The hostel is comfortable and its key feature is that is close to the cathedral so in seville is almost everywhere. The people at the hostel are so helpful and kind I loved my time there. You have a full bathroom and shared showers and bathrooms so you'll have everything you need. Just at the outside from the hostel there... More

I stayed just one night, and I don't think I would keep in there for a lot more. Only 4 showers for the whole hostel, and 3 toilets. The internet dosn't work it at night and the staff wasn't very helpful. In the bed above me, there was a blood stain. The only good thing is that it's very close... More

Located on a quiet cafe-lined street, near to the plaza Neuva tram station, I missed it the first time I walked by, and was confused about the elevator at first (there's no sign, but it's on the 2nd floor!). I loved it for its quiet atmosphere, fresh and clean accommodation, and friendly staff.

loved this place but I had to go with a friend's personal recommendation. Nice cozy hostel located on a street with lots of tapas bars. Super friendly staff, although 11-1300 they may be busy because only one person is doing everything. Nice conversations on a personal level with the main receptionist. If there is one thing they could use it... More

First of all, I give only 4 of 5 points because there was no breakfast, although it was one of the services included in the price according to The Architect's website. It was very disappointing, because this was one of the reasons we booked this hostel in the first place. Nevertheless, we enjoyed our stay and got nice and clean... More

The staff was very helpful even when there was a mix-up with the reserve, and very friendly, a comfortable place to be. The bathroom is shared among the rooms if that's not an issue for you, you'll find it is a nice hub for your stay in Seville very near to the City Hall and the Cathedral.

This modern and clean hostel is located right smack in the center of Seville, a few steps away from the Cathedral. The room is furnished with Ikea furnitures - clean, comfortable and cozy. The bathroom is spotless! I would definitely stay here again should I return to Seville.

I have to bear in mind the price they charge for a stay here and write in an appropriate manner to that. Therefore I have to say that this is a great hostel, its clean, central and the staff are fantastic. The free breakfast (although I only partook in juice and coffee) only enhances the value of what you get... More

This is a great little hostel located right in the center of Seville. We stayed here one night on either end of a trip to Morocco, and had a great time! The staff is very helpful, and gave us INCREDIBLE recommendations for restaurants and tapas bars in Sevilla. Only complaint was that the room was a little hot at night,... More

“Avoid the "Aalto" 4-bed room, which is right behind the reception desk, as one of the windows does not close correctly. I complained about the noise and the receptionist promptly moved me to the adjacent room.”
