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. View House Rules

    This is a great social hostel in Madrid. The nightly 3€ sangria party is a great deal and it’s easy to meet people here. The staff is super friendly as well. The tip-based walking tour offered is a great way to learn about Madrid.

    This hostel is a perfect choice for college students. The staff is very accommodating and they genuinely care about what you have to say. The hostel itself is just a walk away from Puerta del Sol, and the Plazza Mayor is around there too. The room that my friend and I was for four females, and it was very spacious with its own bathroom. The only problem with this hostel is that it was very loud at night, and it was hard to sleep with all of the disturbances. But overall, I recommend staying here

    Booked this hostel with some friends to visit one that is doing her Erasmus in Madrid and we totally didn’t expect the hostel to have a cool backpacker atmosphere! People were hanging out at the chill area all the time, playing beer pong or drinking sangria (3€ all you can drink!!) at night. The backpacker amongst us felt a little like they were on the road again ;) Also, the staff was really nice and they will do everything they can to help you (yes, everything!). Will come back some time!

    Great Hostel! Really good location (just 6 minutes walking from puerta del Sol), next to 2 underground stations, and the area is full of supermarkets and nice restaurants. The kitchen and bathrooms were always clean. The staff is super nice and always ready to help. I would definitely recommend it!!!!!

    Overall a perfect location, but I will note that there was a lot of internal construction going on in the building so definitely expect some noise/facilities workers walking around, but other than that it was good for 2 quick nights in Madrid before traveling to the south!

    Awesome location but the rooms are noisy and the bathrooms are small. Communal kitchen and dining not very spacious either for those wanting to cook.

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.
