Fabulous 8.8 From 46 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!

Loved it!
I loved the hotel, it was my first time in spain and the staff were really helpful. Their weren't a lot of visitors due to miss Rona. The view was amazing and the city is so beautiful and easy to navigate. I'll definitely be back with a friend.

Got there a little early. They did allow me to put my bags, but check in was pretty much 15:00 bang on. Avoid the pub crawl. It’s 15 euros and it’s to the worst bars and clubs

Vibrant , buzzing fantastic just like Madrid city
The Hat people were extremely pleasant and helpful. Great breakfast for 4 euros on the rooftop and great rooftop bar for sunset in the evening for your drinks

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!

Buena opción, a unos pasos de Plaza Mayor
Excelente opción por el precio. Falta que den toallas. Dicen qué hay desayuno pero el único día que me levanté temprano no había nada.

Excelente custo-benéfico
Excelente hostel com ótima localização, 3 minutos de caminhada da Plaza maior, quartos reformados e em ótimo estado. Café da manhã bom no local por 4 euros. Excelente custo beneficio. Não há toalhas na reserva, aluguei por 2 euros.
