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

I traveled to Seville with 3 other girls, and this hostel came in quite well-recommended, and for good reason! First of all, the staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The rooms and beds were quite comfortable, and I had the opportunity to meet a lot of awesome travelers. The hostel's pub crawl is definitely worth the 10 Euros one pays... More

Staff is very friendly. Shadia explained everything about the hostel very clearly with a very bright smile. She also pointed out most attractions on the map and gave me tips on how to find my way back to the hostel. Free tasty Sangrias from 8-9pm but they were not that strong. There was not an outlet at my bed and... More

This was the first time I ever stayed somewhere and because of the LODGING wished I was staying longer. I was only in Sevilla about 30 hours, and spent one night at The Garden Backpacker, but I have no major qualms with the place (there wasn't an outlet reachable from every bed, but I did have a bed next to...
