2060 The Newton Hostel Madrid Hostel Review and Information

One of the best hostels that I have stayed so far. The staff is super friendly and happy to help you and the facility was amazing, especially the rooftop terrace. Although I stayed in a room of 12 it was very quiet and the curtains give you a lot of privacy. - Kim

Insider Tip

Try to get a bed that doesn't have a face hole cut into the divider. If it can't be avoided, you can cover the hole with something to block the light.

The hostel is very close to many great sights and attractions though. It's walking distance to Puerta de Toledo, The Prado Museum, and Plaza Mayor. It's also about a thirteen minute walk from Mercado San Miguel. Other nearby sights include El Parque del Retiro, el Templo de Debod, el Palacio Real de Madrid, and el Museo del Ferrocaril de Madrid.

The agency does a great job, but they do often combine several hostels together so the groups can be quite large. Even so, you can expect a personalized and fun experience throughout your stay here.

Heads Up

This hostel is centrally located but set a bit back from the main drag, so the street can feel a bit rough.
