Hey guys! Looking for a place in Seville to chill out and make new friends? This is the right place for you. We’re travellers like you – we love our job and we know exactly what you’re looking for. We promise we will do our best to make your stay a unique experience.

We have four-, six- and eight-bed mixed dorms as well as a twin private rooms. There are five bathrooms.

Our great common areas include our sunny rooftop terrace, our living room, a big and fully equipped kitchen and, of course, the lovely garden.

The nights in the garden start at 8.30, when our guests gather together to have free sangria and try our delicious tapas or the homemade paella. Depending on the night you will join the drinking games or the jam session with local musicians. Then if you decide to go out and get to know Seville's nightlife, our pub crawl is a must, and you can start the night with cheap mojitos at our bar. In the garden you can chill out or just start your party before going out and get into the crazy Spanish fiesta You can chill out and start your party at the same time!

Our professional, multilingual staff are like a big family; we’ll treat you like one of us, with great recommendations and all the info you might need. Seville is one of the most charming cities in Spain and we help you you choose how to explore it, whether with one of our walking tours or by renting one of our bikes.

We’re located in the very centre of the city, three minutes’ walk from the Roman ruins and the so-called 'mushrooms' (Metropol Parasol), and 10 minutes’ walk from the cathedral and the Alcazar. Due to all the narrow streets of the Old Town (where we’re located) it's really easy to get lost – but don't worry, we provide all kind of maps and information. We don't want you to get lost!

We think that travelling is not just sightseeing, taking pictures and sleeping in a nice bed. We believe that the people that you meet during your trip make all the difference; for this reason, thanks to the huge common areas, the wide range of activities and a warm atmosphere, making new friends at our hostel comes naturally.

This is a place where young travellers meet each others, plan their trip, explore the city and go out together...so if you’re travelling alone, don't worry – you’ll feel totally at home!

We promise you will never want to leave our homey hostel!
