Fantastic location, however we got charged €390 for a double bed in a small room that I had to share with my 16 yr old daughter. This was due to it being champions league final. But the price still outrageous for a basic room. ☹️☹️

Hostal Gala is perfect choice for young travellers. It's situated in a couple of minutes from Gran Via, within walking distance from liveliest Gran Via, and Malasana communities. The Team has very high hospitality standards, and are sincerely welcoming and helpful as if you were staying at their own place. Highly recommended!

my husband and i stayed here for two nights in november 2012. while it was a bit small, we were very happy with the cleanliness of the room, and we had everything we needed. best of all was the location at santo domingo plaza. we literally walked everywhere in old madrid during our stay and didn't need any other transport except to and from the airport. perfect for budget travelers who want to be in the thick of things.

Great location but small rooms”

Great location

The hotel occupies 1 entire floor of a building which is shared with other tenants. There is a lift which would take you up. The hotel is well-situated with 2 different metro lines within walking distance. I booked a double room, it was small but cozy. As it was a short stay and I had intended to spend most of my time outside, the room size was irrelevant. The room was clean though. If you intend to take a taxi to the hotel, I would suggest that you print out the address of the hotel and not all taxis would know the location as it is on a small street. Also, it may be useful to google maps the location of the hotel as the hotel signage is small and not very obvious. As the room rates are cheap, I think expectations should be adjusted accordingly. It is afterall a 1 star hotel. The room does not come with a safe or fridge but there are vending machines outside in the lounge area. Wifi is free but does get patchy in the rooms. If you need wifi, you can always walk out to the lounge area. They offer free muffins and biscuits with a vending machine that has coffee and tea in the mornings. Reception was extremely helpful. Although there is no taxi station near the hotel, you can flag one off the street in front of the hotel. Rooms that are located facing the reception and vending machines area could be noisy as they see more human traffic. In all, I would stay in this hotel again if I was on a tight budget.

not as good as i expect”

centrally located, fast check in and out, staff speak good english

the room i booked said it's 28 sq meter, but the room i stayed in was much smaller. the bed was slighted tilted, it's not comfortable to keep rolling to one side of the bed while sleeping. bathroom was small, the toilet bowl is set one step higher than the floor - for people with short legs, when they sit on it, their legs would be just hanging in the air. -.- hotel surroundings wasn't that nice. the park on the street is noisy, even it's late at night. the air conditioner wasn't working too well as well. opening the windows and feel the natural air is even better than turning on the air conditioner in the room. argh! it's good to have an automatic laundry shop nearby. compared with 5 euro per kg in hostal gala, doing the laundry in the shop in personal is much cheaper (9 euro for both washing and drying for 12 kg of clothes). it's good to have this shop nearby for the long-trip travellers. i won't recommend this hostal; though i admitted that i was attracted by their pictures of simple designs of hostal and seems-to-be large rooms. there are other better options in the area nearby.
