Where are the best areas to live in Madrid?

I'm about to move to Madrid and am looking for flats but have no idea how to narrow down the search. Can anyone tell me which are the best areas for students? I'm looking for somewhere fun with lots going on but not too expensive.

    Malasaña/Chueca! I lived by Alonso Martinez which in my opinion was the best place but more somewhere slightly cheaper try Malasaña which is about 5 min away. Stay clear of Sol and all the tourists
