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.
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.
- Open Hostelworld with full list of budget places to stay in Seville
- 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.

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.

Things to know before you go
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.
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.
Of course, you should take advantage of your stay in Seville and eat as many tapas as you can.
They are simply delicious! And Seville is one of the most authentic places in Spain to enjoy them.
You can find our favorite Tapas bars in our guide to hidden gems in Seville.
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.
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.
We enjoy Kiwi.com to find cheap flights all over Europe.
