The location was fantastic,in the centre of Seville making site seeing so very easy. Walking distance to bars/restaurants etc and very close to the public transport system, Quite clean and comfortable rooms, not noisy at night time,so you can have a good sleep. Staff was courteous and helpful, bathrooms were clean. I will come back here again and also strongly... More

I find ridiculous that they charge 5 pounds per day for the use of air condition. This is a basic service that should be included in the price. The rooms are pretty basic, with a very tiny bathroom that makes really uncomfortable to take a shower. We couldn’t sleep because the noises from the street and from the other rooms... More

The staff was super nice and accommodating. They provided maps and gave recommendations on what to see and what to do. The room was small but honestly didn't spend much time in the room. However, taller/larger individuals may have a hard making bathroom and bedroom work.

Centrally located down an authentic sevillian street near the river. Small but cheerful and comfortable hostel with very welcoming hosts. Some rooms have Juliet balconies opening onto the street which is great to watch the people in the street . Recommend for fit people who don't mind climbing stairs.

This year I was travelling with a low budget, yet wanted to stay in place nice not to spoil the overall impression of the Spain. But to ruin it was impossible, 'cos all the places I've been in Andalusia for couple of weeks, I met only welcoming smiles and generosity. Hostal el Giraldillo has a perfect location as is almost...

This is a great little hostal. We were able to use as a base for all our excursions. I am glad I am only a small man or hobbit as I fitted the bed but I am 5' 4". The shower was about 9 sq inches but the whole place was immaculately clean and was cleaned to that high standard... More

CONS: €5 to use A/C and was not disclosed during booking - played w/ words "expected" on this booking (air conditioning) but never mentioned that you have to pay for it. Space was cramped of course. 1st - 3rd floors were steep/narrow and you better be careful when you get up to the stairs particularly when you have big luggages.... More

During my trip trough Spain which took place in June, I visited many different places including Seville. My original idea was to stay in the Parador De Carmona, however I noticed after my second day that Seville itself was sadly not that near, therefore I looked for a guesthouse which would be located within Sevilla. The Hostel el Giraldillo seemed... More

The Hostel was beautifully decorated, and it had lots of individuality and character. The staff was very friendly, always ready to help us. The room was clean and cute, we had a little tiny balcony that looked out on the street. Rooms were cleaned every day with pleasure and the air condition worked well.

A cosy, cheap hotel that is very clean with friendly staff. Rooms are small but this hotel is superb value for money and well positioned for exploring the old town. Just be aware that there are 3 floors, the stairs are steep and there are no lifts.
