Excellent location, clean, cheap, nice staff
The place is spotless and at an excellent location. It's quite literally off the Plaza del Sol (which has a subway station and a commuter train station). The lady at the front desk was super nice, which is honestly refreshing as Spaniards have a very different idea of customer service in comparison to what we have in the US. Back to the hostel, the room is quaint and clean, the wifi works (although I didn't test the speed I was watching netflix to fight the jetlag at 4 AM). The rooms are small but don't expect anything different for the price and location. Definitely would stay here again for a day or two. I was staying in a private bedroom with bathroom.

Alright for the price
Hotel is okay. The pros are great location, price and cleanliness. But this isn’t a fancy hotel so don’t expect too much.

Right for the price
I was spending just one night in Madrid and would only be sleeping in my hotel. So, I wanted something inexpensive, convenient and clean. It was under $50 and all of those. But the walls are paper thin so I could hear conversations word for word and the tv’s picture was only acceptable. But again, it was the right price, very clean and there was no noise at night while I slept.
