Property Description


The Hat Madrid is the first Boutique Hostel in the city. Located in a mansion in the best tourist area, at Plaza Mayor, a 3-minute walk from Puerta del Sol, Gran Vía, and La Latina, the city's most entertaining nightlife district.

A place with the perfect location to explore Madrid leisurely, enjoying every step.

It offers private and shared rooms, exclusive for girls, families, and groups of friends.

All rooms feature magnificent natural light, private or shared bathrooms, air conditioning, and state-of-the-art WIFI.

We understand the importance of breakfast for travelers, that's why we offer a hotel buffet breakfast at hostel prices.

In addition to a 24-hour check-in service, The Hat also provides free activities and an assistant to guide you so that you don't miss out on any details of the city's vibrant nightlife.

The attic houses one of Madrid's best rooftop bars. A place to watch Madrid's best sunset with a good glass of wine in hand.

And all of this while showing the utmost respect for the environment, as The Hat is the city's first hotel establishment to use Biomass as an energy source.

Need anything else? Just ask, we're sure we can provide it.

Our establishment has bunk beds and raised beds in some of its rooms. This circumstance should be taken into account during the stay, as well as the potential risks it may entail. By staying here, the customer accepts this, thus waiving any action against The Hat Madrid in case of an accident.

Towels can be rented at the reception for 3€.

At check-out, it's free until 2:00 PM, after which it costs 3€ per customer. If you need additional days, we offer a price of 9€ per day per piece of luggage. Please ensure your belongings are labeled and have a numbered receipt for each piece of luggage you leave with us.

There is no curfew.

For groups, we will do our best to accommodate everyone in the same rooms, but it's not always possible.
However, we do not accept bookings for more than 8 people. Reservations for more than 8 people will be automatically canceled without a refund of the deposit paid to HostelWorld at the time of booking.

perfect hostel. Very friendly staff. Modern and clean inside. Great location. Rooftop bar is cool. only thing I’d say is don’t bother with the breakfast (not worth 6€, a very small selection), and the showers could be warmer. I’d recommend this to anyone going to Madrid!

Super nice hostel, clean, helpful staff good breakfast and well situated. The things I dislike is, they have a small kitchen yes but you can’t go eat when they have event ( which happened the 2 evening I planned to go.. there is 3 benches so if there’s already someone, you can’t eat there as the table are reserved fir the event..). Also if you have the top of bunk bed you don’t have curtain to hide the light..
