We stayed four nights in a triple room (w/shared bathroom) that faced the street...not too loud at all. The room looked nothing like the photos on their website; there was neither a plasma TV nor charming decor as described. In fact the room looked very tired and needed a lift. The beds were quite soft and uncomfortable and there was very little space to move around in the room.
On a positive note, the free WI-fi worked very well, the computer room supplied both Macs and PCs, there was a tiny lift that was most convenient for carting our luggage up to the 3rd floor and the shared bathrooms were always impeccably clean.
The reception speaks almost no English, but my partner is Spanish so language was not a barrier like it was for many of the other reviewers.
It was very easy to reach the hotel by metro from the airport and there is also a taxi stand located 2 mins away at the plaza. The photos other reviewers posted on Trip Advisor were instrumental in recognizing the location...which leads me to the best part of the Hostal Luz...it's centrally located within walking distance to all the major attractions which made it very easy to pop back to the hostal for a siesta before heading out for the evening!
One more note...the included breakfast at the restaurant around the corner consists of a coffee/tea and a croissant or pan con tomate. Be warned that the service staff there are unbelievably rude to everyone, so don't take it personally.
Despite all the not so perfect moments, this did not spoil our second visit to Madrid, however we would not choose to return here on our next visit, as there are many other hostals to try. A more accurate rating would be 3.5/5.
