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.

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.

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!

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

Owner Comment (Hide)
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.

Had a great time, staff were very helpful and welcoming. Clean bed, nice kitchen, lots of people having fun for hardly any money :) . Was a really nice place to stay and wish i could have stayed longer.

Great hostel with a huge kitchen, clean rooms and clean bathrooms. They organize tons of free events. Overall a great hostel especially for the price.

Highly recommended! The hostel has big rooms (at least the 8 beds room was quite big), big lockers, clean toilets, friendly staff, very good location, at a walking distacnce to the main attractions in town, 10 min. walk from bus station and not too far from the central train station either. The only negative point for me would be the windows, the one in my room did not close very well and it's not soundproof, so you'd better have earplugs not to hear people parting in the street.

Great hostel, this place is well priced, easy to find and has friendly staff. Good atmosphere, large kitchen and decent wifi, ticks all the boxes for solo travellers :)
