First the positives. The hostel is located in the historical heart of the city, just around the corner from the Mezquite. The building has a ton of classic charm and a small but comfortable rooftop. Rooms are very reasonably priced. Staff were responsive to requests for basic items and let us leave our bags at the desk after check out....

Our experience consisted of very friendly priced beer and a plate of the patatas bravas. But those patatas, let me tell you, those tasty patatas really do stand out with their garlicky goodness, from frequent " slap some frozen fries on the plate with some sauce / they will eat it, we look like a decent place" patatas I have...

Poor lighting in the rooms, claustrophobic restrooms, NO WI-FI IN THE ROOMS - internet access is possible only in the patio. However, great location in proximity of the Mezquita,in the very heart of the old town; nice patio - good place to relax and rest from the heat; helpful staff.

We did not stay here, but we accidently step in this place and felt in love with its lovely inner garden. After that we did not miss a day to bait and have a bear or sangria. Its top advantages – very good shade, central location, cold drinks, good service and charming decoration.

Quaint building with old interesting furniture pieces etc. Good quiet location.Clean room,beds were very low and bucket for water overflow in bathroom which we kept emptying or it would have gone all over the floor. One of the female staff was very ignorant and despite our patience made us wait for a very lengthy time to be served for breakfast...

We did not stay at the Seneca but, during our recent 3 day trip to Cordoba we and our friends had breakfast here twice. A half tostada, freshly squeezed orange juice and coffee for 3.50€, served in a quaint breakfast room by a delightful young lady; what's not to like!

We totally fell in love with this place. Cosy, romantic, cute hostel, nice people (and quiet at night!!) We stayed in the Twin Ensuite (2 person bedroom and private bathroom), which had everything you need: sheets, towels, soap (and a great shower!). Once you step out of the hostel, you're in the middle of small streets with little restaurants, bars...

This is a very good place to stay for travelers on a budget in Cordoba. The hostel is very central, the staff is so welcoming and the inside patio is a blessing after a long day walking around Cordoba. The 4 bed room I share was rather big, and the place is clean.

Hostel was very nice, rooms clean and tidy, nice inner courtyard. Girl on the reception gave us some useful information, where to go for a drink, and map of the city with places suggested by locals, and it was great. We would recommend this hostel

The room I was in had a window which faced an alley with a bright streetlamp. The curtains were not of high enough quality to keep the light out. Just as bad, the historic building has windows between rooms and the hall (to circulate air in hot weather). Whenever another patron turned on the hall light my room also lit...
