Thank you for a wonderful three nights in Valencia! The location could not have been better, as it was only a short walk to most of the city's major attractions, including the cathedral. Everything was very clean and the staff were helpful--they had many good recommendations for places to eat and things to do in Valencia. If you are a bit unsure of the signage on the restrooms: they are unisex. But don't worry, because the shower/toilet stalls are completely private.

Home Backpackers was a great hostel. The location was in the Carmona neighborhood and was no more than a 5 minute walk to the center. It is in a safe and active area. The hostel is clean, the staff is friendly and helpful and the facilities (common room area, kitchen, etc) were definitely useful. I would definitely stay here again.

When we stayed the hostel was a little quiet but that in no way was caused by the hostel itself, most likely just the time of year. We had a nice spacious room and the staff were all very helpful. An extremely convenient location and couldn't think of anywhere better than this hostel to stay in Valencia!

Staff wasn't friendly or helpful. Internet is horrible. Not a all clean, there were nail clippings and other peoples hair on my sheets... Bathrooms smell horrible, all the the time. Lounge is small, so the kitchen becomes the hangout area. Internet is on and off. It's a convenient location, loud though. Short bus ride to the beach.

Hello thanks for your review. I am sorry about your bad stay in our hostel. About your bed, sometimes, people don´t uses their assigned beds so it gets difficult to know the beds to make; but for sure if you had told in reception, we will make you a clean one. About the wifi, you are right. When hostel is full the conexion can fail, for that we will invest in upgrade our lines for next season. I am shocked about your words for our staff, fortunately it is not the opinion of mostly guests

Stayed there twice and really liked it. Met a lot of nice people there. The staff was very friendly and helpful as well, especially Felipe. He's quite a nice guy, even he could be a bit better in chess. :D Rooms, kitchen and also the bathrooms were cleaned professional, so everything was tidy! It may get a bit hot in the dorms and the beach is not really in walking distance, but isn't that nice anyway. ;) I can definitely recommend this hostel!

Great location everything is easily walked to. However driving to this location was quite tricky. Mostly because of all the one way streets surrounding it. Staff were absolutely excellent. They were able to help me with all the questions I had.

I was going to stay 4 days, i stayed two weeks (i even registered for this site specially so i could leave a review)! It's clean, everybody is super social, its location is perfect and overall one of the coolest i have stayed in. Special thanks to the staff: Alix, Carlos, Felipe, Heidi, Kostas and Lyn!! I came to a place to sleep and left it as a home filled with friends :D The only bad thing is that I could not stay even longer! (But i will pass by on my way back) Love you all and miss you Xxx

Would not recommend this hostel. There are many more hostels in Valencia that have to be better than this. First, there are many hidden charges: 5 euro deposit for room key, 5 euro deposit for towel, 2 euro deposit for locker. We had many issues with the staff. We are current residents or spain and had our DNIs and they still demanded for our passports which we didn't have. The rooms are not clean and are very humid and mucky. It is also EXTREMELY LOUD in this hostel. WOULD NOT RECOMMEND

We really sorry if you arent satisfied with us taking deposits for towels, etc but is something very common in all hostels. We do not know what happened with you and your roommates but these things are not of our control. You came down stairs very stressed and yelled at the night receptionist. When he asked you what happened, you just said ¨you cannot help me¨. We always try to resolve any problems and in this case changed your room. You came x Halloween and parties are very common.

Only for one night but staff were excellent and let us leave our packs there the whole day! Bathroom was a little dirty but nothing unbearable

This is a great hostel. I love to stay in this place when I am in Valencia. You easilymeet other travelers in the relaxed atmosphere. I enjoy the well-equiped kitchen and the excellent location. The only (small) negative point is that the door of my room could be easily pushed open. The security lock did not work properly. But that`s all. Over all, I am very happy to have stayed here again. Next time in Valencia, Home Backpackers will be my home away from home again.

The bathrooms had a bad smell. The location is good and is in a walking distance of many bars and restaurants, and of taxi and bus stops. A little bit far to get to the beach but not much difficult.
