    I went to madrid solo and my experience at the hat couldn’t have been better! During my 2 nights the staff was super lovely and always helpful. The bed is clean and comfy. The atmosphere is also amazing and great to meet new people. I went to the pub crawl, which isn’t something I would recommend if you are looking to go out at local places but is very good to meet other backpackers and the guides are also very very nice. Don’t miss the walking tour, she is great and has the greatest tips ever!

    This hostel was great in terms of needing somewhere to stay while visiting Madrid. If you’re looking for a chill hostel with good amenities and rest, this is it. If you’re looking for a super social hostel to make lots of friends to party with... move on.

    I had a wonderful 4 day stay at the Hat. The staff was very welcoming and friendly. Even though I arrived a few hours before check in, they still put my luggage in a secure storage room and did the same when I checked out so I could explore Madrid for a few more hours before my flight. The rooftop terrace is lovely, the wine was good and loved their pincho de la tortilla! Only reason that it’s not a 10/10 is because of the occasional sewage smell from the bathroom.

    The Hat is one of the best hostels i have stayed at in Madrid and seems to become increasingly popular and busy with groups. Location is perfect for exploring the main tourist attractions on foot and very close to the metro for excursions further a field. Staff is always very helpfull and accommodating.

    Location wins everything! right at the heart of most the attractions of Madrid. Really easy to access both food and shopping by walking. Very clean and stylish hostel, and staffs are very nice and helpful. Toliet super clean. Also nice street view from the window. If you don't mind the room is a bit small, everything are good in what you'll need for travelling.

    My sister and I had a great experience with The Hat Madrid! It was our first time in Spain and we had no trouble finding the hostel, just follow the instructions given and use google maps. The staff is wonderful! Free walking tour and tapas at dinneroffered daily. We shared a 4 female bed room w/ a shared bathroom and it was clean, warm, and comfortable (the blanket especially!). Our room had a view outside. The Hat Madrid also offers breakfast for 4 euros. Thank you for a great stay!

    Great hostel! Felt very safe, very cleanly. However, rooms had a sewage smell from the bathroom which was kind of hard to get over (for me). Smelt particularly bad after the bathroom was used. But beautiful rooftop, amazing facilities and very well run.
