The Spanish capital of Madrid is truly a city that never sleeps. There is always something interesting to do when stay in a hostel in Madrid.
There are of course the classic sights, including large avenues, small streets, churches, palaces, and museums including the football (the national sport) museum. When done with them, or if you need a break, why not trying the famous thick chocolate and churros (donuts) served al fresco in winter, or a fresh draft cerveza (beer) in a cool bar in summer. Tapas (small servings of cold or warm food) are at all the bars to tempt you. After that, why not go back to your hostel in Madrid for a short siesta (nap) before starting your night?
It is part of the local custom to eat a late dinner, have a few drinks, and then hit the clubs to dance until dawn. It is advisable to book your hostel in Madrid as close to the centre of the city as possible if you want to go back and forth between the attractions and your Madrid hostel (especially in summer when the outside temperature can reach almost unbearable levels at the peak of the day). If your lodging budget is very tight, suburban Madrid hostels can be a better choice, but public transportation is very limited at night and can be extremely crowded during rush hours.
You will do plenty of walking even if your Madrid hostel centrally based, because the city is very large. Something good to know is that the city can be very cold in winter. The cost of a taxi to get back to your bed after a long night can be more than the difference between a dorm room in the suburb and the city centre.

La Posada de Huertas
"This hostel is located in a bit of a rundown building, but inside it looks much better. It has clean and modern-looking rooms and bathrooms, and a well-equipped kitchen. It's on one of the main streets of the restaurant and clubbing neighborhood, in addition to being a short walk from many of the main tourist attractions. The hostel has a very convivial atmosphere, in addition to relatively tight living arrangements, so don't come here...
Los Amigos Hostel
"Small hostel located in the center of Madrid and within half a block of a metro stop. It's on the 4th floor (5th in American-speak), but there is an elevator ("lift" in Brittish-speak). There is a common area with TV, bar, and kitchen. Male and female dorms are segregated to separate wings of the floor. The bathroom facilities are good and the staff is friendly. Extra €5 "day fee" if you want to stick around after your checkout time."...
Barbieri International Hostel
"Barbieri International Hostel is an old area of the city north of Grand Via. The area is full of charm, with many tapas bars and restaurants frequented by locals as well as the adventurous tourists. Therefore, if you want to "go native," this may be the area for you. The Location The small road seems rundown and on reaching the address, we were quite shocked, as the building looked abandoned and the old door is full of graffiti. We...
Students Hostel Luis Velez
"Students Hostel Luis Velez is fantastic. It is clean, cheerful, colorful, welcoming, and the staff are extremely helpful. The Location The location of this hostel is perfect -- it's about a five-minute walk from the Puerta del Sol and the Plaza Mayor. It's a fifteen-minute walk to the Palacio Real and a fifteen-minute walk in the opposite direction to the Paseo del Prado and all of the famous museums. To visit most tourist stops, the...
Ole International Hostel
"I found this to be one of the best hostels I stayed at in all my travels!! The staff were adorable and willing to help. It has a great DVD selection and an easy environment for socializing with other guests. There were people from all over the world while I stayed here!! And all the facilities were kept really clean at all times. If you like easy-going types, this is a great hostel." … "Very good hostel. I was there just one night but...
"Environment: It's about a ten-minute walk from Gran Via. It's located in a so-so area, with a decent amount of shops to buy basic stuff. They were doing construction while I was here, but this was back in July 03', so I don't think you will need to worry about that now. Facilities: There is no laundry service. I don't remember there being a kitchen. The staff is a husband and wife and their daughter. They are very friendly and I felt very...
Living Cat's Hostel
"Cat's Hostel is a beautiful little place tucked away in an unassuming street in the centre of Madrid. The Location Cat's is in a small side street off Calle de Atocha but is not difficult to find at all -- the closest metro is Tirso de Molina or Anton Martin. It's very close to Sol, Gran Via, and Plaza Mayor, as well as the smaller but prettier Plaza de Santa Ana, and only a ten-minute walk from the Rastro on a Sunday. Despite being...

The hostel is located inside an apartment building....
Living Mad Hostel
"Mad Hostel's location is probably what its guests find most attractive about the hostel. It is located near the train station, Anton Martin, and it is convenient for guests to visit most major tourist attractions in Madrid from the hostel. The Location There is not much to see or do around the hostel area, but it is located in a quiet and safe neighborhood. However, it might be a little tricky to find the hostel when guests first...
Albergue Juvenil Madrid Hostel
"Albergue Juvenil Madrid Hostel is very unique in its design, modern, and well maintained. Due to its size, it's not a very social place, but it is well located, clean, and has all the amenities you'd expect in a quality hostel. The Location The hostel is located a short walking distance from a central metro station. It is in a safe area, within the downtown area of Madrid. The airport is accessible by metro, thus making it very easy to...

