Clean and welcoming hostel. I was in Madrid from Sunday till Tuesday in winter, so I wasn't expecting much. The hostel was very clean and had decent beds and lockers. WiFi reception in the rooms is questionable. The kitchen has everything you might need and there is a beamer in the common room (movies available in case of bad weather/staying...

The front desk at Way is exceptional. Marco helped me learn more spanish in a week here than I learned in two years in highschool. He wrote out instructions for me to catch trains and buses, and even walked with me to a barber's to explain how I wanted my hair cut in spanish. He went above and beyond, repeatedly....

Pros: Central location, secure, nice staff, friendly environment, decent lounge. Went out to a bar with some people I had just met. The hostel also holds events such as a bar hop and walking tour. I did not go to either, but liked that they provided options. Cons: Very little space between the top and bottom bunk, so I could...

The hostel staff were amazing, particularly David and Adan who got everyone involved in social events. I stayed over New Years and participated in the pub crawl, drinking games and city tour which were a fun way to meet people. The staff even ensured my phone was returned to me when I left it in the hostel. Bathrooms were clean...

Great service, smiling and helpful staff. I got all information on wher to go and what to do. I love parque El Retiro but there's so much to see and so little time, so I appreciate their selection of what's best to do in Madrid, most of it free or tip-based. I got a 6 bunk beds room with two...

This hostel has everything- amazing staff, amazing (and clean) facilities, amazing price, amazing location, amazing activities, meals, and day-trips. I visited this hostel in 2016 while on a 5-month trip around Europe. The first time, I stayed about 5 days. About one month later, I came back and stayed for about 2 weeks. I highly recommend it to everyone! Thank...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
Huertas
Also known as Barrio de las Letras, Huertas was once home to prominent literary figures, Miguel de Cervantes and Lope de Vega among them. The neighbourhood is committed to celebrating its rich heritage: Calle Huertas itself is inlaid with quotes from celebrated authors, street names pay homage to them, and second-hand bookshops pervade. Huertas receives a fair amount of spillover from the center — side streets around Plaza Santa Ana take on a foreign party atmosphere at night, and you always see young backpackers navigating the streets — but as you descend into the neighbourhood, everything becomes a little more cramped and slightly less refined, and takes on more of an underground feel. Live music is at the heart of Huertas: by night, its subdued bars are ideal for meeting friends, sipping cocktails, and chatting quietly while enjoying jazz or singer-songwriter performances.
