The room was clean, the bed is very good, the bathroom was also very clean, the staff was friendly and helpful with tips about the city and restaurants. The hostel has good parties and it´s near to many restaurants and touristic places.
Cat's hostel is incredible! Definitely everything you need when going alone to Madrid! The paella is amazing, the walking tour, fantastic, and the pub crawls extremely fun! Thank you Maria, Gui, Bruno, Maite and Violetta! You guys rock!
Stayed here for Madrid and had a great time. Rooms are set out around an ornate courtyard, fun bar outside. The rooms are quite cramped with bunk beds but you can get air con and they're basic but comfortable.
Sound proofing isnt great so when...More
I stayed in the cats hostel on Monday 17th July. We arrived late at night and were welcomed by a friendly man at reception who was working through the night. I had to cut my trip short as I needed to go to the hospital...More

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.
