Liked: incredibly great central location a few minutes walking from the main cathedral, although their entrance sign was so small that I overlooked and passed it, while I was looking for it for the first time. My room was located on the grand floor, so that there was no staircase to climb at all. The staff was very pleasant and kind, so staying there was very cozy. Free wifi and cool rock music they play at the reception and lounge area, it made me feel as though i was staying in my friend's home.

Disliked: none

Liked: I liked the view from the roof but the picture of the roof on the website doesn't reflect the actual roof. it's a lot smaller and dirtier. But the views are incredible. You can see Sevilla Cathedrale.

Disliked: The lockers were very small, there wasn't any character. The breakfast in the morning is ok but there is no microwave in the breakfast area so you have to climb up stairs with a cup of milk if you wish to have a hot chocolate! a bit silly really. I stayed in 8 different hostals and hotels that week and that was the worst one. The most annoying thing is the bathroom. Only one for a lot of people so you have to wait, we wasted 1 hour of our travelling time just waiting for a bathroom.

Liked: Lots of free computers for internet, good size kitchen

Disliked: The point of the place is the roof terrace but my first night theyd rented it out so we couldnt use it!! There is only ONE toilet for all the shared dorms, so book a small room. No blackout blinds means early light.

Liked: location.

Disliked: it has been dificult to find that place. and there was only one bathroom(toilet and shower) in the property and we needed to queue for a longtime to get there. most of the time we had to go toilet in another places( such as burger king, bars or public places. that is incredible. what a shame.

Liked: Friendly staff. Free tea, coffee or hot chocolate at any time (just ask at reception) and they will lend you a netbook to use to access the internet if you don't have your own. You can borrow it for 1 hour and if nobody else wants it then renew for another hour.

Disliked: Only 1 toilet for everybody who does not have an en-suite bathroom. This bathroom is on the 2nd floor. There was always a queue for the toilet (even in the early hours of the morning). It was really horrible being desperate to use the toilet and having to wait behind 3 other people. I asked at reception and there were no other toilets to use. I do not think this is acceptable. For this reason, I will never return to this hostel. Also, we could see into the next room (through the radiator grill space) and hear everything going on in both of the rooms next to us. We were all woken up by noisy people in one of the rooms next door at 3am (and then people in our room who had to wake up at 7am, which is reasonable). As there are 8 people per room and you can hear the people in the two rooms either side of your room, you are vulnerable to the noise of 24 people. The elevator is really small.

Liked: Wonderful, helpful, honest staff and ideal location. Incredibly clean and safe, 24 hour staff and gorgeous rooftop!

Disliked: There is only one common toilet and bathroom-- as it was a quiet weekend, this did not cause too many problems, however this would be incredibly difficult if the hostel was full.

01 November 2010 Hugo would recommend this property

Liked: This hostel looks and feels very spacious and clean from the inside. Wide Hallways, one of the best lobbies for its looks and comfort, and an even more memorable roof with a view of the cathedral. The Location is great, and the staff were 90 percent very helpful,(I´ll explain the 10 percent in a second of dislike in a second) The one shared bathroom is very spacious and clean. The free internet is appreciated.

Disliked: The beds were fine, but they charged for a blanket, which was needed in October. The biggest negative of the place is that the walls between rooms are basically nil sound-wise. There is a wall, but the vents mean that if, by chance, you get two very loud british girls very late at night, coming to have a chat and blow dry their boots(?) you, and everyone in your well behaved, very sleepy quite room will be woken up by the noise as if it was in your room. The rudeness of these people led to a bit of a confrontation, and when the staff were approached to help mediate, the staff member, (who otherwise was great) kind of brushed it off like it wasn´t his problem, and after all, what could he do. I do believe it should be his problem. Other slight negatives, the rooms were basically just a bunch of beds stacked together, with very little wiggle room, but that´s really okay for a hostel after all. The one bathroom was fine because it was a great bathroom with hot water and we were there when the hostel was about half full or a little more. There are rooms with their own bathrooms however, and if you´re coming at all in a busy time, you´d be strongly suggested to consider how you´d feel by waiting a very long time for a shower or a pee. There is a sign that says that you can use an alternate hidden bathroom if things are bad though, so its probably not all that terrible, but not terribly convenient either.
