Nice clean hostel, tiny rooms, but very well taken care of, wireless works as advertised. Unfortunately the walls are made of proverbial cardboard, and there is noise on the street (and in the hostel, I might add) at all hours of the night. That is the only thing that could be found wrong with the place though. Personnel does not speak (any) English.

Nuestra Senora de Sonsoles is in the middle of a nice shopping area, near to the Grand Via and the important metrolines. The hotelkeeper only speaks Spanish, but is very friendly and willing to help. There is a nice Wifi area outside the room.

What a bargain!.This spotlessly clean hostal couldn't have been in a better position. Only a few minutes walk to Puerta del Sol and Plaza Major. Plenty of breakfast places nearby-- recommend Xanachuk, around the corner. 2 metro stations within a few minutes walk too!Would definitely use again.

Hotel is located just off Gran Via on a pedestrianised shopping street with cafes and bars.Close to all the major sights of Madrid. A liitle difficult to find. Friendly staff but obviously Spanish speaking so a little knowledge of the language is helpful.

We stayed 3 nights at Sonsoles and although we had booked a double room, we were provided with a twin room. Not a big deal, so we decided not to complain or request a new room. The room was spacious enough for two people feel comfortable. However, we would appreciate a little more space in the bathroom (smaller than the one in the photos). The great thing about Sonsoles is its location: only one minute away from the Gran Via station, and at a walking distance from lots of bars, cafes and Puerta del Sol. It is located on a pedestrian commercial street, that although its lack of movement at late hours, does not produce a insecure feeling at all. A fair hostal for Madrid, considering the relation price x quality.

The good bits first: 1. the location is fantastic, very central and walking distance to every main parts of Madrid (5 min to la Plaza Sol, 10 min to plaza Mayor, seconds away to Chueca etc). 2. Walking up the stairs (the hostel is on the 2nd floor with lift), it felt like we were going into someone's home. 3. For the price we paid (53euros a night), we expected much worse but the room came with flatscreen TV, A/C (which we didn't use), spacious bathroom etc. The negative points: 1. the interior is a little tired (communal spaces and rooms) and the people working there won't go out of their ways to help you. 2. the internet was extremely slow and very temperamental (do not rely on it as I gave up after while). I would recommend this hostel if like us, you are likely to spend minimum time in the room and mostly out and about visiting or partying. With the triple glazing windows (double glazing plus an extra window), the noisy street (a pedestrian street VERY popular, especially on Fridays and Saturdays) is completely blocked out.

This hostal is good value for money and located in an excellent part of Madrid. You are close to everything. The rooms are clean and not too small with full bathrooms. I was not happy, however, with the two men who worked the reception desk. They were almost unbelievably reserved. The didn't speak any English but didn't attempt to smile or greet us in any language!

The hotel room was okay. The three people that worked behind the counter they were Rude (evening shift) Ruder (day shift) and Rudest(night shift)made our stay interesting. My theory is that the owner does not treat his employees very nicely and they pass it on to the customer but whatever it is We will not be back to that place again and that is the only hotel out of 9 places we stayed over a 3 week holiday that we would not return too.

Hostal Nuestra Senora de Sonsoles is and excellent place to stay in Madrid. Rooms are spacious, air-conditioned, very clean and recently seemed to have been refurbished. The windows are noise-proof and provide very efficient isolation from the street noise. Bathroom is also large, renovated and clean.The hotel is quite close (5-10 min. walk) to the center of the city and several metro stations. Prices are reasonable. The staff is very nice and helpful, although some knowledge of basic Spanish would make the life of the traveler easier.

Good value. Close to city center, few minutes walking. Very convenient to get from the airport as the hotel is situated between the Tribunal and the Gran Via metro stop. Staff was friendly, room was clean and quiet. Window to courtyard, no view but we haven't spent much time in the hostal so didn't mind. Overall if you need quiet and clean room to stay overnight this hostal offers excellent value.

We were traveling with our two teenage sons and daughter. The hotel was nicely located. We took the metro at the corner of Fuencarral and Gran Via, about 200 m from the hotel building. We found a very nice and close place to have breakfast and another to have excellent tapas for dinner. It is in an excellent location, not expensive and very clean.

Rooms were air conditioned and quite tidy. All amenities plus glasses in the bathroom. A little difficult to find since it's in the middle of a shopping area. No one spoke English making it a little difficult to get information. No problems getting in after dark, there is a lift and area is completely safe. Some good and inexpensive tapas bars close by. Would stay here again.
