A hostel right on Gran Vía in Madrid

Come and see for yourself the Madrid Broadway atmosphere on Madrid’s most glamorous street.

Now you have the opportunity to stay overnight at number 15 of the famous Calle Gran Vía, just a stone’s throw away from Puerta del Sol and Plaza Mayor, in the most authentic and genuine Madrid.

Galaico Hostel is in a stately, 20th century building with the typical architecture that makes the appearance of Madrid’s Gran Vía shine.

And as you know… from Gran Vía to the sky! From here you can easily get to all the parts of the city, the villages and the districts of this great city because we are perfectly-communicated, thanks to the public transport.

In fact, some of the main tourist attractions in Madrid are located very close to our building.
