Our handwritten guide on Backpacking Community of Madrid

Community of Madrid is the area that encompasses the greater Madrid area. It was settled originally by the Muslims as it was on higher ground and slightly further north of the then capital city, Toledo. The name of the region descends from the Arabic word that means "source of water" due to the aqueduct water networks which run below the city. It has a rich and turbulent history from the Islamic occupation to the Christian invasion and the Spanish Inquisition. These influences make it a fun region to explore; during your time here, and you will find that the different histories and cultures fuse together to give a charm unlike any other you will find in the world.

While the majority of the hostels that you will find here are in Madrid’s city centre, there are also quite a few hostels on the outskirts of the city in the suburban areas. A lot of these hostels are accessible via the Metro, the Renfe, or other public transportation systems that the city has to offer. Depending on what you are planning to do in Madrid, however, it is most likely best to stay in the central area closer to majority of the city of Madrid's attractions. The only time is makes sense to stay in a hostel on the outskirts of the city is when you have a car and want to avoid the lack of parking spots offered by hostels in the city. For additional options, there are some smaller cities within the Community of Madrid region that are within approximately an hours drive of the city centre and also offer hostels.

In fact, there are many museums in the city that offer times of free entry. Just enquire about it in your hostel. While you are in the area, make sure you take a walk through the Buen Retiro Park, as it is just stunning. The Royal Palace is worth dropping in on as well. And of course, while in Madrid city, you should stop in at the Chocolateria San Gines, which is undoubtedly one of the most famous places for churros and chocolate in all of Spain.
