Loved this hostel. It was friendly, clean, spacious and in a brilliant location (so close to the main square, as well as the metro and numerous supermarkets and restaurants). They even had free churros for breakfast! We had an ensuite in our room which wasn't great (shower was very small and a bit grubby) but we enjoyed the rest of... More

This hostel with excellent service is so very well located!!! Very near metro. Very near, almost in, center of town. Description of how to get there from airport by metro is very good. We, 3, stayed in separate room with own shower. And don't forget: you only sleep in the hostel and for the rest its all day and evening... More

Very nice hostel, cheap, clean, modern, with breakfast included. We stayed in a room of a dozen people, but locks are provided to keep your stuff safe in a locker box. The common areas will allow you to relax, chill out and meet people from all over the world. The staff is very welcoming and friendly. The location is excellent,... More

Very good hostel: great atmosphere! Much better than the atmosphere in sister hostel 'Las Musas'. People are really nice (only one girl from the reception spoke very unclear, hard to understand hear...), hospitable, helpful and funny! Rooms looked very nice and cleanl; bathroom as well. Eventhough, worst nice ever hear, 'cause of all the noise my roommates mate until 2:30... More

My fiance and I stayed at the Way Hostel for three nights (July 7th to the 10th) in one of their double rooms with a private bathroom. This was our first stop on a three week European trip, and definitely one of the most enjoyable accommodations. 1) Directions/ Location: The public transit directions from the airport were very clear and...

This was the first hostel and city of our trip, so didn't know what to expect. However, it was really great. Rooms were decent, fairly clean and a decent size for the money you paid. The kitchen and shared living area/ common room was really good and enough room for pre drinks before a night out. The organised activities were... More

I loved this hostel, I've stayed in several in Madrid over the years and this was by far the best. I admit that it partly depends on the people staying there but in general there are a lot of activities so if you are travelling alone you will meet other people. Also people seemed to respect the no lights on... More

Excellent location, great (and very friendly) staff, very good atmosphere! Cheap food (paella) and drinks!. Clean and nice bathrooms. The only negative point : It's written on their website that all dorms have airco, but ours (12 bedrooms dorm) had only one fan! It was a bit too hot!

Loved it here! Stayed 4 nights in a 10 share dorm and had the best time in MAdrid. THe staff were so friendly, the paella was delicious and cheap! Clean too. The flamenco down the street was overpriced, but do the free walking tour!! Thanks!
