    2nd reservation with The Hat, didn't want to leave”

    Great staff, very clean and modern hostel, it's designed well. It's a social hostel rather than a party hostel (think wine and tapas nights instead of beer chugging events). Very suitable for adults that want to go out and make friends or get out and about to see Madrid.

    Really Amazing Hostel”

    Staff were extremely friendly and so helpful. Location of the hostel is unbeatable, about a 3 minute walk to Plaza Mayor. Rooms were very spacious and clean and plenty of storage space. Security was good (bathrooms actually had a lock!), internet was good. There's a laundry on the 4th floor, slightly expensive at 8euro a load but very convenient. Designed very well. I had a first floor room next to the lobby but it was still very quiet. Beds were comfortable, I had TWO actual comfortable pillows which is a rarity in hostels.

    The location itself is super nice. Only few minutes by walk can go all the famous tourist spot! Staff there are super super nice and friendly! Only one problem is they have party at Friday night, it was very noisy even it was already 1:30 in the morning. A drunk guy even came into our female room,but the staff solve the problem well on the next day.

    Nice place, but not very social”

    As a solo traveller, I'm looking for a social hostel where it's easy to meet others. This hostel is nice with good facilities (although the mattress had springs poking me, but I'm a side sleeper) but didn't have the space to get together with other travelers. There was a weird feeling about it because there was a rooftop restaurant that's open to the public and school groups were constantly staying at the hostel while I was there. I would not stay here again as there are better options for the same price range.

    Great value hostel with rooftop bar”

    While I only arrived early evening & flew out early the next morning, this hostel is located very close to Plaza Mayor & has a fantastic rooftop bar. You also receive a complimentary beer (it’s small) but a nice touch. They also seem to organise a number of activities....ie tapas preparation, walking tours & pub crawls.
