The building its self was rather grand with a fantastic central staircase. The rooms were also of a good size, clean, and there was a nice view over the street below. The location was very central, around 15 minute walk away from the marina, and within close proximity to a metro station that had a direct line to one of... More

I've stayed in this hostel in July 2013 (but my app won't allow me to chose that date). The rooms are good for the price. It's super cheap for such a central location! In the heart of the city with everything around. It can get super hot in the room though. They give you a basic breakfast which is nice.... More

Equity point is really inexpensive, for only 12 € you can have a bed accomodation but, obviously, services are proportionate to the price (for example: small bathroom, poor breakfast..) . Anyway, the hostel is really close to Plaza Mayor and to the metro station, it's recommended to someone who wants to visit Madrid all day.

A couple of weeks ago I stayed at the Equity point hostel for a night before going back home. A friend told me it was a good hostel, close to the center and cheap. And it was what i found. The staff was nice and helpful, and the rooms were pretty much what you'd expect for the money you pay.... More

Abrupt service. Average rooms, lift are quite ancient and small. Location isn't too bad though. No WiFi in rooms, but available in common area. Common area and kitchen are very shabby. They have computers but you have to ask them to log you in and they let you in only for 20-30 mins.

The hostel is located in one of the best places of Madrid! Right in the center, you can do everything walking! The location itself makes the place worth, since is also cheap. If you can afford something a bit more expensive, I'd recommend that because the bathroom was really tight and the breakfast was really poor. The staff was regular,... More

Staying in Huertas

Neighborhood Profile
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.
