Seville: home to bullfighting, flamenco, and Don Juan – the man famous for stealing the hearts of women across Europe. This charming Andalusian city is filled with Mudajar (Moorish in style) architecture and tapas bars on every corner. It was important for me to be within walking distance to all of the main sights, so we decided to stay at Oasis Backpackers Palace Seville in the historic city center. 5FT Tip: Parking in the Old Town is a bit tricky. Rather than scouring for a parking spot on the street for hours, park in the parking garage in Plaza de Armas.
Set in a grand palace from the 19th century, Oasis Backpackers Palace is fantastic. From the common areas to the rooms to the location and activities offered, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better hostel than this in Seville.
Oasis Backpackers Palace offers double rooms, and dorm rooms from four beds to fourteen. Each room has ensuite bathrooms, which is quite a luxury for a backpackers! The beds were comfortable and the rooms very spacious too. They even succeeded in making a fourteen bed dorm look roomy when I took a peak in!
Breakfast at Oasis Backpackers Palace is, hands down, the best breakfast I’ve had at a hostel. Located in the upstairs terrace bar, breakfast is offered from 8am-10am for 2.50 euros; we had a delicious meal of eggs with bacon and a latte.
They also offered incredibly priced meals throughout the day. Chicken curry for three and a half euros? Yes please! All you could eat brunch on for eight euros on the weekend? Surely!
There is a nice-sized, fully equipped kitchen for your use, a travel desk to book your travel around Seville and the rest of Spain, free high-speed WiFi, and plenty of hot water during your showers!
There are also big lockers located under each bed, a pool on the rooftop, and a fully-stocked bar should you be thirsty. The common area is spacious with ample computers, and each floor is decked out with inspiring travel quotes.
Everything is within walking distance from Oasis Backpackers Palace; I never once used public transportation in my three days in Seville. For a quick but thorough experience in Seville, I recommended checking out the Cathedral, La Giralda, the Alcázar, and Plaza de España, which is one of my favorite plazas in Europe. Pancho Tours offers a great Free Walking Tour that meets directly in the lobby of Oasis Backpackers Palace. How convenient!
Seville is a place not to be missed while exploring Spain. Take in the culture, soak up the sun, and sleep well at Oasis Backpackers Palace.
