Trotamundos Youth Hostel
Ranked #141 of 160 Speciality Lodging in Seville
Reviewed 18 August 2014

We're 3 italian girls travelling in Spain.
We spent 3 days in the hostel and it's nice, especially our room was comfortable with the air conditioned. The hostel has a good position (a few minutes to get to the centre on foot).
The kitchen it's not so cleaned and there aren't many dishes, pots and table with chairs to have meal for all guests.
The staff was very kind with us and there are free guided tour of the city for the guests.

-----------> FOR GIRLS (who travel without boys in the group) this hostel is not so safe. WE HAVE A REALLY BAD EXPERIENCE WITH AN AGGRESSIVE RUDE GUY WHO LIVES IN TROTAMUNDOS HOSTEL.

We don't know who he was, maybe a member of the staff or maybe the owner. The WORST time it was a night, when he came in the common room, where me and my female friends were, and he starting shouting to us and threatening us. He was very drunk, Apparently he was angry just because we were italian.
We were so scared that the day after when we left the hostel, we haven't courage to tell the story to the other member of the staff because the violent boy was listening to us.


REALLY SORRY for our bad review, but we can't recommend Trotamundos for italian peolple, especially girls,

Hola, sentimos muchisimo el incidente que tuvisteis en nuestra casa. Pero nos gustaria aclarar que la persona a la que os referis era un cliente igual que vosotras, aunque es cierto que llevaba varios dias alojado y hasta ese momento no causo ningun problema. Jamas hemos tenido otro caso igual y al tener conocimiento de lo ocurrido no por vosotras si no por otra persona inmediatamente le expulsamos de nuestras instalaciones, por que precisamente tenemos especial cuidado en que las chicas se sientan comodas con nosotros ya que la mayoria de nuestros huespedes son mujeres. Nos habria gustado que hablarais con nuestro personal y habriamos actuado inmediatamente ademas de darnos la oportunidad de disculparnos personalmente en vez de por correo, repito que cuidamos de forma muy especial a las chicas que nos visitan. Sin otro particular os reiteramos nuestras disculpas y si volveis alguna vez por Sevilla nos encantaria contar con vuestra presencia y desgraviaros de alguna forma. Un saludo muy cariñoso. TROTAMUNDOS

we were in Malaga for a week and wanted to go see Seville so I booked a hostel to save money. My previous experience with dorms has only been in Germany and those were brilliant so I was expecting the same...We were lucky to get a family room. However the washrooms and the toilets were icky but I guess its my mistake to expect better
Its wonderfully located though - a walk from the train station , in the center of a fun, bustling market, very close to the Cathedral and the Alcazar and I enjoyed a morning run around these historic places. So if you are traveling without a family this is a decent value for money option

Room Tip: its a dorm, you'll get what you get just dont expect dorms like the ones in Germany

A safe place to stay for our first night, in a very good location. The member of staff was friendly and helpful, the breakfast was ok, and it was good to have lockers in the rooms. The bathroom was manageable, though could have done with more cubicles and better drainage. Overall it was fine, but at €36 per night plus €1 for a towel, I'm not sure it was great value for what it was.

Great place, cheapest I found, basic breakfast, great location and easy to find. Helpful staff (not all of them speak English). Reasonably clean. The kitchen lacks some proper things to make food, and not so well organised.

This was my first time alone in a hostel staying in a room with other people, I was very nervous because I was always a person that was not fond of the idea of sleeping in a room with strangers, but it was a great experience because of how great the hostel was.
When you first enter it smells like a soap fragrance, it is extremely clean and the service was excellent. The gate is opened by a code they give you so you can enter and exit as you please at any hour, they gave me a map and told me about Pancho Tours (free walking tours, I did 3 of them and it was amazing! Take the morning tour with Sebastian!).
I was in a room with 6 other girls and we each had our own locker. The bathroom was on the same floor and was cleaned every day. It had 2 shower and 2 sinks and a toilet. There was a separate room for just a toilet on the other side of the floor. They do not provide soap so bring a bar to wash your hands.
Everyone there was super nice, they provide breakfast as well. You get toast and jam, honey, butter and crackers and you make your own coffee, cereal as well and milk. It isn't a 5 star breakfast but when you are on a budget it is all you need to keep yourself going for the morning as you walk Sevilla in the dying heat.
Everyone helped me navigate and figure out what I should do with only 2 days in Sevilla. The staff are excellent and so welcoming. I recommend it to anyone backpacking. I wish them much success and if I ever go back to Sevilla while backpacking I will come back and stay here!

The hostel was just average for me. Stayed here for two nights. I don't know where the big and spacious rooms are but it is not Room #10. I found the room was actually quite stuffy, just average size, but kept clean. The nice thing about the room is having airconditioning. It can get really hot in Seville during the afternoon so going back to the hostel for some afternoon siesta in a AC room is essential. Warning: there is no lift, so prepare to haul your luggage in the 2nd floor using the stairs. I also heard the footsteps and slamming dorms from the other rooms during the night. Well, it is still a dorm.

The location is absolutely excellent. Near the Cathedral, the river side and lots of restaurants, ATMs nearby. The staff was just so-so, but they helped me out.

The breakfast served was quite comprehensive: bread, assorted jams, cereal, oatmeal/muesli, and coffee. The kitchen and the fridge was handy too, you can store and cook your own food.

Join the terrific walking tours! The morning tour is different from the sunset tour. Do both!

This place is just about ok. I like the location of this hostel very much as it is in the centre. Apart from that, the reception is not 24 hours, when i checked inn, the staff seemed in a hurry, as if i was interrupting something that he was doing.

Rooms are big and clean but gloomy.

I would probably recommend this place only for the price and location.
