This is probably the best hostel I've been to in my whole life! The staff is amazing and they really are doing everything they can so you'll have a perfect experience! They do activities everyday which is perfect when you are travelling alone! I would definitely recommend it and I miss it already! ;)

I stayed at the Way for three nights, and I changed rooms after the first night due to two separate bookings. The first room was a four bed female dorm, the second a six bed female dorm. Rooms were spacious and had lots of plug sockets. Wifi worked great in the common room but wasn't great in the rooms. Pillows... More

We had an excellent stay at Way Hostel, the staff were really helpful and showed us lots of good places to get cheap tapas and find good bars. There was a lot of people staying in the hostel while we were there so we made a good group of friends. This also ment the fridges was really full. Another thing... More

The directions to this hostel from hostel world was amazing! I had no problems finding Way Hostel. The girl who helped me when I arrived was super nice and even though I arrived hours before checkin, she stored my backpack and provided me with information of what to do. I did the walking tour that comes to the hostel and... More

Absolutely loved this hostel! Great atmosphere and amazing staff. They were very friendly and helpful and furthermore organize many activities for their guests (City tour, excursions, Paella evening, ...). Very centrally located: Sightseeing, Shopping, Restaurants, all in Walking distance. One of the several Highlights for me are the private bathrooms. There are no big common bathrooms like in most hostels,... More

We stayed here a for a couple days to enjoy Madrid. Hostel is very clean and lively, rooms were nice and facilities were clean. They have pub crawl nights, tapas, and 2 euro paella which you can't go wrong. Will definitely come back!!!

Very nice and clean hostel with very comfortable beds. Hostel is organising various activities for its guests every day so you will not be bored if you travel alone. I especially reccommend day trip to Toledo for 20 EUR. Beer for 1 EUR, free Paella {promotion while booking]. Simply amazing

This is one of the best hostels I've stayed in. It has good facilities, a great location in the heart of the city, and the most kind and helpful staff I have ever encountered at a hostel. It's very secure - you need a key card to get in the building and into your room, and the key cards expire... More

This hostel had the best atmosphere I've ever experienced in a hostel. The rooms were spacious with lockers, and the communal kitchen was super social and well-equipped. The common lounge room had a giant bean bag that was my favourite thing ever. We all loved Matheo (I'm not sure how to spell his name) - he worked there and was... More

This hostel is one of the best managed hostels I've seen, you can see that from the the second you step in, the main hostel door and your dorm door, all locked and only open by a card that you get when you arrive, just like hotels,so safety is well taken care of. Never looked at a corner on the... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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 neighborhood, 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.
