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

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 are traveling in couple looking for a fancy place to spend a few nights, you are going to love it. Equally, if you are a solo traveler, take advantage of all the amenities.
La Banda Rooftop Hostel: This is a cool hostel with an actual backpackers vibe. In other words, it does not 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, it’s 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.
Hostel One Catedral: Part of the Hostel One chain, it is by far the most popular hostel in Seville. This place is super social and has the best-rated atmosphere in Seville so you will meet other travelers. Another good thing about this hostel 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.
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. 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.
The Nomad Hostel: It is 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, this hostel is the perfect place to meet people from all over the world. It is great for solo travelers who want a calm and quiet place.

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 are a first-time visitor. Alternatively, you could also stay in Triana, but it is 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 will be stuck with what is left if you wait to the last minute. Book early to get the best prices, especially if your intend to be in Seville during high season.
- The 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 are looking for in terms of price, location and perks, and you will end up making the right choice.
