stayed here for one night. rooms are small, but in terms of this place being a hostel everything is on a satisfactory level. reception desk doesn't speak english, so it can get little hard to communicate. average price is 55eur/night per room which is ok given the location.

More of a hotel than a hostel, this is a very quiet, well kept, clean hostel in a massive old building. I think there are only single and double rooms available. It is therefore very quite at night. I stayed in a single room which was small but very well set out so it was just perfect. Since it was...

Small, budget hotel, in a good location--just 5 minutes on foot from the Plaza Mayor and 10 minutes from the big art museums. Easy access with public transportation. At the attractive inner-city neighborhoods of Barrios de las lettras and Latina. Staff spoke English and was helpful when needed. But the room was very small, even by European standards, and not...

Basic, small room with double bed. Room and entire place was clean and tidy. Staff was very friendly. Good free WiFi. Location is perfect -- walking distance from Plaza Mayor and Puerta del Sol. Priced perfectly. Why go anywhere else?

Exactly as expected: small rooms, second floor, great location, if your neighbors are noisy you can hear them but we got no noise from the street. The service was friendly and helpful, and the front desk is always manned.

It is located around the corner from SOL and it is only a 5 minute walk from the heart of Madrid and the best food in the city. The rooms are clean and comfortable even if the walls are thin. TV, duvet and en suite bathroom all available. The staff are friendly and helpful.

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.
