As I said in another review, I wish the Spanish tourist authorities would define “hostal” because I stayed in three recently with very different standarrds – one was a fire trap with no lift, shared WC, shower with no privacy or maid service, while another...More
To check in at Hostal Victoria II (HV2) was somewhat cumbersome for we had to go to Hostal Victoria I (HV1), a few doors away. (We accidentally went to Hostal Pretoria which is in the same building). We found the HV1 staff to be very...More

I've been in this hostel with a friend of mine for our birthdays. The hostel is in a very strategic position, 20 meters far from Puerta del Sol, right in the Centre of Madrid. You can move around and visit all Madrid most famous places...More
I've spent 2 nights in this hostal with two friends. The location is great, right in "puerta del sol". The room was clean and comfy. All the staff is very kind and always available.
I would reccomend it for your madrid trip!
Expansive plazas, local and foreign crowds, street performers, colorful lights, window shopping, restaurant signs promising the best paella, ham, and churros con chocolate- this is downtown Madrid, a collection of plazas interconnected by a network of side streets. Some of these side streets are wide pedestrian shopping routes, and some are hidden, so it's possible to duck in and out of the bustle as
desired. The iconic Puerta del Sol is the giant crossroads of the city and a must-see attraction at any time of the day. The nearby Plaza Mayor, completely enclosed by historic red buildings, is an ideal place to grab a bite to eat outside, amidst scores of tables and people out for a stroll. Plaza Isabel II (also known as “Opera”) is smaller and a good meeting spot, and the stately Plaza del Oriente is the front yard of the Royal Palace. Centro can be touristy (pickpockets are unfortuately not unheard-of here), crowded, and sometimes gimmicky, but it is also the place to experience classic Madrid.
