Hostelworld says

Way Hostel is within walking distance of most sights in Madrid and is near the weekly Rastro market, Puerta del Sol, La Latina and Plaza Mayor. Hostelworld guests frequently recommend this hostel's free tours as a 'great way to see the city', saying they're 'really helpful for those who come to Madrid with no idea on what to do'. Our visitors have also praised the staff for being 'extremely helpful and [having] a great knowledge of the city', saying the hostel 'gives you an inside look at Madrid' and is 'less than 300 feet from a metro station but in a side street which makes it very quiet'.

Property Description

We're located in the quiet neighbourhood of Tirso de Molina, just around the corner from Puerta del Sol, the neuralgic centre of Madrid. We have selected our location in order to have all of the main touristic spots in walking distance to the hostel. in this beautiful and walkable city. Close to traditional markets such as San Miguel or El Rastro flea market on Sunday mornings, the hostel is not more than a 15 minute walk to the Art Triangle: Prado, Reina Sofia and Thyssen-Bornemisza museums.
The first idea for the creation of Way Hostel took place in the summer of 2008. By that time, there was not even a name, just a place that appeared to be ideal for our goal, the one that involved opening a new concept hostel in the city. We only knew the name should have 3 letters and rooms should be wide and diverse, because the new type of “backpackers” coming to town were not satisfied with the cheap accommodation that existed in Madrid. With all the will, and dreams ahead, we began to reform the building and create the first strategies to develop what soon became the best hostel in the city. A great place, with a great name and a great location was not enough, so our next move was to build up a young and multilingual team with ambitions. Today, after more than 8 years, Way Hostel turned out to be the best location in its category, making it the perfect spot for great memories to more than 200.000 guests that have given us a chance. Once here, you will be the judge.
Our motivation has been, and will always be the same: it is important that you come, but far more important that you come back. This is why we offer a huge variety of rooms and prices, activities and services that will assure a great stay. From double private rooms ensuite to large dorms and only female dorms; from free, to “backpacker´s” price activities; from Spanish, to South America members on Staff; once here, you will never want to leave! And if you are planning a group trip, with friends, family, uni or whatsoever, we will offer the value for the money of the market so you can enjoy everything else Madrid has to offer!
We offer a wide variety of activities including a walking tour, tapas tour, cheap dinner in the house, pub crawl and a Flamenco show. We also organize 'milongas', the famous tango dance celebration, every Saturday night at the hostel free of charge for our guests! So if you happen to stay during the weekend, you should try out your dancing skills!

Almost 9 years has gone by since we opened, so we thought it was time to update our facilities and fulfill our customer´s needs, keep up with the new competition in town and give a nice design to our common areas and rooms.
Now we are proud to welcome you to the new WAY, same location, same spirit, with newly refurbished common areas and facilities, reading lights for each bed, individual sockets, new and modern lockers and an even greater atmosphere with super high speed Wi-Fi.

Come visit us and check out the new WAY HOSTEL MADRID.

    I have travelled in many places but I have not come across before such a nice hostel! The stuff was super friendly, things just work and it's built so as to maximise interaction, thus if you are traveling alone it's very easy to male friends. The location is strategic, close both to most important sights and nightlife. I had an amazing time, met great people and if I was going back to Madrid I wouldn't be thinking of any other hostel to stay.

    Absolutely loved my stay in this hostel. Obviously not as new as other hostels so the lower bunk was a little low and showers weren’t in abundance- but deffs worth more than you pay for. The walking tour picks you up from the hostel making it super easy to join! Plus also a really great way to make other friends. As a solo traveller the vibes were great. Sangria for 3€ at night means that there are always a bunch of people in the common room. I’m so glad I stayed here and will stay here again!

    The bathroom facilities were not as good as I would have liked them. The hand towels in the bathroom hadn’t been changed over in 24 hours. However the staff were super friendly!

Way Hostel says

We care above everything else about our guests and their needs. We generally attract people aged 18 to 60 years old who have a good vibe and are open to meeting other avid travellers. For fun we do pub crawls, a tapas tour, paella night and drinking games, or we go out to the nearby nightclubs and bars. Sometimes we just chill out in our recently-refurbished lounge.
I think we really do offer the best value for price in Madrid, because we've got large, comfy rooms and lots of bathrooms. We're not more than 15 minutes away from Sol, the Rastro Market, La Latina, Retiro Park, the Royal Palace, Gran Vía, Plaza España and Plaza Mayor, but the one place I usually recommend that people see is the Templo Debod.
