Didn't like that place much, it's a whole floor full of rooms, small ones, it was cold and noisy and to be honest I didn't feel safe. Also the neighborhood isn't nice at all at night so a piece of advise: be aware. Anyways I have no intention of coming back.

I've been using this hostel for the last five years. Really easy to book and the customer service is great. Rooms and facilities are clean and basic with en suite bathrooms and good value for money. Have met lots of different nationalities and age ranges using the hostel. Placed on Atocha so close to trains,metro and shuttle bus to the... More

This hotel is very conveniently located near the Metro, museums, train station, plaza Mayor. And the staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are tiny but clean. But the cleaning staff seems to get sick and/or go on vacation rather often leaving some rooms uncleaned. This happened twice in the five nights I stayed there, but since the room... More

Worst hotel i have ever stayed on. We went there as a group. Many of us got money stolen from the rooms, while they were getting cleaned. The light in the room didnt work. Neither did the aircondition. It was a terrible place.

The best of the place is the location, near to Retiro, Reina Sofia Museum, and the Train Station. You can go to any of the turistic places walking and also the Street Atocha and Santa Isabel are amazing, plenty of good places to eat.the neighborhood is plenty of life, dont miss it!

Firstly, the staff was helpful, helpful, helpful. I needed to have some urgent mail sent here, no problem. We checked out and left something behind, front desk emailed me and had the item in the mail a few days later. The parking fob didn't work? No worries, here's access to a different lot.

Our stay at Hostel Martin was extremely pleasant. The staff were helpful and friendly and the price for what you got was remarkable. After staying in many hostels that have cost more per night, this place was like a 3-4 ★ hotel! The bathroom was nice, the beds were comfy and the air-con was fully functional! This is a little...

I am coming to the end of a three week European holiday and have stayed in many hotels/hostals over this period as you could imagine. Hands down Hostal Martin is the BEST one. From the initial checkin, the staff were pleasant and accommodating. The room..was well beyond our expectations. For 46 euro a night this should be classified as a... 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.
