I booked here twice because I liked it that much. The rooms were comfortable and the staff was super friendly. Great place to meet other travellers, too. There is a free breakfast of churros and coffee, then a bigger one for a certain price, but churros and coffee are fine by me! Excellent location, less than 5 minutes from Puerta... More

Location is excellent (even if Metro Line 1 which is closest to the hostel was broken). Very accommodating staff. LARGE bathrooms (yay!). Our room had A/C which helped with the Spanish summer weather. The group activities looked fun--too bad I was unable to join! Only downside is rickety ladders for the bunk beds. It's not fixed to the frame of... More

The main problem witn this hostel was the noise. People were playing music and being loud until about 4am when we had to wake up at... More

One of the best hostels I've ever been. The staff is always willing to help and making activities. The common area and kitchen is big and they also have beers and drinks available for you to buy in the reception. The hostel is located near the city's downtown, so you can get to all the party stuff like nightclubs, bars... More

The staff is super helpful and nice. The hostel organizes events every day and every night, I never had that much fun in a hostel! And my bed was comfy, and OMG I loved the air conditioning and the fact that it was not bunk beds. I absolutely recommend it!

One of the best hostels we have ever stayed in, the room felt like a hotel but the downstairs still has that social hostel vibe which was great. The man who checks you in is soo lovely and helpful. We stayed in a private room and I'd definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Madrid!

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.
