Hostal Los Alpes
Ranked #35 of 428 Speciality Lodging in Madrid
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 February 2016

Hostal Los Alpas, is very conveniently located, just off Gran Via at the point where the Gran Via metro station is located.
It is situated in a pedestrian shopping street in a very nice area. It is very close to Sol and Plaza Mayor (5 and 10 minutes walking).
The roopms are very clean, not very large, but excellent value for money. Breakfast can be taken in the immediate vicinity as there are many snack bars and restaurants nearby. There is bathroom with shower, fridge, television and even a microwave oven in the room.
The only nuisance we experienced was some noise from other people, especially the door bell at the reception at night and some people partying in another room the first night. The WIFI worked fine and is free.

The hostel is on the 3rd and 4th floors but there is a lift. The English of the staff is rather basic.

All in all an excellent choice for a city trip!

Room Tip: Possibly a bit away from the door/reception

Staff antipatic from the first time.
Let us wait 1h hour for our room (we get the room at 1pm, the check in is at 12pm), never ask for apollogise and even said that it was normal, because the check out it's at the same time (what???).

After one bad night sleep because of the hard pillow, I ask for another one, smaller... and the girl say that they don't have... just that ones. But, she was with one room open, with a smaller pillow... I ask for one like that one and she said that can't. So, they really don't care about the costumer, because of that I had another night with bad sleeping...

If I was you... don't book this hotel.

Room Tip: muy mal servicio, no permanecer aquí.

Dear customer
Thank you very much for your instructions.
We always like that customers tell us our positive and negative points and thus continue to improve.
Although we have various types of pillows to the client service, on this occasion, we have not been able to meet tastes by some misunderstanding...
As for check-in say that the rooms are available from 12 pm, not at 12 o'clock. But, thanks to your comment, we have delayed this hour to 13 p.m. to have a greater margin for cleaning.
We are glad that you enjoyed the central location.
Thank you for everything and hope to see you again.
Kind regards

The hostel is in a good situation in Madrid close to Gran Via.
My room this time was small and claustrofobic .The weather was unusually warm and the room was next to a service room with a large water heater.The extractor was right beside my window.I commented on this and was told to turn the radiator off !
Everything was clean and well maintained.The cleaner does a very good job.I did find the pillows and the mattress hard.
The inside rooms face onto a patio where you hear everything that is going on with the neighbours.
The lady on reception desk is efficient but very sparse in words.
One night for me was enough,it served my purpose and the price was reasonable for the centre of Madrid.

Great location in the city center, close to metro station, nicely furnished, clean room and shared bathroom. Good Wi-fi connection. The disadvantage may be that you can hear everything from other rooms.

Room was very clean and very central to everything we wanted to do. Just 1 minute away from Metro stop made travel plans very easy. Street noise was not a problem. There is an amazing glutenfree bakery just around the corner. 5 minute walk to puerta del sol.
