The hostel was awesome. I loved the staff.. Very warm welcoming helpful people. :) I WISH TO RETURN.
Wonderful hostel! The staff was incredibly friendly and very helpful. The walking tour with Juan was excellent as well, be suer to wear comfortable shoes during the tour! Its within walking distance to tons of the historic sites in Seville, so you can do a lot here!
Great hostel. Be sure to check out the free walking tours.
Close to main sites and a great place to come back and chill. Common areas are spacious and welcoming, staff are friendly and very helpful.

One of the best hostels I've ever stayed. The staff were super nice. They offered tickets for flamenco shows with 50% off. It's also easy to meet people here if you are traveling alone. I loved Sevilla and this hostel.
all experience here are so nice. so highly recommandable. one thing you should take care is don´t maze in Seville old district without map. this place is a little bit far from cathedral.
Great staff - gave tips on what to do in Seville. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Nice terrace and garden.
One of the best hostels I stayed in Spain!! Great atmosphere, amazing staff!
One of the best hostels! I really had a great time here. It was very easy to meet people here, perfect for people travelling alone because the atmosphere is amazing. They have a lovely garden where they have a free sangria hour every night, and sometimes paella nights as well. The staff is very friendly and always there to help out or give recommendations about places to eat etc. I can really recommend this place!
Great Hostel.. Friendly staff.. You can cook anything you like in the hostel..great atmosphere.. will definately come back..
The staff were very helpful in advice about Seville and friendly :) The free Sangria nights were amazing as were the activities offered by the hostel. My group and I were able to see a breathtaking Flamenco show for 15 euros. We were also taken on a free walking tour (you tip the guides) with Juan who is a local from Seville who gave us so many interesting facts and stories. If you go on a walking tour definitely try to get one from Juan; he is hilarious. I really enjoyed my stay!
This place has a nice vibe if you're looking to meet other people with well laid out common areas and garden backyard that has a staffed bar as well as free sangria from 1930-2030h. Easy acess to most of the sites and a decent tip-only-based walking tour that gives you the lay of the land fairly quickly. All in all a good stay.
It was a good hostel, especially for solo travelers. The atmosphere was good for meeting people that you could spend the rest of your stay with. I also took the morning walking tour with Medi, who was a little crazy but led a fun tour.
Great hostel, helpful staff, good garden/bar area and very well equipped large kitchen. The free nightly sangria and bi-weekly paella were fantastic. Special mention to Medi and Filippo who run excellent free walking tours of the city and collect from the hostel! Only drawback was the very slow wifi.
A great place to stay, helpful staff, and a good location. Bit difficult to find down the crazy narrow streets, but otherwise it was a cool experience, thanks!
What a great place - fantastic atmosphere there with loads of activities organised by the hostel, including tours of the city, pub crawls and free sangria every night. Lounge and bar area downstairs are great for chatting to other guests. Central location to explore the amazing city of Seville, and the staff were just ridiculously friendly and helpful.
