My friend and I visited the rooftop bar here one night. The atmosphere was great and the drinks were cheap which was all we were looking for. It didn’t have a view of the city like we expected but it was a very friendly environment and made for a nice night.

I came with no plan in Madrid. But thanks to the perfect location of THE HAT, I get to see the famous places by walking. At night it’s a must to go to the rooftop bar. Not only because we have nice offer of a free beer there, but also the nice bar and the chilling atmosphere. The room is clean and the bed is really comfortable so A nice sleep is confirmed. I really enjoyed my stat

Excellent location, clean and comfortable bed, helpful staff a lot of interesting places ( Plaza Mayor, San Miguel Market, Puerta del Sol etc..) The top root terrace very nice to chill out, I was there four week ago it was quiet a bit cold Madrid but still beautiful and the streets full of people. The hotel uses a unique biomass source of power, which helps energy consumption. There are dorms, of course, but also private doubles. I slept for a night in a room shared with other people, each one has his bunk and a big drawer that is easy to put a padlock (bring your padlock). It was my first experiences in a place like that and I will do again!

The place is pretty nice and the location quite convinient ... from there you can walk tp the most interesting places . I really liked the vibe . The rooms were pretty clean and comfortable. I would definetly reccomend it

Highly recommend this place. More of a hotel than a hostel with great, helpful staff and lovely rooms. Steps away from Plaza Mayor and within walking distance to multiple good restaurants and bars, not to mention metro stops if you want to see more of Madrid. Room (6 person with private bath) was comfortable and clean and if the private bathroom was taken, the others were just steps down the hall. Staff was wonderful and put up with my questions and tiny problems. Once again, highly recommend this place and will definitely be returning!

I booked the room last minute so I wasn't expecting much, but what an amazing place! Super nice vibe, 5 min away from a metro station, everything is clean and the staff is amazing, super nice and helpful. I went alone and felt pretty comfortable, so I recommend it even if you're a solo traveler!!! Also the price was not bad, so price/quality makes it super worth it! Really loved it! Keep on the good vibes!

Impressive efficiency staffs and very systemic modern hostel. Clean & reasonably room / bed rate for such a central location next to Plaza Mayer. Variety & good quality breakfast...what more is the open air roof top bar is a plus+. Easier to walk and explore city while staying here.

The Hat is a really smart, clean hostel and a very affordable option for a stay in Madrid. The whole place has a lovely vibe and the staff were so incredibly helpful - we were so grateful for their help with printing tickets and translation! We had a 4 bed delux room which was very comfortable, with decent air con, sockets and lights by each bed and huge lockers. The rooftop bar is open to anyone but the hostel feels very secure and wasn't at all noisy once in our room. The location is great, with the Plaza Mayor only a few steps away. Would recommend staying here and would stay again.

We had our wedding recently on the roof top of The Hat and I can tell you that you will be delighted with the sincere hospitality of all staff members. Also perfect Food, service and timing. Andrea & Baris

This is a great hostel. Very cool rooftop bar and patio, provides a nice place to meet people. The rooms and bathrooms are modern and very clean. Wifi is quite good as well throughout the hostel. Lastly the hostel is pretty centrally located, only a few minute walk to Plaza Mayor.
