Centric Hostel / El hostal centrico”
- Good location of hostel BUT smell in room insoportable. There were full of smell cigaretts. It wasn't possible to stay in the room / La localización buena PERO el olor de los cigarillos era insoportable no era posible quedarse en el quarto - Staff was nice/ tv and wifi working / el personal bueno / la tele y wifi bueno - I do not recommend room 340 / no recomiendo el cuarto 340 - lift only to second floor - rooms located in higher levels and you need to use stairs inside hostel / el ascensor solo para la 2a planta las habitaciones están localizados en las plantas más altas pero tienes que usar las escaleras interiores

Clean and practical”
Location, facilities are well kept and rooms are cleaned daily, Wifi
Besides the fact that my little room was very dark and a little depressing because the only window was into a dark courtyard; I had a lovely stay. I was out all day and upon my return the receptionist on duty at all hours was always very friendly and my room was always clean. The location was great, with many quaint bars and restaurants surrounding it as well as having the Sol metro station just a minutes walk away. It was the perfect rest point between my tours and long city wanders allowing me to pop up to my room to freshen up between outings. At night the streets were always buzzing and clubs were in walking distance. But the hostel itself was very quiet and I slept well every night. I loved the free wifi too. Next time I'd want a room with a view if possible.

Good hostel but staff not receptive”
location, cleanliness, night staff able to speak English
Suppose be good but the boss of the hostel was not so helpful since he did not offer to help luggage carrying. I booked the hostel online at least one week beforehand and requested specific single room I like but ended up in a room (in another block) which was far from the reception. The night staff was friendly and able to speak English fluently but not the rest.

Practico”
Está muy cerca de la puerta del sol, de limpieza está bien, pegas, el baño casi no coge una persona, la habitación era para cuatro y aunque estaba limpia y eso no me gustó, no era una habitación sino un pasillo en forma de ele y las camas estaban colocadas a lo largo de el,en petición a la hora de hacer la reserva en peticiones les comunique que uno de nosotros teniamos claustrofobia que si era posible que fuese una habitación exterior, me ignoraron y me metieron en un pasillo con puerta y una ventana a un patio pequeño y oscuro, solo mi mujer y yo sabemos lo que costó que mi hijo consiguiera dormirse,y la tele como era un pasillo en ele solo podia verse desde
