Very nice hostel. Clean, comfortable, with an extremely helpful staff. Furniture is essential, but functional and very well care about by the staff. Location is also extremely good for visiting the city, as you're right in the middle of Calle Gran Via. The only negative note is the lack of breakfast, as they do not have an area suitable to...

Stayed at Sanitllan with my wife and 2 young daughters in a triple-bed room (for 70 euro/night). The location on Gran Via is perfect for walking and for metro connections up to Barajas. On the 7th floor there were no noise issues at all. Also, no issue of cigarette smell mentioned in other reviews. On the contrary, this is one...

A basic, but good place to stay in Madrid. It would have been nice to have air conditioning, a computer with Internet, and news channels on the tv, though. No great eating spots around.

this hostal has a great location in madrid and it's very close to the center as well as a few metros. The room was clean enough, overall everything was good. service was great.

stayed here for a weekend two weeks ago after reading the great reviews written here. I have to say that I do not agree at all. My main problem with the place was the strong and lingering smell of stale cigarette smoke in the hostal. Neither I nor my boyfriend smoke so we noticed this immediately. We tried to get...

We’re really very sorry of having that problem happened. We can guarantee that our room cleaners do not smoke while cleaning rooms. It could be that the previous occupants of that room were smokers. We all know that the smell of cigarette smoke stayed longer and enters in every parts of the room. Probably room cleaner have forgotten to have...

Went to Madrid with a friend where we stayed in one of the rooms with two twin beds and a private bathroom. The place was clean and fit our needs. We stayed on the 8th floor overlooking the main street (Gran Via). The only thing I would reccomend is that if you are a light sleeper to take earplugs and...

You never know about a hostal, unfortunately, but Hostal Santillan was a clean, inexpensive place in the heart of Madrid. My two friends and I stayed in a triple room for three nights. It seemed right in the middle of everything, which was nice. We got there and went up the the hostal. The building houses a few other hostals...

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
