Please note the conditions mention that "you must show STUDENT ID to check in." We weren't asked for it, but just be aware. It's a great location, very hotel like although it is a hostel. The bathroom is ample and nice. It has free wifi, kitchen to use, no curfew, and tv with basic cable. It right by the metro...

I was happy with the service. The staff were very nice. When I first came to the hostel, the lady at the reception desk was very helpful in telling me which areas to explore in Madrid. I loved my room, it was the right size for me. I'm glad there was a safe included in the room and I was...

My room was great! It had its own bathroom with towels and soap. There was wifi in the room and everything was very clean. It was a pretty quiet place to sleep, you could hear people moving around in. The morning but nothing terrible. It is walking distance to places to eat and hangout and get a drink. The staff...

This hostel was brilliant. The staff were very friendly, the hostel was very clean. But THE superplus was the location, almost everything can be done within walking distance. I would recomend this to everyone, and if I ever go back to Madrid I will definatly stay in Students Hostel Luis Velez once more! I must say that we had a...

This hostel allows you to book a room for a great price for small groups of friends traveling together. The shared bathrooms and stay rooms are clean. You are right near a metro station and can easily get anywhere in the city (many places are with in walking distance). The only negative thing I could say about the place is...

Stayed here last summer. Was pretty tough to find as its not located on ground level, so we ended up wandering the street aimlessly till we noticed a sign and buzzed to be let up! Hostel itself is pretty basic. The rooms are old fashioned and quite cramped, but they were clean enough. The toilets and showers are in a...

I went in the beginning of october 2012 with three of my girlfriends. We had no problem finding the hostel since on our way up to the road, without asking, people directed us towards the hostel. The staff was very helpful and also very friendly with us even when we had a lot of questions to ask. For 13 euros...

We stayed here in July 2012 and thought this was one of the nicest, cleanest, most affordable hostels on our journey through Europe. We had a large room with a private bathroom, there is free wifi, and clean towels. It is situated in a safe location conveniently close to a lot of Madrid's famous tourist attractions and many restaurants and...

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.
