We arrived after midnight, but there was no problem with it. Problem appeared, when we wanted to communicate in English - the owner called to somebody and he translated everything. We had to move to the other hostel (Hostal Asturiana, I strongly recommend it!), because there was no place in Rivera (I don't know how was it possible, becaue we...

The place looks nothing like the pictures, so that sucked. The room and bathroom in the pictures looked pleasing and also looked like it would smell nice but that's not the case. My room smelled like box of cigarettes. Location was great though and the gentleman that checked me in was really cool.

The hostel has a perfect situation in the middle of Madrid and is very close to metro Anton Martin, yet all is on walking distance. Its 'antique' look and small rooms might result in bad reviews but it'll fully depend on your own expectations. Personally I expected small rooms and old furniture but if the room is clean and the...

The location was excellent; it was less than 1km to train, airport express bus and shops. The walk from the station is on an incline, so if you are dragging luggage, I suggest you take a taxi there. Though the metre showed 3.15E, I was charged 7E I guess because I had a lot of luggage. The walk back down...

The photos don't really do this hostel justice, when we arrived the room was nicer than expected. A decent size, the bathroom was compact but adequate-all clean. The guy who booked us in was pleasant and spoke some English. Our room faced the courtyard so it was quite. The window was tiny, but as we we're spending much time there...

Okay, so we wanted to stay cheaply in Madrid, and this place is cheap. The bathroom (and one toilet) is shared, which is okay, but it is damn small and there is only one shower for the whole hostel, which is not okay. The rooms with a balcony have nice light, but they are also small and the sheets had...

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.
