Booked this hostel at the last minute based on the reviews and it was an excellent choice. Room is clean and sunny during the day, with lovely views of the busy street, and while basic has everything you'd possibly need. Great value for money. Better...More

This a great location in the centre of the city, its in between the metro stops Sol & Opera, a 2 minute walk to the best mercado for tapas and drinks, san miguel a must visit and also the hot chocolate and churros bar/cafe.
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
