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%.

Liked: This place is perfect for Seville, I honestly couldn't imagine staying in a nicer environment. Initially, I booked for 2 nights but the day I arrived, immediately I extended it and have stayed here for a whole week because the hostel was so great, not to mention Seville, which completely took me by surprise as one the nicest cities in Europe. This hostel attracts the nicest people and the staff make you feel like you're in your own living room in the common reception area. It's quiet, but has an intimate liveliness to it which makes it great for meeting people. The terrace on the rooftop has such a nice atmosphere and view and one of the guys who works the night shift, is a professional flamenco player and often brings his guitar onto the rooftop - he's really good, you can sit there all night listening in silence. Stay here, you won't regret it.

Disliked: Absolutely nothing.

Liked: netbooks for guests, professional stuff, air condition, roof terrace

Disliked: one toilet in a 6bed room is not always sufficient if people queue up to take shower...would be good to have bathrooms to share...bathrooms in the dorm are nice but finally not handy when the room is booked out, I was there at end of august...so not too many people and the bar on the terrace closed...I liked that but would have disliked a noisy crowded place...so in oct/sept. I don t know It would be good to have a busmap because the indication for the busstop to the station was not correct ...it takes about an hour to get to santa justa

Liked: Ovearll, the Living Roof was a great hostel to stay at for our time in Seville. We were in a 4 bed ensuite which was good becase the rest of the hostel only had 1 or 2 washrooms for everyone else. Very central and great staff! The walking tour with Alverto (I think that's how you spell it)... was really good, he had great stories and showed us all the major parts of the city.
