This place was my favorite hostel yet. AC in the rooms is essential in the summer heat. Family dinners and cheap bar prices also a huge bonus. Staff took the time to get to know my name, and the free walking tour by Medi was absolutely the best walking tour I've been on ever and I go on them in every place I travel to. Nice kitchen and good breakfast as well- they serve cereal as apprised to the standard toast and jam in most hostels. Thanks La Banda! Wish I could have stayed longer!

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. Like everyone else has said the guys who run it do an amazing job, it has a great atmosphere and is really awesome value for money. Every night you can join in the home cooked dinner on the rooftop which is a great way to meet people who are ataying. The bar serves everything from espresso martinis to Mojitos so you can have drunks after dinner with everyone The only potential problem is the lack of bathrooms but I never had a problem Highly rate!!

The best hostel we have ever stayed in with an amazing atmosphere. Ollie, Richie, Sam and Tom could not have been more welcoming; always happy to help or even just chat for hours. The family rooftop dinner is awesome and we met so many incredible people including the hosts themselves. Though the city is amazing - I would go back to Seville just for La Banda.

Possibly the best hostel i've ever stayed at. It's run by four young British dudes (two of 'em are brothers) who decided to team up and open a hostel in a spectacular Spanish city. Clean, safe, great value, no hassle - all the standard things you want are here. What really made my stay at La Banda was the atmosphere: e.g. how the guys cooked and served a gourmet meal to their guests on the rooftop patio, on which you can linger for drinks afterwards. Simply fantastic, would recommend to all!

Enjoyed my stay - staff was super friendly, everyone staying there was friendly and got along well with each other to create a really nice atmosphere. I was in room 2, which was comfortable enough- a bit small, but totally liveable. Only minus would be the bathroom situation- two toilets and two showers shared for men and women for 1st and 2nd floor and no changing area, though didn't end up being a problem. Group dinners, free breakfast, free walking tour (with Santiago and Felipo) were great!

The location is excellent, just in the middle of everything you must see in the Magic Seville. The hostel was very clean, private toilette in the shared bedroom plus two more on the third floor. The atmosphere was really good and the staff very friendly. We highly recommend this hostel to have a pleasant stay in Seville

This is a perfect hostel - the guys who run it are awesome, friendly and give great advice about what to do, see - and especially where to eat. The music they play is phenomenal - and overall there is a fantastic atmosphere to chill and meet people. Everything else is totally on point too - location is perfect - the view from the terrace is breathtaking - and everything else is just as good! Highly recommended!

Listen up other hostel owners - THIS is how you run a hostel. If all hostels were like this I'd never stay in a hotel again, fun, great staff, a rooftop terrace with a bar and food every night, tours organized, great location, I cannot fault it at all.

Absolutely fantastic hostel. Within walking distance of everythjng, they serve beer in the lounge area and the rooftop bar which has an excellent view, and family dinner is a great way to socialise. Only downside is that it's a hike from Santa Justa train station (40 min walk) or any of the smaller bus and train stops, but the bus is cheap (€1.40) and taxis are too, and the walk is flat. Would definitely stay here again next time!

Have nothing bad to say about this hostel! Best hostel so far! Rooftop dinner was cheap and amazing, also their beers are only one euro at the rooftop bar! Hostels always jack up the prices like crazy so nice to see some affordable drinks. Amazing location a stones throw from the cathedral and alcazar. Easy to find from the bus station. And really great for solo travellers because easy to meet people at the dinners! 10/10

This was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed it! The owners are friendly, outgoing, and knowledgable. They have a BA bar and a sweet rooftop patio for family dinners. Laid back, chill, fun atmosphere with clean and bright rooms.

absolutely obsessed with la banda! i really have no complaints - from the rooftop bar, to the cheap delicious family style dinner, to the super comfy beds, i loved every minute of my stay! they do have AC in the rooms (you have to request they turn it on, which took me a couple days to find out...), which is super necessary in sevilla summer. all the staff are super friendly and helpful. 100% recommend!

La Banda is one of the best hostels I ever stayed in! Not because of things like the rooms, the good location...etc. But because the guys who run the hostel create a perfect atmosphere! They know what it's about, they bring travellers together. Everyday there's dinner on the roofterrace, excellent food and good company. After that the people go out together. Chilled music, recommendations where to go, nice details in the house, friendly helpful staff - even know the names of the guests!!
