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!
The garden offers great services and very cool atmosphere. Great value and i would come back any time!!!
Great hostel, we really enjoy it, the staff is awesome and give us really useful information.
Awesome hostel, one of the best iv been to. Awesome city, make sure to go tapas hoping. Can recomend Come y Calle. Big and awesome tapas, try the solomillo de carbonara. You should try the free Walking Tours, Its a pay what you think it was worth kind of deal. They are 4 guys with PHD:s in history and religion and stuff. We ended up with Mede and Filipo they were awesome. They are awesome if u need recommendations about bars and stuff.
Staff were awesome- went out of their way to help with anything we asked. Hostel also ran day trips out to other places around Saville - well worth checking some of these our. Free sangria was key- as was the paella night. Definitely would stay here again.
absolutely amazing. great staff, had lots to do and planned. gave you the opportunity to explore the city and day trips in groups or provided you with information to go off on your own. clean, fun, and free sangaria!!! could not of stayed in a better spot!
We came for a surprise birthday week-end for my husband's 30th birthday. When we arrived the staff sang a "Happy Birthday" song for us! Very thoughtful. The room was very clean and charming (we had a private double room). Free sangria every evening was just what we needed! We took tours with Filippo and Mehdi and they were amazing, both of them. They took good care of us and gave us useful info about the city's history, and took us to the best tapas deal we could dream of. Severine + Rahul
i've been travelling around europe for over 2 months so far and found the most amazing staff here. very friendly, helpfull... they know pretty much everybody by their names. they are unique
Best hostel of the trip. Feedback, please it up.
Wonderful group of people running the hostel, and always a great mix of people passing through. Everyone is very willing to make friends and there is very much a communal feeling to this hostel. The breakfast is free and plentiful, but be quick in the mornings! Toilets and showers are in very good condition and well-kept. There are lots of activities and always plenty going on, day and night. The hostel itself is what you make of it: you can be as loud or as quiet as you like, and this is great.
Though I can't fault the hostel, it was not the one for me. I checked out early because of the people in my room and location of the hostel. Maybe it was just me, but I had great difficultly getting to and from the hostel from the city center. When I told Valentina I need to check out early, she was very understanding and accommodating.
Great hostel with nice rooms and bathrooms are good too. Good atmosphere with lots to do where they organise trips from the hostel.
Best hostel I have stayed in. The free walking tours are informative and hilarious and the staff is wonderfully friendly. They have a great common area that's regularly populated and free sangria for an hour every night. A few of their extras (like bicycles and the pub crawl) are a bit expensive, but not unreasonable. I didn't try any other places in Sevilla, but I felt no need to. I'll be back!
Free sangria rocks, and walking tour with Medi was the shizz.
One of the better hostels I've been to! Great staff, good location, wifi works most of the time and the kitchen is well stocked. Will certainly be back if i'm in Seville!
The amenities provided by this hostel by far surpass any that I have been to. The have free internet on computers, a few pages of free printing, free sangria, tea, and coffee. It is a great social environment. And the walking tours are some of the best I have ever attended. Thanks, Meydi!!! You are amazing! He should be your tour guide.
I wax very impressed with the relaxed atmosphere at thic hostel. Plenty of room and placed for all the different types of people to be comfortable. The highlight of my stay was taking two free walking tours with the hilarious and knowledgeable guide, Medi. I would highly recommend his tours as you will get to see the city, laugh, and even meet some cool people.
