Liked: The room was clean and the hostel was in a fantastic location. Breakfast of toast, jam, cereal, tea and coffee was provided.

Disliked: The main member of the staff was extremely rude. She was openly disrespectful and when I called her out and told her that as the customer I should not have to deal with rude staff, her attitude only got worse and she told me I could leave the hostel. Her behavior was so negative that I would NEVER recommend The Living Roof to anyone and I will never stay there again. There are plenty of other inexpensive hostels around the Cathedral that have the same amenities.

Liked: Probably the best hostel I've ever stayed in. I liked the bar up top, despite the fact no one was really there when we stayed. Location is amazing.

Disliked: Brekkie was a bit boring; but oh well. Go eat out for brekkie anyway - ur in Spain!

Liked: Awesome location, and great atmosphere, even if it was a little quiet. Great value for money hostel, right in the centre of Sevilla. Kitchen is really big, and they left the aircon running 24/7 for us because it was so hot. Staff are really friendly, and the rooftop bar is fantastic too.

Disliked: Kitchen could do with a few more utensils, but not a major issue at all.

Liked: This is the best hostel I have stayed in. The included padlock for the lockers, towels, linen and breakfast make it great value and even with just these it would be a very good hostel. The roof terrace with a view of the cathedral and a bar and grill where you can get beer, sangria, gazpacho as well as grilled burgers, skewers and other stuff all served with grilled vegetables grown on the bartender´s organic farm is what really makes this place. The staff are all really friendly and happy to tell you about Sevilla and anything else you end up talking about and the bar crawl is great, again largely because of the people who run it and go along. Thr terrace is good to sit on all day and you are guaranteed to meet people. There is also a fussball table. Go here.

Disliked: Another few bathrooms would be good and the lock on the door of the room we were in was tricky.
