I stayed in the Hostal for one night in January 2012 and it was overall a positive experience. The location is perfect; within easy walking distance of the city centre and extremely close to Opera metro stop (2 doors left of McDonalds). There is a lift up to the Hostal reception which was a huge bonus and the man on reception was lovely (although I'm not sure how good his English was).
I stayed in a single room facing away from the street so it was very quiet although the view was incredibly uninspiring, consisting of a wall and a few a/c units. The room and bathroom were small but clean and the shower had plenty of hot water and was very powerful.
I couldn't find any sockets to plug my laptop charger into, although that could just have been me not looking hard enough.
There is a computer on the 2nd floor where you can access the internet although it wasn't working on the morning I was there.
The 24hour reception is good and I felt very safe leaving my suitcase in a little side room while I explored Madrid after checking out.
Overall a great bargain in a perfect location, possibly better if you speak some Spanish although the cleaning staff seemed to speak pretty good English.
