Staff was incredibly friendly - there weren't many travelers staying there because of the time of the year (November) but they the staff all knew my name by heart. When me and some other guys from the hostel went out one night, they even got us some leftover pizza for when we came back! Incredible!

Reception service is good, they are very kind and happy to give information on the city and attractions. Breakfast could be better, but it is a hostel... The floor I was has only one bathroom and shower in the same place, so if you are not lucky to arrive at a quiet time, it can be challenging to find a...

I came here with my friends for a short visit in Sevilla. Inside the hostel is very clean, they also has a roof top with table and chairs that you can relax after all walking all day in the heat. Which is really nice. At the front desk they provide heaps of touristic information and one of the Flamenco show...

I think the best of this place is the staff. Incredibly friendly and helpful. Also the breakfast which is appropiated. THe beds are comfortable, not the best but decent ones, clean. The bad thing is that is very noisy when you enter to your room and I'm pretty sure you awake the other people which shares the room with you....

The staff were very friendly, the rooms and facilities were quite nice and "sleek" (I'm always a sucker for aesthetics!), everything was clean, bathrooms were nice, location was great - right off of Plaza Nueva, with plenty of restaurants and bars literally right outside the door and everything within walking distance. The breakfast was not amazing, but hey, it was...

The staff are extremely accommodating and friendly. They were willing to assist in anyway possible, and they did so with a smile on their face. The facilities are very clean, and the location is perfect. I felt very safe, and comfortable. Nothing but positivity after leaving this hostel. It was wonderful.

I came here for the Semana Santa week. You really couldn't ask for a better location for the price. You only had to walk out your door and you were right in the action. Additionally, the restaurant directly across the street had great food. The staff were extremely devoted and helpful, taking plenty of time during check-in to provide a...

“Avoid the "Aalto" 4-bed room, which is right behind the reception desk, as one of the windows does not close correctly. I complained about the noise and the receptionist promptly moved me to the adjacent room.”
