“A good budget option”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 August 2008

The hostal is on a quite street not far from all the fun. There are lots of restaurants and bars just steps away. It is small, with a nice atmosphere. The staff are friendly and even speak English, which you don't find often in Spain. Our double room was smallish but sufficient, the bathroom was pretty basic but OK, and there was a cute tiny balcony with a typical Sevillian forged grille. On the whole, a good bargain for the price we paid on the verge of Semana Santa. Oh, and the city is absolutely fantastic!

I stayed here in october 2006. I went to Spain for a long weekend with 4 other girls from London and we chose this hostel because of the convenience of its location. It is a matter of minutes to walk round the corner to the main drag of bars and restaurants in the evening, which was so nice! The hostel is in a lovely old building and each room was small, clean, well decorated and had a lovely, new, very clean ensuite bathroom. We found staying there an absolute pleasure and I would definitely stay there again if I return to Sevilla. The price was very good and the staff were very friendly Latin Americans.

Do not confuse this place with the San Francisco HOTEL. This is a hostal. It is situated on a tiny street off of Av Menendez Pelayo. Our driver didn't know where it was and his GPS took us to the wrong place. If you take a taxi, make sure they get there by Av Menendez Pelayo, not the little streets. It is at the north of the city, but less than a 10 minute walk to the Cathedral and another 5 to the river.

The hosts were very nice and had tickets for all the major tourist stuff (tourist bus, flamenco show...). If you want an overview of the city, the tourist bus will give you that in about 1 hour, we took it because we were tired and didn't have much time, but if you have 2 days or more, don't bother. The flamenco show was nice.

The room was very clean, but tight, like in most hostals. The bathroom was on the bigger side. The downsides: you have to ring the hosts to get in, and we could tell we woke them up, when we came in late, so we felt a little uncomfortable, and there is no elevator.

Overall, a very nice stay. Recommended for budget travelers.
