"Perfect place to stay in Madrid"
While it was a little hard to find, it was a perfect place to stay! Close to the metro, shopping and cafés! The staff was very very helpful with information, trips and just making sure we were comfortable!! The area was a little loud but I expected that. I would stay there again Ina second!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"We loved it!!"
Very well located just off of Gran Via (main shopping street in Madrid) on a small side street that proved to be much quieter than on a main street. I read other reviews of complaints of noise but we encountered no such trouble. The room was simply furnished but with style, everything one would need was in-room including a hairdryer! The room was extremely […] clean with very comfortable beds. Which was so nice after such a long journey from Canada. Breakfast was self-serve and included the our room rate, consisting of juice, coffee, tea, toast and cereal! Everything you need is well located and very close to sights and restaurants. There was a computer for guest to use in the lobby but we took advantage of in room complimentary wi-fi which was very fast and dependable. Helena and the rest of the staff were so lovely and very friendly and ensured my, my sister and mother had what we needed for a very comfortable stay. We would not hesitate to stay there on our next visit to this wonderful city! Thank you! Tara, Kerry and Louise Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Great stay in Madrid."
This is a great place to stay if you're looking to stay somewhere clean and cheap. Well worth the money paid. Staff was friendly, although did not all speak english. Free wifi, and even a computer that could be used if necessary. Breakfast was served in the common area and there was a large variety of food which was great. We took a little while to […] actually find the place as it was kind of hidden down a little side street and the sign is not very visible. There is a buzzer to let you in to the building which seemed annoying at first, but there was always someone there to open for you. Overall a great stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Muy buena ubicación"
La ubicación era muy buena, en el centro, a pocos pasos de todo lo interesante de Madrid, el servicio fue bueno, pero el desayuno era muy básico y muy escaso (no queso, no futas no huevos, no jamón, etc, escasamente café con pan), el sitio parael dsayuno muy pequeño. Por lo demás, el hotel estuvo bien, la habitación bien, camas, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Lite svårt att hitta, endast en liten plåtskylt avslöjar stället! Rent , snyggt och trevligt! Jag hade ett comfortroom med privat badrum ! Mycket nöjd! Något lyhört , men det får man räkna med på ett hostel. Inget för den klaustrofobiske då rummen saknar fönster! Trevlig och tillmötesgående personal! Wifi fungerade alldeles utmärkt på mitt rum (08) […] ! Tv på rummet. Läget kändes som idealiskt 2 min från stationen "Sol" där du har förbindelse med tåg till flygplatsen ! Biljett till flygplatsen kostar 2.50 euro (tåg C1) Kontinental frukost som var basic men fullt godkänt ! Det är ett hostel , men kan lätt säga att just detta hostel placerar sig i den övre delen betygsmässigt ! Jag återvänder gärna tillbaka till Far Home vid tillfälle!

"Emplacement idéal, très bon accueil"
Emplacement idéal en plein centre des quartiers animés de Madrid, proche aussi bien de la plaza Mayor et du Palais Royal que des musées Prado, Reina Sofia et Thyssen, très bon accueil, personnel chaleureux, la chambre était grande et propre. Le seul inconvénient est le bruit. Notre chambre donnait sur la petite rue de Chinchilla et il est juste impossible […] de dormir sans boules Quies. Petit déjeuner simple mais complet.

"calidad precio buena."
Calidad precio buena, situado en pleno centro en gran via. Lo único que mejoraría seria un poco de pintura en las paredes, algunos roces negros. Sin duda para repetirGenuine Expedia guest review

호스텔은 되게 깨끗하고 깔끔했어요. 방음이 좀 안되는지 밖에서 사람들 떠드는 소리가 들리긴 했지만 잠 못잘 정도까진 아니었구요. 위치도 너무 좋고 편안하게 잘 이용했습니다:-)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

浴槽付きのシャワーで気持ちのいい。駅からも非常に近いが、その分ちょっと騒がしい。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
사진에서 본것보다는 시설이 훌륭하진 않았어요. 그냥 방에 침대만 있고 화장실 딸린 정도.. 어차피 잠만 자고 나올 방이라 시설은 그다지 상관은 없었어요. 위치는 좋았고 가격은 보통인것 같아요. 아침식사는 시리얼과 식빵 구워먹는 정도,. 호스텔은 모두 아침조식이 그런거더라고요Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Tudo muito limpo e pessoal muito simpàtico."
Adorei o hotel. É muito bem localizado, perto das melhores coisas de Madrid. O quarto e limpo, confortavel. Senti falta de janelas no quarto, mas tudo bem. Otimo cafe da manha e os recepcionistas sempre simpaticos.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
地下鉄グランビアから徒歩５分くらい、プエルタ・デル・ソルまで５分程度。非常に便利な立地にあり、夜も人通りがあるので安心。ユースホステルのような価格で、トイレ・シャワー付き一人部屋、スペイン風朝食（セルフサービス）付き。驚くほどお得。スタッフも英語が堪能で親切。滞在者用の共同冷蔵庫もあり長期滞在者にも便利だと思う。Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"ottima posizione ma pessimo servizio"
La posizione è ottima, centrale sulla gran via. Il servizio pessimo. Sul sito si parla di breakfast buffet in realtà sono solo poche cose confezionate in sacchetti già aperti e utilizzati per oltre la metà da chi è venuto prima di noi. Pane in cassetta, caffè zucchero e bustine di the tutto rigorosamente già aperto e chiuso arrotolando il sacchetto. […] Qualche marmellata e burro monoporzione in frigo. Le pulizie giornaliere non sono state fatte, solo cambiato sacchetto spazzatura nel bagno. Il pagamento è stato preteso all' arrivo ancora prima di aver visto la camera. Quello che non trovo corretto è indicare servizi che in realtà non vengono dati. Per pochi gg le pulizie non sono fondamentali, l' importante è saperlo prima come pure il tipo di colazione offerta. Tolto questo, la posizione é ottima. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"good, cheap and clean hostel"
The room is good, the reception is good, can speak English as well. Nice and polite, room and bed is clean. Just one things, the logo and the direction from the ground floor not clear. The image also not the same building.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
I went on a weekend break to Madrid with some of my girlfriends. It was a last minute thing but we managed to find the far home hostel at a great price. I had never stayed in a hostel before and I hadn't managed to see any of the pictures before hand so I was a little worried about what to expect as we managed to get it so cheap! When we arrived in Madrid I was surprised at how close the hostel was to Gran via. Just a stones throw away from everything. Metro stops, Cinemas, Plaza del sol... Great location. The room was a three single bed room with en suite. Was surprised at how great it was. Then on top of that breakfast was included. you just got up and helped yourself to toast or cereals and as much of it as you wanted. There was also a fridge for you to put any food or drinks in that you wanted to keep cool. Would recommend it !!
"Great stay, great location"

