For my first solotrip I chose to stay at Way Hostel because of the great reviews, the fun activities they organize, the acceptable price of the hostel and last but not least the perfect location. It all came true in my 4 nights of staying there. You are free to join any activities they organize. They are just a great... More

This would be a decent hostel that is run by some hard working people but it is simply not secure. I had a very large amount of money stolen from a locked locker inside one of the dorm rooms, which are operated by pass key, but often carelessly left open. If staying here I would strongly advise not bringing a... More

We didn't do any research prior to going to Madrid on where to go, what to see, or what to eat. So we didn't know what to expect, but that the hostel is in a central location. The hostel has a "free" walking tour, which is great because they take your around the city and give you a history/cultural lesson.... More

If you're looking for a hostel in Madrid, I promise there is no place better than this one. My boyfriend and I stayed for four nights here and had an incredible time. The facilities are clean and nice (we stayed in the 6 bed mixed suite), and we met a lot of great travelers. Location is perfect; we literally walked... More

I have spent a week in this hostel, the hostelers are very sympatic, rooms and bathrooms are very cleans. They also organise a lot of different activities in the common room super "guay". In conclusion, a very good ratio for money that i really recommend.

We just returned from a very exciting stay at Way Hostel, which is located in Madrid (a large Spanish town, I believe). As soon as we arrived we were welcomed by an extremely friendly gentleman called Bow (or was it Pow, I could never entirely get to the bottom of this). He explained to us that Madrid was, essentially, lawless... More

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
