Madrid - Hostal Oxum

Madrid is one of those cities that don't really have a center. So you could find yourself a bit lost here. But the capital of Spain is well worth a visit. That is why Hostal Oxum is such a great place.

It is near Madrid's lively neighbourhoods Fuencarral, Preciados and Chueca. With smart shops and bars close by. And cultural high lights like the Prado, Plaza Mayor and the Royal Palace are just minutes away.

All eight rooms have free Wi-Fi internet access, iPod docks, a CD player and flat-screen satellite TV. And if you want to continue exercising like you do at home, Oxum offers reduced rates at a gym nearby.

Price: from 30 euro p.p.p.n.
If you need more space, ask for a suite or a family room.

Lisbon - Goodnight Hostel

Can't choose between a city break and a beach holiday? Lisbon offers the best of the city combined with sun, sea and sand.

And what's more, it is home to the hottest hostels in Europe. Like Goodnight Hostel. That not only offers stylish bunk beds, but also a modern apartment close to many of the main attractions. And for those who love spa breaks it also has a really nice jacuzzi. Perfect for a romantic get away!
