Koisi Hostel Sevilla

Once the headquarters of the Saimaza coffee company, the Koisi Hostel is set in a rather impressive piece of modernist architecture. Original busy tiling, marble columns and twirly wrought iron contrast with the contemporary minimalism in the rooms, which range from private quarters to dorms (mixed and female-only). An all-day bar is also the setting for morning breakfast and evening drinks. While the location, a block from Las Setas (a striking multi-use venue, and the largest wooden structure in the world) means there are plenty of eating and drinking options on your doorstep.

A book-tower reception desk sets the tone for this utterly charming and cheerful hostel. An open-air chill-out lounge and private cinema set it apart from most, as does the funky cafe offering everything from breakfast (with great coffee) to tapas and cocktails. Private suites sleep two or four guests, and dorms up to eight, all with nifty fingerprint room access. The hostel is in the Santa Cruz district, so many of the best city sights are just minutes away on foot.
