Score from 290 reviews Very good
Location was great - near the metro and big sights. Staff were very friendly and helpful day and night! Building is charming with old wooden staircases and elevator - you really felt the history. We had small balcony- just right for people watching in the square. It is quite a lively area but with the shutter and double glazed balcony door closed you can hardly hear a thing. It was a great stay. Wifi was good in our room.
It's location and staff .
Exterior room in front of a park , to much noise still 4 a.m. every day .
This is very nice hostal in the middle of Madrid very close to major places. A lot of restaurants and nice places to go around 5-10 minutes walk from the hostal. Room was clean, bathroom new and very clean too. Very good quality compare to the price we pay. It wasn't loud in the night like I read in previous opinions, and we were there in the weekend. Highly recomended!
The only problem is no english speaking person in front desk, but there are so nice that you can manage everything anyway :) Later we discovered that even in the restaurants in the city it's no so easy to find english speaking stuff :)
The location is perfect, you can reach both the most important sights and good restaurants, bars and shops on foot. Staff is friendly and 24h available. Room is nice and comfortable with a very nice view of the square.
They didn't change bed sheets during our 4 days stay. Double bed means two totally single beds pushed together and also a bit noisy.
1) Hospitable and Exceedingly friendly staff, especially Christine, who could understand our needs. We had no problem with communication. 2) Excellent location. A surprise find as I didn't espect to stay so close to what we would say is Singapore Orchard Road! Just about 100metres away is a "food paradise" where restaurants and eateries line both sides of the plaza. 3)The Gran Via aka Orchard Road runs from one end to the other , and is so amazingly long that we can't see where it begins or end. It is no doubt the busiest road in Madrid complete with shops , restaurants, eateries, hotels and even beautiful buildings. 4)Travelling by public transport is no problem. Metro Gran Via is just within reach,a good five minute walk from the hostalVasquez. And of course there are the public buses too. 5)For the simple traveler on a budget, there are mini supermarkets or alimentation(grocery) or just round a corner facing Gran Via is a 24 hour pizza outlet. 6)For those who want to hang out late evenings, there is the tapas which I understand are liquour and snacks et cetera entertainment. 7)Security in this Hostal is good as there is only one entrance which is opened by the staff.
1)Sometimes , they forgot the toiletries. But they apologise for it .
great location and very helpful staff
Location was excellent for the cost. 5-10 minute walk to Plaza Puerta del Sol, a huge main hub for the city. Rooms were simple but clean. Staff was friendly but knowing some Spanish will go a long way to help. Taxi to airport from there was 35 euro for 2 people.
Wifi in our room was very, very weak. Most times it wouldn't even pick up the signal so had to walk down the hall to where the signal was stronger.
Ubicación y relación calidad precio.
Habitación quizás un poco pequeña.
Good location. Decent value. It's close to the Gran Via metro and within walking distance to museums and much of central Madrid.
Wifi did not work in room. Had to sit out on the hallway to use it and even there it worked poorly. Air conditioner was turned off by staff on the last night which made for noisy and uncomfortable sleeping.
Very clean, great location
Value for money.
Not comfort bed and pillow.
the staff was unfriendly and impatient
It was very central, but you were not disturbed by noise at night. The staff were very accomodating and helpful. The rooms were very clean and just what we needed.
The hotel is very well located (100 m from Gran Via) and the price very reasonable
The rooms are rather noisy (especially noise from the other rooms)
Great place to stay in an amazing location. If you are a light sleeper ask for an internal room, if you enjoy listening to the sounds of the city (Madrid does not sleep!) take external as they have better views. The staff are great, it is very safe and extremely clean, good size room and private bathroom. It is more a hotel than hostel and is suitable for everyone, it isn't a backpacker hostel! I would happily have stayed there with my mum. Highly recommend it for anyone going to Madrid and in need of a central place to stay for a good price. They also have 24 hour reception.
price and cleanliness
Great central location, good neighbourhood (Chueca), friendly staff, cleanliness
Loud noises from upper floors at night, a pity because otherwise nice room with a good view of a quiet square.
Perfect location Good value for money Large bedrooms
all i can say is its the best in the city for us,,,dont miss out,,,make your resv at this wonderful place
i cant say enough for this marvelous place ,,,i would tell all to stay there we do every year
The Staff and the Location was great!
I booked a double room and get a room with a small bed. The bed was very small for two people. The Internet doesnt work also in this room.
The location was great, room was clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful, and the price was more than reasonable.
Excellent location, just few minutes walk from the city centre. Spotlessly clean Very good value Air conditioning
Bathroom could do with modernising (but was perfectly serviceable and very clean)
