I stayed here for two nights at the beginning of my week's holiday, travelling alone to Seville. I'm 22 years old, single and female, but always felt safe in this hostel and in Seville in general.
The receptionist was friendly and gave me a tour of the building, answering any questions I had along the way. They rent out towels, which is very handy, and there are lockable drawers in each dorm room to keep items safe - I used this and had no problems with it. It requires a padlock, and this can be bought (or rented, I'm not sure), if necessary.
A self-service breakfast was available from 8.30-10.30 - toast, jam, butter, chocolate spread, coffee, various teas, juice, croissants. Good enough to get you going in the morning, and it's free.
The bathrooms are separate from each room and are cleaned regularly.
There is a main door to the building, but also an inner gate which can only be opened from the inside, for added security, and there was always an employee nearby (within hearing distance of the doorbell) to come and open it.
One problem was with the computers as there were three but the keyboards of two were faulty (though still usable). It would be good if they fixed these as many people staying there were travelling for quite a while, or very far from home, so needed to keep in touch with friends and family - it didn't bother me too much because I was on such a short holiday.
I had a very comfortable stay here and everyone was friendly and welcoming. The hostel was easy to find, and I would recommend it to anyone.
