Stayed 6 nights in April. Took the airport bus to Cibeles and then walked 15 minutes slightly uphill on Gran Via dragging a big bag. Street Fuencarral is on the right just before the huge Telefonica store, pedestrian lane, the entrance at No.17 is just...More
I was here for the last week of Oktober. I was very pleasantly surprised at how clean and nice to rooms are. For a two-star hotel the rooms are amazing. They are clean, have working AC, there is also a mini-fridge as well as a...More
It was a very clean and nice place.. The best is that it is very near to the main Gran Via street and few mins walk to the city centre(Sol).
Lot of options for eating and shopping nearby.. I will definitely recommend
The location is amazing
The reception chick didn't knew English and was very rude .
Room small and extremely little shower
Was nice just for one night
Not recommend at all.
Also when we asked from the girl in the reception a remote for the...More
Exactly what we were looking for. Great location by Gran Via metro, room was very clean and beds very comfy. Also there was very little noise despite its central location. Would recommend to anyone on a budget in Madrid.
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.

Hi Maria, I wouldn t say it's unsafe as this a pedestrian street and the area is full of people, almost at any hour. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, etc I'm a young woman and did not feel uncomfortable walking around the area even at 2am.
However, a couple of hundred meeters from the hostel (after the intersection) after 8-9 pm, there are prostitutes on the street, who are obviously dressed more provocative (prostitution is not illegal in Spain).
Hope that helps!
