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!

    Excellent hostel. My experience in Madrid was perfect! The bathrooms were always clean and the lockers in each room are very big, so you won't have problems even if you have a really big bag. The atmosphere is super nice and it is a beautiful hostel. We took a free walking tour with Carlos from The Pubcrawl Company and it was an awesome experience to meet new people. Later on that same day we went together to the pub crawl at night. I would totally stay there again!

    Absolutely awesome except the “kitchen” was a microwave, toaster, kettle and sink with nowhere to cook properly. Aside from that it was the best hostel I’ve ever stayed at!

    I think the Hat has to be the place to stay in Madrid if you are traveling with friends, although I am not sure if it is the best place for solo traveler because I only saw big groups. The rooftop bar/restaurant is the big winner here. The hostel overall has a very chill vibe, and gives you time away from the hustle bustle of Madrid while keeping you engaged and entertained.

    Loved having the 4 room dorm, the shower was fantastic. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The location was so central to everything. Only small issue was the last breakfast where it had not been restocked and had to ask for bread, glaas' s etc.

    Overall really good Hostel, but for me way to big. If you prefer smaller traveller hub like hostels, rather look for something else. Felt like a smaller Hotel. But if you don't mind tht its really good place. Top location and (rather expensive but nice looking) bar o the rooftop. staff was super friendly and helpful.

    Very Good

    The hostel has a nice atmosphere, super cool design, wonderful roof top terrace and perfect location in town. Bathrooms for the dorms are separated: one room for toilet, one for shower and basins in the dorm room. This leads to quite noisy traffic since people of people washing hands and brushing teeth during night which I found quite disturbing and makes me rate the price-performance-ratio rather low. Yet, stuff was helpful, friendly, additional offerings well organized, etc.

    The reception staff was very friendly, however the staff on the rooftop was incredibly rude. The rooftop is not a place where people staying at the hostel can hang out at but it's a bar which also hosts private events for externals. Smoke from people having a cigarette after the bar closed got into our room. The hostel itself is nice, the hostel staff is nice and the location is really good - however I feel like displaying pictures of the rooftop as if it is part of the hostel is misleading.
