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

Liked: The guys running this place are incredible and really invested in making sure the place is as good as it can be. It is a beautiful, clean and safe hostel in a top area and the gents offer loads of really good and honest advice about Seville as well. They really go above and beyond to make sure everything is perfect and every demand is met. And it is. One of the best hostels I have stayed in so far. Would definitely go back here if I ever visit Seville again.

Liked: Our stay at La Banda Rooftop was incredible, it made our time in Sevilla so enjoyable. The atmosphere of the hostel was relaxed and the staff were so helpful and friendly. The nightly, rooftop family dinners were certainly highlight. The food and drinks were excellent and the rooftop has a beautiful view of the cathedral. The rooms were clean and had air conditioning which was a big plus to tackle the hot weather. Overall, would definitely recommend La Banda!!

Liked: The staff! Friendly, involved and part of the crowd. When something goes wrong, like the internet out or aircon off, they get right on it and resolve issues immediately.The location is amazing (from somebody who lived in Sevilla 3 years and knows the way around). The rooftop is a nice afternoon or night out with the other travelers and staff.

Disliked: Bit tight in the rooms. I don't like that they raise the prices for events, but everybody does. Worthwhile stay. This is a fun hostel more than a roomy, private place.

Liked: Great atmosphere and very friendly. In the evenings we ended up staying in the hostel and chatting with the other guests rather than going out in Seville. The greek meal that was cooked was also incredible and rooftop yoga was a great addition. The guys running it are doing a brilliant job. Would definitely recommend people to stay here

Liked: From the minute you walk in to the moment you leave, the four young, energetic and genuinley helpful owners make you feel at home. The common room on the main floor has great vibes where the roof top terrace has an amazing view to drink Toney Blairs on Spring Break. Yes, that is correct, these four individuals even have created their own cocktails. This hostel comes highly recommended. All in all, this is a fantasic hostel that is sure to make you stay in Seville even more enjoyable.

Disliked: I had to leave too soon.

Liked: This is one of the best hostels I have ever stayed in. You won't find a better location or a better atmosphere anywhere else. You guys are sooo awesome! You make everyone feel at home and part of La Banda banda. You always have time for everyone and know a lot about Sevilla and the Spanish customs. The beds are really comfy, the communal meals are delicious and a real bargain. I would come to Sevilla again just so I could stay at La Banda!

Liked: All essentials delivered well: Clean bedrooms and bathrooms, good showers, and friendly and helpful staff. Good kitchen and lounge also provided, and the communal meals are an excellent opportunity to get to know other travellers together: all makes for a great atmosphere, and a quality hostel.

Disliked: Only drawback of the communal meals is that it was difficult to persuade people to go out and explore the city by night! Owners showed no sign of frustration that I tried though, which is to their credit. Flipside of the security afforded by a manned door is that you sometimes had to twiddle thumbs for a moment waiting to be let in, but this is nitpicking.
