I have no doubt that Oasis Backpackers Palace Hostel Sevilla is the best hostel in the world. I might be exaggerating a little bit but I couldn’t imagine a better hostel than this. With high ceilings and towering columns, the hostel is like no other I’ve stayed in before. Upon arrival, it felt like I just entered a villa or a mansion with ancient history.
Let me start from the top to the ground floor.
Oasis Backpackers Palace Hostel Sevilla is the only hostel that has a swimming pool. From here, you can feast on the panoramic view of the city.
The big patio is a multi-purpose area. It can be a sundeck, a bar, a dining room and a rendezvous to meet other travellers.
And in the morning, it turns into a yoga studio.
Next to the patio is the restaurant.
Breakfast is also served but it’s not free.
They have a bar, too.
Going down, you can either take an elevator or thread on the grand staircase.
The hostel has a spacious dining room.
And spacious living room on each floor.
The beds are sturdy and don’t make a squeaky sound. The mattress is good, too.
It has a lot of spaces where you can be alone or be with a group.
And oh yeah, they have a bathroom with this comfy seat outside to sit and wait.
The staff is awesome and they can answer everything you want to know about the ins and outs of Sevilla. They both have free and paid activities for you to enjoy. Don’t even miss the pub crawl. 😉
Oasis Backpackers Palace Hostel Sevilla is downtown and you can walk to the city’s shopping district. Cathedral de Sevillais also nearby. The tram is just less than 5 minutes walk.
Cleanliness and Safety
It’s pretty clean and safety is their utmost concern. You’ll be given a magnetic card to get in your room and the lockers are under your bed. The bathroom and shower area is clean, too. The main gate is secured. You can’t get in without ringing the bell or using your card.
The only negative thing I experienced here is not about the hostel itself. I was in a room with rowdy, loud Americans who came home at 4 in the morning. They turned on the lights and talked like no one was sleeping around. The Swiss guy told them to tune down their voices and they just laughed him off. Then, a Spanish girl scowled them in a foreign language and they were baffled. They apologized and turned the lights off. The next morning, I found the duo sleeping in the living room. 😀
