Basic accommodation as you would expect at this price, but clean and run by a very nice lady who is keen to help. She speaks no English, but that's part of the fun. It is very central which means it can be noisy outside, but your are in the heart of the nightlife. Showers were a bit of a challenge,...

I stayed in a single room. It was clean, big enough and right in the city center. You have sink in the room. I also stayed in other hostels in Madrid but one this was the best of them. The Wi-fi was good and the owner was friendly.

The hostel is ideally located in central Madrid with all attractions within walking distance. The service was very friendly and the rooms were cleaned everyday. The rooms were very basic but for the money its what you expect. The only downside is that as it is central can be noisey most of the time.

We stayed here one night. The rooms are clean. It is very close to Sol. The price is reasonable. The owner/worker is very kind and helpful. The street is very active at nights so it can be noisy at nights. It is one of the best options in this area.

The location is ideal. The bedroom and shared bathrooms are big, well illuminated and clean. The bed was nice and we could rest properly. The hostel is located on an old building just by Puerta del Sol, so beware that everything is not brand-new but it is the best option if you only plan on going to the hostel to...

When you get into the building you will not have a clue where to go because it isn't marked so I'll tell you now, it's Level 3. There's a reception there (of sorts), you can try ringing the buzzer/door bell at either the building entrance or Level 3 but that might not get you anywhere. You just have to be...

As for budget accommodation, I'd say this hostel was quite a good option. Our double room was large and it had comfy beds with a balcony overlooking the top of the buildings around the hostal. Shared bathroom was no trouble at all, really clean and never too busy. Staff are really welcoming and you'll certainly feel like home. There was...

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.
