The roof terrace was closed so there was not really a nice place to chill :( Friendly staff, but because the hostel is quiet big, it is kind of impersonal. My food was stolen in the freezer. They'd better use a big food bin per room instead of let the guests only 'name their food'. I really disliked the mixed bathrooms! Awkward situations! The room was nice and clean though.


Parking is really hard. That´s why staying at this hostel could be hard.

Hi Antonio, you are right! parking at the middle of the downtown is really hard! but the location of our hostel is amazing, for this reason you do not need the car. At 15 min walking you have a free parking where the car can stay all the time :)) We hope see you again! Safe trip!


Home backpackers is a great choice! Especially if your keen for a pub crawl! The hostels bar downstairs is a good asset. Breakfast is good value for €1.50. Good storage under the beds and kitchen is decent. Lots of fridge space. The staff really know their stuff about the area, very helpfull with what to do, where to go.


A good place to stay but not enough space in the room. Kitchen area are too small.


Perfect hostel for a couple of nights! I meet a lot of other travelers and had a great time. It was places perfect in the city close to sightseen, parks and pubs! Had a really fun night with the pub crawl! My only complain might be the temperature in the rooms, an AC would make the stay even more pleasant!


It is centrally located and there are a couple of supermarkets within a couple of minutes of walk from the hostel. The kitchen was spacious and the bathrooms were very tidy. The staff was very helpful and provided us with all the informations about the tourist attractions worth visitinig. We left our bags at the hostel after checkout, as we had a late night bus. We were told that we can use the kitchen or have a shower afterwards, which meant a lot after a whole day of sightseeing.


I loved this hostel, everything was cleaned,the kitchen is huge and perfect to meet travellers! The staff was friendly and helpful, thanks to Lucia, Katja, Carlos, Felipe and Clara for showing us the best side of the city. The location is great, close to the night life and to the most interesting sites. We really appreciated Javier's Walking tour. I would totally recommend Home Backpackers :)

Nice location, great that the room had air conditioning as well as three industrial fans in it to help keep you cool which were amazing during our full day recovery from the awesome pub crawl we went on from the hostel.


Good hostel with great people. I stayed 2 nights after la Tomatina with the rest of te stragglers. The hosts were very accommodating and helpful. Beds were legit. Wifi was good throughout. Downside is a little far from metro/trains/busses

There is no aircon.. It was soo hot!! Some of them even had to go to the common areas to sleep because it was too hot. The location is good, reception was able to give some good tips on sight seeing. The bathroom could have been cleaner.

Hello, thanks for your review. Unfortunately, due to the nature of the historical building, we cannot have aircon in the whole hostel and therefore we have to use a good number of fans. Also, we don´t pretend to have it and it is not listed in our facilities. With regards to the bathrooms, they are cleaned every two hours, but if the hostel is busy and full, which unfortunately it was during your stay, we try our best to maintain it and keep it to a good standard.


Hostel was really clean & had good lockers. The kitchen was great with every appliance you could need. Location was good, with cool street art near by


Nice hostel except there is no air conditioning in the rooms only fans. The only air con is in common room. Really needs air con in rooms especially for Spain's summer.


I only stayed at this hostel for 1 night so it's hard to judge. Everything was fine but bathroom needs improvement. Extremely small and shower leaked all over bathroom floor which then made floor in bedroom wet too. There was 2 fans in the room but only 1 worked, was extremely hot when trying to sleep.


Good hostel, has everything you need and is clean


No (free) personal lockers in the dorms, but the rooms are clean and spacious. Plenty of bathrooms, and a neat communal kitchen, which is a good spot to meet other travellers.

Hello, thanks for your review. I am sorry if you didn't realize or misunderstood but we do have free lockers in every room. They work with a 2 euro coin which is returned when you put the key back into the locker. I hope you had a nice stay even with this problem and that we´ll see you in the future.


The only bad thing about this hostel is the rooms were very very hot at night. There were airconditioners in the room but they weren't working.

Hi Paris, thanks a lot for your review! we have just air conditioners in two rooms (the biggest) and some guest told us to turn on no so cold. The reason is some people be sick sleeping with the AA all the time! We decided turn on in 23ºC and they are working all day with this temperature! We hope see you again in our hostel and was a pleasure know you!!!


The bathrooms could have been cleaner and the baggage hold was open so there wasn't much security. Otherwise it was great


Great stay and super friendly and welcoming staff! The only downside was poor wifi access which could only be accessed from the common room but even that was not that bad :)


Really nice hostel, with very good staff. I would definitely return there if I ever went back to Valencia.


The hostel is located right in the old town which was good! Wasn't a perfect hostel, no a/c rooms get very hot, kitchen is a bit dirty and the facilities are past there best. The staff are very helpful and very nice. There are so many activities and great hostel to socialise! If the hostel was a bit modern could be one of the bests going around.
