Only stayed here for a night but it seemed pretty good. In a good location although we found it nearly impossible to find. Rooms and bathrooms where clean staff nice and helpful. Our room was on the street so it was really loud probably the only downside.

It is in the middle of old town, moreover, in very safe location following reasons – Only dental clinic shares the building except the hostel. Also the street on the hostel,...

Myself and 8 friends arrived in Seville by bus. The Architect was within walking distance and very close to the cathedral. Upon arriving, we were confused by the building - be sure to take the elevator up to the hostel level! The front desk staff was very nice and helpful. They led us to our room and had great advice...

Me and my family stayed at "The Architect" end of December 2012 for three days. We are from Sweden and have an apartment at Costa del Sol, so we wanted to take the chance and visit Sevilla for a few days. This hostel is very cheap, but you get very good value for money. The rooms are a bit small...

I stayed two nights in the hostel. I paid for a 4-bed room which was I believe 17 euros (the cheaper 8-bed rooms were all full), but I was solo in the room the whole time.

“Avoid the "Aalto" 4-bed room, which is right behind the reception desk, as one of the windows does not close correctly. I complained about the noise and the receptionist promptly moved me to the adjacent room.”
