Excellent hostel! I definitely recommend it, specially if you young.
Wifi worked well, they had plenty of fridges and utilities to prepare food friendly staff and they have a lift, so no carting bags up stairs!! Bathrooms are mixed though this wasn't an issue for me.
It was just a bit hot during the night, even though we had 3 fans in our room. But overall I really liked the hostel!
Still like the hostel, but the atmosphere changed a lot since my last visit. It miss the hype of an europe famous hostel and there is a big lack of atmosphere. Simple but clean roomes. LIke the roof top terrace alto lights up there would be appreciated.
This host is so chill. The staff is great and knows all the good places to catch a bite to eat.
We had a excelent stay in this hostel with my friends, one of the best things in this Hostel is the people who works in the reception, like Francesca and Clara they were very friendly and helpful !
The only think that I didn't like was that it was incredibly hot, but, it IS Spain in the middle of summertime. Other than that it was a typical hostel experience with great staff, great walking tour and other extra activities. Location was in the middle of the old city, and that's the best place to experience the true culture if Valencia.
I had an amazing stay at this hostel, I didn't think I would of liked Valencia as much if I didn't stay there, such good guests coming and very social! highly recommend
Each and every staff member was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and made this place what it is. As a lone traveller, a good range of activities set up to make meeting others easier, which is useful seeing as the hostel can host a lot of guests. As someone who has worked in a hostel, plenty of ideas that I might copy :)
It's the staff that REALLY make this place. Get to know them all and then the hostel truly lives up to its name! Cheers Ellie, Tehran, Violetta, Carlos the Vampire, Sean, lovely cleaning ladies, Mama Clara, Francesca, Auntie Alexandra and...am I forgetting someone? Hmm...Oh, yeah...Party animal KEVINNNNNNNNNNNN! Valencia rocks! Cheers guys! Kat. xxxx
Staff at this hostel were very friendly and helpful. Having mixed toilets (girls and boys) wasn't pleasant.
Good facilites, cool terrace, nice staff, guys who ran the pub crawls were mad!!
We had a very nice stay in this hostel, the staff is great, they have regular 5 euro pubcrawls and in general it is a good place to get to know other travelers, if I ever come back to Valencia I will definitively come back here. Grazie per tutto Francesca!!

Good stay. Nice new facilities in an old church or some such arrangement. Very hot in dorms, hard to sleep unless you are wasted... Which you will be.
This hostel is amazing! The staff is very attentive, helpful, and will answer all your questions in most lanugages spoken. Furthermore, during the summer they have fans in the dorms that keep the room cool during the day. I will definitely be staying here again if I come back to Valencia!
Good enough. Nice staff´, decent place decent location but in the city center and not near the beach if that matters to you.
What a fantastic place! Home Backpackers is a brilliant hostel in a fantastic city! I ended up staying for five nights instead of the two I booked, very much because of Francesca in the reception (I wish all hostel staff were like you!) and Kevin (you're a true legend!) that works with the pub crawl and other social activities! Great location, easy to meet other travelers and lots of fun, I'll be back! Andy & Nelson
Terribly hot dorms. No ar conditioning and the fan was not working. And the beds are noisy. The staff and location are great.

Fantastic hostel with such a good atmosphere. The bar crawl is fun and good value (5 euros for 5 shots and bars). I don't understand how the guys lead the same bar crawl day in day out...Staff were so lovely too
