Exceptional 10.0
Very Pleasant Stay
The Hat was nice and clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. I appreciated having an elevator. The free Sangria gatherings were a great place to meet people from all over the world. Being near Plaza Mayor meant a lot of eating places nearby.

Vibrant , buzzing fantastic just like Madrid city
The Hat people were extremely pleasant and helpful. Great breakfast for 4 euros on the rooftop and great rooftop bar for sunset in the evening for your drinks

More than expected! Highly recommended
I've never stayed in a hostel before, this was my first experience and I was so impressed. On check in the hotel reception made me feel so welcome, was extremely informative and handed me a map of all the highlights to see and do. The rooms were extremely clean, comfortable and other guests were very respectful in the late hours and early mornings. The rooftop is really good for tapas and meeting people from other countries! The Hostel is really well decorated. I'll definitely recommend The Hat Madrid! Five stars from me!

Very good 8.0
This is not about the hostel itself but the area is touristy to an extreme. As in during the nighttime bustle you have to compete with hordes of tourists and there is not enough room on the sidewalk to maneuver. Very clean and pleasant hostel though. I appreciate the sangria/tapas activity every night.

I will be back
I absolutely LOVED the staff! They were so incredibly kind and made me feel so comfortable. Shoutout to Pat and (I’m so sorry I’ve forgotten your name because we had so many conversations) the man with the incredible facial hair. You guys filled my stay with smiles!

Good 6.0
Less than stellar
I was really looking forward to my stay at The Hat but was disappointed. First off, I booked a 4 person female dorm. It was not female when I arrived which was quickly corrected. It was a 6 person dorm though. The beds only have a very thin, rough sheet (bring your own blanket). I thought the rooftop bar would be nice but being the floor below it was not nice. Every night it was extremely loud and could hear tables/ chairs moving. This felt less like a hostel and more like a hotel. The only real common space is the kitchen area which is less than impressive in itself. There is no stovetop and only a small refrigerator. You can basically use this area to reheat food but not cooking. There’s not much opportunity for socializing with other guests. Due to the rooftop bar there’s a lot of people in and out for that. All that being said, the staff was nice. It’s clean and well kept. The sangria event for socializing was good but that’s really the only opportunity to socialize with other guests.
