Seville

While Seville might not draw the same crowds as Madrid or Barcelona, this southern Spanish city is still a must-visit destination for any Spain travel itinerary. And luckily for you, Seville actually some some excellent hostels at decent prices. As an added bonus, many hostels have rooftop swimming pools to help guests escape from the crazy hot summer temperatures. In this guide we’ll show you find the best hostels in Seville that matches your travel style and budget.  

Seville Hostels: Quick Overview

Seville has around 20 hostels and most of them are very well-rated so you shouldn’t have much of an issue finding somewhere to sleep. However, during Seville’s busy season (April-June) prices can get a little high but then are much more reasonable the rest of the year — remember, the middle of summer is Seville’s low season. So expect to pat at least €20-€40/night in the busy season and €18-€26/night the rest of the year.

Furthermore, Seville has quite a few festivals during the spring so hostel prices skyrocket during those times. 

Check Hostelworld to get prices for your exact dates.

More Info About Hostels in Seville

  • Book Early For Best Prices: The best hostels in Seville do sell out quickly so you’ll be stuck with less desirable if you wait to the last minute — especially in the busy season. 
  • Dorm Room Bed Configuration: Expect hostel dorm rooms to have anywhere from 4 to 12+ beds. In general, the cheapest beds are in the rooms with the most beds.  
  • Private Rooms: Most hostels will have a couple of private rooms. These can be for two people (either a single bed or two beds) but some private rooms have three-five beds (for groups traveling together). Private rooms are a little expensive but it’s a nice option if you want a little more privacy. 
  • Female-Only Dorms: Most hostels have at-least one female-only dorm room. 
  • Hostel Location: Brussels does have a few rough spots so be sure to read the reviews to make sure your hostel is located in a neighborhood that you’ll feel comfortable staying in.
  • Hostel Vibes: Seville is a city with solid nightlife so you’ll find a handful of party hostels as well as more laidback places. So make sure your travel style matches up with the hostel’s vibe. 
  • Look For Extras: Some hostels offer free breakfast, some have self-catering kitchens, some organize walking tours or other events, etc. These little extra things can truly add to the overall experience so keep those in mind when booking. 
  • Check-In Times and Cleaning Times: Most hostels have late check-in times (around 2 p.m. – 4 p.m.) but nearly all will let you store your bags if you arrive before check-in.

The Best Hostels in Seville: Our Top Picks

Hostels in Seville

So what separates the good hostels from the great hostels? It’s a few big things and a bunch of little things. Below is the criteria that we use to rank and judge which hostels we stay in.  

How We Rank Hostels:

  • Overall Quality: We try taking a holistic look at the hostel to see the positives and negatives. Our goal is to find amazing hostels that are still affordable.
  • Location: We point out if the hostels are in a good part of town and near the highlights. 
  • Price: We try to filter out the super expensive hostels to help find the best price to quality ratio.
  • Vibe/Atmosphere: Every hostel has a personality. Some are party hostels and some are quiet. We try to note the atmosphere so you can find a place to stay that matches your travel style.
  • Past Guest Reviews: Every guest has a different experience so we look at the good and the bad. We suggest you take a few minutes to read prior reviews.

We encourage you to check out Hostelworld to do a bit of searching for yourself.

La Banda Rooftop Hostel is not only one of the best hostels in Seville, but it also has stunning views of the cathedral from its rooftop terrace (complete with a solid bar). This is a cool hostel with an actual “backpackers” vibe (i.e. it doesn’t feel like a corporate chain that are becoming all too common these days). 

They put on a ton of events to keep the place social and lively like live flamenco shows, bar crawls, live DJs, and more. The hostel also has an excellent self-catering kitchen and the staff does a great job of keeping the hostel clean.
