This visit was part of an adult Fine Arts Field trip. I was a little concerned about staying in a Hostel as my usual Hotel has to be a minimum of 4 stars but this delightful Hostel was very well run, exceptionally clean and perfectly located in a quiet cobbled street just off Grand Via where all the main shopping...

Stayed here for 2 nights mid May during the San Isidro festival in Madrid. Rates were incredibly cheap and I felt I got more than my money's worth. Stayed in the 3 person female dorm which had an en suite, for a hostel that's pretty luxurious! Lovely helpful staff who spoke English and let us leave our baggage at reception... More

the combined toilet/shower areas are creepy. I don't understand why the showers have see-through glass, couldn't they be partitioned like the toilet cubicles? Also the first night we went there, the receptionist was exactly like norman bates and this creeped us out. he kept popping in and out of the rooms throughout the hostel explaining unnecessary things to us. but...

Fantastic location, great value for money, friendly staff and clean! I can't really comment on the breakfast as there's a little pub a few doors up ... Need I say more, But my partner enjoyed it. Would recommend to any one looking for a cheap weekend break :)

I am a fan of establishments being open about what you get. In this case I received a stinky room with no windows. This was no mentioned on any sites from the hostel and while it is "ok" , it should be noted. The bathroom is so small the toilet is almost the same place as the basin - although... More

I really liked this hostel. It's small but situated in a very central area and was very quiet when I was there. We had a twin room which was very clean, sufficiently spacious with comfortable beds and an ensuite bathroom with bath. The bathroom was well supplied and the shower was fantastic. There was wifi in the building and a... More

We had a nice room with a shower... Yes, a shower! First I thought it was weird but then I used it and everything fell into place. This was a shower with radio, light inside and multiple shower head from the top and lateral walls. Plus it kinda looks like a time capsule or spacial escape pod. lol Well but... More

We had a family room for 2 nights - single beds, private bath, AC, wifi & breakfast included. Location was great - easy walk to central sites.

Stayed there on a family vacation. It is centrally located near most attractions. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Booked a room with a bathroom. Rooms were a decent size and comfortable. They provide a good breakfast to get you started for the day.

Staying in Centro

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro
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.
