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.

El ascensor molesta un poco, necesita talvez una manutenção, e se tivesse desayuno aunque algo basico seria genial. Mas en general el hostal es super agradable. Me senti muy a gusto!

This hostel locates in the center of Madrid. It is only a few minutes walk to Plaza Mayor and 10 minutes walk to Puerta del Sol. Staffs are very friendly, speaking English fluently and working diligently to provide efficient service. There was a shower booth in the room where I stayed, and the door of the booth was made of glass. As I stayed in a mixed dormitory, this made me hesitate to take a shower.

La ubicación, la limpieza y la cordialidad de todo el personal son excelentes. NO TIENE ESPACIOS COMUNES. La terraza es un bar, como cualquier otro de Madrid donde puede ir cualquier madrileño y además es caro ! . El Hall de entrada, está casi siempre ocupado con EVENTOS, FIESTAS, CLASES DE BAILE etc. etc. para gente de Madrid, no son fiestas del hostel...queda claro ? Hasta la cocina (donde dan el desayuno) la ocupan para dar clases de inglés....
