“Brilliant hostel, amazing location & the best hosts!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 17, 2014

Really cool hostel with an excellent location and amazing views of the cathedral from the (extremely cheap!) rooftop bar. Welcoming hosts who are always there with brilliant recommendations for things to do and places to eat. Very clean and great showers (a hostel rarity) Homecooked meals and a really great atmosphere in the evenings. The best hostel I've stayed in and without a doubt the only place to stay in Seville!

Owned by those 4 brittish friends, this is the perfect hostel for those who are travelling alone or with friends. Close to everything, it is cheap and has awesome food (cooked by the owners), as well as well as good music going on all the time. The rooftop is an unique experience and the reception is also a good place to stay and chat.

The first thing that greets traveler in this hostel are some really cool folks from Cambridge who decided to establish a hostel in a city they think good enough to settle in. Perhaps this bit of information explains the excitement and positive vibe this hostel has : it is run by people who love Seville. I spent a day in the place - wish I had more time - and I did enjoy and appreciate every moment and service these guys had. Location was super, place was ambient, people great, clean, comfy beds, and - what else ? I definitely recommend this place for travelers.

The most fantastic hostel!! And the loveliest owners!! The communal areas in the hostel are brilliant - really great decor in the reception and chill out zone downstairs, which is also a fantastic place to meet the other people staying at the hostel. The roof top terrace has an awesome view of the cathedral, which looks amazing lit up at night. Theres always great tunes playing, creating some really chilled out vibes for the guests.

We had such a corker of a time, munching down some of the tastiest food cooked by each of the handsome owners on different nights. We were also so impressed by the quality of the food, and the fact that about 20 of us were eating at the same time, in a family style atmosphere. Great for solo travellers and groups alike. Really clean facilities and cracking new beds!! LOVED IT!!! Xxxx

Wonderful atmosphere and a great view on the roof terrace. Comfortable and clean bedrooms and bathrooms. Friendly, helpful and hunky staff who cook a mean evening meal sometimes using one of the most beautiful rice cookers I have ever seen.

The owners of this hostel (4 young Brits) absolutely love Sevilla and they absolutely love to make sure travelers have a good experience while in Sevilla.

The hostel has a perfect location (about 1 block from bull fighting stadium, 5 min walk to La Plaza de Espana, 2 min walk to the Cathedral, and 1min walk to the river).

The rooftop view of the cathedral is stunning, and enjoying a home cooked meal (for only 6euro!!) or a delicious cocktail/beer from on the rooftop, is even better.

The hostel is newly renovated so many of the rooms, beds, and bathrooms are new. I had a 6 bedroom mixed dorm ensuite and it was great. Everything was clean and the beds were quite comfortable.

They have probably the best kitchen I have seen at a hostel. They have plenty of refrigerator and food storage space. They have a brand new range/stove, oven, and microwave and plenty of cooking utensils/dishes/pots, etc.

To add to all of this, the hostel was very reasonable and it seemed to attract the perfect mix of travelers. Usually the evening began with drinks on the rooftop, followed by an amazing home cooked meal by the staff, and then a few more cocktails before going out. The meal definitely brings everyone together and is a great way to meet other travelers.

Room Tip: The ensuite with a bathroom built into it on the first floor was great!!

I really loved my 3 night stay at La Banda. First off, simple but nice facilities. The beds were comfortable and everything in the rooms very sanitary. Nice, clean bathrooms - they had someone cleaning at least once every day - with washer and dryer and hot showers. We stayed in the shared room and had no complaints about that. It was quite a good way to meet people actually.

The guys who are running the hostel - 4 friendly, young English guys - have done a great job with the place. It has a relaxed, loft-like, familial atmosphere with some nice common spaces. The rooftop terrace and bar are awesome, along with the kitchen. The guys also do a great job at making the experience seem very personal - they seem to make an effort to at least get to know everyone a bit. They are also incredibly helpful, full of good reviews, and willing to call anyone or even run around town for something you need (not that you should necessarily ask them to do that).

Every night they do a big "family dinner" on the rooftop for 6 euros. They give you lots of food, and it's nice to have some delicious home cooking. Family dinner is a fantastic way to meet the people from all over that are staying at the hostel.

Overall, a great place. They absolutely do not overcharge for anything, more than fair prices in my opinion. And a really pleasant atmosphere in a beautiful location. If I ever return to Sevilla, I will most certainly go back! Thanks to the guys for a super memorable experience in Sevilla.
