Liked: If you like spending time in a beautiful and lively city whilst chatting with interesting people, drinking fantastic cocktails and listening to great music then this is the place for you. I can't recommend La Banda enough - I would go back in a heartbeat. It is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The atmosphere is super-chilled and ultra-friendly and that is all down to the guys who run the place. From the moment you step through the door you are made to feel at home by them. Their friendliness is impossible not to rub-off on you and everyone else staying at the hostel and results in a family-like, community feel. The rooftop itself is beautiful, with wonderful views of the Cathedral and Seville skyline. Every evening people congregate there for fantastic food and cocktails from the bar (the Cucumber Collins is a must). It is a great way to start the evening and get to know people before heading off to experience Seville's night life. The other outstanding feature of the hostel is the decor. The style is arty but done in such a tasteful way. Every space has intriguing photos or cool posters on the wall, but still keeps a chilled and uncluttered feel.

Disliked: I absolutely loved everything about the place and didn't want to leave so there was nothing I disliked.

Liked: Very chilled and enjoyable atmosphere. The decor is very bohemian and quirky - which really lends its hand to the overall experience I think the hostel is trying to create and offer travelers.

Disliked: Nothing really. My room was a little small, but still pretty comfortable - But large private bathroom.

Liked: Great place! Probably the best hostel I ever stayed in.

Disliked: If there's even something to crtítisize then it's the bell. You hear it in the whole hostel, and that's sometimes pretty annoying (for example if you want to sleep).

Liked: The staff were great, the hostel is clean, the rooftop is radical! The food they cooked for dinner was great, we honestly had the best time here. Really sad we only stayed two nights, but got to go out and party with all the staff. The kitchen was well equipped too! Stay here if you go to Seville, coolest hostel out!

Liked: Everything! The rooftop bar is lovely and you will for sure end up meeting a whole bunch of fun and interesting people whether you intend to or not! The staff are very welcoming and willing to help you with whatever you need, including proper local knowledge (tapas tips, discounted flamenco) and they even made an effort to include the guests in their own night out. Very homely feel, comfy beds and if you are looking to relax the rooftop is very chill and there are lots of good board games in the common area. I had so much fun in Seville thanks to the hostel and the crowd it attracts, its possibly the best one I've ever stayed in!

Disliked: The only thing they could maybe improve upon is that they don't have locks on the lockers, but if you don't have many valuables then it doesn't even matter because they can lock smaller items at reception for you. In our part of the building there were only two toilets and two showers (one for guys, one for girls) but surprisingly this never became an issue, I never encountered a queue or a bathroom area any less than sparkling!

Liked: One of the best hostels I've ever stayed at. The staff are so friendly and helpful and take the time to get to know the names of everyone staying. The location is in the centre of everything in Seville. The beds were super comfortable with decent pillows, individual curtains, power points and lights, which can be hard to come across in hostels. The roof top bar with family dinners was such a great atmosphere and a wonderful way to get to know fellow travellers. Plus the food was super tasty.

Disliked: I did have a cold shower a couple of times, but it was such a good hostel I was almost prepared to overlook this.

Liked: It was very well run. All rooms fully air condicioned with clean beds and sheets. Rooftop was lovely, and the family dinner on the rooftop was well worth the money, alot better than some of the meals we had out. Also laundry service is very effective, quick turnover with your clothes washed and ironed

Disliked: Nothing really. but would maybe be good if they had more organised activities for people at night
