the square, and the last phases of construction of a new Apple store immediately opposite. With a roll-down shutter and double glazed door to our balcony, it was possible to obtain quiet whenever we wanted. Breakfast was basic […] but sufficient, and hotel overall was great value. No problem that we checked in at 1:30 am - we phoned in advance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

Booked this hotel for the location only, was expecting it to be poor- was very wrong! Great budget hotel in an amazing location. I room was in the courtyard which was very quiet when thinking about the central location. Good breakfast. Room was very basic (but very good for the price!) but very clean- didn't expect to get what we got for the price. […] Would stay here again. The staff had excellent English and were very helpful.

"Centrally located budget hotel."
Excellently located on Puerta del Sol this budget hotel is rather shabby but the room was clean, the bed comfortable and the shower hot.

"Clean and helpful"
When we arrived for our second stay (we stayed 2 years ago) they upgraded our room and we were able to enjoy the terrace with a view over the square.

Excellent hotel for the price and perfect location, the staff are so very friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. The rooms are clean and well heated in winter.

"Great location, you get what you pay for"
The location can't be beat. Easy to get to by subway or train from the airport, train station...anywhere really. The rooms and bathrooms are small and a little dingy but if you're not going to spend time there it's not that bad. I'd eat breakfast somewhere else despite it being included. For a couple of euros you can get much better quality and fresh […] orange juice at Pans just outside on the left. They do provide soap and shampoo but I'd bring my own Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Right On the sol square"
It's very near to sol .. So easy to move around and plan for day outs.. Stayed at ensuite double room with city view for six nights.. Lot of noise from the square reaches the room.. But didn't matter for us as we were very tired from the trips of the day and the noise would not affect the sleep.. The ensuite toilet is small and lacks ventilation .. […] We had to buy a air freshner.. Also the breakfast is very basic.. Overall worth staying owing to perfect location and staff Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"In the heart of Puerta del Sol"
This is a stone's throw away from Puerta del Sol metro stop. It is a tiny door, with a travel agents sign. Don't make the mistake of walking past it several times, as I did. This offers tremendous value, for the location. It is basic, and an old building. If you're not concerned about staying at the hotel, for other than sleeping and showering, it's […] fine. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I was alone and the room was small like I expected, but quiet. The cost reflected that. The shared bathroom was of no concern and my bed was very comfortable too. Someone came in daily and made my bed and changed my bath towel and I did not expect that at all. The breakfast was coffee, tea, toast with ham/cheese and cereal too.. Walk right out your […] front door into the Puerto Plaza de Sol!!! That was nice!!! I would stay here again for sure but remember, it is a room on the 4th floor (yes, elevator) but also felt very safe with 3 locked doors to get to my room. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very central, friendly staff"
The hotel is just off one of the main squares in Madrid, right by 'Meter Zero', so I don't think it could be more central. The staff were very polite and helpful, the breakfast was fine, and the building was in an 1800's block which had it's own charms. It wasn't the easiest place to find, as it's above shops and not very well signposted (look for a […] travel agents). Also, the room was pretty old fashioned and the facilities a little basic - but if you are only going to sleep there, it's more than fine. I would certainly use it again if I went back to Madrid.
