How to find the best hostels in Seville for your trip

Of all Spain’s cities, Seville – the Andalusian capital, is by far the swankiest. This is a city that delights in the finer things in life; constant sunshine, riverside living, alfresco dining, live music and dancing until late into the night. On top of that, everywhere you turn you’ll find historic buildings and some of the most jaw-dropping architectural marvels the world has ever known, including Plaza de España and Alcazar de Sevilla. The city is a gorgeous spot to spend a few days and the best hostels in Seville ensure you can do so on an affordable budget. Temperatures during summer months can err on the extreme side, so peak season here falls between April and June. Expect to pay between €20-40 per night during busy season (especially during spring festivals like Semana Santa), and around €18-25 the rest of the year.
