We would recommend not to carry valuable objects with you since our door did not close well. the room was noisy, since walls were extremely thin and we could hear people conversation next door. clean bathrooms. nice and helpful personnel. very good location close to everything.

It is what it says on the tin. Excellent location for central Madrid and the gay/party district. The place is extremely basic but clean. My room was on the top floor, I was a bit surprised that it was windowless - only a small window above the door looking onto the corridor. The corridor itself was overlooking an inner courtyard, so there was no noise from the street.

However earplugs are highly recommended because the walls are very thin so you hear everything every time someone comes back and opens/closes door. Also slippers or flipflops in which you can go out to the bathroom.

All in all, when you are out exploring the city and only go to the room to sleep, it is sufficient. The free wifi worked fine and was very efficient. Just one warning for those adventurous types who might go out with the intention of hooking up, in this hostal (and I suspect, generally), you are not allowed to bring back guests to your room.

Great place to stay, clean and simple. The building is a little old, but it's fine. Really nice staff, and great location near Gran via and the subway. We had a great experience!
The next time I'll certainly stay there.

I stayed in the hostal Machin from the 18th of August in a private room. It was a fine place to stay, I've stayed in better but I've also stayed in worse places. The location is perfect, less than a minutes walk from the Gran Via metro station. The first time walking down the street I couldn't find the building because they only have a tiny sign over the intercom, but if you look at the building numbers instead you shouldn't have any problems. The street itself can seem with kinda seedy - I'm not sure if the women hanging around were prostitutes or not - but it's very safe. The staff were fine, it seems to be one guy working at reception, but he was helpful when I needed directions.

The bad things about this place are that they don't have much of a communal area. There is a terrace for smoking but that closes at 10pm. The worst thing was that I didn't have a window in my room. They have fans over the head of the bed, but at night some natural ventilation would have been nice.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a window

I have stayed at Hostal Machin a number of times, and it never fails to deliver. The hostal is very very central - 2 mins from Gran Via metro station - and is located in a pleasant old-style Madrid apartment building. The first thing you'll notice is how immaculately clean it is kept. It seems all of the rooms have a sink and some have showers too. The beds are comfy with crisp white sheets and fluffy white towels. The shared bathroom (not sure if some rooms have their own bathroom) is scrupulously clean and spacious. There is a truly amazing terrace on the upper floor from which you can look over Madrid's rooftops and enjoy a beer or glass of wine. All of the staff are very pleasant and could cope with my almost non-existent Spanish. The hostal is literally minutes from bars of Cheuca but it has none of the seedier look of some of the hostals that are on top of noisy bars. Hostal Machin is not to be missed - excellent value, friendly, spotlessly clean and a real haven of rest in a big, brash and gutsy city - I love it!!
