My friend and I booked this Hostal unaware that there was a difference between Hostals and Hostels in Spain. We had booked for 4 nights but didn´t even stay 3 hours. When we arrived the owner had no idea who we were or that we had made a reservation.The whole place is creepy and made us feel so uncomfortable. There are old men walking around half naked and lurking in the halls. The room was tidy but incredibly dated. I would never ever reccomend this hostal to anyone ever.
"The centre location with no facilities"

Stay in this hostal, during my short visit in Madrid really help me to maximum use of my time. As the location in the city centre puerta de sol which is the busiest area where shopping along the street with kind of things, restorans and only walking distance to some madrid tourist destination. Easy to reach where you can access by metro no 4 and stop at sol the hostel location just in front of the metro in the old building near the KFC. Dont thing you get anything from this hostel only the room, no heater in my room and I only found toilet I didnt find shower room and I have trouble since no one can speak english in this hostel. The room was big can accomodate upto 3 persons. For euro 25 I cant expect more........
"Basic facilities in excellent location"

The hostel in itself isn't much, it's a building's floor made into a hostel - there are 3 others just like it in the nearby buildings. It is excellently positioned in plaza del Sol, which is the starting point for the busiest shopping street in Madrid and pretty much where everything happens. We walked like crazy from the metro stop (which was literally in front of the hotel door) all the way up the main street because the hostel wasn't signaled in anyway, we had to ask some locals and eventually we found it. There are 2 toilets one next to each other, very cold, separated by a thin wall (as any other room in the building). Also there is a shower down the hall. The owner is a really really old lady which only spoke Spanish, eventually we got along. To our surprise, the wireless Internet worked perfect upon the owner granting us the network key. She also handed us with keys to our room, to the hostel door and to the building gates downstairs, in case we arrived back late in the night. Other than this, we were constantly too tired to look for more quality, since we stayed for 2 nights and slept the third at Barajas airport on the departures floor. All in all, Hostal Ruano makes for a super central, excellent position in Madrid with the very basic accommodations for a minimum price - works great if you're not picky.
"Really, really noisy and disorganised"

This is most noisy hotel I have ever stayed in! The staff are ok but the owner is crazy and deaf. I stayed only 1 night which was more than sufficient! Arrived about 11 am after overnight journey and needed sleep and rest. Within a few minutes of arriving there was a fight in reception between the owner and someone, which continued very, very loudly for about 1 hour. After which there was a lot of banging of doors !! Other prospective guests arrived to discover the rooms they had been promised were unavailable and had to make alternative arrangements in other hotels. In general there are insufficient toilet and bathroom facilities for the number of rooms in the hostal and they are not very clean. The bedsheets and towels are ancient and our room needed cleaning. The walls are thin and you can clearly hear guests in adjoining rooms having sex! After having stayed in hostals in Santiago de Compostela, Vigo and Lugo this was a big let down. Never stay in this hostal unless it is unavoidable, it is not that cheap and there is a lack of security with reception being un-staffed most of the time.
