2/10 Poor

Photos do not correspond to reality. Very dirty. The smell of dampness in the room. They didn’t want to cancel the reservation. We rented another hotel and lost money. Please refund minus commission.

Very Simple Hostal with Perfect Location
This place is very bare bones and it helps knowing Spanish. The workers can communicate in English, but you'll fare much better if you know Spanish. We had an awesome balcony and view from our room. It wasn't high up so it got loud at night, but we're from New York so it's not hard fallin asleep with street noise. The area makes this a good choice for budget travelers seeking simple creature comforts (like private bath, balcony, and a full size bed). It's close to Gran Via, 10-15 mins via Metro to plenty of tourist attractions, walking distance to many more attractions. There's a 24 hr bakery on the corner that comes in handy when you come back from a night out. They sell sweet savory baked goods. I would consider this hostal again. *Note: Wifi was terrible

Not impressed as the hotel was booked on the pictures on the website. They put us in a different part of the hotel. The rooms were nothing like advertised comfortable but very basic and not nicely presented. Would not stay again.

Spend a little more and go somewhere better
We stayed here for 3 nights and had a double room with a shared bathroom. It was difficult to find as there are no signs at all for the hotel, not even on the door. So you must have the address number written down for sure to find it. The room itself was spacious and clean, and the bed was quite comfortable as well. It advertises that it has air conditioning, and IT DOES NOT HAVE AIR CONDITIONING. Even though there is an air conditioner in the room, it does not work, and when we asked the staff about it (who knew not a word of English), she laughed and said there is none. The bathroom was small and had a dirty mop bucket in the corner of it at all times with mop water in it. There were multiple times during our short stay where there was no toilet paper to be found in the bathroom whatsoever. The times the bathroom would be cleaned would be around 9-10 AM, right when everyone is getting ready for the day, which seems very inconvenient. The location is good, extremely close to the metro and a walkable distance to many attractions. Overall, we do not recommend this hotel - spend a few more dollars and go somewhere else.

Clean, friendly, comfortable, great value!
I was staying for a short break with my girlfriend. Madrid is a city we both know and love and the hostel is well placed just by Malasaña which is a vibrant and beautiful neighborhood. The room was great with incredibly welcoming and friendly staff. The only minor downside is that there is a noisy main road alongside the hostel so if you have a room facing the road you will hear it. However it really is not too much of a problem if you can deal with a little background noise. The room was clean and well kept, was great value and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. I would definitely recommend.

4/10 Fair

The bath, washroom, shower requires a serious update. The twin level tub/shower unit could be considered a danger. Small space, slippery surface. I had to take care moving around in there, and I'm only 140 lbs..... would hate to be big and using this. Lack of electronic plugs-ins and existing ones rather old, which do not hold plugs firmly for charging is a serious issue. Plug-in in washroom less than two feet from sink. A distinct danger, especially @ 220volts. Stairs leading to upper floors (although we did not go past 2nd level) showed distinct wearing out pattern and could potentially be a danger if wet or soapy. Door locks for rooms do double bolt, but door fitting and lock mechanics seemed quite old and easy enough to break into.
