Location is the only positive thing about this hostal

Would not recommend Sat, Aug 23, 2014
Staff does not speak a word of English. No room to swing a cat despite being a family room. no closet space to speak of. Shower cubicle door fell on me. Air condition was leaking to the extent that a huge puddle appeared under the single bed and soaked through suitcase which was stored there and in the meanwhile my child got drenched with dripping water as bed was located under the air condition vent. Long flights of stairs which was quite grim and smelt odd. Shocked that this travel agents would associate themselves with this hostel and gave it 3 stars!


Good value tourist bus for 2 days. Great trip to the Real Madrid Stadium

Recommended for value and location

Would recommend Sat, Jul 14, 2012
Although difficult to get around the bed to the couch, the room was very nice, with convenient fridge & microwave and free amenities. I was unprepared for the 4 stories of steps to carry all my luggage, but the hostel is midway up the building. The staff were pleasant with some basic attention the first day, but then it's a nice hostel, not a hotel. Location was VERY central and easy to walk to most major sites. Given the location & that it was only $66US per night & included breakfast and internet, I thought the value was well worth it!

Time saver

I recommend a 2 day Hop On Hop Off for best value and a general orientation to the central Madrid area. After that, I know where most attractions were and could get there pretty easily on foot.

Great stay - I'll stay there again!

Would recommend Tue, Apr 3, 2012
The staff were very accommodating, and anything I needed [which was not much] was gladly managed. The breakfast provided was basic, but also was sufficient enough to be able to take with and sustain me for well into the afternoon. And the room, itself, felt safe and secure, with the one issue being the noise - not so much from the outside, but you could hear everything the other guests were doing. Fortunately, as a frequent traveler, I always have earplugs and melatonin in my luggage. I wanted to also emphasize that the staff was very pleasant and kind to deal with. I emphasize this because I noticed on Trip Adviser that they were excoriated as being rude and unprofessional; nothing could be further from the truth. I have to wonder if those travelers may have been up to something untoward and other customers complained, requiring a reprimand. My experience was nothing like that. They were great!


Go see Templo Debod, located behind the Museo Cerralbo, which I also highly recommend. Museo del Prado and the Thyssen-Bornemisza are also high on my list. As for getting around, DO NOT RENT A CAR! You will find few places to park it and those spots you find will be REALLY spendy!

Great Stay!

Would recommend Tue, Feb 16, 2010
The hostal is very close to the metro which connects you to anything you want to do in the city. There are many places to eat and lively nightlife within walking distance. There are many sights to see within a 15 minute walk or a short bus/metro ride. The location seems sketchy but the rooms are very nice. However, I arrived late because of my flight and I wasn't able to check in until the next day so it left me scrambling to find another hotel nearby. If you plan on arriving late, I would recommend letting them know ahead of time because there is no front desk to check-in at. Besides that, I really enjoyed my stay at Hostal Oxum and would recommend it!
