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.

Liked: One of the best hostels I've stayed at. Perfect location. Awesome rooftop terrace for sun and sangria. The friendliness of the staff really made this a great hostel, particularly Manuela who took us out to one night to a flamenco show and bars. The free walking tour organised by the hostel was great - the guide was really friendly and knowledgeable. Free breakfast was good.

Disliked: There could have been more toilets on our floor.

Liked: Cool terrace roof with nice view of the cathedral, especially at night. Simple free breakfast provided every morning. Wi-fi worked pretty well in the rooms. Walking tours were great, fun and informative. Guy with orange hair from New York highly recommended.

Disliked: Beds were metal framed beds and felt like prison beds, didnt help that the mattress was very thin too. Lacking in kitchen utensils like proper pots and pans and also condiments and cling film. Inconvenient ir cooking but the plus side is that you dont need to do the dishes because they clean it for you with a dishwasher. Biggest qualm about this place is the staff. They were friendly but unfortunately for us, did not provide accurate information. Wrong description of location for the supermarket, confused times and prices for flamenco, and worst of all directing us to the wrong bus station making us miss our bus to Cordoba (there are several bus stations in Seville)

Liked: nice facilities. nice roof top terrace and a big kitchen

Disliked: we waited in the lobby for over an hour waiting for the girl at reception to check us in. then they made us change rooms after the first night without ever telling us we had to do this when we checked in which was quite inconvenient. apart from that, the hostel is fine and the staff are relatively helpful
