Are you looking for a list of the best hostels in Seville? This beautiful southern Spanish city is a destination that you should definitely include in your Spain travel itinerary.

Here is a list of what I believe are the 5 best hostels and guesthouses in Seville:

And luckily for you, Seville actually has some excellent hostels at great prices.

Hostels in Seville are generally a blend of a cool historic vibe and nice modern facilities. Most hostels are very centrally located close to the top tourist attractions, and Seville’s city center is small enough to walk many places! As an added bonus, many hostels have rooftop terraces (some of them even have a nice swimming pool!) so you can enjoy the nice weather and also escape from the crazy hot summer temperatures.

There are both party hostels and spots for a quieter stay depending on your preference.

Booking a hostel in Seville can be overwhelming with so many options out there. How do you choose and book a backpacker hostel from the never-ending list of search results?

Don’t worry, because I have done all the hard work for you…

My 5 best hostels in Seville

For You Hostel Sevilla

This is without a doubt my top pick for the best high-end hostel in Seville.

Set in a historic building, For You Hostel is a super stylish place with very cool surroundings that offers amazing boutique style private rooms. So if you’re traveling in couple looking for a fancy place to spend a few nights, you’re going to love it.

Equally, if you’re a solo traveler, take advantage of all the amenities.

3 reasons why you’ll love it:

  • Tasty complimentary breakfast.
  • Large kitchen with plenty of room to cook.
  • Female-only dorms.

La Banda Rooftop Hostel

This is a cool hostel with an actual backpackers vibe. In other words, it doesn’t feel like a corporate chain without any kind of personality.

Featuring a wonderfully quaint terrace with a modest view of the Cathedral and a small garden that lined the railings, La Banda Rooftop Hostel is a perfect place to relax, read a book or type away on your laptop. If you want a clean environment with accommodating staff, a social atmosphere to meet other travelers, but enough of a laid-back atmosphere that you can still sleep at night (and sleep in late!), then this is the place for you.

3 reasons why you’ll love it:

  • Excellent location.
  • Very welcoming staff.
  • Stunning views of the Cathedral from its rooftop terrace.

Onefam Catedral

Part of the Onefam chain, it’s by far the most popular hostel in Seville.

This place is super social and has the best-rated atmosphere in Seville so you’ll meet other travelers. Another good thing about Onefam Catedral is that it has a nice view of the Cathedral from the terrace, plus the free dinners and snacks.

However, it can become a bit noisy despite not being a party hostel.

3 reasons why you’ll love it:

  • Excellent central location in the historic center of Seville.
  • Complimentary family-style dinner every night.
  • Three common areas where you can meet people.

Black Swan Hostel Sevilla

This hostel is great value for money.

Not only is the price good by itself, but this also means free tasty dinners as well as a complimentary breakfast. Black Swan Hostel Sevilla also puts on a free flamenco show and has a sunny terrace.

The staff members do a nice job of creating a friendly and social atmosphere so meeting fellow travelers is easy, especially in the garden patio or the roof terrace.

3 reasons why you’ll love it:

  • Friendly and social atmosphere.
  • Lots of freebies, including complimentary breakfast and dinner.
  • Well-loved by former guests.

The Nomad Hostel

It’s managed by local Sevillanos, who have experience backpacking and know Seville extremely well, so they can tell you all the best places to go and they are available 24/7.

With the three common areas of the interior terrace, the chill-out lounge, and the rooftop terrace, The Nomad Hostel is the perfect place to meet people from all over the world.

It’s great for solo travelers who want a calm and quiet place.

3 reasons why you’ll love it:

  • Complimentary breakfast and all-day coffee and tea.
  • Large selection of diverse room types.
  • Staff always up to help share their favorite things about Seville.

5 tips to book your Seville hostel

  • The best area to stay in Seville is Centro. The central location should give you the chance to enjoy exploring like a tourist, and getting into the groove of life as a local, especially if you’re a first-time visitor. Alternatively, you could also stay in Triana, but it’s definitely less convenient.
  • During Seville’s high season prices skyrocket, so expect to pay at least 20-40€/night. Rates are much more reasonable the rest of the year, especially during low season (15-20€).
  • The best hostels in Seville do sell out quickly, so you’ll be stuck with what is left if you wait to the last minute. Book early to get the best prices, especially if you intend to be in Seville during high season.
  • Not all staff members at Seville hostels are fun, ready to show you a good time in the city, while having a professional touch. Look for a place where the staff is local, or at least are very knowledgeable about Seville and all its hot spots. Ask them to sit down with you and show them to you on a map. They should love the city and strive to make you to enjoy it just as much as they do!
  • There are 20+ hostels in Seville and not all offer the best prices, excellent facilities and a good atmosphere. Do your research, establish what you’re looking for in terms of price, location and perks, and you’ll end up making the right choice.
