Standard Room
Good Location of everywhere
We used quite a lot of time to locate the hostel in the first day. But after that, we found there are some many good restaurants, bars around the hostel and quite close to everywhere in city. Hostal Keeper is good in manner but we had a difficulty to communicate very well. Room was clean. Hostel is a bit too quiet at night for lady.

Great little hotel
Great location, in walking distance to most things including the Prado. Easy walk from the main train station. Lots of good places to eat nearby. Friendly staff. Rooms small but very clean.

Located very near the Prado, Staff was friendly. Bathroom had been recently upgraded and was OK.
Not really a hotel or even a hostal. No waiting room, it's run out of a small office on 2nd floor of the building. Old, tired facilities both room and public, barely decorated. Room matched the ...

tidy & clean
Clean room
The rooms are tidy, clean and well-equipped. However the location is not very good, you need to walk through some quiet streets at night to get to the hostel, not recommend for female solo traveler. Others are ok.

Clean and comfortable in great location.
Great location, comfortable bed, good shower.
I used to live in Madrid so picked this place based on the location. Normally would go for a more extravagant hotel, but knew on this occasion we would not spend much time there, so just needed a cheap basic place to sleep and shower. Hostal Dulcinea turned out to be perfect in that regard. It reminded me of my old Madrid apartment, was cleaned daily to a good standard, had a very comfortable bed and a good shower with fresh towels and toiletries provided.

Excellent value for money
It was in a good location and the quality of the room/service was absolutely excellent for the price I paid.
I think the walls were a bit thin, so you could here other guests outside but it was not too bad. At least I was not particularly annoyed.

Simple, budget very well located
one of the best regions for tourists in madrid, clean, ac.
Its very clean, simple, budget, well located, have a good air conditioning, very small toilette , the room is big enough. If you look for those hostels with a common area where you can make friends, thats not the one, is good to sleep, take a shower and enjoy the city.

Perfect location, small dated room
Down Town only 5 min. walkingfrom Thyssen, Prada and Plaza's
Low prized dated small room, with all basic requirements in centre of Madrid, warm water supply somewhat irregular, but only there to sleep, shower and shave, good wifi and helpful owner. Plenty restaurants, lots of culture, shops, plaza's and big park for morning jogging, all just around the corner.

Great service with decent rooms
Great location, fast wifi
My only dismay with the hostal is the intermittent flow of hot water. The caretaker of the hostal, Hosae was really nice! He gave us a brief orientation of the hostal and the main attractions around Madrid before leaving us. There was sufficient space, and the room is generally clean.

muy buena relación calidad precio
Sitio centrico y con facilidad de aparacamiento en zona verde, aunque luego cada hora hay que ir a poner dinero; pero sale mucho más rentable que el parking de la zona que son 50 euros día, 5 euros la hora...El hostal, muy limpio. las habitaciones con aire acondicionado. Y el personal muy amable salvo el único hombre que al llegar a las 2,30 de la mañana por volver del teatro y haciendo el menor ruido posible, nos asaltó en calzoncillos en la puerta diciendo que eran las dos de la mañana y no se podían recibir visitas...visitas???y como crees que hemos entrado??.Sinceramente no sé que tipo de gente recibien en ese hostal, pero desde luego con nosotros metió la pata, y no fue para dar una disculpa.
