It is smack bang in the middle of the city - couldn't get a better location. It is adequate but not luxury. We wished that it had an iron so we could press our clothes.

Hostel Pilar is centrally located just a block of the P;aza del Sol which made for easy walking to many of the downtown Madrid activities and destinations. It is a clean and quiet place to stay with helpful attendants who are available 24 hours a day. While it wasn't too warm, the air conditioning in the room was nice and refreshing.
