Very good value for price. Staff were very helpful and polite. Customer service was excellent. Overall a pleasant stay. Would recommend.

Give this a Miss
The hostel offers only a bed and very basic facilities, if you're ok with that then this is ideal for you. The walls are paper thin, so you can hear everything that is going on in the hallway and neighbouring bedrooms. The toilet was so close to the sink that I had to sit on it sideways. Don't take the breakfast option, it's only coffee and dried toast. I asked a room with shower facilities and that is what I got but it hadn't been cleaned properly, so I found body hair (I'll leave it your imagination from which part of the body) on the wall. All in all there are better option out there, I suggest you pass on this one and take your chances else where.

Great value, friendly and very convenient
Great value hotel less than a minute walk from Gran Via Metro station. Excellent free wifi and the bonus of a 'help yourself' breakfast (cereal bars, yoghurt, pan au chocolat, croissants, coffee and juice) served till 11.30- set us up for the day! 12 o'clock check out was handy too. Only downsides; not much natural light in our room( not really a problem as we used the room as a base to explore the city) the bathroom was a little worn and the walls were quite thin - not a problem for us but might be for others. Apart from a little neighbour noise ( the odd cough and bang of door) our room was set at the back so no street noise - really quiet. Our hosts were really friendly and check in was perfect. I would definitely return!

Very Good8.0
Really helpful staff, clean room! Perfect for a cheap hotel, obviously you get what you pay for so don't expect too much, but we had no problems with it. Only thing was breakfast was a bit naff and probably would be better off going to the supermarket and getting a loaf of bread. Overall though would recommend.

Would return
Excellent location and price. Equivalent to being two minutes walk from Oxford Street. Two minutes from metro. Staff very helpful. Very clean. Continental breakfast from 8.30am. Good cafe almost next door if you need an alternative. Cons shower too small and difficult to use. Check it. Take something to boil water if you want a drink as nothing provided. Thin walls.
