One of my best hostel experiences yet. We met amazing people and everything about the hostel was fantastic!
very lovely place in seville...loved it from the first moment! free tour with medi was just an amazing experience!!
Great location, free sangria every night was great, garden was lovely, hostel dinners were yummy and well priced. We stayed in a twin room which was nice, a tad bit small though. The bathrooms were a bit run down but manageable once they were cleaned.
travelling alone and the atmospehere experienced at the gardenbackpacker was second to none. met the best group of people and we all partied, went sightseeing and chilled on the rooftop terrace together. loved it
Was a cool little hostel. A lot of space to chill out inside and out. There was a really good kitchen. At night they would serve free sangria from 8-9pm. It brings all the people together and is the start of a big night. The only bad thing was the smell of the room. We stayed in the main dorm and it stunk. There was no air ventilation.
Free sangria and yummy dinners for cheap!
It was my first abroad trip(by my own)and I had a really good time there!the stuff was very helpful,the building was situated very near the center,I took the free walking tour with ''Medi'' who was fantastic tour-guide,I enjoyed the roof with all these nice friendships.I also think that I have to say that the guys that were in the reception were so well informed,full of positive energy and really friendly!You have to stay there if you will go to seville!

This place is a little gem! It's close to everything and easy to get to from the train station. The garden and roof terrace are lovely, perfect places to rest during siesta. The 5€ dinner option is he best option I've come across. You can't beat at home cooked meal for that cheap. It's also a great way to meet other travelers. They also make amazing mojitos. The staff was really helpful and concerned about our stay. The only annoying thing is that you have to ring a buzzer to get in.
Very welcoming and great community. Dinner and access to the bar was wonderful and made it easy to meet people. Staff was incredibly kind and helpful. The location was not as central as I would have liked but everything is still within walking distance. Very close to a street with bars called Alfalfa which is helpful.
Staff were incredibly friendly and helpful, we arrived super early in the morning and weren't able to check in until later, but they let us nap in the common room and use the bathrooms freely. Also, the free all you can drink sangria hour was amazing.
Nice hostel With friendly/helpfull staff. Very clean.
This was a WONDERFUL hostel experience. Very clean and they are so helpful! Free sangria, great food, beautiful facilities.
We had a great stay at this hostel and a very warm welcome from Frederico on arrival. Highly recommend this hostel- the garden is lovely too :)
Our first ever stay at a hostel and it very much exceeded our expectations. Very fun atmosphere, clean rooms, good food, GREAT location and awesome staff. It was just what we wanted
Bathrooms were not very clean and had a funky smell. Mattresses are a bit thin and I would not call that glob of cotton balls a pillow. The blanket which was also just a mass of cotton was rather unappealing. Overall, the hostel seemed a little bit run down. Things were all over the place. Staff was very nice and friendly. They proactively provided a lot of information at check-in with maps. No breakfast though. Computers with 4 pages of printing included!
Nice location friendly atmosphere. Shadia is an excellent cook, must try her food. Walking tour with Medi is amazing. Highly recommend.
The place is just great , especially for its staff very friendly, cool and helpful. Even though it is not much advertised, the free tour is really good, led by a passionate guy! Ask for Juan !
OKay so I know I have checked off 'excellent' for everything on the review ...but seriously, do yourself a favour and stay at this hostel! This has been my absolute favourate place I have stayed at over the last five weeks I have been traveling. If you want somewhere that is chill and social this is the place for you. The staff are lovely and helpful. They serve sangria from 8-9 every night for free which brings everyone together. Oh and hey... hammocks on the roof top terrace. Enjoy!
The security was fine; the front door only opened via the front desk and the rooms had locks and lockers. The location was a bit far from the main attractions, but only a 15 minute walk (if you didn't get lost...which was due to the city, not the hostel). The staff was great as was the atmosphere with sangria (free) and dinner (cheap) every night. The bathrooms weren't the cleanest I've seen. Value for my money was definitely acceptable and the facilities were decent. I would recommend it.
