No Kitchen, couldn't drink your own liquor, terrible showers, loud music until late at night. Bar was overpriced and opened late so you couldn't eat or drink during the day. If it weren't for the people I met it would have been a waste of time.

I formed a part of the group leaders for a group of 30+ people coming to Madrid for educational and cultural visit in Feb 2015.

Cats is a party hostel, so if you want a hotel or the kind of hostel where you stay semi-long-term, don't stay here. There is no kitchen. There is a bar. Them's the breaks. That said, it is really fun and while things can get crazy if you want them to, the times I've stayed here there have always been... More

I stayed for a few days with my friends and had a great time. It's walking distance from the main part of the city centre and the train and bus stations are only 15mins away with buses available to the airport directly. The staff are really friendly and helpful - one example would be when my friends and I could... More

I stayed at Cat's as part of Race2 from St Andrews, and stayed a couple of nights after the race was finished. The rooms were perfect for travellers and allowed my group to get to know the other racers really well. Breakfast was great and the communal areas were really nice to just chill out. All the events I went... More

I stayed in a private 6 room with friends, and we found it very clean and safe (had lockable cabinets specific to each person for safe-keeping). It was close to all the main city attractions and we were able to walk everywhere. However the main annoyance for me is that when any door in the hostel opens and closes, the... 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.
