Here at The Hat Madrid we have the friendly vibe of a hostel plus the luxuries of a plush hotel! Our amazing common areas include a restaurant and bar, as well as a cool rooftop terrace and solarium. Air-con inside means you'll be protected from those hot sunny rays. We also put on free events, including city walking tours. As well as being the first boutique hostel in town, we're also the first to use biomass as an energy source. We're big fans of eco living so we cut down our water and electricity usage where we can.


The Hat Madrid is located centrally in buzzing Plaza Mayor. To get here from the airport, take the line 8 subway to Nuevos Ministerios. Then take the city train to Sol station and we're a 5-minute walk. Popular sights like the Puerta del Sol, Grand Via and La Latina are right nearby. To head further out, subway station Tirso de Molina is 4 minutes' walk. From there, you can take the U1 line to get around the city – and to the nearest train station, Atocha Cercanias.

Rooms and Dorms

Flying solo and want to make friends? Opt for a fun shared dorm. We also have female-only rooms, and ones especially for groups if you’re travelling with friends. If you'd like your own bathroom, we also have en-suite rooms. Bed linen and Wi-Fi is free, and you can rent towels for a small fee if you want to save on case space.

Extras and activities

Our multi-lingual staff know Madrid inside out, and can give you tips on where to find the best tapas or cocktails and show off to your Instagram followers. First time in town? Rent a bike from reception and grab one of our free maps. In the evenings, we’ll get you into the city’s coolest clubs – for free!

    This is a great hostel in a great location. The rooms are very simple but nicely designed. The beds are made of wood and are very comfortable. Every bed has a lamp, socket and place for storage. The hotel runs on biomass which is great. The rooftop terrace & bar has a great vibe, I did enjoy my time at The Hat and will certainly be back.

    Well this is an amazing hostel. Totally empty due to the current COVID situation so cannot really comment on atmosphere but the roof bar is lovely, if a little expensive. We stayed in a private dorm which was absolutely hotel standard. Our friend stayed in the dorm which he was also very satisfied with. The staff were so friendly and went out of their way to help us. They hooked us up with a parking spot for our van which is not an easy job in Madrid. The location is great. Would return for sure

    I stay at the Hat often when I'm in town. Always a pleasure to stay, with possibly the friendliest, most professional hostel staff in Madrid. They helped me a lot, especially with regard to extending my stay since I was in town to apartment hunt. Looking forward to joining them again for rooftop drinks one day.

    It was an excellent choice. I would totally stay there again if I were to be in Madrid again. The rooftop is lovely, the rooms are clean and comfy and the staff is super nice and always willing to help. It's literally a 30 seconds walk from Plaza Mayor and the closest metro station is Sol which is about a 5min walk.

    I had a lovely time at Hat Madrid. The location is perfect, staff are friendly and the rooftop is really beautiful with a good ambiance. One of the nicest hostels I’ve ever stayed in. I travelled immediately after COVID lockdown restrictions lifted so unfortunately there were no travellers and not much of a vibe, it was hard to meet people as a solo traveller but that’s not the hostels fault. I still had a pleasant stay and would definitely recommend it!!

    This hostel is wonderfull, clean, fully equipped kitchen, hearty staff, good location. Rooms are a bit small ,no view from the window the view is to the building infront. Also from the roof there is no view, this is actually a restaurant/bar and most of the customers are people who do not sleep in the hostel .. It is not pleasant to sit there if you do not order something.
