Great value for the price.|馃槂 路 Great location. The beds are built around so you have privacy. There is small working station by the reception so you can work from there or from bed. The place is well maintained and clean. Location is perfect just at the entrance of gran via next to chueca.|馃槥 路 Showers - only 2 for all male guests - we were 8 people in the room, 7 guys and there where other rooms sometimes you needed to wait for shower. Additionally the cleaning hours for showers - they cleaned it at 10 am (check out is at 11) thus I almost missed check out time because of this.

Look, this hostel was the cheapest in Madrid at the time I booked it, and my experience reflected this budget-friendly price point. I stayed in an 8 bed mixed dorm and it was fine, I liked that it had privacy curtains, however there wasn't any aircon so it got hot (I can imagine it would be very hot in summer) and the lockers were physical standing metal ones which I found awkward to access sometimes as they were jammed between the beds. I also found the top bunk difficult to get up to and I think this is due to the positioning of the ladder. ||There is a small "kitchen" (microwave and fridge) which was fine for my stay. The problem I had with the common area is that seating wasn't very comfortable and there was very little of it. It would be nice to have somewhere to hang out and relax without having to spend all afternoon in the dorm and this is something they could perhaps work on. ||The bathroom was small but fine. Be warned though that the showers are glass and there is very little privacy here. ||The location, however, is excellent- very close to Gran Via, there were at least 3 supermarkets within walking distance, a fantastic selection of restaurants, and great public transport nearby. ||If you are happy to overlook some of the hostel "luxuries", then this hostel is a fine, budget friendly option. It is not a very social hostel so if that is something you are looking for, you may like to look elsewhere. I will say that the ladies at the reception were lovely and more than happy to help out.
