Welcome to our hostel

Welcome to The Hat – the first Boutique Hostel in Madrid. Fit for royalty, we are located in a palace within the touristic heart of the city, Plaza Major, just 3 minutes’ walk from Puerta del Sol, Gran Via and La Latina – a prime spot for seeing the city on foot with no rush, for daytime explorers and night owls alike.

We have private and shared rooms for females only, families and groups. All of our rooms are well-lit, air-conditioned, and most have private bathrooms, a balcony and super-fast WIFI. And to top it off, we’re green friendly; the first hotel in town using Biomass energy.

The palace itself is a Madrid attraction – with big common areas such as a lobby, a special cave and one of the best roof top bars in the city. During the day you can even sunbathe on the terrace. We’re open 24 hours, and offer an exciting range of tours, bike rentals and ambassadors to make the most of local nightlife.

I stayed in the basement 10-bed dormitory room B1 for four (4) nights. The price was very low; the value was excellent. I liked Wi-Fi in the room, private bunk bed, individual light, electric charging outlet, clean sheets, pillow, clean toilets, clean showers, etc. But the dormitory room B1 door was very noisy. Ten people come and go many times during the night. Here are the specific door problems: 1. Door hinges squeak. 2. Door is slightly too large for the door jam, so is not safe/secure from outsiders. 3. Door slams shut. Here is what the Hat Hostel needs to do to please fix these problems. It will take only about an hour of maintenance: 1. Oil or spray WD-40 on the two door hinges. 2. Sand down the door side maybe about 1 millimeter so it fits inside the door jam. 3. Loosen the spring mechanism on top that automatically closes the door, so that the door will close slowly and gently, rather than slam shut fast and loud (as it does now). I told the front-desk staff about these problems, but nothing was done. So I will post online negative reviews of the Hat Hostel until these problems are solved. Thanks!

Cómodo e ingenioso. Perfecta mezcla entre el edificio antiguo y la rehabilitación moderna. Fantástica ubicación. Impecable trato y muy buena relación calidad / precio. No se puede pedir más.
