Location of this hostel is good. However, room and corridor are quite dark. The female bathroom is terrible. 2 showers work and 1 was out of order in total 3 showers on shared bathroom. In a shower, the space is very tiny and no hanger for bath stuffs. You have to hang clothes and towet out of the shower door...

I stayed here just for one night and it suited my needs perfectly, as it was cheap and central. The hostel is kind of dark and dirty looking, and the showers are communal and joined with the toilets so you have to be tricky when getting changed/getting in and out of the shower. The beds were really creaky and you...

Great location, friendly staff, perfect when you wanna visit Madrid with some mates and you only stay there for 2-3 nights. Rooms are old but beds are clean, lockers inside the room for your bag/suitcase. Bathrooms are not very good and at level 2 quite low-numbered

This is one of the cheapest hostel in Madrid in a decent central location. Not the nicest, cleanest hostel we've been to but includes breakfast (cereal, break & spreads, coffee, juice, tea, and some fresh fruits) - so great for those travel on a tight budget and wanting to save on a meal. It is walking distance to most attractions,...

I was thinking a 8.4 rated hostel for 10 € would be a good deal. Totally wrong. The breakfast is terrible. What really turned me of was the lack of toilets. On my floor there was only one bathroom with one toilet. The air in my dorm was terrible and it smelled horrible. There were people, who probably stayed many...

The hostel is located in the best neighborhood in Madrid. Is so close to the Puerta de Sol, the Retiro Park and the Museum Art Reina Sofia. This neighborhood called Barrio de las letras and it is beautiful, where shops, bars and everything have a unique art style. Is very quiet and still in the heart of Madrid. The staff...

Like a refugee camp, the bedding was old, the beds ugly ugly, the paint too, the hostel is very populated, there is no heating in the rooms, nor in the showers, which explains that many fall Sickness of the flu.

We stayed here for 3 nights during the Christmas holidays. The hostel is well located, near the metro and easy to reach the tourist places in the city by walk. The staff was always there and very friendly. The room was quite clean as well as the bathroom. You also have a locker to put your stuffs, which I find...

Spent one night in an 8-bed dorm. The bed was comfy enough, the lockers were surprisingly large, the wifi was excellent, and the staff was very hospitable. Shout out to Xavier who was at the reception in the morning. Thanks for the ciggy

I stayed here on a Friday and Saturday night so aware that my experience may be a little bias here. However, I found for the price that this hostel was not good value for money in comparison to other hostels I've stayed in. It's not particularly clean, needs a lick of paint, and there's no where to get changed after...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood, 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.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
La Posada de Huertas is in an ideal location in central Madrid, situated between the museums and the main shopping and nightlife district. Hostelworld guests have told us 'the location is fantastic; you can walk around to all the attractions if you want' and 'you can get to the heart of all nightlife in Sol in less than 10 minutes' from here. We like that the hostel has events happening nearly every day, with highly-praised entertaining and informative free walking tours and 'enough good common areas and activities to help you get to know Madrid' ... more   less
