I am a 36 year old woman looking to stay with a family while I study in Madrid August 2006 through May 2007. I would like to be close to Cibeles, maybe Chueca? Anyone have ideas on how to find a family that has a room to rent?

"Host Families" typically only work with educational establishments or language academies directly so if you're in Madrid to study Spanish I would ask the institution at which you're studying to see if they have participating host families.

Apart from this, you could check for bedrooms in (typically) "family homes". These wouldn't necessarily be "host families" but rather just bedrooms in a family's house where some food may (or may not) be offered but I don't think it's intended so much as a cultural exchange as it is, simply, that they're renting a room that would otherwise be empty. These rooms are usually rented by the night but no doubt they'd give you a monthly rate. Good luck!

Anyone else have suggestions? Saludos, MadridMan
