First of all, I would say that everything was clean and the reception is cosy and well furnished. We loved our stay. But we were three, so we had a room for 4 persons and the guy was so weird. He slept the whole day (when we went back at 19h he was still in bed) we couldn't talk to... More

When I first arrived I was first amazed at the minimalist design and the cleanliness of everything. I LOVED it. Great dining area downstairs, nice lobby, trendy music playing, lobby bar open during the day, rooftop terrace bar and snack bar open in the evening. The restrooms were very clean and stylish. I will absolutely stay here when I am... More

Great boutique hostel, located literally behind Plaza Mayor, super clean, brand new, amazing roof-top terrace with a bar. Breakfast very good also. There was a small problem which was immediately taken care of by the reception staff- amazing people really! Highly recommended.

There is a reason this hostel is rated so highly but you do have to pay extra for it (and it was totally worth it). Everything is very nicely designed and you get a surprising amount of privacy even in the shared dorm. The breakfast was great and staff were very friendly and helpful.

This August I stayed twice for some days in Madrid at The Hat. The hostel is really nice, clean and kinda stylish. A drink at the roof top bar before you head out to party is a great way to start the night in La Latina. But what is the most amazing thing about The Hat is the staff. And... More

Excellent place! Clean, confortable, friendly staff, good location. I have cero complains about this place. I stayed in a shared room and also shared the bathroom. Everything was very spacious and clean. I was traveling solo and I fell super face the entire time.

We stayed at THE HAT with a group of 20 students and really enjoyed it. The location is perfect, it's very nice and clean, everything is basically brand new. They have a very nice rooftop-bar and the breakfast is exceptional for hostel-standards (bread, fruits, yogurth, tea, coffee, hot chocolate etc.). Very recommendable!

I agree with my colleague travellers from Australia and Italia. Couda a youth albergue be advertising itself as member of IYHT and yet not care if members showed up thinking they would get a rebate ? Woulda owner (old Madrid family, I was told) care more about his own image by being photographed in the lobby than the essential stuff... More

I had a great time in Madrid and a lot of credit for that had the Hat Hostel. First of all, the Hostel was recently opened, so you can imagine that all the furniture is new and very cool. The place looks exactly like in the photos and it's very clean. I love the architecture and the way this Hostel... More

We ran into The Hat by accident and went up to the rooftop bar for a drink. Beautiful setting, decor, nice staff (not the fastest but good). Just a little peace of heaven for some tea, beer or gun! We do recommend it!
