We picked this as it is walking distance from the main station. Nice little find. Very basic but well maintained and clean. Friendly staff. Internet good in common areas, flakey in our room. No tea or coffee or mini bar but didnt expect it for the price. Good eating and drinking nearby.

Basic but very clean room, good security with buzz in system. we arrived on thursday left on saturday am was kept busy throughout as the hotel is in the heart of the city (for us) within walking distance of the railway station and main attractions.

We spent a weekend there. Location is really excellent on Atocha Road which leads to the Centre ( Plaza Mayor). Madrid is a running city - people are everywhere, each doorway is a tapas bar or restaurant:-) Railway station is 10mins walk from the hotel. Room was on 1st floor. It was supertiny-a doublebed and we cannot move at all.... More

We stayed for a week at San Blas, and I can confirm some of the complains: the rooms are not very large and the sound level can be irritating at times. But it only takes one night to get used to it and then you will see the good side of this place. The location is really good specially if... More

The first thing welcoming us at the hotel was a giant bug! The recepsionist was so calm to see that. I think it is very usual to see a bug there. Told us that it was from outside! Surely they come from outside but why?? The room was not so clean at all. The blanket at the room had stains... More

Stayed for 3 nights in March. As others have said it can be noisy so if you are a light sleeper you may wish to look elsewhere, I am not so the noise wasn't really a problem for me. The location is good, about 15-20 mins walk to Plaza Mayor and 5-10 mins from Caixa Forum and Prado Museum. The... More

We chose this hostel because of the location. It was perfect since it was a 7 mins walk to Atocha Renfe, 2 min walk to Atocha subway and it was about a 20 mins walk to plaza mayor which is the centre of Madrid. The staff spoke english and was very helpful. The room was clean but the bathroom a... More

The location is great but everything else here isn't. The rooms are small and you can here everything going on in the hotel. At the ground floor are some restaurant and the smell of food is everywhere in the building. If you don't have any other solution than is a good place to sleep one or two nights

pros: Very cute entrance, great value for money, friendly helpful receptionist, clean rooms. cons:The paper thin walls eg. we could hear the neighbor hanging his clothes and you could have sworn he was in our room. Cigarette burns in the duvet.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
