Liked: The beds were extremely comfortable, and the staff was incredibly nice and helpful. Also the location is fantastic! And the air conditioning worked splendedly! There were a lot of solo travelers, so it was really easy to make friends on the cree guided tours (fantastic tour guides) and go to the flamenco show! I would 100% recommend this hostel for anyone wanting to stay in Sevilla!

Liked: Very cute hostel. The common area, kitchen and terrace were really lovely. Breakfast was free and had many options (several types of cereal, milk, juices, toast, condiments, cookies). Location was also great and fairly easy to find.

Disliked: The rooms were very packed, it felt as though there were too many beds packed into one room. The lockers were inconviniently located right next to the doors. There were not enough plugs in the room for the number of guests. The lighting in the hostel was terrible. 1 light in the room, so if you came in late you could not see. No lights in the hall ways, so very difficult to see, even in the day. There were not enough showers considering the number of guests.

Liked: Very cheap, all you can eat breakfast included, really great location near great bars and restaurants, lots of books to swap, there was a pan of stew marked free in the fridge so i ate that, very good! very beautiful italian receptionist as well.

Disliked: the blinds on the windows were perforated! so there was not much darkness after dawn. There were two proper bathrooms, 1 hidden dowstairs, and these three weird little cubicles that weren't protected by a wall and a bit open.

Liked: Great location, super clean kitchen, good quality beds, lovely staff, roof terrace, One direction tip: If you pass station San Bernardo when arriving by train, it is easier to get off the train there and take the tram from there, or leave from this station if possible on your route. The website ony gives directions from Santa Justa.

Disliked: Nothing. My boyfriend forgot his glasses and they even sent them to us, luckily!

Liked: Petite auberge de jeunesse au centre ville de Séville à proximité de tout ce qu'il y à voir ! Emplacement parfait donc ! Les dortoirs sont propres, les sanitaires sont nickels. Le staff est super sympa, très chaleureux. J'ai passé un séjour très agréable du fait de la visite de cette ville et de l'endroit où je logeais ! Sorry for leaving this review in French !
