    Excellent place to stay in Madrid. Friendly, very clean and tidy. Also a very fun bar crawl on a Monday if you fancy it!

    Wow, what a fantastic hostel. The Hat was our third hostel on our five-week Europe trip, and the other two did not come close. I love the rainforest showerhead with the most pressure I have ever had. The staff was super polite and helpful, and the rooms were spotless and well-kept.

    I love this hostel, so did my travelling partner. It attracts great people and the staff are so accomodating and extra friendly. The room we had was a room of 8 women but it felt very spacious and the beds were very comfy. We even had a small balcony style window and two pillows each which felt very luxe. Love this place, can’t wait to stay again

    Great hostel, clean, nice staff, fun environment. The rooftop bar is always busy, only downside is if you aren't buying food/drinks there, there's not really a good place for hostel guests to relax and meet each other.

    Good hostel. Only stayed for one night and was easy to get to train stations and the airport. Had street noise, but that was expected since there is plenty of nightlife in Madrid. Overall a good experience

    Nice staff, good amenities like laundry, the showers in the dorm rooms were really big and there were additional bathrooms on the same floor. The rooftop bar was open to the public so was busy and not many other hostel people were up there.
