Pros -- Great free coffee (espresso style!). Very clean, Very caring staff, Good location, spacious rooms. Hotel not hostel feel. Good hot water & water pressure in shower (cubicle small). Fresh bread at breakfast with cheese, ham, jam, cereal, orange juice. Good rate for a single room from hostel booking website for what is more of a hotel than a hostel -- they are double/twin rooms actually with loads of space. Great spacious building. Cons -- Sound REALLY carries and you WILL need ear plugs. The day receptionist can seem really rude when she is busy (although she is just very conscientious actually). Windows don't close well and can be cold (although the heaters work well and there are extra blankets in the wardrobes). Breakfast is quite hectic and not many places to sit (fine if you are not in a hurry as it does get less busy).

Like the stay but there was a lot of noise day and night.
One of my favourites
Skeptical going in, because had heard mixed reviews. Note that my review applies to the double room en-suite. We loved this hostel! One of our favourites in two years of European travel. The thing that is preventing a five-star rating is that the bathroom was falling apart a bit -- the shower door fell off. But it wasn't a huge deal. Free cappuccinos, espressos, hot chocolates, free phone home (long distance!), free internet, breakfast included, nice staff, awesome social rooftop terrace with hammocks -- what more can you ask for? Some may say price may be a few Euros high (not sure of other hostels in the region) but we loved our two-night stay! No regrets at all. Great location, great time, great ambiance, and the rooftop terrace was key because we met some Americans who spoke Spanish, which really allowed us to get under the skin of beautiful Seville! I would not hesitate to stay here again.
This has been the worst place we have ever been and the most expensive for what they offer! First of all, the photos on internet are not as described. The double room en-suite (supposed to be nice in the photos) was very dirty, there were hair on the floor and in the toilet, the sheets were dirty and the window was broken, so it was not possible to close it during the night. The service was absent! There were people screaming in the middle of the night and nobody said anything. We stayed there five nights and the towels were changed only twice, the second one they gave us a scratched towel -- just awful! The day after we asked the manager for an appropriate service but they didn't even enter in the room! At the end we asked for a partial refund, as we had to pay in advance, but they have not a refund policy and we were just told -- sorry! So, keep in mind our tip -- don't go!
Even though everything was more than adequate (comparatively in Spain you could do far far worse, and everything was kept as clean as possible here), that most importantly, the people were the best here. Very helpful, you know, with the intangibles. Because when your heart's into backpacking around (and everyone has bad hostel experiences -- go check out the movie for that one), what matters most are the people (hostel staff, renters, local sevillans) -- their politeness, helpfulness, guidance. Really, it would take an enormous cleaning staff to keep Suizo's hostel looking like a Trump suite, but thankfully (during my trip, it must've been) renters chipped in to keep the place just that clean. Maybe they felt like they were returning some good deed done to them. Cool place, go check it out.
I too was disappointed with this hotel. The dorms were cramped, our en-suite was out of action, yep the air conditioning was great in summer but I paid them good money to send me my memory cards which I'd left at a photo shop and I never received them. Plus one of the computers with the free internet were down which meant for hundreds of people and only one computer, there were long lines. Location and staff were good.
We stayed in May 06 and we will never stay there again. To start with, it quite expensive compared to fantastic places we stayed in in other cities. There were some minor things that on their own I would happily lived with, however added up they became a big issue. Run down room. No water pressure and intermittent hot water. Very rude staff. Very noisy and badly working air-con. What I could not live with is air-con dying on the hottest night (it was 41C during at 19:00) when everyone used it and being told by staff "have you tried to open a window?". Total lack of security. Different staff members though they day/night who didn't know who came and went. Luggage left before flight was put in a room totally out of sight of staff but with public access to anyone. The room door having been kicked in at some point and barely locked. Ants crawling around the room (a lot of ants). Sheets covered in (someone else's) blood stains. Bedbugs -- we are currently covered from neck to toe in hideous red itchy rashes. I would never stay there again -- even if they paid us!
