The hostel was in a great location and I could walk to almost anywhere easily. There was a lot of hang out space and I was able to meet a lot of people. There is also a nice roof terrace where we sat out and had some wine. The staff was helpful when I asked advice about how to get to another destination. The breakfast was average but it was free so that was nice.

Good hostel right in the historic centre of the city, 2 mins away of the historic places of Valencia

Very unimpressed with this HI hostel. The room was dank, the shower was teeny and unclean, no soap to wash your hands, the wifi was nonexistent anywhere above the main floor, and there was no atmosphere! We were hoping there'd be something for New Year's Eve but nothing was organized. The breakfast was bread and was never replenished. We saw bowls at the breakfast buffet but there was never any hint of cereal. Don't stay here...go stay at Home hostel instead!

The bathrooms were always extremely filthy. Impossible to use them

The toilet flush in our room was broken, they fixed it in the following day, but then there wasn't toilet paper. And all the bathrooms and toilets smell really bad, maybe because they are old and need some renewal. The staff is not very nice compared to other hostels.

Advantages: Excellent location, safe place, huge lobby/eating place to hang out with other guests, cheap. Disadvantages: Small rooms, poor breakfast.

Our washroom was pretty gross. The ceiling was molding, the shower was unusable. Our bedroom door was so creaky it was impossible to sleep if anyone walked in. The staff was great but it did not make up for the boring atmosphere. What youth hostel prohibits alcohol? The only thing that made it okay was the great pub crawl!

Thanks for your review. We do apologize if the shower / bathroom was not up to standard, we are currently looking into this issue. The hostel gets a freshening up (painting, etc) around the beginning of the year. Regarding alcohol, as in most hostels it is not allowed to drink or eat in the rooms (these conditions can be checked beforehand). We are glad you enjoyed the pubcrawl though and we do hope you enjoyed your stay in Valencia. Regards.

The common area is not really nice to meet hang out or meet people. In summer the terrace must be a lot better for that though.

Good location and decently nice hostel. Biggest annoyance was that the beds in my room werent even beds at all, but giant foam pads. I slept poorly both nights. Breakfast really wasn't much either.

Our 6-person dorm was perfect for our group. There was plenty of space for us (except the ensuite bathroom was tiny, but it was private and clean, so that was good) and the lockers for our stuff were huge. The hostel is in an awesome location very close to the Cathedral and some cool bars. The free breakfast was bad--just toast and cereal and they ran out of things like milk and plates--but the hostel was really affordable, so we didn't mind going somewhere else for breakfast.

It's 9 Euros per night, so how can I complain? From the previous reviews, it is true that the room is really really small for 6 beds, breakfast is not great, but it's free. Just don't drink anything from their machines.All dirnks is really watered down. If you want milk, just get a liter on your own. For the positives.Great location, great value for the money, huge lockers in the room, kitchen was great, and friendly staff. However, please be patient when checking in. Good value for money.

It's one of the cheapest hostels in Valencia. You get what you pay for. Small rooms, very basic breakfast, etc... but everything that is there is okay.

The room we were in was quite small but manageable. The kitchen was well stocked but there wasn't a whole lot of fridge space. We did both the 'free' walking tour and the pub/club crawl which were both really worth it.

What was missing the most was the atmosphere. With that location they probably could have gone with a more original Valencian style with for example decorating to match with the surroundings of the hostel. But overall everything worked like it was supposed to and I have no complaints either. The roof terrace was really good, because the kitchen was hardly any good in meeting people, people were more in each other's way cooking.

Thanks for your comment. The atmosphere you encounter sometimes depends a bit on other travellers too. Both the free tour of the city and the pub crawl is organised so our guests have some options when they come to the Hostel. Glad you enjoyed the terrace though! Regards from Valencia

The hostel is very clean, the rooms were great, the beds were very comfortable, the location is excellent and staff was very helpful. The only thing I didn’t like was to pay for a towel and that the shower didn’t have a curtain.

Thank you for sharing your opinion. Many hostels charge for use of towels, bedlinnen and it is usually specified in the booking conditions. Regards.
