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.

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?

    I had a great experience here! Staff was wonderful, everything was very clean, water pressure was great and the free sangria at night was a cool way to meet other travelers. I would recommend this hostel to anyone! Location was perfect as well, most places were walkable!

    I had a great stay at this hostel. My room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The location was great as it is right next to Plaza Mayor and a 5 minute walk to Plaza del Sol, meaning it is very close to some great shops and restaurants. I loved the walking tour and pub crawl that was offered as well. My only complaint was that the only thing offered for bedding was a sheet, so I did get cold at night with the AC, so I recommend bringing warmer clothes to sleep in.

    The Hat was a lively, clean and comfortable place to stay. Perfect spot for a solo traveler because they have fun happenings every night (tapas, pub crawls etc) that allow you to meet other people. The rooftop bar is beautiful and the downstairs lobby is welcoming and cute. It feels very safe becuase their key cards are both for the individua halls and rooms. They offer giant lockers to hold your things and sturdy wood bunk beds that don’t creak and move. Would recommend The Hat!

    It was a pretty solid hostel. Clean, comfortable, good location not only because it was close to a lot of the spots to see but it also was on a more quiet street, and the staff seemed to make an effort to engage their guests in events. I really have no major complaints. It's probably not directed to the more hardcore backpacker.
