What about cheapest hostels in Seville?

You can find cheaper places in Seville.

Be aware that in Spain you can find many “illegal hostels” (hostels with no license) that offers very cheap prices.

We think, it’s not worth it to go with the cheapest hostel out there.

Why?

The difference is usually 1-2€ ($1-2) per night, and a lot of amenities are not included. This can be breakfast or linen.

However, if you are traveling on a shoe-string budget and you wanna save every penny, there are ways to find the cheapest places in Seville.

  1. Open Hostelworld with full list of budget places to stay in Seville
  2. Order the listing by price

Simple as that.

Make sure you use then the other filters and rank per price. Also keep a close eye on the ratings, especially the “extreme ratings”. Meaning, the best and worst.

These ratings can give great insight on what to expect.

Make sure you read our guide how to book hostels on Hostelworld.

Best Hostels in Seville for Solo Travellers?

What is the serious, best hostel in Seville for solo-travellers?

Depending on your travel mood, I would recommend you the following places to stay in Seville:

If you want to meet people, mingle and join activities, go to La Banda Rooftop Hostel.

The ambience and the vibes will make you have a great time in Seville and you won’t get bored. They do offer many activities.

In case you want a more relaxed vibe, but still have the chance to meet other travellers, go to The Nomad Hostel.

It is a chill hostel which also offers activities and even some concerts, but they do not have a fixed schedule for them.

7 Tips and Things to know before you go to Sevilla

Alright, you have found your best place to stay in Seville. However, do not run away just yet. We have a few things to share.

Are you tired of tourist guides?

Then this is for you. We have been now many times in Seville, and thanks to so many friends there, we enjoyed a local Sevilla. And here it is: We are proud to share with you our best 5 local tips for Seville and 2 things you should know and prepare.

Tapas, Andalusian culture, Flamenco – what’s not to love about Seville? We simply enjoy our time in Sevilla, when we see the impressive Giralda watching over the city, listen to all the colorful legends, and eat like there is no tomorrow!

1. Book your Alcazar Ticket in Advance

If you want to visit The Alcázar, the stunning palace in Seville (which became even more famous after Game of Thrones) I do totally recommend you to book your tickets in advance.

It is one of the main attractions in Seville. Go as early as possible to avoid long queues.

And of course, the world famous Games Of Thrones was filmed here too. For sure you will recognize many places!

Last time I joined this tour which combines visiting the Cathedral, the Alcázar and La Giralda and found it very informative and well organized. If you have little time in the city, join them.

2. Seville in Summer

If you are like me, you want to travel to Andalusia in Summer. Great idea so far. Only problem is it is SUPER HOT!

You can easily get 45 degrees in the shadow. Burning! If you come to Seville in Summer, make sure you drink a lot and plan a trip to the beaches in the area. I especially love the area around Cadiz.

Or even better, hop over directly to Malaga for the beach or Portugals Algarve in the South.

My personal favorite best time to visit Seville is March and April.

3. Delicious Tapas: Casa Paco

Fancy sea food and tapas?

Find plenty of great restaurants in the street “Plaza de la Alameda de Hércules”.

We recommend you the Tapas place called “Casa Paco” for a local price – order especially the tortilla, you will love it!

In case Casa Paco should be full, there are many other tapas restaurants next to it.

As this area is more a local area, away from the main tourist attractions, you will find some great tapas restaurant for sure!

Address: Alameda de Hércules 23, Sevilla

4. Alternative Neighborhood Alameda de Hércules

This is the local place to get food and drinks for local prices, and a vibrant nightlife.

If you fancy some drinks during the night, this is your place to be!

Also, during the day you will see many families with their children playing at this street and square. Lots of creatives come here as well to entertain and perform their art.

Address: Alameda de Hércules, Sevilla

5. Nightlife & Sunset: Drink at the river bench of Guadalquivir

When crossing the river coming from The Nomad Hostels side, there are plenty of bars and cafés right at the rivers bench. Sit down, have a drink, and enjoy.

And hey, Columbus left Seville from here to “discover” America. It is also a beautiful spot to enjoy the sunset along with a Sangria!

Address: River bench of Guadalquivir in Sevilla

6. Beauty: Plaza Espanya

This is by far the most amazing square in Sevilla.

You may have heard of it already, and it’s quite touristy, we admit that! However, walk around and have a look at all the different styled benches named after cities of Spain.

There is also a park around the square inviting you for a walk. You will find this square in many movies e.g. Star Wars.

As mentioned, it’s quite touristy.

But it’s the one thing you should not miss plus the most tourists miss the green park behind the square!

Address: Plaza de Espanya, Sevilla

7. Sweet: Confiteria La Campana

Be careful with this place, otherwise you will eat ALL the sweets and cakes around. Super yummy to combine them with coffee or hot chocolate.

Address: Calle Sierpes, 13, 41002 Sevilla

Flights to Seville?

Seville has many flight connections around Europe and Spain.

There are many low-cost airlines that fly to Seville airport. If you book your flight ahead of time, you can find real bargains. I flew in once from Barcelona for only 25€ round trip.

That being said, most people actually fly into Spain through Madrid or Barcelona. Inside of Spain, you can perfectly travel by taking a bus or train.

We enjoy Kiwi.com to find cheap flights all over Europe.

This new website has super cool features like a so-called radius search. Just draw a circle over Europe and find the cheapest rates for the area.
