Hostal Zabala, Madrid
Great budget hostel, clean and great location
The hostal is with very nice location. Very close to Santa Anna square where is the best place to eat in Madrid (according to me). Very kind women at the reception who unfortunately does not speak English but is very helpful with information and anything you need. There is everyday cleaning and the wi fi is very good, we were a group of six with 3 double rooms (#11, #5 and #6) in room #6 the wi fi was not very good but in all other rooms was ok. There is very close metro station (Anton Martin) and we are very glad that we have a late flight back and the hostel allowed to leave our baggage and come and take it in the noon. I definitely recommend this place and if we come back to Madrid we will stay there again. You do not have to leave your keys and can enter and go out without any problem, hot water and heating very good and all the time. None of the 3 room had any problems. It is not noisy and the street downstairs is not Busy with traffic. Actually I can not say a bad thing for this hostel at all. Very nice.

Fair for the price but has issues
I wanted to enjoy this hotel, as the staff were friendly despite a language barrier. The room itself was small but ok, and the bathroom clean but there were two issues. The minor one was the wifi didn't reach my room (room 8) so I could only get internet near reception. Only a problem if like me you are using the web to plan the next few days. The larger problem was the room smelt of smoke to the extent that after two days so did most of my clothes. Location was fine but if in Madrid again I'll look elsewhere.

Good location, just ok stay
Wifi doesnt work well in the room. Towel is not in good condition. But cleans room everyday. Great location, its near to the train station and all, but neighbor isn't that good.
