The immediate purpose of the building after its built was its use as a jail, followed by a royal renovation which transformed it into the palace of the king of Spain King Philip IV, upon his descending the throne.
During the early 17th century, the various national architects of Spain such as Juan Gomez de Mora and Bartolome Hurtado Garcia undertook the preservation and further renovation of the building, and introduced newer sections into the building.

Really clean, nice staff, and right in the city centre. Around 2 minutes from Sol station.
Very central and still quiet location. Quite nice for a such discounted price. Funny tiny shower room. Very friendly staff!
Free Wi-Fi, quiet, decently comfortable if small beds. The shutters needed a bit of figuring out. You have to pull them down physically with the door open while pulling and releasing the strap inside. Once closed they are very good at keeping the light out. No refrigerator and no real TV channels. Replacement towels daily. Let's be honest you don't want to stay in the hostal all day anyways. It's comfortable for sleeping and then you hit the town. Small shops directly outside are very good for quick bites to eat. The major shopping areas are a 25 minute walk but smaller shops are everywhere.
I have spend a week in this hostel: it is a really nice place to stay because itś near from the best place to visit in Madrid. It is located in the city center so it is near from everything : museums, bars, shopping avenues, nightclubs, etc. It is a cheap and perfect for young students. I would recommend for people who are looking for short time accommodation.
Posizione perfetta per un weekend a Madrid, stanze non troppo grandi e neppure curatissime, ma in ogni caso 4 stelle per Hostal Santa Cruz per servizi, pulizia giornaliera, gentilezza e posizione!!!!
