Because the conference organizers had scheduled a trip to Toledo for the evening, I decided to skip the morning of the conference and sleep in. Unfortunately someone was banging on the pipes at the hostel until late, and in spite of my exhaustion the acoustics were too difficult to ignore. We went to Bodeguilla Los Rotos for breakfast, where I had …

Today was the first morning of the conference, and I headed off bright and early, breakfasting on groceries from the convenience store. By the time I was dropped off in the evening, I was tired and hungry, so the two of us headed off to Casa Ciriaco, one of the restaurants recommended by Fodor's.

It looked kind of sketchy, and even worse …

Because the hostel had no kitchen facilities, we went in search of some easy way to make tea for the rest of our stay in Spain. Since the conference was going to be starting the next day, I also wanted to visit old Madrid before I got distracted. Our first stop was a convenience store with a good selection of edibles where I picked up some …

When we arrived in Madrid, we were quite tired. Our flight had left in the afternoon and had a layover at Frankfurt, so when we arrived we were fairly well done in. Although I had initially planned to take the subway to Atocha station, near our hotel I asked a tourist guide at the airport about it. She helpfully informed us that the subway wasn't a …

    Stayed here on two occasions. Hostel is in an excellent location and a great price. The owners were pleasant and helpful. All rooms need a key to open from the inside, which I think is a fire hazard.

    In the twin room:
    Room was clean and functional. However, there is severe noise transmission inside the hotel. You can hear people coughing in a room down the hall. Also, not enough hot water. No kitchen.

    In the Apartment: Great facilities, but again issues with the water and noise from the street. Much nicer than the twin room.
