This is a great hostel. Really friendly staff, great facilities, hammock in the backyard. Really good tours. Great Italian bartender who makes a wicked mojito!
We had a fantastic time, the staff was incredible!
Lovely hostel with a nice backyard and living room. Short walk to bars and shopping area, about 20 mins walk to river. Good supermarket very close by. Walking tours were good. Kitchen facilities were good, and free sangria and 3.50 mojitos were delicious. 8 people in a dorm with one bathroom could get busy at times. Air-conditioning was nice.
Everything in this hostel is very good; staff are *excellent*. During my stay I met Claudia, Daniele, Filippo, Federico and Francisco, who are professional in their dealing with clients but warm and helpful over and above the call of duty. In addition to this, the walking tours and pub crawls led by Juan Manuel, Manu, Medi and Filippo provided an amazing insight into the labyrinthic alleys of Seville's history as well as its vibrant nightlife. Very recommended.

Great hostel, can't fault it. Perfectly laid out. Nice outdoor area and inside common area as well as a rooftop. Breakfast basic but good. Staff nice and helpful. Lockers and air con in rooms. Good wifi throughout the hostel. Always seems to be people hanging around in the common areas and has a good vibe. Organised walking tours, bar crawls, tapas tours, etc. Bar crawl didn't really get off the ground when I was there but it was midweek. Definitely recommend.
This hostel was great -- especially the air conditioning in July! It was a great location to everything we wanted to see in Seville, easy walking distance. The staff was extremely helpful with directions and sightseeing suggestions. We didn't take advantage of any of the guided tours or bar crawl but lots were available.
My boyfriend and I had a wonderful stay at Garden Backpacker Hostel. In fact this may have been our favourite place from all hostals we stayed in during our 2 week trip. The Garden Backpacker had everything we were looking for; beautiful, clean, relaxing atmosphere but with lots of opportunities to socialize (free sangria, pub crawls, cheap drinks at their bar, great staff etc.) The facilities were great (could borrow anything you forgot to bring, shampoo, curling iron, towels etc).
a great stay in this hostel. Probably the best I've ever stayed. I've met a great staff; I've spent enough time talking with them to say that they are really friendly and helpful persons. It's not far from the most important places of interest.
Not the greatest hostel I've ever stayed in. It was pretty good though. More or less clean. Pretty good facilities. The real selling feature was the incredibly friendly staff. They welcomed you and bid you farewell like friends. Which is a nice change from chain hostels. They offered great suggestions which was also very nice. The atmosphere created with the free sangria each evening is also pleasing.
The staff were very friendly. The back yard was great. The walking tours were great. Free sangria was fun. Walking tours were outstanding. I will return. I recommend.
Had a wonderful stay here! Make your own nutella crepes for breakfast :) (everything else was great too)
I got there alone on saturday night... And the staff and everyone was soo awesome, making sure everyone was having fun. The rooms and facilities are confortable and clean, the breakfast is good. Everything is close, I ended up walking there from the train station since the road was closed for the bus because of the Gay Pride parade. Special thanks to Mehdi, Manu, Vale and the rest of the Italians! You are awesome!
Staff was very friendly. Hostel had free sangria everyday, which made everyone friendly and mingle. Laundry was overpriced though.
This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. Every night they organize beautiful events from tapas tasting to fantastic city walking tours that will blow your mind. Free sangria from 8-9 every night. Simply the best.
Second time we return to this place and it was still amazing. Will keep on returning.
This was by far one of the best hostels we stayed at. It had everything that we needed, was really well run and had no problems. There was free sangria in the evening (which was great!), all sorts of organised activities and a great atmosphere. We really enjoyed our stay here. We especially enjoyed the terrace and cold outdoor shower on the roof :) Perhaps a few more bathroom facilities is the only very teeny suggestion we might have.
Staff is very friendly and I really enjoyed been in the garden at the back of the hostel.
This is a wonderful hostel that my friend and I didn't want to leave even after four nights. The staff was friendly and helpful, it was a convenient walking distance from pretty much everything and the hostel offers so many extra opportunities to get to know other travelers including the pub crawl, free sangria, paella nights, and day trips, that you are never bored. We would stay here again without a doubt.

The Garden Backpacker has one of the best vibes I've seen at a hostel! Free sangria for an hour every night, and a cute board where they write ''Welcome'' and ''Goodbye'' to everyone arriving or leaving the hostel by name, very cute :) It is located in a nice area, but you do have to walk a bit (10-15 minutes) to get to the main highlights Cathedral Alcazar etc. The rooms have AC which is also a plus. Overall we enjoyed it and would definitely stay there again if we returned to Seville!
