This page is an essential guide to finding student accommodation Madrid. You will find some officially registered organisations that have lists of accommodation for students. There are also links on this page to other articles of interest about cheap accommodation such as youth hostels and hostals. Look for the insider tips as well, as they can save you lots of time with your search.
While you're in the process of looking for student accommodation, you might want to book into a youth hostel. They are cheap, and you'll have the opportunity to meet lots more people. You'll probably come across other students too. On average you'll pay about €15.00 a night for a bed in a shared dormitory.
If you've got a higher budget and don't want to share a dormitory, then the next best thing is to rent a room in a hostal. A hostal is more like a hotel in its style, and you'll be able to enjoy some privacy and your own bathroom. Although most also have cheaper rooms with shared bathrooms. You can get a single room from about €40.00 a night.
We've put together a list of the organisations that are registered with the town hall. You'll find their contact details as well. My advice for finding student accommodation in Madrid is to be on the ball. If you get hold of a number you want to ring for a flat, then ring right away. If you waste time someone else will beat you to it.
