Alrededores

Alrededores

The neighborhood (in Spanish: barrio) we are in is called Malasaña. For the madrileños, the word Malasaña is synonymous with hipsters, bars, cafés, and night life. Right next door, there´s Chueca: another part of town known for a wide array of nighttime and daytime activities, and local businesses that range from restaurants and health food to clothing stores.

Walking along Gran Via, you´ll get to experience a lot of what Madrid has to offer culturally: museums, theaters, musicals and exhibitions, and all of that (and more!) within walking distance from your hostel.
