I was apprehensive about staying in a hostel. The Pretoria changed my perception. Super location right at the Plaza del Sol. Felt very safe. Very nice hosts. Rooms were extremely clean. Good windows. Quiet. Only negative--hair dryer did not work. Must pay 1 euro to use room safe. I would definitely stay here again when in Madrid. Note that all rooms are furnished differently. Not sure if there is AC.