This is hostel is right off of gran via and is in the heart of the city. Puerta del sol and el parque de buen retiro are very close and less than a ten minute walk. The hostel itself is small and cozy with around 10 rooms. The reception staff was very nice and answered all of the questions that we had during our stay. The rooms are also quite nice and spacious. This is easily one of the nicest hostels that I have stayed at in Europe. The only problem that I had was that it can get a little loud at night with the road right next to it. Overall, great stay!

Two nights in Madrid and this hostel did not disappoint. We loved the apartment style offering and it was fun running into locals sharing the stairs, with a quick 'Hola'! Pros: private bathroom, comfy beds, air con (this city is hot!) fast wifi, basic breakfast, close to metro, Gran via is literally on your doorstep. Bars & food two seconds walk. Cons: none.
"I wish I could be as kind as some of the other reviewers..."

I am a fairly well traveled person.I know generally that money usually dictates the quality. We were looking for a cheap place to stay in Madrid at the end of a long trip to Spain. I came across this place and naively booked on the strength of the room photos. We booked a 50 sqm 'suite' and yes I knew it wouldnt actually be a suite but I did expect it to be close to the 50 sqm. Sadly it was neither. The room was very worn, scuffs, marks and odd looking (see photos) stains on the couch. The 'kitchenette' surely used to be the loo, also see pics. The bed was a fold up and they squeak badly as we discovered listening to our neighbours go at it like rabbits. To top it off, and this is not really the hotels fault the neighboring building is being renovated so from 8 AM to after 10 PM they were drilling etc. There is no soundproofing at all, the room doors are very close to each other and it always sounded like someone was coming into your room. We were departing early in the morning, 7 AM and were informed that reception is 24 hours, so after banging on the door to reception for ages I gave up and left the room key in the reception door. I wish I'd spent that extra few $$$ and stayed in a more reasonable establishment. On the plus side the lady at reception was very nice .
"Ombelico del Madrid!"

The advantages of this hotel are as follows: -excellent central location, with three metro stations only 2-5 minutes away ( Gran Via, Callao, Sol-Vodafone ), 20 meters from Gran Via boulevard, with all the associated attractions (restaurants, retail stores, cinemas, theatres etc); -excellent room rate; -very good comfort; we had a suite and all the amenities are provided to feel like home (refrigerator, microwave, washing mashine, air condition, flat screen TV with more than 40 channels, dining area, a huge living room with plenty of space for luggages; free wifi); secured entrance in the building; -the efficient and careful staff; -breakfast included. Madrid is a fabulous city and Far Home Hostel is a wise choice for those tourists who want to visit all day ( and night) the central area. I mean, practical, not pampered tourists.
"second best to your home"

The place is perfect for travelers who spend more time exploring Madrid. The place is centrally located and also conveniently located to supermarkets and restaurants. Service is efficient. Rooms, hallways, and bathrooms are always kept clean. Flexible to their guests requests. Staff are friendly and always ready to help. The atmosphere makes you feel that you’re not really away from your home. This place conveys the best Spanish hospitality in Madrid.

This is a lovely place. We had a double room and it was very clean and spacious with an ensuite bathroom. The staff were fantastically helpful. Only criticism is slight noise from the street; however, it's in the middle of a capital city so is expected!!!
"Enough for a nice visit"
01/14/14 Rachel V
Far Home Hostel is not the best hostel I've stayed in my life, but does his job as well. The room is very clean and with air conditioning, the place looks like new renovated and you do also have a television inside your room with some channels in english as well. On the other hand, some things bothered me: 1) There are no windows inside the room and it's also quite small, so if you have any claustrophobic tendencies, stay away from this place; 2) the rooms are really close to each other, so sometimes you can clearly hear what's happening outside. That bothered me while sleeping, just because there are always these unpolite and loud people which come late at night; 3) Everything you need is provided in "big sizes". The shampoo and soap in the room, the butter and jam at the breakfast, which is really not that hygienic. 4) At the breakfast, the milk and juices stay out of the fridge all the time, which can also be quite dangerous depending on how much time these products stay there (considering that breakfast goes from 7 to 11, that's quite a long time) Anyway, the hostel in pretty good located, close to metro stations and to the main places in Madrid. If you're in the mood, you can pretty much do everything walking and in 2 days you've seen the best places around here. The staff is also really kind.
"An excellent and cheap hostel."

Far home hostel is not only excellent but also is localizated near to Grand Via, the most important street in Madrid. There are TVs and private bathrooms even in the shared rooms and the staff is very kind.
