The Garden Backpacker was one of the highlights of my trip to Sevilla. Rooms are spacious and bright, beds are comfortable, staff is friendly (they welcome with you free Sangria between 7pm to 8pm), and best of all...enough power outlets throughout the place. I didn't have to fight another person to charge my device. The laid back and chilled atmosphere was a plus. I was able to relax, party, drink, and socialize. It didn't have the frat house vibe instead it felt like a home away from home.

Hostel was difficult to find as it's hidden in one of the small alleys. The staff are really helpful and nice, which made the stay enjoyable. Wifi is pretty bad though, even in the common areas.

It is really nice hostel with nice common and really good garden with a nice bar. The staff are also good. They had a amazing dinner for the Christmas eve. But they don't have many activities in the evening. We had a really good free walking tour, our guide Medi was awesome with lots of energy. I would totally recommend his walking tour.

Really lovely experience. The staff was really accommodating and they treat you well. That positive energy I think rubs off on all the guests as well. Was not expecting much from the food as it was so affordable, but it was phenomenal. Wish I could've stayed longer.

Great hostel in the beautiful city of Sevilla. Everything within walking distance of the hostel (15-20 minutes). Very kind and helpful staff. The free sangria every night was really good and was the perfect situation to meet new people. The walking tour by Filippo was really informative and funny.

Very good hostel in the center of Sevilla. It's only about 10-15 minutes by foot to the cathedral. I personally like best the free Sangria at night.

Great place to meet people! Free Sangria every night from 7 to 8. Really friendly staff! Confortable beds and clean rooms. Delicious breakfast and dinner (not indluded). Not the cheapest hostel but definitely the money worth! Would recommend it!!!

This place was fantastic, although the main area to hang out and meet travellers is outside and this is very cold at this time of year so be sure you have warm clothes! The facilities are good and the beds and showers were both great! Good location and easy to find from both the train and bus stations. The atmosphere was on and off but if you are willing to put yourself out there you are sure to meet great people!

For a first time visitor to Seville, I wouldn't stay here. The location is incredibly difficult to find and not very close to anything of interest! You have to pay for towels, there aren't enough bathrooms, the lockers are SO loud they wake you up.whenever someone uses it, and the beds are not very comfortable. I stayed here because they had awesome reviews, but i did not have the same experience.

Great hostel, with beautiful and comfortable common areas. I loved the hammocks on the rooftop terrace; perfect for a mid-day siesta in the sun. The staff was extremely knowledgable about the area! They were able to give great suggestions while keeping my budget in mind. A delicious home cooked vegetarian meal is prepared every night for only €5 and they offer free sangria!!! Highly recommendable!
