Are you looking for a list of the best hostels in Seville? The city is loaded with cheap, well-run budget accommodations, making the city a natural choice for backpackers.
Where you stay often shapes your view of the city. While the location of the hostel is important, it’s the hostel’s amenities that make your stay relaxing and fun. And don’t forget people, because making authentic connections with strangers makes up some profound memories, and it’s also the best way to experience another culture.
Why booking a hostel instead of a regular hotel?
First, rates are extremely cheap compared to any other accommodation in Europe. Expect to pay approximately 16-20 € for a bed in a dorm, more or less the regular rates around Europe (except very expensive cities like London or Paris). In fact, hostel dorms are the best value for budget travelers because the bigger the room, the cheaper the cost. The downside is that you have to share a room with a lot of people, but no one said that saving money was easy.
Then, even though good hostels are always hard to come by, hostels in Seville are great value and cool places to meet other travellers. All of them give you a place to hang out and socialize with other travelers. These common areas encourage interaction and you will easily meet people.
Finally, the managers generally know your needs and offer a nice atmosphere. Everything from tapas tours, live music, and art exhibitions to free guided tours, hostels always have something going on.
Here’s a list of the best hostels and guesthouses in Seville, all of which I’ve personally inspected.
The Boutike Hostel: Apart from the excellent location, this modern and recently restored hostel provides spacious and comfortable rooms. The facilities and staff are more like a boutique hotel than hostel and if it weren’t for the dorm rooms and bunk beds you wouldn’t notice it wasn’t a hotel. You will feel as warm as at home.
La Banda Rooftop Hostel: Run by four Brits who had long been friends and had a dream of running a hostel in a Spanish speaking country, they have created the perfect atmosphere for travelers. Featuring a wonderfully quaint terrace with a modest view of the Cathedral and a small garden that lined the railings, it’s a perfect place to relax, read a book or type away on your laptop.
The Nomad Hostel: Managed by local Sevillanos, this place is a wonderful reflection of the Sevillian way of life: slow, cozy, and heartwarming! With the three common areas of the interior terrace, the chill-out lounge, and the rooftop terrace, this hostel is the perfect place to meet people from all over the world.
Sevilla Kitsch Hostel Art: Very well located, just a few steps away from the Cathedral (you can see the Giralda from the rooftop terrace!) and the other monuments. With spacious rooms and big lockers inside, you won’t have any problem to find yourself comfortable. The common areas are comfortable and warm, with a nice kitchen to prepare your favorite dishes. Overall a good place to stay in Seville.
Sevilla Hostel One Centro: The hostel is only a 5-minute walk from the main shopping area, and a 15-minute walk to all the sights. Additionally, it is located only a few blocks away from the Alameda de Hércules, an area known for its lively pubs, friendly locals and vibrant musical scene. Finally, don’t miss the top roof terrace, it’s the best place to relax and chill out after an exhausting day!
Oasis Backpackers Hostel: Located just a few blocks from the Palacio de Lebrija and the Plaza de la Alfalfa (an area with great nightlife!), this modern and clean hostel provides a quiet and nice ambience. The rooms (all with a window or a terrace) are set around a large central patio, as it is custom in Sevillian houses.
Samay Hostel Sevilla: Next to the barrio de Santa Cruz, this hostel is located only a short walk away from the most important sights. The hostel has a quite modern decoration and the facilities are pretty new. The staff is nice and organizes some extra activities (walking tour, tapas tour at night). The only downside is that it can be a bit noisy depending on the room because it is located in a main avenue.
