Has anyone heard anything about Pension Antonio or Hostel Fonda Horizonte?
I am looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Madird for a few days and I found these two hostels on this site. Any further sugestions??
Also, I've read that convents/ monastaries are good places to stay if you don't mind helping out and I've actually heard the same about B&Bs...
If anyone has any info, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanx!!!!
Alana

Why not try Hostal Chelo? Antonio, who you will see/hear from on this board is in the family business. Check it out!

As for B&Bs none of the hostels I know (and I know a few) give breakfast. So hostels are just Bs . Also, I have never heard of places that accept help of their customers in return for room or something like that.

As for monasteries / convents few of them take guests. But it's really difficult to find a place there. From what I've heard, you have to book like 1 year (or even more) in advance and they usually take people who are going to spend a lot of time in a peaceful place to write a book, study...

Regards,

Antonio

Alana,

I have a room booked at Hostal Fonda Horizonte for next Wednesday (October 4). They seem very friendly and the price is so low it is almost scary ($18). Assuming that I have not mistakenly booked a room at a brothel, I would recommend the place. I have not actually seen it yet (still in America right now) but it sounds very promising. Good luck!

I recently spent four nights at Hostel Horizonte and would recommend it. It was affordable, in a central location, and the management is nice.

It is a little loud at night outside on the street, but a pair of earplugs do the trick.
