If you are looking for luxury then this is not the place for you but you would have guest this by the price you are being asked to pay. Very convenient location, great prices, excellent base to use when being out 90% of your stay. Ladies are very friendly, hostal is very secure. Absolutely no issues with this place and...

I do really love that the hostel is just in the city center, close to SOL, a bit weird I might smell cigarettes everywhere. The furniture is old, but it gives any kind of charm. The only disappointing thing - hair in my bed... thought it has to be cleaned properly.

Highly recommended if you are looking for a simple, clean, comfortable budget stay in the centre of the city. The ladies running the place are two of the most friendly people you will meet in madrid, and I mean that literally. We were here for 3 nights, in a double room with a balcony overlooking the street. The room was...

We stayed here 6 days. For the price, the pro's outweighed the con's. The pro's were as such: Close to all the tourist sites, food, squares, parks, shopping and all the central action. In addition they have good Wifi, free coffee, elevator, terrace overlooking one of the streets. The ladies that run it were very helpful and kept the place...

Centrally located within a two minutes walking distance from Madrid's most central "sol" square, five minutes to reach the Gran Via and 10 minutes to reach any of Madrid's golden triangle of art museums. Room cleaning services is on daily basis and a very friendly staff.

Basic accommodation as you would expect at this price, but clean and run by a very nice lady who is keen to help. She speaks no English, but that's part of the fun. It is very central which means it can be noisy outside, but your are in the heart of the nightlife. Showers were a bit of a challenge,...

I stayed in a single room. It was clean, big enough and right in the city center. You have sink in the room. I also stayed in other hostels in Madrid but one this was the best of them. The Wi-fi was good and the owner was friendly.

The hostel is ideally located in central Madrid with all attractions within walking distance. The service was very friendly and the rooms were cleaned everyday. The rooms were very basic but for the money its what you expect. The only downside is that as it is central can be noisey most of the time.

We stayed here one night. The rooms are clean. It is very close to Sol. The price is reasonable. The owner/worker is very kind and helpful. The street is very active at nights so it can be noisy at nights. It is one of the best options in this area.

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
