This is not the ideal place for those who want to sleep peacefully since this is a party hostel. However, I was lucky to have such a great group of respectful and awesome people who would stay in the dorm room I was residing in and I was able to sleep when needed. I met some great people and it... More

Great hostel to meet other travellers and cheap drinks in the bar! We stayed three nights and the hostel is very well located with most of the big sites within walking distance. Make sure you go on the walking tour and the pub crawl! Good value for money and rooms are clean and great security. Hopefully will be back soon!

It was my first time staying at the hostel. I was really nervous, but I shouldn't of. I've met people straight away, hostel organises different activities ever night. Meet and greet, tapas tour, pub crawls, cooking shows! During the day they have free walking tour. You will never be bored! They also have a great common area with couches! Which... More

The hostel is quite clean, it has a pub which is a great place to meet fellow travellers. The staff was very helpful barring one guy in beard who was quite rude during the pub crawl. They have great meet & greet games for new people,also they organise pub crawls which are really good. I also did a walking tour... More

We arrived and we had a pitiful welcome, at first we thought that this place would be ok for our 5 nights stay but the more we stayed the more we had bad suprises. The reception doesn't give any information and is not reliable (we ask three times an information about the luggageroom and we had so many different versions... More

Excellent central location (walking distance to Plaza Mayor) with friendly staff willing to give you a fun and cultured experience of Madrid. A variety of free walking tours available and social activities make it easy to meet people as a single, female traveller. The staff: Álvar, Drew and Alba were always willing to help out, answer questions and offer insightful,... More

We stayed here for three nights. Good hostel for meeting people, we had a really great time with new friends from all over the world! If you can go on a Thursday because that's when the pub crawl includes Kapitale (the seven storey club). We stayed in a 19 bed dorm - probably a bad call because the showers are... More

Really cool space, accommodating reception and amazing tours! Stayed in a 6 bedroom mixed dorm on the second floor overlooking the main lounge / courtyard. Free breakfast and cheap food / drinks for between busy tour days and naps was perfect in the Cat Bar. Our amazing tour guides; Álvaro, Andrew (Drew) and Gabi all took fantastic care to make...

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.
