We are a large group travelling to Madrid in September. Our ages range between 12 and 60 years. Is this area suitable for the young ones? Is it safe especially at night time? We read comments that it is an "adults-only zone" at night. Is it true?
Hi Maria, I wouldn t say it's unsafe as this a pedestrian street and the area is full of people, almost at any hour. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, etc I'm a young woman and did not feel uncomfortable walking around the area even at 2am.
However, a couple of hundred meeters from the hostel (after the intersection) after 8-9 pm, there are prostitutes on the street, who are obviously dressed more provocative (prostitution is not illegal in Spain).
Hope that helps!
Hello Maria, I have the same experience as Cristina. The prostitutes are dressed more provocative but not too much and we did not experienced that they would behave too provocatively. We were three women and returned to hostel quite late every day but without any problem. Enjoy your trip!
