One of the top hostels I have stayed at. Stayed in a 4 bed dorm that had plenty of space , lockers and power plugs for each bed. Staff were very friendly and helpful with anything. Free churros for breakfast was a nice treat. Location is right next to a metro station and a 2 min walk from bars and... More

Great hostel in Madrid. It was my second time staying here and i was just as impressed as the first time. Nice location right by the metro, amazingly kind and friendly staff. I especially love their lounge area, very communal and easy to meet people.

It was a great hostel atmosphere with events every night to bring the group together. Great for if you're travelling together or with a group. The staff was very helpful and their recommendations were appreciated. In addition for the walking tour, our tour guide was great and provided some fantastic recommendations for lunch as well as to watch the flamenco.... More

We stayed here for three nights at the beginning of September. The staff were very welcoming and friendly and provided us with a map and outline of the city. We booked a private double room and bathroom. The room had air conditioning and was very large. I however found the cleanliness of the room poor. There were hairs in the... More

Was such a perfect experience! I spent just a couple of nights there, but I enjoyied it so much! Clean, colorful, well located and quite cheap. The guys were so nice and helpful. They also use to organize a daily event. Join it and you wont regret! Must go there! Thumb's up!

Staying at WAY was my first hostel experience and certainly not my last! The staff was extremely helpful: they stored my luggage before I could check in to the room, let me borrow a room key when I forgot one, helped me to print bus tickets, and they always greeted me warmly when I walked by. Plus, the front desk... More

Unbelievably convenient and terrific staff. They really make it easy for you so experience Madrid, which is a wonderfully small and charming city with plenty to see and do. The hostel has Paella dinner for 2 Euros, Sangria night, and Tapas night, which are all must-do's! The location is great, too – no more than 10 minutes walk to anything... More

The location is great: only 1 minute walk from the Metro station, 30 minutes ride (transfer 2 or 3 times by Metro and/or train), 10 minutes walk from the Puerta de Sol and Plaza Mayor, 25 min walk to the Atocha rail station. It is at the quiet alley in the residential and commerical area. Only 1 to 2 minutes... More

I just returned from a week in Spain and a few days in Madrid. I did a lot of research and was looking for a comfortable and safe hostel which is in a central location in Madrid that was also known for having great staff and guests. I thought the Way Hostel looked like a good choice and I wasn't... More

We arrived in Madrid going off of 50+ hours of no sleep and the man working was kind enough to let us shower and check in early to get some sleep. The rooms are clean and each bunk has a locker. The hostel is in an amazing location and was filled the fantastic people! We went on a tapas tour... More
