4. 5 Secret tips to Sevilla
The Nomad Hostel in Seville is truly a 5 Star Hostel, recommended for solo-travelers, couples and families alike. Opened in August 2014, the Nomad Hostel captured the hearts of travelers and backpackers right away. The accommodation offers a warm social environment to slow down, have a rest, and connect with other travelers. If you’d like, you can get some drinks at the hostel bar, and join the hostel events or the free tour around the Andalusian capital.
And speaking of being social, The Nomad Hostel also organizes different events at their roof top terrace. This charming and homely 5 Star Hostel in Seville is a great choice to actively support the “Slow Travel Movement”, and their staff love to pay attention to creating an eco-friendly environment.
Let’s check out why this Sevilla Hostel is awarded with 5 Stars.
The Nomad Hostel in Seville is a 5 Star Hostel because …
1. Sustainable - Non-Toxic, and Green Guidelines
The Nomad Hostel has its own green guidelines to ensure that travelers are staying in safe, non-toxic and energy-efficient accommodation. This guide includes non-toxic cleaning agents, laundry detergent, 100% organic sheets and towels, and all bunk beds are hand-made (and fair trade!). The lighting throughout the building is completely energy-efficient.
For coffee-lovers, the Nomad team only serves organic, free trade coffee at the bar. Big plus: there are also non-disposable dishes and utensils. The trash in the kitchen is separated, so you can easily contribute to the eco-friendly practices yourself. You can see their philosophy written on the kitchen wall above the sink – “a nomad leaves no trace” – as a reminder to each traveller to do their bit.
As you can see, Nomad Hostel Sevilla is a fully green hostel! Last but not least, the Nomad Hostel is managed by local Sevillanos - another big sustainable factor. There are also some local stars at the breakfast bar– they have local Sevilla orange marmalade, fresh local tomatoes, and organic olive oil. Yum!
2. Wooden Design and Travel Accessories
The wooden design all over the building goes perfectly with cozy sofas and beds decorated with dozens of pillows. No TV, plenty of travel books, and travel accessories like small suitcases let you feel the passion for travel permeating this hostel. Nobody could ever want to watch TV here with the decorations keeping you in your travelling mood rather than becoming an unsociable TV zombie.
The living room is ideal for hanging out and meeting fellow travelers. There are two large tables with lots of chairs and a cool hangout section of couches and squashy chairs set against a backdrop of travel photographs and an abstract world map. Or if you’d rather go out onto the deck, pull up one of the wooden chairs to a table and enjoy the Sevillian sunshine.
3. Andalusian Coziness - Unique
Have you ever heard about the Andalusian lifestyle? The Nomad Hostel is a wonderful reflection of the Sevillian way of life: slow, cozy, and heartwarming! With the three common areas of the interior terrace, the chill-out lounge, and the rooftop terrace, this 5 Star Hostel is the perfect place to meet people of all ages.
Whether you’ll be cooking up a local speciality in the kitchen with your hostel mates, relaxing in the common area, or taking in the sun on the terraces, there are plenty of places to enjoy the hostel and your fellow hostel-goers. Don’t forget to head up to the massive rooftop terrace, where there’s always something going on. Its walls are decorated with buckets of flowers; see if you can spot similar decorations out in Sevilla’s historic neighborhoods!
When it’s time to go to bed, you won’t be finding your typical lumpy hostel bed. No, these hand-made, fair-trade bunk beds are super comfy, from the mattresses to the bedding. Each bed also has its own small shelf with an individual reading light and outlet, so you won’t have to race to be able to charge your phone.
4. Meet open-minded travelers of all ages
The common areas are inviting and a great place to meet fellow travelers. Whether you have a cocktail at the rooftop terrace, or hang out in the lounge next to the interior terrace – you’ll have lots of opportunities to meet and connect with new people, whether it’s your fellow hostel-goers or the local staff.
Actually, there are so many great places to kick back in relax in the hostel that you may be tempted to spend more time here rather than going out and seeing the city. And speaking of seeing the city…
5. Get 100% local tips - just ask the Staff
The owners and their team are always around the hostel, joining in on events, giving you the best tips for Seville. When you have a drink with them at one of the events, just ask them for the best tapas restaurant in Seville or whatever you need and want to know about Seville. They'll know the best answer for sure.
They have handy maps on hand and are more than happy to point out the best of the city’s sights, eats, and drinks. And they’re not just telling you a typical list of tourist traps; they’ll genuinely share their own personal favorites with you. The staff love their city and hope that you will too.
