Host families...tried it? Recommendations while in Madrid

by RN4kids Online Now May 1, 2009 at 10:21 PM

Next summer my 17 year old independent and adventurous son is going to Spain to participate in a summer program (teaching English) for one week. He would like to stay longer in Madrid but not at a teen camp or a language school program. I am concerned about safety and would not feel so comfortable with him at a hotel solo for a week or two (he wants to do the same thing in LONDON).
Any VT have experience in finding a suitable host family while in Madrid? found a website called OleSpain that helps find host families for 180 Euro...but I an not too sure if there are reputible.
Any suggestions or ideas on how to approach this?
Thank you
Ana
