Is there a better plan than enjoying a new book in your bed at Bastardo Hostel?

At Bastardo Hostel we hate boredom, that's why we always look for things to do in Madrid. What good illustrious people, we couldn't let the 83th edition of the Madrid Book Fair (Parque de El Retiro).

This fair has become an unmissable event for reading lovers because, to be honest, is there a better feeling than opening a new book? than to run your fingers through its sheets still full of mystery? We don't think so, well yes, we didn't change the feeling of enjoying a new book in one of our beds in our hostel in the centre of Madrid for anything.

#FLM: only for book lovers

This time we are enjoying its new edition in the famous Retiro Park. Many personalities have already passed through it.

So much for the euphoria with this traditional fair that some are able to stand in line for hours to get the signature of their authors of reference. As good fans, no one wants to miss the signatures of their favorite authors and authors presenting their books.

There are millions of books and millions of authors, so it is not uncommon to see renowned writers with a long history, or new influencers signing their copies with an expectant audience.


And like millions of books, millions of people attend to 'La Feria del Libro Madrid (The Madrid Book Fair). We can find two clear profiles: those that are fixed shot and those that are carried away. The first ones come expectantly to buy the book they have been dreaming about for several months.

The latter are those who let themselves be carried away in search of what fascinates them.

Therefore, from Bastardo Hostel we want to make it easy for you to choose your weekend plan in Madrid. Also, as we were telling you, every day there are signatures, you can find authors like: Ana Punset, Alicia G. Ortuño, Jesús Cárdenas, Raquel Tirado, Julia Navarro, Laura Freixas, Megan Maxwell, Fernando Aramburu, Luis Antonio de Villena, Andrea Bernal...

If you are looking for something to do in Madrid this weekend, this plan should certainly be on your agenda.

And remember, bastard, we always continue to party. In our hostel you will find the best dinner or food pre or post Book Fair, because to go to the book fair you have to be strong, and if you run out of them, remember that you can always rest in our rooms.

See you on the more bastard blog!
