Overall experience was not really comfortable. The hostel promises a lot more than what it actually delivers. The access cards were not working, the staff were not really helpful and the showers were really small.

Basic and convenient hostel for young people! Great staff and value for money👌🏻if you are looking for a cheap hostel with all facilities.... This is the place to be! Apart from that - Location is centric, in 5 minutes you are in 'LaGiralda' and near the 'Guadalquivir' 100%

The hostel is very conveniently located on a main street, walking distance to all the main sites and easy to get to from the bus station. The front desk staff was exceptional, offering personal tips of where to go and what to do with limited time and money. The cleanliness of the shower in my room left much to be... More

Centrally located, to all the shops and sites. I was in a room of 6 which was a bit of a nightmare as there were no extra showers just the one to a room. Rooms spacious and clean though. I was part of a tour fruit and for breakfast we had to walk up the street to a buffet type... More

The Hostel is located in one of the main routes of the city, at a walk able distance from the city centre and the train station. The hostel is very clean and tidy. The rooms have a good size, only 3 bunk beds with a lot of space to move around the room and a private toilet. The hostel also... More

I've been to Sevilla for a quick trip and I found this hostel, because it was very close to the center but at the same time not really inside of it. I rent a car over there and the reason why I choose Samay was even because it is located very close to an (almost) free parking in front of... More

Not sure if it was just when I was there, but there was no air conditioning offered so it was quite hot in the room. Lots of great common areas, the roof top terrace is wonderful. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Kitchen available for your use. Rooms are clean, beds are comfy. Little noisy because our window opened out... More

Pros: Satisfactory location, easy walking access to most sights (be sure to check out Plaza de Espana). Cons: the bunk beds were tiny (coming from a 5 ft person), watch out for your head! Wifi in common space only. The water in the shower diverges drastically between hot and cold which makes for tactical showering Would benefit from a larger... More

I traveled around the world and stayed so many different hostels but the Samay Hostel is the worst place in the world. The staffs were unfriendly and snobbish. Breakfast is so bad the staffs were eating their own food. And worst of all, they charged me for a second night when I did not stay. When I was checking in,... More
