    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in! Very clean, great location, secure - staff even tags luggage and the storage room is kept locked. Individual plugins and lockers for each bed. Rooftop bar and restaurant are super awesome! Great vibe, friendly staff. Would highly recommend.

    I dont often write reviews, but The Hat was the best hostel experience I have had. The staff are all incredibly friendly (thanks Silvia for dealing with my imperfect Spanish so early in the morning and to the night staff for offering me a coffee so late at night). The people staying there were also great - it was so easy as a solo traveller to meet people both in my room and through the pub crawl, which was surprisingly fun for a Wednesday night! The facilities are also very well maintained.

    The hostel was great, central for walking, clean and comfortable. Free tapas were great to meet people and the bar in the lobby was fun for the same reason. The staff was so helpful. The only disappointment was the roof bar was a sit down restaurant open to the public. Everyone I met agreed it would be better if a portion of that was set aside as standing room for hostel guests to meet and mingle, as it was a central reason many of us booked staying there but it was definitely not a hostel bar.

    Just perfect. Can't beat the location. The bed's are Soo comfortable. The pub crawl and walking tours partner up with other hostels, so there's always a decent number of people to meet on those. I would highly recommend both. Staff was friendly and accommodating. Just a pleasant experience all around.

    This place was amazing!! I stayed for 4 nights and loved it!! Amazing map of the city that can be requested upon check in that shows the highly touristic and highly local areas, leading to amazing food finds! Loved the walking distance to all major attractions. Also double pillows meant such a good sleep throughout my stay. Would stay here again!!!

    The Hat is a clean, modern hostel for single or couple travelers. I wouldn’t recommend for people traveling with families. Location is great! Once you step out the doors you will see people walking around and you’ll find a lot of restaurants, bars and shops near by. I would definitely stay at The Hat when I visit Madrid.

    The Hat is a gem in the heart of Madrid. The rooms are clean and beds comfortable and clean. Fellow hostelers are from all over. Although they skew young, as an older traveler I was pleased to see others my age as well. They have closets or drawers big enough to put your suitcase in. It felt very secure with a padlock (bring one) Take the free walking tour; well worth the tip you’ll pay!

    Fantastic hostel! The beds are super comfy and you get 2 big fluffy pillows! The water pressure in the shower was amazing! There’s not a big kitchen, you can’t really cook anything but there’s a fridge and microwave etc. I think it was 10 beds in the dorm that I stayed in and it was really spacious and comfortable. There’s a little shelf next to the bed and a reading light and an electric socket. Everything you need and really comfortable, seriously a really good value hostel.
