Be careful when you book here. The staff and owner are known for trying to rip off foreign customers and find ways to charge more. There are many other hostels right next to it and in the vicinity that offer a more trust worthy service for the same price.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Under maintenance / dishonesty"
Upon arrival the room we rented was undergoing major construction and unusable. The desk clerk said we would have to take a single room and pay for another single room and that no room with two beds was available. As soon as I dialed hotels.com on the phone and it started ringing, a room with two beds immediately became available. I would recommend […] removing this property from hotels.com.

"très bruyant-bon emplacement"
Lit pour 2 personnes alors que nous avions réservé pour 4.(chambre de 4 soit disant finalement pas disponible) donc équipée pour 2 personnes (2 serviettes de toilettes....)- aucune isolation phonique - très bon emplacement dans rue piétonne en plein centre de Madrid - Station de taxi proche -Genuine Hotels.com guest review
spazi limitati nella camera; infissi fatiscenti; servizi minimali ma, considerato il prezzo e la ottima posizione ...non potevamo aspettarci molto di più. L'accoglienza e la disponibilità della reception sono state buone, consigliato per chi bada al sodo e non ha alte pretese.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"qualità prezzo posizione ottima"
Ottima posizione, impossibile chiedere di meglio, ma in strada i rumori non finiscono mai anche se è abbastanza insonorizzato Ottimo prezzo 66 euro a notte per una quadrupla. non è climatizzato, quindi se andate d'estate non si dorme dal caldo, in stanza c'era solo un ventilatore.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Owners decided to remove our door in the middle of the evening - worst place i've ever stayed!!"
05/09/14 Sam H Chelmsford, United Kingdom
I look for two things when choosing somewhere to stay; a clean bed and a hot shower - I didn't get either. I stayed for 4 nights with two girlfriends in a tiny three bed room. When we first got there it seemed fine and cute but it had gone 1am and we were very tired! When we woke, there was no hot water so cold showers all round. We then found that none of the staff spoke a word of English so we tried to talk to them in Spanish and had a good laugh but it went straight down hill later that day when we started to get ready to go out - still no hot water! We got back to the hotel around 1am (not a late one considering Madrid never sleeps!) but our neighbour insisted on knocking on the wall and telling us to be quiet - I should mention now that this hostel is opposite one of the biggest clubs in Madrid so no one could possibly get to sleep until 7am! The cold showers and no sleep continued the whole time. The WORST part of this hotel came Monday evening - after a day of walking we decided to head back to freshen up before we went for dinner... When we got back we found that we had no door!!!!! They had decided that we needed a new floor fitting whilst all our luggage and valuables were in there so they removed the door and started laying some disgusting laminate on top of the already disgusting laminate! They moved all of our stuff, covered our clothes with all sorts of rubbish and left allsorts on the bed I was sleeping on! We tried to ask what was happening but, because of the language barrier, they could not explain - there was no hint of apology; I was just happy I secured my case with a padlock! We felt violated and so disappointed!!

The hostel is located right in between Opera and Sol Metro stations (aka the height of the tourist area). The room I stayed in was quite small, but it suited my needs just fine. There was a bit of noise throughout the hostel, but nothing more than you would expect during the busy season in Madrid. My room was not near the street so if you require a good rest, request a room closer to the front desk. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. If you want a (cheap) place to stay in the middle of the city, this is the perfect place!
"worst hostal I have ever seen"
04/05/11 ipoksane Riga, Latvia
I stayed in this hostal for one night and this was more than enough. It is really hard to get a room in Madrid at this time of the year so I didnt have much choice. Maybe there are rooms like in the pictures. However my (nr.7) was different. Small, with signs of leak on the ceiling and mold in the bathroom. TV has just 2 channels. No hair dryer. Impossible to open the window because of the smell coming from the kitchens of the nearby restaurants. And the worst thing - noise! People in the reception are talking (for me it sounded more like shouting) between themselves with no paying attention if there is somebody in the room or not. And it doesnt matter whether it is 9 pm or 9 am. There is a luggage storage like they say on the webpage. They just didnt mention the cost 1 euro.
"Good Location otherwise average"

Hostel was located a short wlak from the Royal Palace, the Plaze Mayor and the Plaza del Sol. make surre you get a "quiet" room since it is located ona street that never sleeps.
"simple and neat"
10/23/10 miegz North Bergen, New Jersey
the hostal was very clean because it was maintained by the best workers in the world, Filipinos! it was right at the heart of the shopping and tourist district... best priced for euros... the only thing is, if you are a night owl like me, don't get spooked by the owners of the hostal, they sleep on the living room sofa where the computer is... lol

Prácticamente siempre que voy a Madrid, me alojo en un hostal. Es algo muy típico y los hay a miles. Pero ya sé uno al que no volveré jamás: el hostal Alicante. Hemos venido para pasar un fin de semana con la familia y he acabado llamando a la Policía Local por el ruido. El hostal está muy céntrico pero está justo en frente de la discoteca Joy Eslava. Las habitaciones no están suficientemente insonorizadas para poder pretender descansar en buen fin de semana. Es horrible. También tienen habitaciones interiores pero son igualmente bastante ruidosas porque se oye todo el ruido de la recepción. Con todas las opciones excelentes que se pueden encontrar cerca de esta zona por el mismo precio, buscaría otro alojamiento si realmente se pretende descansar un poco, sobre todo si vais en fin de semana.

Vale pelo endereço, bem próximo de tudo, dentro do centro, mas achei caro em vista de ser muito simples. O banheiro é apertadissimo, quase que se usa o vaso, a pia e o chuveiro tudo ao mesmo tempo. Os atendentes são muito agradáveis, tentam te acomodar o melhor possível. Não tinha ar condicionado também , mas o atendente nos colocou num quarto com pouco barulho e mais fresco, tinha tbm um ventilador que quebrou o galho.
"Excelente ubicación, personal amable y precio exquisito"
05/28/13 Marina M Alicante, Spain
Situación excelente en plena calle Arenal. El hostal está bastante limpio y las habitaciones son muy confortables. El personal es amabilísimo, servicial y está siempre atento. Por otro lado, la pega es es el ruido puesto que en las habitaciones se escucha todo, tanto las conversaciones de los propios huéspedes tanto como de la gente que pasa por la transitada calle Arenal, son 24 horas de ruido pero por el precio, la limpieza y la situación, vale la pena ir.
