Not sure about the prices - you'll have to visit their websites to get current rates - but there's also the gay-focused Hostal Gay Puerta del Sol
which overlooks the construction site of Puerta del Sol. In Chueca area there's Hostal Gay Sonsoles
, Hostal Gay Odesa
, Hostal Gay La Zona
, and Chueca Pensión
. You may find reviews of some of these here in this forum category by conducting a SEARCH and using the appropriate keywords.

for Barcelona information, Transportation, Lodging, & much MUCH more!
