I manage to book two separate Airbnb for two on Thursday night . One for Friday night for £60 and one for Saturday night for £23 , both got plenty of reviews though some for the Saturday one are not glowing ,and the Friday night one has offered to be my taxi when we land on Friday night .

I roughed it last year in Kiev airport. To be fair, Airports are pretty safe places to sleep - obviously lots of security around.

This time - I am on the train out from Madrid early morming. Train stations are generally less secure and often 'outside' and even closed over night.

Anyone know the deal in Madrid? Or what time it opens?

I am hoping I can just party through!

Edit: just checked and there appears to be trains (Metros at least) running all night, so I guess it is open.

Also - don't think the metro runs through the night.......seems to stop at 1.30am

Was on the Google departure board. Checked again and last train is 23:44. First one is around 3am

Edit: you need to change the time/date to the 1st/2nd and it will come up with the times. No idea how accurate it is tho!

The first proper train out appears to be around 6am

We should all meet up and have their till off.
This sounds like what has happened to me. Had a bed in a hostel booked for Ä53.  Was told my cards didnt work, checked with my bank.and credit card company and the hotel didnt even try to debit my account.  The accommodation was then relisted at Ä264. Complained to booking.com and they said there was nothing they can do.  Bar for me after the match. Joshua is fighting. I am on the 7.45 train to Murcia Sunday morning before flying to Palma and back home from there Tuesday.

Is anyone driving from London?

Iím really running out of options on how to get to Madrid. I donít have a ticket but I just want to be there for the atmosphere and would be willing to take any trip to get there.

Is anyone, based in London or anywhere else, willing to hire a minibus or even just a car? If anyone is interested in this, and willing to plan it together, then let me know by responding to this post!  :wave

London City to Madrid via Porto Thursday, and Madrid to London City via Lisbon Monday (arriving 9.40 Tuesday) is £200. First option on Skyscanner.

If you were going to drive itís going to be days anyway and doubt it would cost less than two ton. Surely a better option than driving.

Tricky bit perhaps accommodation Friday and Saturday in Madrid but keep searching and bits pop up. I got a central apartment for 6 for £85 on the Saturday night yesterday day - £14 a man. Just donít expect to be in the same gaff Friday, Saturday, Sunday.

Nice one mate! Iíll give it a gander. One of my friends is out in Valencia for work for a few months so luckily I can kip on his couch after. Appreciate the recommendation mate

Still keep trying on Booking.com

Mixed dorm hostels up for grabs and under £100 - seems the robbing bastards are starting to see some sense. Keep trying, they do keep cropping up.

If you have Hilton or Marriott points (or are able to buy some), rooms for a one-night stay this Saturday have come available this morning.  There's the Hilton at the airport and around six central Marriott-affiliated hotels.

We had a hostel booked for 4 and managed to blag a 5th bed. We came in at 5am and the other fella in the room disappeared about 10 minutes after. So 5 of us were boxed off for £92.
