I stayed here for a night and absolutely loved it! Cats Hostel is very clean and safe and the interior is lovely. It's also located in the center so it's perfect for sightseeing. I recommend that if you are staying here, you sign up for the pub crawl which they have every night. It's a great way to get out...

Great hostel with wonderful facilities; a cute central courtyard to sit in, and a lively bar/restaurant downstairs. Loads of activities and tours in Madrid. We really enjoyed the Tapas tour with Mickey and Emanuel in the evening! The staff were so friendly; made us feel right at home :)

The Hostel was on a good location, there was a bar in the lobby where a lot of young people had a party. If you want to have some fun there, this is the place to be. It was surprisingly quiet in my room, I thaught you could here the trouble from the lobby. The 12 bed room was more...

Very well located, the place looks amazing and you will meet a lot of people from all kind of countries. Really amazing experience, the drinks at the hostel's bar are cheap, the staff is friendly and rooms and bathrooms are cleaned really often (hopefully cause some people are just pigs). You just have to be lucky with the other travelers...

Whilst this hostel is great in its location, the 4 nights we have stayed here have been less then what it was made out to be. We paid and booked an all girl dorm to then have 4 males join the room. Nothing against men! But sometimes you just need a bit of girl time! And considering we paid for...

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.
