great hostel. nice rooftop and nice comfy beds and clean rooms. bathrooms en suite. thanks
I liked Samay Hostel. The girls and one guy working the front were very cool, and fun. I only had one night and it was easy to meet people and make friends. I don't think there is anything I would complain about, other than Wifi only being available in the kitchen and living room and not in the rooms. The location isn't ideal but the ten-fifteen minute walk to the cathedral and other sights is through a very pretty area of Sevilla, the old Jewish neighborhood of Santa Cruz. Not a bad place inall
As seen in pictures! Great rooms! loved them!
The hostel has almosto everything you're looking for, a ood breakfast, a common area (even though it could be bigger), a terrace, cool dormitories with air conditioning. The staff is always available. The only issue is that there were no plugs in the room I was in so, in order to charge my electronic devices, I always had to go to the common area, often full.
Staff were extremely helpful upon check-in taking time to tell me about where best to visit in the city and providing leaflets, maps, bus info, etc. There were also facilities to leave luggage. Rooms were secure only accessed by key cards. Rooms and showers were acceptably clean. Location was good and close to many attractions. Good value for money.
I recomend it,except the kitchen was a bit untidy
Defnatly a great Hostel. Do you know those kind of hostels that makes you feel at home? If you do, means you already been at Samay, otherwise you dont, and you must go there to know ;)

Very affordable. Staff friendly and helpful. AC not constant. List of services includes airport transfers but they don't actually offer it. Ensuite wasn't very clean and lockers were broken - you could leave valuables at the front desk instead. Not really a social/party hostel. Just an average stay, would recommend for those on a budget.
It was okay. Mostly clean and decently safe. No lockers in the rooms as advertised (upon arrival, I was told they "didn't work"), though, so it was lucky that my roommates were decent. Sheets a little marked, bathroom kind of scummy; reception clearly a bit older and not very nice looking. No atmosphere when I arrived. For the money, I would have expected a bit of a better location (kind of far from the center). Staff was friendly and very helpful, so that was good.
one of the best hostel. very good vibe, the staff is really helpful. they have a really nice terrace to hang out in late afternoon/night. in the center, just 3 mins walking from cathedral. airco in the room perfect!. would stay again
The hostel is pretty good for what you pay, it's quite cheap there aren't any lockers but if you have padlocks on your bag you will be fine. Our room didn't have AC the first night and there was a heat wave but we switched rooms so we were much more comfortable our second night. There isn't wifi in the second floor rooms and there isn't a very big lounge area but the kitchen is quite large.
Great Hosel, great staff, great stay! Loved it!!!!

Great staff and good location
Our experience was very enjoyable, as our room and bathroom were spacious and clean. However the AC didn't work very well in the room and the room didn't have a signal from the wireless internet. Those things aside, it was a well-located, affordable night's stay and we were satisfied with what we got for our money.
I had a very pleasant stay there. Staff were appropriately friendly. Atmosphere welcoming. I appreciated having a place to eat. My room was nice and clean and bright.
