My first stay in a hostel. My room was smaller than others described in these reviews, but adequate as I wasn't planning on spending a lot of time there. No fridge, but safe that you pay 1 Euro each time you use it. The woman at the front desk didn't speak english but we were able to communicate by my very minimal spanish and her gestures.

It overlooked the courtyard so there was no noise coming from the streets, despite that there is a dance club around the corner. However, there is no sound proofing within the hostel. It was as if my door was open. I was the room farthest away from the front desk, but heard every conversation there. The rooms next to me as well as mine do not close quietly due to the door frame being slightly smaller than the door, so it can only slam close. Small stand-up shower. My room was clean.

I've seen other hostels in the area but don't know how they compare. Great central location, can walk almost anywhere and is steps to the metro if needed to go farther.

We are staying here tonight (9-19-2911) and it is a great little hotel. It is about 200 meters or so from the Opera metro stop. We flew into Madrid and took three metro trains to get to the Opera stop. The hotel check in in on the 1st floor landing (you come in on the 0th floor(?). The door is labeled "CH" for some reason. Anyway, there is a lift although you can only get one person and luggage in at a time -quite amazing actually.

The rooms are very small but very clean and plenty of hot water. Everything just sparkles. They have a coffee vending machine in the hallway. They have all the lights on motion detectors to conserve energy so you are walking down the hall and the list come on as you walk. Air conditioner works great.

The hotel is about three blocks from Plaza Major and the Mercado de San Miguel. Got to hit that place for lunch! And a couple of great restaurants right next door. Perfect place for exploring downtown Madrid! Pre-booked on Internet for 53euros for the night.

My first experience of staying in a 'hostal' in Spain and would thoroughly recommend this one - not sure what people were expecting in some of the more negative reviews I read on here - I paid £33 a night so it's never going to be the ritz but good points:

Location - excellent, 30 seconds from opera metro station - if you follow the instructions on the hostal website no reason at all why you wouldn't find it. So close to local bars, shops, cash machine, sights, etc.
Cleanliness - the place was spotless, cleaned every day, clean towels,etc.
Friendliness - on check in, owner spoke excellent English, showed me to my room and how to use key card to get into the hostal - all other staff I met were very polite and friendly.

Yes, the room was small but had everything you needed, wardrobe, small fridge, bedside cabinet, lovely big shower, television, safe - true if you had a massive suitcase you would struggle to find place for it but I didn't have that problem.

There was a computer to use in the lobby - free of charge I think, 2 drinks machines plus some sofas and chairs/tables in the communal areas which might be handy if travelling in a group.

All in all a great place to stay for a few nights in Madrid - would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: I overlooked the courtyard - no noise, excellent night's sleep.

Our first meeting with s Spanish hostal was a good one. Hostal Las Fuentes offers good clean and affordable accommodation in the centre of Madrid. Aircon (much needed in the summer) was working great and the room was equipped with Flat screen TV, nice bathroom (a little small but with a tub), WIFI/public PC, minibar and a bed suitable for two not too big people.

The hostal is however rather hard to find as no signs are posted and the Hostal is situated at 1-2 floor in a building that looks like a residential building with shops at street level. The entrance is a large brown wooden door (No. 10). At the left is series of door bells (apparently several Hostals are situated in the building). Hit the button that says "Las Fuentes" and the door can be opened. Take the stairs (a very small elevator is also available) and go to 1st floor. The chances are that the reception staff does only speak very little English. But the reception clerk was very nice and even showed us to our room and our stay worked out fine.

Notice. Parking in central Madrid is as in most European capitals rather expensive. If you park for several days - look around - many parking buildings are available in the area and prices varies a lot.
