Very difficult to communicate with the staff but that's rather my fault, should have spend some time on my Spanish. They really tried their best. Very noisy during the night, but hey you do not go...

Very glad I only reserved one night. I was jittery from all the latent nicotine in the room. Didn't like not having a key to the room. There was construction in the building that went to 22:00. Left Madrid that day.

Lovely service, unfortunately only by Spanish speaking staff, and nice rooms. 24 hour door service, so there is no possibility to lose your key. The hostel is situated very central and the rooms are really cute. There is no toilet in the room, but there are clean bathrooms available in the hostel. Unfortunately the beds are quite small, so for...

This hostal is in a great location, within walking distance of most major attractions in Madrid and very close to a subway station. The staff are friendly and very helpful. The cost is very reasonable. The hostal was clean. We were traveling as a couple and able to get a room with a private bathroom. It was exactly what we...

Staying in Huertas

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
