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!

    Dorm was clean and very comfortable. Staff was super helpful. Although we didn’t join in for any of the activities other than the walking tour (recommend for anyone arriving), the vibe in the lobby was great.

    We had an absolutely amazing stay at The Hat, we really couldn't have picked a better a hostel to stay in for our 3 night trip in Madrid. The location is perfect for seeing all the sites and is away from any main roads so noise is minimal. The rooms were so clean and the showers were excellent- very important when you are doing lots of walking! We stayed in a 6 bed dorm then a double; the double was well worth the extra money. Staff were so friendly and helpful and we couldn't have been happier!

    The Hat Madrid has very friendly staff, a nice main area and layout. It is in the center of the center of Madrid and therefore very convenient to walk anywhere. The private female dorms have their own bathroom which was awesome as well! Bring your own lock for the room lockers though.

    Great hostel close to so many things! Was in a private room and noticed that the housekeeper kind of just forgot to finish cleaning my room, as was evidenced by the unmade bed and her leaving behind her rags. It was fine, but a little weird. Noise level was a bit loud late at night as people in neighboring rooms came back from being out, but it was short lived. Staff was lovely and helpful from start to finish.

    Very clean and comfortable hostel but I think the Pubcrawl and dinner was overpriced. The room and everything was great, I was in the female only room. I also was a solo tracker and managed to meet people through the walking tour and through the dinner. The rooftop bar is great, but I think it should be open later. Staff was very friendly and helpful, I just would say it needs to be more of a social environment!
