- central location, able to walk everywhere, but in the same time quite street. It felt like a posher area than other central places. - welcoming staff and 24 hour desk
- thin walls and noisy court, so we felt that there isn't enough privacy and were waking up during the night - the internet wasn't working for most of the time, which was very annoying because I was counting on it
Beds were very comfortable and hosts were charming and friendly
Quiet location, yet within 100 metres of all the bars and restaurants in Santa Anna. Spotlessly clean and modern. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
very clean well-maintained (no mold, peeling paint, etc) beautiful apartment building inside very helpful and kind staff bed was comfortable great neighborhood, close to everything great value for money! would recommend this place!
the internet cut out for 2 hours the pillows were very hard
Excellent location, quiet but near bars, restaurants and museums. Good beds, very clean. Great value for money. The staff was exceptionally friendly.
Excellent conditions in centrally located hostel. Clean, warm (as there was cold weather on days we stayed), cozy, comfortable bed, great value for money if you consider such a location. Wifi worked perfectly. Hosts very helpful, communicative and dedicated. 2 min walk to nearest bus stop, lots of shops and bars around the area.
Classy hostel right centrally located. Very professionally managed.
This hostal is more like a pension. You have privacy and quiet. It is a family business. The staff will help with anything. The location is in the old city so it is very beautiful. It is very very clean.
Location was perfect. Staff super friendly and helpful. The room was clean, had almost everything we needed. I got sick in the middle of the stay and even thought there is not kettle in the room, I was able to ask for a cup of hot water and get it.
It wasn't easy to get hot water to make tea. There was a kitchen, but I'm not sure we could use it, it would be nicer if it was more freely available. (I also hate those huge single pillows for the double bed, but we get them everywhere in Spain...)
the location was phenomenal!!! had a quiet room off the street. very clean and well lit
it was a bit hot at night as the radiator is on automatic control
- Excellent location - great hosts - more like a B&B than hostal - Clean & comfortable
- bed a little small
Very quiet hotel,in a great neighborhood very safe with lots of shops and tapas bars,everything was near(center of the city,museums,metro)warm,comfortable bed and no light was coming in,in the morning(if you wake up easily)very clean,gentle staff,good internet connection,we would love to go there again!
A very helpful staff that could speak English, the great location near the main museums, and the general cleanliness of the hotel.
The worst part was the fact that there were no English channels on the TV but that was not a big deal. An English speaking news channel would have been much appreciated.
A very clean room with a comfortable bed, helpful staff, good internet connection, and close to all the major sites.
We were not able to adjust room temperature, so we opened the french window, which became a bit too noisy. But it was not a problem for us in the end. Overall, we are very satisfied and will recommend this hostal to anyone.
Though the place doesn't look like much on the outside, it is beautifully decorated within. Javier, our host, was very pleasant & helpful. An added benefit was his knowledge of English. We were in walking distance from The Prado, Plaza Mayor & other major sights. A little cafe across the street offered reasonably priced breakfasts.
The elevator was small. It didn't bother us, but if you have much luggage you'd need to use it more than once.
Not very much.
Plenty. Ugly furniture, cramped room, lack of sufficient toiletries and towels.Greedy owners. Ending up with a scrawled business card instead of proper receipt.
You could not find a better location to visit Madrid as a tourist. We were well looked after and given good advice on local meals . The room was peaceful and we slept well. Interesting building.
Location, location, location and very accommodating staff
Easy to find in a safe and quiet area. Close to all attractions and transport options. Plenty of hot water. Staff helpful and welcoming.
Not really a minus but no English channel on TV if only to keep up with the news
It is very well situated: walking distance to the major museums, retiro park, train station, metro stop. Excellent tapas bars and taxi stand just around the corner. The staff, Javier and Saul, are excellent. I had to bring my husband to the emergency room (all ok now) late at night. Both of them were of great help referring us to a good hospital and always offering to help the following days. They were both reassuring since we do not know anyone there and we are deeply grateful. We would stay again in Hostal Gonzalo and recommend it to family and friends.
Considering it is a hostal, there is nothing to dislike.
Hostal Gonzalo was excellent!; I saw it had great reviews online and it still exceeded my expectations; very clean, nice, great location/ neighborhood; wonderful customer service -- Javier who spoke good English was very nice, helpful, and always available; very tidy hostal and room with nice furnishings and fixtures; comfortable stay; A/C worked well; Shower was good; Bed was fine/comfortable; great location in quiet, pleasant neighborhood: about 5 minute walk to Prado Museum; 10 mins or so to Retiro Park (very nice and huge); 15 mins to Puerta del Sol; 4-5 min walk to closest Metro stop (Anton Martin); 10 min walk to Atoche train station; If willing to walk, every major sight or pedestrian street is walkable from the hostal
Only issue: Free WiFi was finicky; inconsistent; would work for brief periods of time but then were periods of time when my iPhone and laptop detected the WiFi but did not connect
Friendly staff. Clean, comfortable room. Air conditioning! Close to good restaurants and the tourist buses.
Everything was absolutely great, especially the staff who couldn't have been more gracious and helpful
A spotless, albeit small room (but this is normal in Europe) with everything you need including AC. The owners are charming, welcoming and make you fee right at home. The fun restaurants and bars a few doors away made it hard to leave the neighbourhood. Plus it is so close to all the key museums - there is nothing not to like about Hostal Gonzalo. We will happily go back there on our next visit to Madrid.
