Nice vibe, good location.

The location is excellent, right by Plaza Mayor. The overall 'feel' is great, more like a hotel than a backpacking hostel. The free sangria workshop every evening is a great way to meet people.

The options at breakfast were a bit limited, but it was good value for money. There were still towels in the room left by people who had checked out, it would have been good if those had been taken away.

Everything is good except small bathrooms :/

The only thing that i don't like is small bathrooms. I accidentally took a shower while trying to wash my hair 🥴.

Excellence of THE HAT

Excellent hostel, one of the best I had experienced in my past 10 months of travel! This place is full of energetic crews, who turns on great exuberant atmosphere in the lobby. Location is fantasric, easy walk into the heart of Plaza Mayor and others city streets. Cleaning was well done too!

A pleasant budget stay aside from cramped and fairly basic accommodations.

Just outside Plaza Mayor, the location and value for its amenities are unbeatable. It is styled with cute, hipster furnishings and decor that are appealing to young budget travelers. The staff were helpful and gave us tips and a city map to explore. The rooftop bar is nice, though since it was winter we didn't see it get much use and most people hung out in the lobby and the "Cave" (basement kitchen). We attended their free sangria hour which is a fun opportunity to mingle with other travelers. We also enjoyed the free walking tour they offered through experienced freelance tour guides. The beds are firm which we liked, and the blankets are sufficient for sleeping in winter.

We stayed in a 6-bunk room, and the room was long and narrow so our bed was tucked on the far short wall partly behind another bed, making it a little hard to get in and out of. For the price of the accommodations it's reasonable that the rooms are on the small side, but maximizing capacity in a room like that means a suboptimal bed layout. There were no tables or any other flat surfaces for your items except for a single chair (in a room for 6 people) so all your belongings would have to go on your bed, locker, wall hooks, or the floor. Also, the shared bathroom floor would get quite wet from the shower, and I wish they would've offered a bath mat for that.

Felt like a sweet home stay

It’s clean and located near city centre. The staff are very helpful and friendly. There’s even a washing machine and dryer — exceptionally useful for travellers who are backpacking

Unreal location, helpful staff and comfortable rooms.

The hat Madrid was a pleasant surprise! The location was fantastic. Close to plaza mayor and Sol metro station where you could easily visit all the touristy Spots and much more. The staff were polite, super friendly and helpful. My room was clean and the bathroom was also clean. Even the cleaning staff were super nice and helpful. They clean everyday. The beds were comfortable and had curtains which was lovely. Madrid as a whole is an amazingly underrated city and I recommend this place to anyone visiting Madrid. I would absolutely stay here again.

The only thing that I did not like were the pillows. They were quite uncomfortable for me personally but otherwise everything was great. Since the location is so central loud noise from the streets can be expected but it didn’t bother me.

Would definitely stay here again.

It was located right near the center and surrounded by lots of good restaurants. Always people around so it was safe to walk at night as well. The staff were super friendly and provided a map of the city. The facilities were very clean and nice.
