First off, let's settle the name issue. In Spanish, "TIJCAL" stands for "Work, Equality, Justice, Culture, Friendliness, and Liberty." Move over Best Western—this place promises an ideology!
As for the hostal, it has recently been given a makeover, with freshly tiled floors, the renovated bathroom, and a pleasing new paint job. All renovated rooms have air-conditioning units installed. They even hung a Van Gogh print on the wall. (Well, somebody got fancy on us!)
Owners Gabriel, Marcelo, and Ramon have put a lot of time, hard work, and fresh paint into their endeavor. The Tijcal's 31 rooms are painted in bright, happy hues and equipped with private facilities. Fourteen of these have views, and, possibly, balconies (make sure to ask ahead). Best of all, the hostal is located just steps from Madrid's famous Plaza Mayor, making it one of the most convenient hostals on our site.
