5 of us drove into Sevilla for the night and originally booked rooms at the sister hostel, Oasis, but was happy to end up here. Wonderful and friendly staff made recommendations on where to eat, what bars to check out, which Flamenco show to attend, where to go to Easter mass - we were not disappointed! Originally thought we booked rooms with two separate beds, so for those sharing a room, one had to sleep on the sofa bed, but it was only for one night and we didn't have an issue. Great stay!
Oasis hostel was a super nice hostel, except some of the staff really let you down when they're not welcoming or helpful and make it seem like you're a burden. The rooftop terrace and bar was a cool touch though the kitchen really need some more cooking pots as there was one pot to use between everyone and I had to continually wait or have other people wait for me to finish using it. Also the website directions from airport are outdated and sent me to the wrong place - needs updating.
One bathroom was not enough for 14 people, it would have been nice if the toilet and shower were not connected because if someone was in the bathroom it was very annoying. The front desk people were nice, Andres was very helpful. I felt secure and the hostel was in a good location.
Probably better facilities than half the 4 star hotels is Seville and undoubtedly a better atmosphere! Pool, bar, wifi on every floor, breakfast, brunch, key cards for rooms, living room, activities, it's a backpackers paradise! Excellent service - Andres at reception was exceptionally kind in arranging everything we needed! Thank you!
Big but calm enough and with real hostel atmosphere. Clena, great breakfast and very helpful staff. Recommended.
Totally fine hostel. Only complaint is that the rooms don't have personal lights on the beds, so guests who come in late end up flashing their flashlights around and waking people up in the dorms. Javier and Andres at the desk were fabulous.
Excellent place to start walking the Camino Via de le Plata.

Not much information given out from staff at reception, it was hard to get much out of them when we asked questions, especially as it was Semana santa in Seville and there was a lot going on. We found a lot more information out online rather than from the staff, areas to go out etc. Lots going on at the hostel though- great rooftop terrace with the pool, clean and decent rooms.
Really nice clean hostel, roof top pool was good in the heat. Could get more for the paid breakfast. Distance between pubs on the pub crawl was to much
Stayed here during Semana Santa and had a good time. It was very hot in a 10 person room obviously but there was no AC or a way to open the windows for fresh air so room was stale and musty. Only complaint. Really cool vibe lived the rooftop would come back again!
Big hostel, with friendly staff. The roof terrance and bar are the selling points.
The front desk person was left alone and was doing the best he could. Was very friendly, but it was way too much for him to handle alone. We stood in line for 45 minutes, he should have had someone helping him. Also the man who works at night is very helpful and friendly.
Great place! Staff was very helpful -- especially Andres!!!
Awesome hostel! Great location in Sevilla and the rooftop was so cool. Andreas was really helpful getting a taxi!!
We chose the biggest and cheapest room with 14 beds and it was perfect! The location is super central and whole atmoshere in the hostel is amazing! The rooftop is the best part of it. There, you will be able to meet all the cool people staying at the hostel. The bad thing is that they close it at 00:00h.
The hostel was truly trying to foster a party environment, with lots of people hanging around the rooftop terrace and bar. I felt that security at the front desk was not that tight, seeing that many people who were not staying at the hostel were easily walking in past the front desk without a word. The wifi was also very unreliable. The room was very clean and the facilities were clean, too.
Everything was great! Andres was extremely friendly and helpful!
Loved the pool and rooftop terrace. Staff were pretty cool, we didn't need much help from them because we were visiting with friends that had already been to Sevilla, but they seemed like they could have helped out had we needed it. There was a separate info desk from reception. Overall really good stay! The only con was that the windows in our room didn't open and it really could have used a good airing-out with 14 people's smelly shoes in there all stuffed up.
This was a really fun hostel! The roof was great, staff was friendly, location was perfect, and the walking tours are nice. It was frustrating to have to pay for breakfast. Even just coffee/bread was €2. I also wish the wifi was more reliable throughout the hostel. But overall it was good!
Very nice and cosy place. However one of the staff was not that nice. Others were quiet friendly and helpful. The tour guy Guilhermo was amazing.
