Amazing. Great vibe. Really welcoming and friendly staff. Awesome roof top with excellent cocktails, 1 euro beers, and the best hostel dinners every night for only 6 euro. The best hostel I have stayed at. Thanks!

La Banda is awesome. I have visited a few times now and wouldn't stay anywhere else when visiting Seville. The hostel is clean, comfortable and secure which provides the perfect place to socialise, meet people and explore the beautiful city. The rooftop dinners are always tasty (highly recommended) and the bar on the roof in the evenings serves cold drinks at reasonable prices. If you want to make a bunch of new friends and have a great time while doing it then La Banda is for you.

Great big comfortable bunk beds, good wifi, great location, great kitchen, and aircon - essential. Rooftop dinners were delicious and well worth the money! As were the cocktails. Had a lovely view of the cathedral as well. Couldn't have asked for a better hostel!!!

This was the first hostel I have stayed at so far that I didn't want to leave due to the staff being champions. Starting off with Sam checking you in whilst playing tunes off vinyl, Ricki and Tom cooking you a feast and then Matt up at the bar tossing the coin well past happy hour! In all seriousness the hostel has an amazing vibe and I loved the fact they cook a great dinner for everyone who wants to join, easy to make friends. Also great view from the roof! I want to go back!!

This place was a fun hostel. The rooftop bar gives it sort of a party vibe. Though they provide everything that you need to stay comfortably. They even have cheap dinners (6 euros) and provide free walking tours with ecstatic guides (definitely worth it). The hosts are from the UK and I'm not sure if that has swayed many guest but everyone was almost exclusively an English speaker when I stayed. I didn't really speak any Spanish while there (good or bad depending on your preference).

Stay at this hostel. The rooftop diners are tasty and a great way to meet other travellers. Really nice atmosphere. My only complaint is the lack of female only dorms.

This is definitely the best hostel I stayed at in Spain! It is amazing what you guys have done in just one year! The atmosphere is so laid-back and makes it a great place to meet other travellers. The rooftop terrace is the perfect place to enjoy the the amazing views of the cathedral and delicious dinners prepared in the hostel . The staff were really friendly and helpful and there were tons of activities available. The free walking tour with Medi and the nights at the Bilindo were excellent!

This is one of the cosiest places I ever stayed! From the moment I walked in I felt that I could live there. The location is excellent, close to the cathedral, the city centre and the main bus station.The hostel is very clean, the rooms aren't very large but they're very quiet and you can have a good night of sleep. Plus, the staff is incredibly helpful, friendly and they care about their guests. They want to get to know you and help having a great travel experience. I absolutely reccomend it!

One of the best hostels I've stayed in during my whole four month tour of Europe. Staff is friendly and helpful as soon as you walk in the door. Good security - must be buzzed in each time you arrive and there is always someone at reception. AIR CONDITIONING is fantastic in the common area and rooms. OK Wifi except on the roof which doesn't matter cuz you're socialising. Fantastic dinners every night for 6 euro (totally worth it) and basic bread and cereal breakfast. Good bathrooms and kitchen

I really loved this hostel, I stayed here for 6 nights and it was awesome! Loved the family dinners at the rooftop, the food was awesome! It is a good place to meet a lot of awesome people. The location is also great. I did the free walking tour in the morning that was a lot of fun! Would really recommend it, but for the next time it would be nice if there is a break in between the 3 hrs. Also did the free walking tour in the afternoon with phillipo, that was also nice. Pub crawl was ok.

Staying at La Banda is like making love to a beautiful lady while riding a unicorn through a black hole. Except, instead of getting ripped to pieces and potentially being blasted into a parallel universe, you enjoy a very comfortable stay and delightful rooftop dinners. La Banda has been the best hostel I have stayed in during my 2+ months in Europe. Samuel, Ollie, Tom and Richie are all legends and made my stay unforgettable. So good that I'm back again a week later! Four thumbs up.
