Fabulous 8.8 From 32 reviews

Very Good 8.0
This is not about the hostel itself but the area is touristy to an extreme. As in during the nighttime bustle you have to compete with hordes of tourists and there is not enough room on the sidewalk to maneuver. Very clean and pleasant hostel though. I appreciate the sangria/tapas activity every night.

I will be back
I absolutely LOVED the staff! They were so incredibly kind and made me feel so comfortable. Shoutout to Pat and (I’m so sorry I’ve forgotten your name because we had so many conversations) the man with the incredible facial hair. You guys filled my stay with smiles!

More than expected! Highly recommended
I've never stayed in a hostel before, this was my first experience and I was so impressed. On check in the hotel reception made me feel so welcome, was extremely informative and handed me a map of all the highlights to see and do. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable and other guests were very respectful in the late hours and early mornings. The rooftop is really good for tapas and meeting people from other countries! The Hostel is really well decorated. I'll definitely recommend The Hat Madrid! Five stars from me!

MOHAMED Kamel, au2 night trip
Good 6.0
No era muy brillante.
Tenía muchas ganas de quedarme en The Hat, pero me decepcionó. Primero, reservé un dormitorio femenino para 4 personas. No era femenino cuando llegué, lo cual corrigieron rápidamente. Sin embargo, era un dormitorio para 6 personas. Las camas solo tienen una sábana muy delgada y áspera (lleva tu propia manta). Pensé que el bar de la azotea estaría bien, pero al estar en el piso de abajo no era agradable. Había mucho ruido todas las noches y podía oír cómo movían mesas/sillas. La sensación era menos de un hostal y más de un hotel. El único espacio real común es el área de la cocina, que no me impresionó positivamente por sí misma. No hay ningún fogón, solo una pequeña nevera. Básicamente puedes usar esta área para recalentar alimentos pero no para cocinar. No hay muchas oportunidades para socializar con otros huéspedes. Debido al bar en la azotea, hay mucha gente que entra y sale para eso. Dicho todo esto, el personal era agradable. Está limpio y bien cuidado. El evento de la sangría para socializar estuvo bien, pero esa es realmente la única oportunidad de socializar con otros huéspedes.

Original review:
"Less than stellar"
I was really looking forward to my stay at The Hat but was disappointed. First off, I booked a 4 person female dorm. It was not female when I arrived which was quickly corrected. It was a 6 person dorm though. The beds only have a very thin, rough sheet (bring your own blanket). I thought the rooftop bar would be nice but being the floor below it was not nice. Every night it was extremely loud and could hear tables/ chairs moving. This felt less like a hostel and more like a hotel. The only real common space is the kitchen area which is less than impressive in itself. There is no stovetop and only a small refrigerator. You can basically use this area to reheat food but not cooking. There’s not much opportunity for socializing with other guests. Due to the rooftop bar there’s a lot of people in and out for that. All that being said, the staff was nice. It’s clean and well kept. The sangria event for socializing was good but that’s really the only opportunity to socialize with other guests.
