I was in a shared dormitory with 12 bads, but without windows or space to walk between the bads. A group of people arrived in the middle of the night, talking and laughing for one hour maybe, turning on the light. They didn't care. No kitchen. You have to buy a locker. But the worth was the room.

This place is chilled. Not in the sense that it is the most relaxing hostel in the world (although lounging on the couches in the amazing courtyard is pretty zen) but rather in the sense that it has no pretensions. The staff are immediately likeable and you almost instantly forget that they are 'working'. Everything else was spot on: location,... More

I'm quite used to stay in hostels while travelling, so I've visited a few around the world. However, I can say that Cat's Hostel is one of the best I've ever been to! The hostel is very nice, clean and well-organized. The atmosphere is so lively! Anyway, what really makes the difference is the staff. I'd like to thank in... More

Although quaint at first sight the hostel is efficiently run and has all the services one would hope to find in a city - centre lodging. Helpful staff, particularly Natalia at the front desk kept us well informed about what to see and do in the area. The atmosphere of the hostel, quiet yet much warmer and more friendly than... More

One of The best hostels I've been by far. Since I got there I didn't stop to meet new people,what it was what I was looking for. Cool bar, cool staff (special mention to the girl with blue hair and cool t-shirts, she is the best) and a lot of activities to do. Free breakfast (basic but enough), and lockers... More

This hotel is perfect for travelers with low budget, and wondering to meet people. It is perfectly located in the heart of Madrid. Its bar is always lively, and the staff in general is amazing, especially Natalia, who treated us wonderfully. We would certainly return.

I have stayed here in January and I have to say that I had amazing time. The hostel is really good. I stayed in the 10 room bedroom with our bathroom. Everything was amazing. The room was clean and the all hostel looks really good. The common area for just chilling or a bar to drink and have fun. 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.
