It's not a hostel for backpackers. You could not sleep/eat/rest with eyes shut in the lobby (the only common area), because it gives a “bad image”. We’ve just slept 2-3 hours, we’re trying to rest a little bit, and closed our eyes. In a rude tone, the staff advised that if we want to sleep we need to get out…(it was 8 am, check-in 1pm). The luggage room (which looks like a kitchen that could not be used) gets full quickly, but it seems that with a little more effort more space could be arranged.
Can not really rate Hostal Catedral, since we were moved to Pension Perez Montilla due to techincal problems. We were informed before and got upgraded at Perez Montilla to an ensuite room, which was very nice. At Perez Montilla everything is fine, great value for the money you pay. The stuff is not exceptionally friendly and not fluent in English but we found out that this is the way with almost all Spanish people in Andalucia.

The lady at the check-in was absolutely lovely, so friendly and kind
Staff is extremely rude. Bathroom on the 2nd floor was horrible.
Beautiful hostel with the nicest staff I have encountered thus far in Spain! The towels and linens were included, the luggage room could be used free of charge. It felt very much like a home. The only thing is that we had to give our keys to a staff member if we left the hostel, which seemed unsafe to me. Good location, clean, it was very hot but that is because it is in Sevilla haha. Highly recommend staying here!

The "Hostel" is in reality no hostel. It has neither a atmosphere nor staff, who speaks english. So either you are good in body language or in spanish, otherwise it's going to be hard to communicate. Furthermore you can't print anything, because they are not authorized to do anything. The place in general is in an average location as well as the cleanness is nothing special. To sum up, we would definitely never go to this hostel again, if we stay one more time in Seville.
The rooms are really nice, and we stayed at a double bed one with private bathroom. You can walk to all of the main city attractions (even Alhambra, but you need to walk up hills a bit). The bed is really comfortable adn everything was tidy.
Beware of rooms with so-called-window to the inside (to the corridor, not outside). It's dark inside and very hard to get fresh air. And if you take of the curtain to let any air people passing by the corridor can see everything... And it's very acoustic there. You can hear evyrything from around in strange way.. And wifi was working very poor.