Las Musas Residence
"Musas Residence is a large, energetic, and youthful hostel located in the middle of all of Madrid's action. It's thankfully tucked away on a little side street so as to avoid a lot of unwanted noise and commotion. The Location It's easy to get to -- no matter where you're coming from in Madrid, just find your way to Metro Line 1 (the light-blue line) and head towards the Tirso de Molina stop. Once you arrive, hop off the metro and make...
"Way Hostel is an excellent, affordable hostel, especially for solo travelers, but is plagued by unreliable Wi-Fi and poor administration. The Location Way Hostel is easily accessible from the metro, which links to the airport and Madrid's two train stations. Once you leave to Tristo De Molina (the closest metro station), calle de Relatores is the street to your right. Relative to the sights, especially Puerta del Sol, Way Hostel is...

"Absolutely perfect - It was like staying at a beautiful hotel. A bit small, but nothing unworkable, especially not for a couple or single." … "It's clean and convenient.

360 Hostel Malasaña
"Malasaña Traveler's Hostel is a decent option for those on a budget. The hostel fits the bill for basic amenities, but doesn't offer much else. The Location The hostel is located in Malasaña, which is known as one of the more young and alternative areas of Madrid. Even with the reputation, the area does not offer much in terms of cool places to hang out. It's located about a block from the metro, but it's an easy fifteen-minute walk...
Equity Point Madrid
"After staying for two nights at Equity Point Madrid, we wouldn't go back. It isn't horrible but it just isn't worth the money paid. The atmosphere isn't so friendly, the staff hardly speaks English, and the amenities aren't great. The Location The only thing good about the hostel is its location. It's about five minutes from the metro station (Sol). When you get out of the station take your first left -- the street with Sephora. If you...
Turis Madrid Hostel
"If you're a traveler on a budget -- and aren't we all? -- Turis Madrid Hostel has some of the cheapest prices in town. The environment isn't especially conducive to meeting other people (it's a multi-storied building that's more like a student dormitory), but there are common areas just in case. Besides that, the location is perfect if you want to explore the city on foot, and if not, it sits directly across from a metro station (Plaza de...

"Clean, central, modern - we checked in after 2pm when the reception was closed but easily worked out the pin code for the door and found our room keys at reception. the area seems a bit shady at night where you have to dodge the Indian restaurant touts and the Africans trying to sell weed, but it's probably not that bad, we were just tired from a long day's travel. breakfast was one piece of toast, mini packaged muffin and coffee. Had to go...

The Living Roof Hostel Madrid
"The Living Roof Hostel Madrid is a brand-new hostel in a less fancy area of Madrid, but still close to everything. As it's new, some mistakes are forgivable, but a lot has to be done still to make it memorable. The Location The hostel is conveniently located around five hundred meters away from two different subway stations. In either case, there's a hill to climb/go down, but nothing extreme. The street is a little hidden, as it's only...

Madrid Travel Tips & Suggestions
Madrid is not dangerous at all, providing you be very careful with your bag and wallet! I suggest sightseeing with a photocopy of your documents in the bag, and leave the originals in the hotel room, so if you lose your bag you don't have to spend your last few days of holiday in the council to ask for a new passport -- there's always a big queue!
I liked Madrid -- a great place to visit. I was there over Christmas of '06 -- flew from Faro-Madrid direct.
Spain is not dangerous, but there are petty crimes everywhere. You'll be safe -- just not your belongings. Definitely be more cautious and always check that your belongings are with you. Don't be obvious about being a tourist.
I've been to Madrid thousands of times, I've never been especially cautious or anything, and I've walked the city day and night... I never had anything stolen, the city is actually safe. As in any city of 5 million people, you need to be a bit more vigilant I guess, and leaving lugagge unattended or stuff like that is certainly not smart... just do what you would do back at home, no more, no less.
Be CAREFUL in Madrid. We had our cell phone stolen from our hostel and then two days later our bags stolen from a metro station! Despite what you're thinking, we were being very cautious. We heard lots of similar stories. Watch your pockets and bags, and if you obviously look like a tourist and someone asks you for directions, immediatly check that your wallet's there... that's how they get you!
— The two Gringos
Madrid is a GREAT city to visit! With two of the better museums in all of Europe, The Prado and The Reina Sofia, this is a city that the art lovers and those with a casual interest in art will not want to miss. Another site that is often overlooked is in the church San Antonio de la Florida which houses some amazing frescoes by Goya. They were so popular even in his time that the church goers were so overcome by tourists that they were forced to build an identical church next door so that they could worship in peace! Nearby is the hill where many insurgent Spaniards were executed by the French on May 3rd; the same powerful scene that Goya depicts on canvas located in the Prado. There is also an restaurant in the vicinity that serves whole roasted chicken and apple cider (the alcohol variety) that always packs people in. If you are there during the season, be sure to go to a Real Madrid futbol (read: soccer) game. Even if you don't know anything about soccer, you will be seeing one of the greatest teams ever assembled with superstars from all over the world. Hopefully you can make your way to Madrid, because it is a city that should be up there with London, Paris, and Rome as the premier places to visit in Europe!
There are a lot of cheap hostels and pensions near the metro station "Sol" which is in the middle of the city. Madrid is very quiet indeed.
Madrid is more of a working city than a tourist attraction. But even the locals leave during the summer because it's just so darned hot. Tip: look for a "Solero Smoover" (tropical smoothy in a tube... mmm) here and everywhere else in Europe to beat the heat.
