A really, really great place. Cheap, friendly, right at the center of Madrid and proposing a number of activities, such as the walking tour and the nightly pub crawl sessions. Spain being THE European country in terms of partying, it was to be expected that I spend every night of my stay mingling with the crowd, sharing a drink or...

I travelled there alone and Way is one of the Best Hostel in town if you'd like to meet people and enjoy your time in Madrid! I would definitely recommend it !

Overall we had a great experience. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and helpful. The walking tour was great except for the awkward chat about how its not really a free tour, we could have done without that part. We chose a private room and bath which worked great. Very clean and nicely tucked away from the noise of...

Some great and not so good points about this place. Great: staff, location, common room, atmosphere, wifi, hostel activities (dinners/sangria nights). Bad: bathrooms were clean, but not enough, broken showers and mild water temperature, no charging sockets next to bed, inadequate shelving and locker space, dorm doors that make huge slamming noise when shutting, and worst organised pub crawl I've...

I was greeted by the very nice staff that was both chatty and informative and made me feel very welcome The beds were fine and the common room too - keeping the price in mind. This is a very cheap hostel perfect for lowest budget travellers. It smells a lot like that perfume this you burn, that is something you...

Great atmosphere, great staff, clean rooms and common rooms, heaps of activities including a sick pubcrawl with plenty of free drinks on offer, drinking games, the list goes on.

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.
