You can book the train in Lourdes station. You'll need to change in Hendaye. Times and prices from www.sncf.com and/or wwww.renfe.com. A good hostal, nice location right downtown and round the corner from chocolatería San Ginés for chocolate and churros and a stones throw from Plaza Mayor. http://www.hostal-aresol.com. The owner is Carlos. A word of warning about safety in Madrid: Be careful in the train station, on the metro and generally in the centre. Madrid is a great city, but it is not Lourdes.
