The location of the hostel is absolutely wonderful. Located right in the city center, very nearby everything you have to visit when traveling to Seville. It's easy to access from the airport with a bus, staff gladly helps you out in case of any problems or if you have any questions. But if you prefer a taxi, there are taxis waiting not too far of a walk from the hostel. The neighborhood is safe and lovely to walk around in. The hostel is located in a one-way street so parking might be a bit more difficult to find. It's bit of a hidden gem to find at first, but there's a clear "La Banda" sign on the outside. Security is perfect since you have to buzz yourself in, before one of the staff members can open the door.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The dorms are nice and although some of them are a bit small, there is (more than) enough space to move around in. Some dorms have bathrooms connected to the dorms, others don't but this is not an issue. There are lockers available, you do have to bring your own lock. The shower works perfectly fine. The rooms and bathrooms are cleaned daily. You can borrow towels from the reception, for free. Wifi is free and works, however you might have to be a bit patient at times.
There's a kitchen upstairs, a rooftop where they serve meals every evening, with the prettiest view over Seville, for only a few euros and there's a common area you walk in as soon as you enter the hostel. The common area is perfect to meet other backpackers, as well as the rooftop pool. Breakfast is served every day, for free, in the downstairs common area. It's a perfect hostel for solo-travelers since you will meet people. They also organize free city-trips, fun bar crawls and more. There's space to keep your luggage even after you have checked out. There are more than enough outlets to be found both in the common area downstairs as well as in the rooms. Wifi works perfectly fine in the common space.
This hostel is absolutely wonderful and deserves all the nice reviews it's getting. The staff is kind and helpful, it's a clean and safe place. There are tons of activities organized in the hostel and you will get plenty of chances to meet new people. If you're looking for a cheap, lovely, clean & fun place to stay at while visiting one of Spain's most beautiful cities, look no further!
