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

Liked: Great location, central and easy to walk many places. Rooftop terrace is pleasant.

Disliked: The room I stayed in (8 beds) was very tight on space. The windows had to be kept open for air. Don't expect much sleep without ear plugs as this part of town doesn't seem to sleep. Bathroom did the job but would be nice if the showers had more space in the cubicle so items would not so easily get splashed resting on the lone flimsy hook.

Liked: Excellent overall.

Disliked: It was a little bit difficult to notice the hostel as there is not that much propaganda of it, but I guess that's also good because it remains more personal.

12 July 2011 Debbie would recommend this property

Liked: We booked an ensuite room with four beds. The room was very nice and clean, same for the bathroom, that had the atmosphere of a hotel. The staff was superfriendly, they we're ready to help with everything. Also the kitchen was very clean and we found everything we needed there.

Disliked: When there are people on the roof, or later, in the kitchin at night, the noise of the taking kinda echoes through the whole building, because of the shaft in the middle. And when we asked to follow the free guide tour, some guys just dropped us with another group, that was full of much older people and they moved on really slow so we left them and guided ourselves.

Liked: Central tot he city Kitchen available to use

Disliked: No privacy to dorms to outside world !!! No curtains . I have never ever been to a hostel with such bad shared facilities. Never mixied never only one toilet - What happens if it stopped working? And showers were not big enough for dry area in privacy. On party night 50 plus people were wandering in dorm corridors looking for a toilet. BIG PROBLEM
