Great three days in Madrid
The stay was nice and pleasant. Great location just two blocks away from Gran Vía. The only inconvenience was the lack of an elevator, the stairs were a bit uncomfortable. Not a big deal for me but it was for my 67 years old mother. Aside from that, I would recommend it. It’s right for the price.

Arty party trip topper!
La Dolce Vita is a lovely place to stay - vibrant, funky and great location. Tasty self-serve breakfast with rocket fuel coffee. Lovely secret roof terrace away from the bustle and steps from Plaza Paulo Zerolo with cafes and bars, performers from breakfast to late night cocktails - but all closes at 130am to aid a restful sleep! Highly recommend!!

Fantastic little place to stay
I had a really good time in Madrid and the room provided everything it needed to: a good location and a place to sleep at night. The breakfast was a little limited but that was a minor inconvenience. There's a bit of a climb up the stairs to get there so maybe don't book if you have a pram/you are not very mobile.

Good, clean hostel with breakfast
Location was excellent as was the service. The only problem was we had to carry our suitcases up 3 steep flight of stairs.
Logeswari, sg2 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Good value for money
Caution: there is no lift and it’s in the 3rd floor (that’s the fourth if your American). Nice enough for a hostel; en suite bath which was nice. It’s in the heart of the gayborhood, so lots of people out at night. It’s walking distance from the Art Museum Triangle, but be sure to use a maps app - Madrid is a maze and it’s easy to get turned around. Friendly staff, but elles no hablar Ingles, so polish up your espanol. Small room but had a ceiling fan. Breakfast included, but it’s minimal. No coffee/tea in the room.
Nicholas, us2 night trip
Fair 4.0
Poor service from reception when we were trying to check in, was brushed off and treated rudely when trying to drop bags off before room was ready. Room remained not ready when we returned at the time the reception told us to come back. Toilet in room was not working. Decent WiFi.
