Spent two nights at Hostal Besaya thanks to its strong reviews on this site and was not disappointed. Location is ideal, just off of Gran Via close to the Callao and Plaza de Espana metro stops, so it requires one train change coming from the bus station and 2 from the airport (but the Madrid metro system is very easy...

I stayed for 2 nights and I would stay here again! The location is great, the staff is really friendly and helpful, and the rooms are really clean. They have a public lounge with a vending and coffee machine, and a really nice view over the city. Due to the central location, can be a bit noisy at night if...

We stayed at this Hostal for 4 nights & enjoyed every exciting minute Madrid that to offer. We could not have asked for a better location & it is SO central that you almost fall onto the Gran Via! The staff are welcoming & friendly but I will point out that although they advertise English speaking staff only one girl...

Stayed here two nights recently. The rooms are very basic and quite small, typical of an older mid-city Europeon hotel. The staff was quite friendly and helpful in providing directions, etc. They stored our luggage as we arrived early morning and allowed us to check in earlier in the day than their policy. Very clean and great central location to...

My husband and I spent one night here in December 2011. Hostal Besaya has a great location and makes it easy to walk to various sights, or hop on the metro. The hostel staff were very nice and accommodating. We arrived before check in, but were allowed immediate access to our room. We spent 2 weeks in Spain and I...

I stayed in this hostal in december 2011. I stayed in a privat room with private bath. The room wasn't very big, but surely big enough to spend the night and spread out clothing.

This was my first time staying in a hostal and I was pleased that I picked the Hostal Besaya. The hostal is located on the 8th floor of a very elegant looking building right on the Gran Via and Calle de San Bernardo with a metro station on the opposite corner which makes getting around Madrid very easy. There is...

Good location right off of Gran Via and close to Plaza Sol and Plaza Mayor. Good value for the price. I travel on a tight budget. Staff speaks little English so don't expect much in the way of tourist advice.

First things first: Keep in mind that this is a hostal and not a five-star-hotel. If you want a big breakfast, conference rooms and a pool, this is not for you. If you want a comfortable room in a very central location to relax from your excursions through lively Madrid, it is 100% perfect. LOCATION Could it be any more...

A simple and clean hostal - a perfect place if you are after somewhere to sleep and are more keen about hitting the pavement and walking around the beautiful city of Madrid. In a great location, we were very happy with this hostal for the price. Our room was clean, quite small but still had a private bathroom and air-conditioning....

Staying in Malasana

Neighbourhood Profile
Malasana
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.