Very unhappy customer
We've been there on 2 may 2006, during the online reservation I asked for a quiet room. But, this is what our ears registered when we wanted to sleep: at 24h30, the couple next door was talking (there was a door between our rooms, that didn't close well); at 01:30 people were talking very loud in the lobby, the night guard didn't intervene until I asked. When they finally stopped talking, the night guard started typing on his PC keyboard and we heard each keystroke, at 3 a.m., the guard caused continuous whistling paper noise; at about 6 a.m. the someone started washing coffee cups and used the coffee machine quite often, and yes, at 7a.m. other people start waking up causing noise in the tubes and cause breakfast sounds. The breakfast wasn't worth the name -- one simple, small table with four to six seats, one cup with butter another with jam and one toaster. Coffee and orange juce at will. The number of showers/WCs wasn't in a decent ratio with the number of guests. So, stay away there, or if you must be there: surely refuse rooms six and seven, they are one hundred percent next to the reception desk and the most noisy rooms we ever had. The good point: free internet access (but the PC is often occupied).
Its a ten on ten literally! All was clean, the rooms are really cheap, they clean the shower everyday, the location is wonderful!
All very good, only our towels were dirty.
Nuevo Suizo was well located and was a good value for what little we paid for it. The air conditioning was a must in the inferno that is Sville. The free breakfast was simple but a nice way to start the day and the staff were friendly. Issues with this place however are that there is no security measure to be able to walk into the dorms other than a front desk person who only pays attention half the time. There were only 6 lockers for ten beds and they made a lot of noise. Good stay overall!
Felt so safe and secure the whole time, I wish I stayed longer! Perfect location and the staff was incredibly helpful! Also all the whole building felt clean and well kept.
Staff were lovely, location was excellent and the breakfast was nice. The dorm room was not very nice. I felt like I was in a basement, no windows and crammed. Bathroom was clean but old appearing dirty. Theres definitely potential for this hostel, but I think it needs some attention
The rooms on the first floor do not require key to enter! During my stay things were stolen from locked lockers and guests lost hundreds of euros worth of cash and valuables.
Me encanto todo de aqu! La gente fue muy amable! De los recomiendo a todos que vengan a Sevilla!
An excellent hostel - booked at short notice in a 10 bed mixed dorm. Bathroom was kept clean, location was very central to the main tourist destinations in the city. Safe, convenient, relatively quiet and at a fair price.
Super cute little stay in the heart of the city. Nice little breakfast with lots of fruit. 24/7 front desk. No curtains on the beds and one room kinda leads into the other so lots of light bleed. One little bathroom for 12+ people, glad it wasn't full when we were there. Friendly staff, free coffee/tea on all the time!
Cleand and nice stuff. Nice to have breakfast and free coffe andntea all the day. Butnif you are looking for real hostel atmosfer that is not for you.
Wonderful stay, would highly recommend!
The only pro about this hostel is the location and maybe price. Inside feels very dingy, dark, and muggy. With very little windows and small rooms, this hostel felt very crowded and even had a smell. And the breakfast is very bare. I wouldnt recommend staying here.
Overal a good place to stay.
Nuevo Suizo was a great spot to stay at while visiting Sevilla for a couple of days. Check-in was easy, and our room even had a sink in it which was very convenient. Location is close, within 10-15 minutes walking distance, to the cathedral and Real Alcazar. While we did not make it for breakfast either day, the food smelled good up to the third floor where our room was located. The only downside was the noise from construction in the morning.
The staircase looks beautiful, however I cannot give any appraisal based on the quality of the accomodation. While staying a separate room, the floor was seemingly not cleaned, additionally we had a fat cockroach in our room, which could have been avoided, if the owners would invest into feromon-traps. The mattresses are too thin to sleep on, beds are similar to portable camping beds. Wifi is mostly not working, kitchen is poorly equipped. Terribly noisy neighbourhood at dawn. Earplugs are must!
The location of the hostel ist very good and there is no urban noise. We stayed one night. Sadly we had a room directly next to the corridor, so it was very loud during the night and the light of the corridor shone into the room. We barely slept, but it was mostly the fault of the other guests. Though, I would have wished, that the stuff takes care of silence and no lights in the night. For one night it was still okay and the building is beautiful.
Nice staff. Very pretty inside. Quiet. Ask about parking beforehand. Google maps took me onto a pedestrian walking street without me realising and I had to run in to ask what to do. But the staff was great and it was a great stay.
Beautiful place well-located to the main places to visit in Seville, you can walk to the Alcazar in 10 minutes. The services provided are very good and the staff very attentive, just consider it is a quiet place and people go there to rest, but if you want to spend a good time with friends their rooftop is cozy.
