The Garden Backpacker is about a 10 minute bus ride from the train station. It is in a great location in Seville. All of the major sights are within a 15 minute walk. Supermarket about 5 minute walk away. The rooms at Garden Backpacker are a little small but do have air conditioning and bathrooms ensuite. Lockers for small valuables.... More

Really cool hostel, good location and really good facilities. We instantly felt very welcome by the staff and were welcomed on the walking tour and pub crawl straight away! Our room was a great size, cool and quiet. It's a shame we couldn't stay longer! The only negative was it was really hard to find, and the directions on the... More

This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The place is really social as they offer free sangria in the evening, so most of the travellers were in the garden to have a drink and mingle with everyone. The hostel also offers diner every evenings which was really convenient and cheap as well. There's also "free" guided tour... More

Great place for independent travelers to meet people!! You will have no issues finding people to spend the day with. Although the heat during July will make it unbearable to be outside for more than 3 hours causing everyone to take very long siestas. But the free (watered down) Sangria brings everyone together again and you get a great mix... More

I would highly recommend this hostel. It was so huge and clean and so much space to socialise with people. We arrived late on our first night and for a sixer you can get a home cooked meal from the chef. It was so nice to not have to go anywhere and its free Sangria from 8.30pm for an hour.... More

I really enjoyed my stay at this hostel! The atmosphere was inviting and friendly, and I was able to meet many people. It is conveniently located, and a quick walk from the bus station and all of the major sites. The walking tour was quite amazing as well. Medi was entertaining and knowledgable, and answered all of my questions. I... More

Had the best time here in May! Valentina at check in was incredibly friendly and helpful! She accommodated a very early arrival and made our stay in Sevilla so much better! Great dinner served the courtyard for only 5€. Really friendly atmosphere, comfortable rooms and nice bathrooms. Would definitely recommend.

This was the best hostel I've stayed in! Free tea and coffee, well equipped and social kitchen, nice bar and courtyard area... Really the common areas at this hostel were great. Also a rooftop courtyard. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The dorm room I stayed in was basic but well ventilated and comfortable. The only thing I didn't... More
