Good hostel. The 4 bed dorm was a bit small with everyone's bags, but standard for a hostel so no real complaint. Sangria hour is great, it makes meeting other easy. Definitely recommend the walking tour with Medi.


It was very easy to meet people here. Every staff member was very nice and helpful. The free sangria at nights was amazing. The breakfast and dinners were well worth it. We took the walking tour and it was very informative and our guide was really funny. If I were to come back to Sevilla I would absolutely stay here again.


I thought this place was perfect for me! It wasn't a party hostel.. But still very easy to meet people! I stayed here on 2 separate occasions and both times where great! Staff where extremely friendly and helpful! The 5 euro dinners are amazing...biome off the best falafels I've ever had!


very nice place and staff.very helpful.


so great, wouldn't stay anywhere else now.


I loved staying at The Garden Backpacker! The staff there is so sweet, accommodating, and friendly. They gave us great recommendations on places to eat and the Flamenco show we went to. I loved the breakfast, dinner, and free sangria. This is definitely a great place to meet other travellers. The hostel is easy to get to but not in a main area of Sevile, but it's still conveniently located.


The receptionist during the day is really amazing and friendly. Remembers everyone's names. Pros: - clean - rooftop (not a good view but nice to chill) - garden is beautiful - common space is comfortable - meals are delicious and worth the cost Cons - dorm room was cramped - needed receptionist to buzz the front door at all hours


I met great people here and got great help from the staff on things to do. Sangria night is a must and the breakfasts are amazing. The bar is cheap and the place is clean. Dorm rooms are pretty small, but typical for city hostels. I would stay again.


Great stay at the Garden backpackers. Super hostel and super staff. I enjoyed the free sangria!


Great hostel with amazing staff! The common area is perfect with lots of chances to meet people! Loved the free sangria and dinners! Would definitely recommend!!


Very easy to make new friends over the fantastic and cheap home cooked dinner and free sangria hour. Would definitely return when I'm next in Seville.


Difficult to find. In a decent location. Staff is great! They try to get guests involved in activities like pub crawls, homemade dinners, free sangria, etc. This hostel is setup in a way to easily meet people. I made great friends. This is a place for solo travelers.


Decent location. The lockers were really small and I couldn't fit my bag, which wasn't even a full backpackers backpack size. Most people couldn't lock their belongings in the lockers. I was able to lock up the valuable items, but most places allow you to lock up your whole bag.


We had a really nice stay in Sevilla. Nice, clean hostel, friendly atmosphere, free sangria and good location

The Wi-Fi didn't work in my room nor the garden, but the hostel had that fixed by the end of my stay. Great walking tours by Phillipo.


This is probably the best hostel I've stayed at in my time traveling!! The facilities were nice and very clean; the staff was friendly and super helpful; the organised tour with Felipe was an amazing snapshot of the city; there was free sangria every night, really cheap cocktails past 9pm, and delicious home made food for 5 euros. Amazingly sociable atmosphere. If you're traveling by yourself, I'd definitely recommend this place as you'll make tons of new friends :)


The best thing about this hostel was that it was easy to meet other travelers! (Free sangria nights helps ;) And it was easy to find from the Santa Justa Station. Otherwise, it could use some maintenance and cleaning. The kitchen area had drawers falling of hinges and the fridge was a bit stinky. The bathrooms needed mildew removed etc. But if that stuff doesn't matter, you'll meet great people and have fun in Sevilla!


Very very good hostel. Would stay again. Must do is the walking tour with Medi, he is by far one of the best guides I've ever had and a great laugh. Dinners are delicious and well worth signing up for!


This was a really great place with a lot of cool people.


Well located, close to everything. The hostel is nice and has a nice garden outside perfect to just chill. no wifi in the upstairs bedroom whic was a bit of a bummer. Aside from that it did the job. The city is gorgeous and the staff is really helpful!
