In the city centre, close to everything, quiet rooms. Only complaint would be the amount of toilets. One needed to queue. But considering the cost 20€? this was very good place. Note that it is in third floor and there is no elevator.
My husband and I stayed at the Babel Guesthouse a total of three nights. The first night was upon our arrival to Spain, and the last two nights were approximately two weeks later right before we left. The accommodation we received was vastly different during...More
We stayed in a 3-bed room. Kitchen and bathroom was to share. We did not use the kitchen because there is no space and nothing to use. Any equipment not available. The bathroom was clean and basic. It is close to all sights. The worst...More

Hip bars and galleries, independent theaters and music venues, young people with tattoos and funky hair, narrow winding streets — this is Malasaña. Near the center, Plaza Dos de Mayo is a gathering of friends outside bars, dog owners, artists under craft tents, and creative types with notebooks and sketchpads on the plaza’s benches. It may not be as neat and tidy as many other parts of the city, but this only adds to
the Malasaña edge. Shops and bars here range from hippie-crunchy to upscale trendy, and on weekends, the streets are bustling around the clock as the nightlife progresses from dinner to bar to disco to late-night food. On the west side of the neighbourhood is the subdistrict called Conde Duque, named after a large pink fort in its center that has been converted into a cultural center for exhibitions and performances. Prettier yet just as edgy, this intimate corner of Malasaña is home to a young international community.
