This hostel located at the centre of Madrid, is the perfect place to meet new people. The enthousiast international staff will for sure give you a good time when they take you on one of their 'tapas-tours' or 'pub crawls'. Special thanks to Mickey who was so kind to take us to one of the best clubs, you were great....

Location is great, only a minute or two from Plaza del Sol and 10-15 from el Palacio Real, and nearby lots of food. Walk in the hostel to a small lobby and the in-house bar, then go through the doors to the Muslim-esque enclosed patio. Around 11 I went on a free tour provided by the hostel and led by...

My friend and I stayed here for 5 days and we had a blast. The hostel is situated in the center of Madrid which makes it really easy to go do some sight-seeing without having to walk for hours. The showers, rooms and floors were cleaned daily. The bar was always a blast in the evenings, the bartenders are really...

I stayed here for a night and absolutely loved it! Cats Hostel is very clean and safe and the interior is lovely. It's also located in the center so it's perfect for sightseeing. I recommend that if you are staying here, you sign up for the pub crawl which they have every night. It's a great way to get out...

Great hostel with wonderful facilities; a cute central courtyard to sit in, and a lively bar/restaurant downstairs. Loads of activities and tours in Madrid. We really enjoyed the Tapas tour with Mickey and Emanuel in the evening! The staff were so friendly; made us feel right at home :)

Very well located, the place looks amazing and you will meet a lot of people from all kind of countries. Really amazing experience, the drinks at the hostel's bar are cheap, the staff is friendly and rooms and bathrooms are cleaned really often (hopefully cause some people are just pigs). You just have to be lucky with the other travelers...

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.
