When we read the comments we were in doubt because the hostel was described badly. Whoever wrote the reviews was certainly very strict and had no sense of adaptability. In fact the prices were cheap and the room was little but comfortable and clean. It is family buisiness and the owners are kind and heplfull even if they can only... More

We've just come back from a 5 night stay at Hostal Santa Barbara and I feel I had to write this review to offset the negative comments I read about the hostel on Trip Advisor. When we read the negative review, we had already booked and we were so shocked that we were about to cancel our booking. Fortunately in... More

This might seem like a normal hostel but it is not. Location is good but it is basically a place where women of the night do their business. It is extremely noisy with comings and goings (of all kinds) all night. I talked to the owners and they simply did not care. Their appearance on web sites looks quite good... More

Staying in Chueca

Neighbourhood Profile
Chueca
Chueca is the hip, gay neighbourhood of Madrid where many of the streets are narrow and intimate, but where the hustle and bustle and the eclectic storefronts and people give it a distinctly urban feel. The main thoroughfare is Calle Hortaleza and the main square is Plaza Chueca, completely filled with terraza tables serving copas (mixed drinks) during summer. A mixture of trendy and grungy, some of the adult businesses here are explicitly racy in their signage. From the rainbow flags to the signs above the entrances of its many funky bars, to the date spot restaurants, Chueca is a vibrant and colorful place. It's always interesting to explore the different corners of Chueca by day, and by night, the area becomes a major nightlife destination when the clubs open their doors.

“Single rooms very small, double room was quite a bit bigger”

“For sun & view onto the street and plaza, ask for rooms at the front. For silence - ask for rooms looking into the "well" - though it will be gloomy then.”
