We stayed for a week in May at the Dulcinea.....the location cannot be beat for access to the Prado and other museums in the area. The Dulcinea is clean, well run, the rooms are small, there is plenty of hot water, there is wifi but it can be a bit spotty. The staff are very friendly and helpful and go out of there way to assist you. There is a small but efficient elevator. The rooms do have AC, which we did not need. The windows are double glazed, so it minimizes street noise, we had some noise but it was manly from other residents who tend to slam doors. No restaurant but many in very close proximity.

Quaint hostel close to the Madrid city centre Small but clean and comfortable Great shower with plenty of hot water The double bed with bed side tables fills most of the main room Storage cabinet and a wall safe as well Windows open to a central atrium for fresh air We didn’t use the air conditioner An ancient lift silently whisked us to and from our level Our host Jose could not do enough to help us The cafe next door was convenient for breakfast
A selection of Tapas Bars and Cafes nearby and an easy walk to the central square
Highly recommended

This place is clean with quite a smart classic interior. Good shower and a comfy bed, just what you need. Nothing to do with the hostel but there was a crazy person up above who moved the furniture each evening and had the alarm on their phone laying on the floor which is a bit annoying at 6am.

Dulcinea is in a very good location. About a 15-20 minute walk to the train station and about 10 to the Plaza del Sol. Very close to the major art museums. And, literally half a block from Rick Steves' recommended tapas row on Calle de Jesus. Room size is good. Elevator access. Staff is helpful. Plenty of hot water and pressure. No problems with wifi connection.

First of all the location is perfect, you can walk anywhere you want. Besides, hostel staff is far from being professional, the hostel is on first and second floors of a building, owner of the hostel gives you room keys and goes away at nights, if something goes wrong there isn't anyone you can even communicate. They come early in the morning and love to talk loud with mobile phone or each other and as you can guess the walls are paper like. When we open the windows, all of the food smell from other apartments was in our room. The bathroom is old but okay. Wifi was pain, it is slow, connection loses regularly. The buildings elevator is older than many of us. Don't expect too much from this hostel.
