    This may be my favorite hostel ever; the overall atmosphere is wonderful. The staff is so sweet; genuine and caring about your experience. The roof top bar is wonderful; and this location is great, walkable distance to a lot! I will continue to recommend this place to anyone who asks where to stay in Madrid!

    The staff were very friendly. The rooms were nice and clean. The rooftop bar was absolutely beautiful. I did not come to this hostel to socialise but instead to relax on my last day. The rooftop bar is not a great place to meet people but it's definitely worth a visit! The demographic appeared to be more French & Spanish, rather than English from my experience.

    A really nice hostel with great rooftop, wish I spent more time! Good atmosphere all around and daily activities were a nice plus. One thing that wasnt great is that our 6 bed dorm only had 4 lockers, it wasnt full when I was there so I just used another.

    The location is perfect, and the locker in my room was very spacious. That being said, the room I stayed in felt very sterile and the bathroom lacked paper towels or a hand dryer. The upstairs terrace is beautiful, and the lobby is very nice too. But I found it a little difficult as a solo traveler to meet people who weren’t in the same room as me. If you’re traveling in a group, I would recommend The Hat. The staff members are very nice and it’s a great spot in the heart of the city.

    One set of bathrooms for the entire floor for which you have to leave your room and sometimes the entire room block to access. This means you need to bring your room keycard with you, yet there is no shelf to put the keycard (or your clothes for that matter) except the one directly under the shower where it gets wet. Also mattress was terrible, couldn't sleep the first night because I could feel the springs digging into my back and no position was comfortable. The rest was good.

    Incredible location, seconds walk from Plaza Mayor. Super clean and has a cool vibe. Alma at reception is incredibly kind and bubbly. But sadly I found a few staff members to be unfriendly and make me feel unwelcome. Also there is no stove but there’s a microwave and a toaster

    Very Good

    The Hat Madrid is a gorgeous hostel to stay at, but it can feel slightly lonely at times. The facilities are all maintained extremely well with clean bathrooms, sheets, etc. However, the structure of the hostel, specifically the Rooftop Bar didn't allow for a warm and cozy space for just hostel members to meet and enjoy each other's company. It felt too much like a business. That was my only gripe with the hostel.

    Terrible place. Service was horrible, showed up and they tried to say I had 2 reservations, even though I had cancelled one and it was clearly a duplicate, they charged my credit card anyways, which was ****. They then proceeded to fill all the beds, how does that make sense, charge me for an extra 4 beds and fill them? They’re s*****g. They had no socializing, rude employees and always put females in the mixed dorms. This place is a joke, loud, minimal amenities and terrible customer service.
