Really close to all the major atractions of the city, you can walk anywhere. Me and my girlfriend stayed for 2 nights, the staff was ok and helped us with whatever we needed. And they have free breakfast and a nice rooftop! I recomend this hostel.

I chose this hostel because of price and location. When I arrived I was told that my reservation is not valid that I made via hotels.com, because of some credit card details (funny enough I received a conf email from them just 4 days befor my arrival that everything is fine with my res). Ok thats not their fault I...

I stayed at Picasso's for 2 nights. Check in was fine and I was placed in a room that was too small for 4 beds. The bathroom was almost impossible to shower in due to the size. I was severely bitten on the first night by bed bugs, face legs and arms. I informed the staff of what happened and...

My wife and I recently stayed here on two different visits to Sevilla. If you are visiting Sevilla for the first time, and you choose to stay here, I recommend either traveling by taxi or asking questions to the bus driver. We traveled from the bus station, and we got lost around the Plaza de España area. Once we learned...

Sure young people will stay here, and during the summer, but for us, a mature couple and in November, the one night stay was a mistake. Room was cold as a jail, and not even bigger... "Breakfast", yes you can call it as breakfast; coffee, bread etc. served in very modest way. What else to say than go there in...

We spent 3 nights at Picasso. Breakfast was included if you consider a piece of toast with dirty looking butter breakfast. The staff acted annoyed when asked about the juice that's included. There was no sign of soap to wash dishes, when we asked for some, we were told the dishes were clean. We watch guest rinse their used dishes...

I arrived in Seville May 2012 after a tour of Morocco. I didn't have reservations and needed something quick and inexpensive. I knocked on several hostels, all were full. This one turned out to have room. the lobby looked nice. Open and bright with lots of plants and painted bright green and white. It seemed cheerful. My thought was to...

Without meaning to sound harsh, this is one of the worst hostels we have stayed in. We had a twin room. The rooms were clean, but basic and outdated. We had a ensuite which was little more than a converted cupboard; there was just enough room for one person to stand in it sideways. The shower was so small, you...
