  • Hostal Santillan was very, very nice for its price. Located on Gran Via, the location can't be beat, and although it is about twice as costly as a traditional hostel, it feels like a little hotel, with all the accommodations you would expect from one. A few members of the staff spoke English, but knowing some Spanish will definitely help. Aside from the slight language barrier, the staff was friendly and helpful. The room itself was very clean, and had a lockable wardrobe and a nice bathroom.

  • The aspect I was mostly delighted for was the good price in relation to the location and environment as well as the services received such as the hospitality and the cleaness both in my individual room and in the common spaces. As secundary thing I also liked the general context I mean the historical building located in one of the most important streets of Madrid, that's not really bad. Definitely I would recommend it and I already did it!

  • The location of the hostel is great. Easy walks to Opera area and Del Sol. Also easy access to Metro. Staff was great on check in and check out - the only times I interacted with them. I'm a solo traveler in my early 50s and booked a private room with own bath. The accommodations are just what you need - clean, safe and comfortable. For those in the same age group as myself, I did see others close to my age. This is on off season, middle of November, so could be different during peak.

  • The room was very small. However, it was clean and the location was right on Gran Via. No breakfast though. It helps to know some Spanish when interacting with the staff.

  • The location is very good, on one of the main streets of Madrid, along a couple of metro stops. The rooms were veryclean and the staff were so very helpful! I would absolutely stay here again when I return to Madrid.

  • I stayed for 1 night and I had no problems at all. The room was clean but basic. However, it was very good value for the price I paid. The staff were very friendly. The location is excellent - right in the center of Madrid. If I was going to Madrid again, I would definitely return to this hostal.

  • Fantastic location, right on Gran Via! The only problem we had was that we didn't have air conditioning, but they provided a fan.

  • My friend and I had really a nice stay here, everything is perfect. It was the first time for my friend to live in a hostel, she said it's just like a hotel. The reception was really friendly and considerate. We booked a double bed private room with own bathroom, very clean. And very quiet at night, if you're looking for some place to have a good rest, I would definitely recommend Santillan.
