“Place blows”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2012 via mobile

Overrated, place sucks. No late check out, so if you want to party your last night DO NOT go here.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2012

Last summer, 2011, I stayed in this Hostel for a couple of nights. The staff is very friendly, wants to help you every time. The beds were good, the roofterrace is very nice to relax at the end of the day and. The free tour every day is very nice. I traveld by bus to Sevilla and was kinda tired when i arrived. I had a choise: sleeping or going for a walk and do something. The trip started 15 min after i arrived so i did the tour. Very good way to get to know some people who are staying in the hostel.

Room Tip: THe free tour every day is a good way to start your trip in Sevilla.

This place is spacious, centrally located and very clean. There's loads of space in the dorms and the mattresses are very comfortable. I loved the shared areas because for a solo traveller you never felt alone. It's also not a party hostel so you can get a good night's sleep. The rooftop terrace is amazing and just as good as in the photos. The best part of this place for me was the staff. They were very friendly and helpful and nothing was too much trouble. They'll even wash AND dry your laundry for a small fee. Thanks to all the crew at Samay, I love you guys!

Room Tip: Choose any, they are all good and very quiet.

Our group consisted of 3 people and we stayed in a 4 person room with ensuite. The room and bathroom was clean and bright. The staff were always helpful and they were happy to check our bags for us on the last day because we had a later flight. They had wifi and a few communal computers you could use. We did the free walking tour and the tapas tour and loved both of them. We were still a little hungry after the tapas tour but it was mostly about trying new things and meeting new people. Everyone there was so nice and fun. The tapas tour ended at this little bar that had free flamenco shows which were better than the shows we shelled out 40 euros for in madrid! We walked everywhere and it was nice that its was close to the cathedral and alcazar. The gardens of the alcazar are amazing and definately worth seeing. The free walking tour was also really good and highly recommended. There is a convenient store close by where we bought bottled water and drinks. There is a roof top terrace but it was too hot to sit up there for us.

Room Tip: I recommend private rooms with ensuites.

First of all, the location. There is bus connection to the long-distance bus station, and it takes less than 10min walk to the cathedral. There is sandwich shop providing good snack food, and supermarket is very close by. So it is quite convenient.

Staff are very helpful, and resourceful. I tried the flamenco show recommended by the hostel staff. And it turned out to be surprisingly good! Didn't try the tapas bar crawl though.

Room is reasonably clean and bright. Lockers are provided, which is nice too. There is a roof terrace with music, which is one of my favorite places in the late night with a glass of wine.

I think the only drawback was that during my stay there were some people next door smoking in their room with loud music and loud "chatting". This is totally not respecting other people. But of course it has nothing to do with the high quality of the hostel itself.

Ah, and the bunker is really low, so I had difficulty to even sit properly on my bed - I am a shortie!

In conclusion, I would like to stay here again if I go to Seville again.

The first night I was allocated a room in the apartment building next door to the main building of the hostel. It was inconvenient that the kitchen, common area and wifi are in the main building, but it wasn’t a huge issue. Unfortunately one of the roomies was a bit disrespectful with personal hygiene and noise. I asked the staff if it was possible to move into another room the next night and they were very helpful. I ended up moving to the main building, which was much better, definitely recommended. It seems to be for 4 or 6 bed rooms with private bathrooms. They offer quiet a few different tours. I did the free morning walk tour which was worthwhile to know a little of the history of the city. There is a good kitchen to make breakfast or they will provide a basic breakfast for 2.50. Linen is nice and clean.
