Welcome to the "Garden Backpacker", and thank you for visiting our site.

Our new hostel was opened in October last year, we have thought about the best location for you. Located in the historic centre of downtown "one step away from the city centre" which fulfills your main requirements to find anything you need.

We have chosen a real "Seville house" for our hostel. This Hostel is quiet in its interior, well equipped with a wide and comfortable lounge to watch TV, play Table Games, Darts, Karaoke and Wii or if you like to read something we have a library where you can read or exchange books. We are especially proud of our beautiful GARDEN, we are the only Hostel in Seville which has one, where you can enjoy your breakfast, lunch and dinner or just to have a rest after your busy day walking around.

We are in the heart of Seville, near to "Barrio de Santa Cruz", close to the famous "Sierpes" street, just a step away from the Cathedral, "El Alcázar" (Fortress), Shopping centres, Flamenco shows, bars, restaurants, pubs...Everything just a few minutes walking.
From the hostel you have perfect access to buses and taxi, to the Airport, to the Bus and Train Stations, as well to Underground and Tram.

Once you get here, you just have to choose the right way to explore the city, as we offer different activities and ways to do so.
Making your getting around easier we provide a rental BIKE service for a very cheap price!
You prefer walking? Enjoy the daily free walking tour around the city where our guides tell you everything about its history and its countless legends... We also organize a tapas tour to meet other people from the hostel and to taste the typical Andalusian food and drinks ...and why not? You can end up join the pub crawl for a crazy night out and to experience sevillians night- and street life.

Friday is the Paella's Day which takes place in our cosy Garden....followed by bike-tours, more cooking, etc.!

Breakfast is included in the price, consisting of coffee, herbal teas, juices, toasts, cereals, homemade jam… to start your day full of energy. We also have free coffee and tea for the whole day and, according to the day, the best SANGRIA ever (for free!)

If you have dirty clothes don't worry, we have a laundry service and for all of you who tend to forget stuff at home like hairdryer, earplugs, etc. we provide it to borrow and/or rent in the hostel.

We won't say that we are the best, but doubtless we'll try hard to make you believe it.

We hope to see you soon in our hostel.
Thank you very much.
Prices are per person per night.
