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.

Liked: The staff where out there and willing to help, even if they didnt know the answer to your question they would research it. Rooms tidy and clean, saw the cleaning lady every day. They have stuff planned for nights, like free food on fridays on the roof terrace followed by a bar tour, so its a good hostel if you are alone. It is VERY centrally located, 3minutes walk to the cathedral and about 10minutes to the biggest shopping lane in Sevilla. Its a nice place to stay, and the *private* flaminco show is highly recommended.

Disliked: The room we stayed in was seperated only by a fake wall, from the next doors room, the lockers where quiet small; fits your valueables but not your pack, breakfast is your normal breaky

Disliked: There is ONLY ONE BATHROOM (TOILET AND WC TOGETHER) FOR ALL PEOPLE IN DORMS...AT LEAST 25 OR 30 PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! This is essentially a nightmare. If you ever want to use the toilet or shower, get ready to wait.

Liked: The best hostel I’ve ever been to! Well organized; very clean. I liked huge bathroom and the roof with great view. Also big lockers in spacious dorms were nice. Air conditioner, what should be norm in Spanish climate (in most cases hostel’s owners forget about it). Breakfast was typical (toasts and milk), but you could eat as much as you can. I can’t forgot about staff, who was very nice (English-speaking)! Overall –I recommend it in 100%.

Disliked: Nothing
