So, I arrived in Madrid Tuesday morning and hit the ground running, well as best as I could with all my bags on my back (lots of the metro stops don't have escalators...fun!). I stayed at a hostel in the center for three nights, each day scheduling at least one apartment viewing and spending the rest of my day reading through listings. There were loads of other people in the hostel doing the same, and I definitely bonded with some people going through the same difficult process.
After seeing 5 apartments in 3 days, I decided to call it quits. I chose an apartment with 2 really cool roommates, a great price, a double bed, with good metro access to both the center and to work. No, I'm not in the dead center of the city, but I actually prefer that. As cool as the center of Madrid is, it's really loud and crazy, and I can't take that all the time. So, I chose an area that's really green and residential.
