This seems more like an hotel than an hostal. 10 minutes walking from from the city center, the room is but big but as the right size and is very clean. The beds are comfortable and although breakfast is not included in the room price you can take it a la carte in the adjoining restaurant for a very affordable... More

I stayed in the Hostal Carmen for one night and was pleasantly surprised by the comfort and size of the bedroom and bathroom. I didn't eat in the restaurant so can't comment on that. WIFI reception was excellent in the bedroom and staff were friendly and efficient. I would highly recommend the Carmen for value and quality,

We three booked online in the afternoon, arrived evening, prompt efficient service. Bar area was echoey with people but quiet in room 103 above thankfully. Good WiFi.

Good location close to the centre. Well decorated and furnished room with a good ensuite bathroom. The bar can be a bit noisy but wasn't a problem in the room. Stayed for 2 nights and would happily stay again.

Good value for money with friendly staff, comfortable room, good shower and bed. Managed to park outside, but private parking available nearby for a fee. We had one meal in the Hostal restaurant and we enjoyed it. We will use this hostal again if in the vacinity.

We were staying one night in Zafra and Hostal Carmen turned out to be a really good option. Good value, clean, with everything you could need for one night. More like a 3 star hotel than a 2 star hostal. Reception staff friendly. Free parking outside. Would stay again.

Excellent value, good location, very clean, spacious rooms. Great with free wifi even in restaurant adjoining hotel. Downside, no English speaking channels. Breakfast selection poor. No tea or coffee in rooms. Overall great value for money and nice place.
