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 6 years, Way Hostel turned out to be the best location in its category, making it the perfect spot for great memories to more than 150.000 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 Korean 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, 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 7 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
