More of a hotel feel than a hostel
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!
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).
