Excellent hostel. The staff are very very helpfull and kind!! They prepare activities for the guests.... every day! The location is perfect, near "Plaza del Sol" and everything, it's city center. It has great common area to meet travelers of all parts of the world. Bedrooms and bathrooms are clean, always.

I was in Madrid with my friends, and we stayed at Way Hostel because of location. Metro station is just 2 minutes from hostel. I suggest the hostel also because of polite staff and clean interior... Each room has air contition system...

They have a great atmosphere, the staff is incredibly friendly and helpful, cheap beers and a lot of activities. The bathrooms are fine (some are a bit too small, but its ok) and they could have plugs near the beds.

Fantastic hostel, everything you could want from a hostel for a great stay as a traveller. Very social and also great, clean facilities. The organised walking tours and pub crawls were the best with amazing guides, in particular Wioletta on the tapas experience and pub crawl :)

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.
