Well there are only one or 2 positive things I would mention about this hostel, the rest is awful.. OK let me start from the thing that Staff doesn't speak English, they never understood what you meant, or wanted. Only one woman who could speak a bit English. Well let's say this is not a problem. There is no normal... More

Not the best hostel to recommend. No one speaks english at the reception and it takes for ages to make them understand what you want. If you are with friends they ask you to keep quite all the time. Breakfasts are poor and the person/s in the kitchen always keep eye on how many bread you took & how many... More

The hostel is clean and good located (near Gran Vía) but The attention is AWFULL!!! They are all really disrespectful. They are not willing to help you at all. When you need something they tell you that you should go back later. One night we were in the living room watching tv, we moved two chairs and the woman who... More

From the comments I found on the internet, I expected the worse. In the end, I found myself in a decent youth hostel, quiet and clean and with personnel which was for the majority nice. Breakfast wasn't delicious but ok (we could go for refills). The location is interesting too. I went for a jogging in the nearby parque del... More

The Albergue Juvenil Santa Cruz de Marcenado in Madrid's Argüelles neighborhood is just what the name promises: a good old youth hostel. That means they offer you a bed, a warm shower, a little something to fill the stomach in the morning and someplace to wash your clothes. But that's it. How did I end up in jail? The breakfast...

There is no social setting here , no drinking no noise no fun at all ,rooms are new but I would trade no noise for friendly people and a little loss of sleep . It's a gray backpacker factory sleep and leave ..

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.
