thin walls (everything could be heard from other rooms)
Location; cleanliness; free Wifi
Had a single room and even a friend of mine was not allowed to to the room with with me just for 10 minutes....Don't understand it. Quite noisy room - not sure what it was - elevator or aircon
great location, friendly staff, clean and comfortable room. It was just perfect for our trip to Madrid and we enjoyed our stay! I recommend this hostal without any restrictions.
near the city center.
noisy, small room, always busy. Nice staff ,but not special.
Location was fantastic close to everything staff helpful with everything we had a great time !
Location just round the cormer of " Sol"
very small room and bathroom, no cofee and tea service in the room
Very good service and perfect location. Very convinience location, nearby sol plaza, can take bus, metro and taxi anytime. So many place you can find food. And the master is really nice.
the location was excellent. just a minutes walk from the sol and hence walking distance to most of the tourist spots. staff was very helpful and friendly though one of them was trying to be helpful but due to language issues couldnt help much. room was clean and bed comfortable.
The distance of my room from the reception/lift. I had to walk some distance and climb multiple staircases to reach my room. There was no lighting in the corridors and I had to use my mobile light to find the way ( I must have missed the switches I guess). The room was really small (though neat and clean) and crowded.There was a cupboard, a study table a chair and a bedside table and the room which took most of the little place that was there.barring these issues, it was a pleasant place to stay.
Great location, good cleaning every day, nice and helpfull staff, wifi, low cost and quiet and wonderfull beds
Did not find anything negative
Location Price Staff
Hot water in shower was temperamental. Could barely sit on toilet as the sink was in the way!
I will always stay at Hostal Pilar whenever I am in Madrid!!
Great location! Very close to Plaza del Sol (shops, metro, street performers etc.). We had an inside room and it was quiet and the air-conditioning was nice. The tile floors were nice and clean instead of carpet. Wi-Fi was good. You have to get buzzed into the building, but the staff were always there and were friendly. Tip: when leaving the building, push the exit button and push the door hard.This is a great place to stay with excellent value. I highly recommend staying here. We loved Madrid.
The room was great for us, but since the bathroom is small, the toilet was close to the wall which might be tight for someone quite tall. Also, they provide soap but not shampoo.
I've been staying there for 8 yrs and love it every single time. Great staff !!!
Excellent position. The room was large and clean.
There was a lot of noise in the corridor during night.
Very good situation The price
Great location! !
the room is comfortable, big and very clean, and very friendly staff.
I had to sit side-saddle on the toilet and I am NOT a big man!!! The room was tiny as was the bedroom.There was a noisy fan outside.
the location is very convenient ，and the room is so big to stay
Great location, and good wifi connection.
perfect location to explore Madrid city. The metro ,Puerta Del Sol is right at the doorstep! The accomodation is also surrounded by bars, food cafes and shopping are
nothing... occasionally noise from the late night bars but the noise level is still manageable..
The location is excellent, few metros from Plaza del Sol. Beds rooms are confortable.
Heat system is not good. There is no kitchen, so you can not heat any meal for children. The street is very noisy and people keep yelling all night long.
Excellent location and very central. We were able to walk to all museums. But the metro station is right outside too. The area is full of restaurants and branded shops. Night clubs are 5 minutes away. Helpful and friendly staff. Clean.
There was a light smell in the room. Maybe stuffiness. No shampoo was available.
