Home Backpackers is one of the cleanest hostels I have stayed at. The bathrooms and kitchen are kept in amazing condition. The Kitchen is huge so it's a great hostel to cook in to save some money instead of eating out all the time. It's in the centre of the city, however it takes at least half an hour to get to the beach - walking to the tram stop & then the trip itself. Some of the staff didn't know very much about the area which was really frustrating when asking for advice.

Great hostel with an amazing kitchen and friendly/helpful staff. It is a bit hard to get to initially.. Especially with directions from port involving "walk a little ways"- in what direction?. But regardless- a great hostel; it was easy to meet tonnes of people, as I was travelling alone.

Very good hostel. Has everything you need and very close to the city center. As a solo traveller, and I didn't think it was the best hostel to meet people, but maybe I was there during a downtime

Very clean and friendly staff! Only problem was they kept throwing out our groceries a bag from our room and a bag from the fridge which was named and dated but was thrown out anyway.. And when you are backpacking every dollar counts

Home backpackers was amazing. The faciltes are great - comfy beds, clean washrooms and a big kitchen with 4 refrigerators. The staff were very friendly and helpful. One of the girls even cooked free pasta for dinner for the whole hostel one night - amazing! The lockers in the room were big enough to fit everything (require a 2 euro deposit) and overall we had a really good stay. Considering the price of this hostel it is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed at!

I really enjoyed this hostel. I had difficulty finding it but that turned out to be more to do with me getting confused with my own paperwork than with the directions the hostel provided! I was really gutted that the Street Art Alternative Tour of the city was cancelled when I was there due to appalling rain. The kitchen and common room are on separate floors, which can make it tricky to have flow with people, but I met some great people so it wasn't too much of an issue. Not many sockets!

Great location with minutes of walk to sights in the old town and close to lots of cheap & nice restaurants and cute shops. Staff are friendly and helpful and speak pretty good English. Will recommend this place to my friends travelling to Valencia.

Nice place. Wifi didn't work in our room at the end of the second floor but overall really enjoyed the facilities here, good showers and etc. Not the absolute best place for meeting other travellers, at least when we were there people mostly kept to themselves, but there is a common room and a fantastic huge kitchen to cook in. Lots of great tips and activities from the front desk. Big place. Unfortunately rooftop deck closed indefinitely currently (due to noise laws).

Perfect location and amazing staff who were always willing to answer questions and give tips about valencia. Plenty of common areas to chill out in and meet people which made for a really fun, social atmosphere. The dorm was light, spacious and equipped with big lockers. The breakfast that included fresh bread and pastries was also a nice bonus. I would definitely recommend staying at this hostel!

This was a great hostel with a great location, despite hard to find on arrival. There is no prominent sign but the door frame is painted red which helps. The staff were very helpful and friendly. the only thing I liked less it that it seemed to be so "English" that I didn't really get to practise my Spanish. other than that great place!
