Everything was fine! Atmosphere was only ok but I'm not there at a high season I suppose! Staff were really nice except for one girl who worked reception when I arrived who just seemed like she did not want to be there at all. All in all a fine hostel though. I'm sure there are better hostels for solo backpackers but Seville is quite expensive for hostels, for a cheap hostel this is fine. Beds were comfortable, Could have been more plugs around the place though.


the hostel is very well located, close to everything. but the big problem was the bathroom of the room for 8 people, smelled really bad and it was very nasty. in the other hand, there was no place to plug cellphones,etc. the staff was very helpful and nice.


Samay is an amazing hostel, perfect location, staff are awesome, lively atmosphere, free sangria and shots on the terrace every night. I met the best people there - friends for life! MUCHAS GRACIAS! Miss you Samay :)


The hostel is in a good location for exploring Seville and the security boxes are handy for valuables. The shower didn't seem as if it had been cleaned recently and the WiFi was poor anywhere else other than downstairs.


Just perfect. Do not forget to go to the Carboneria near the hostel! 10/10


Towels were not included. Just one euro though. They change the sheets daily. It was overall a very nice hostel. Great location, clean rooms, spacious enough. Safes were good but only big enough for valuables not backpacks. Not enough outlets in the room. There was literally one and it was in the bathroom. This was a serious problem.


This was a cool hostel. Staff were great. I really liked how there was something on every night for the guests in the form of free beer or sangria to encourage people to hangout on the terrace.


Wifi was very poor anywhere else other than downstairs. Speed of the internet at the stationary computers was equally poor. Also volunteers working there weren't any help (didn't answer any of my simple everyday questions). It's well located though. They also try to integrate their guests by organising parties at the rooftop terrace.


I ve been in a twin room for four days with a friend of mine and that was really great !! good atmosphere, clean and excelent location. Next time I visit Sevillle I ll stay in Samay hostel for sure. 100% recomendable!!


Samay was alot of fun to stay at because of all friendly people and helpful staff! The free drinks on the terrace is another plus!


Amazing hostel right behind the main city centre and walking distance to all main attractions.


The stuffs are great and kind and also location is good but its lacking of battery charge consents. And its very weak wifi... common rooms is very small for this size.


Overall its a great hostel with good atmosphere and in a nice building.. they should however take more care of the details like there was no wifi in the rooms and hardly any power outlets


The bathrooms were a bit gross and I did not want to use them. Also the lack of outlets in the room was disappointing. The staff was amazing and very helpful. The terrace was beautiful and my favorite part of the stay at this hostel.

Samay hostel is place where you can experience meaning of the hostels and for me it is getting people together, shearing and have fun.The place is clean, beds are comfortable a good price for the breakfast, friendly staff, location is is not far from the city centre.If are you there already enjoyed the place and Seville


There's no Wifi on the rooms (some rooms?) which makes the common room and kitchen a place for people staring on their smartphone/laptop -> atmosphere killer. Lights at the beds would be a plus, too, so you don't have to sit in the tiny common room while reading (there's always someone asleep in the dorm rooms). Probably better, when the weather is good enough to sit on the rooftop terrace, but else not a very good atmosphere.

If you ever get the chance to see the beautiful Seville, I really recommend to stay at Samay! The hostel is clean and very well located, just 10 minutes from the amazing Plaza de España. , the Cathedral an the city centre. The staff is very helpful and friendly, whatever you need they are there for you. The events on the terrace are really cool and you can easily meet new people. 100% recommendable!

We got a private four person bedroom and the bed were comfortable! The bathrooms were really clean. We were only there for the night but it was nice and the late checkout time is amazing.


The staff is very nice but there are too little power points in the rooms. And it would be nice, if the wi-fi would work also in the rooms.


The crew here is really helpful in matters of everything. Even the people coming to stay are very friendly and you can be friends with them instantly. I specially Loved the Location, Its close to everything possible and everything you need to see in Seville. Overall I loved my stay here, I stayed a few more days, since I got sick and the crew helped me out a lot. - Arwin
