Cat's hostel is a very good party hostel. It has a perfect location, good price and it is a great place for meeting people. The free walking tour by Violeta was awesome, tapas tour was really nice and pub crawl with Mickey was amazing (so much fun!!!). In general I loved my 4 nights staying here. I would definitely recommend...

Showed up at Cat's this past December with no reservation (would NOT recommend during the summer), they accommodated us very quickly, showed us to our room and explained the entire hostel in an easy process. Bathrooms were cleaned multiple times throughout the day, decor is beautiful and the bar is a complete blast. Lockers per individual provided in every room...

Just an OK experience here. Excellent location, fun tours and activities planned for everyone. Walking tours, bar, parties, etc. the hostel provides lots of activities for you. The downside was that the staff were not very friendly at all, the Wi-fi is TERRIBLE, and I had jeans and my shirt stolen from my locked room. You can only receive wi-fi...

The hostel has an extremely beautiful lobby. The rooms and bathrooms are clean (with extremely powerful shower jets-wonderful for cleaning after a night out ;) ). My friend and I had a great time. They had excellent drink specials and some food for Christmas eve. The bartenders/ Pubcrawl organizers were very helpful and did a great job of keeping everyone...

I had booked their sister-hostel, Mad-hostel, but was moved to this one. Because of that I got free breakfast for all days and a much better room than I had ordered in the first place, which was so sweet of them. Other than that I really enjoyed my stay, people were friendly, the cleanliness was decent and there was a...

Overall this was a really social hostel, the pub crawl was great and there was lots of people, but annoyingly they seem to charge you for everything in this hostel! If you want to use the wifi you need to like their Facebook page, and since it's only valid for 24 hrs, the following day you need to write a...

It is a great hostel, clean and nice. There is bar in the hostel, so you can meet with others easily and for me it was such a great thing as I traveled alone. And I could sleep easily, as the bar is in a separate place in the hostel, not in the street, or not in the common area....

Anyone who left a negative review based on the noise from the bar should never have booked a room at a *party* hostel. And besides compared to other party hostels this place is rather tame (with partying at the hostel at least). The courtyard/common area is kept quiey after midnight and the bar closes around 2am. There are pub crawls...

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.

Every night of the week we will take you on the best pub crawls, where you will meet your fellow travelers and truly experience the Madrid lifestyle. During the week we also offer you tapas and shopping tours, and free Flamenco and Salsa dance classes. And of course we’ve got the basics.
