This hostel is perfect for people that are on a low budget. We are embarrassed that we do not have enough Spanish to speak to the owner but her daughter done all the translations for us and we got a private room that suited us...More
It is an old, really run down apartment converted into a cheap hotel. My room was tiny and without any windows, and nothing like the one in the photos—the walls were extremely dirty and it looked more like a prison cell. I could not sleep...More

Spain > Community of Madrid > Madrid > Centro / Sol
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
