The receptions are very nice and they are helpful as well. The shower is cold though.

Upon check in there was some difficulty with the computer but the receptionist was incredibly apologetic and helpful. All of the staff were really friendly and helpful. The atmosphere in the bar/kitchen area was lacking and we found it hard to mingle with people in the common areas. The directions were easy for us to find the hostel, it's in a nice clean area very close by walking distance to the centre of the town for shops and food.

Great hostel, near to the old part of Valencia as well as the park and public transport. Good common area. They seem to have a few large groups coming through which was fine as there was plenty of space. I didn't buy the breakfast as it looked pretty ordinary for 3euros. The rooms were comfortable and bathrooms generally clean. It did get a bit cold with aircon at night so pack a jumper and some trackies.

Hi Johana! Thanks to you to stay in Purple Nest. We want that our guests feel like at home, visit the city, discover a lot of places and have fun in Valencia! We will check about the aircon. Kind regards. Purple Nest Staff.

Nice hostel with a few things going on here and there. Big well-stocked kitchen. Easy to walk to from both train (15min) and bus stations (25min). Nice terrace on the first floor. Elevator to all floors. It's a huge hostel with many, many guests. Lockers in rooms. Free towels! Room we were in (Room 11: 10-bed mixed), was right next to the major road and therefore very, very noisy.. bring earplugs!

Friendly and helpful staff who were always willing to be accomodating - and with a smile. Good kitchen facilities and cleanliness. Every night they provided activities and dinner options but it is very well located so restaurants ect are close by.

Purple nest was good, seemed to bring in a different crowd of travelers. I would recommend Red nest over this one though just for the upbeat atmosphere it can have comparatively - It would be worth the extra few dollars. Location is decent and the running trails around the city are a plus. A/C should work better if advertised as such, fans in the room would be nice to circulate the stale air. Overall for the cost, good hostel.

Hello! Thank you for visting us! The Red Nest hostel is a great place to stay, the building is a little bit different than where Purple Nest is, but the services and prices are about the same. We are sorry about the aircon. It is complicated to put the right temperature in the rooms, since some people prefer warmer air and some cooler. Anyway, we always try to please everyones needs. We hope to see you in Purple in the future as well and we send you a lot of greetings!

Best thing about this hostel is the location! Right in the middle of where you want to be, on the edge of the old town next to the river. Staff are really helpful in answering questions. Lockers provided in every room and bathrooms are good. It was quite annoying however that the air con was controlled by reception. They only turned it on at 9pm and off in the morning so you wokeup so hot! Valencia is scorching, so this was uncomfortable.

Hello! Thank you for your comment! We are really sorry if you thought that it was too hot in the room. Normally de do turn it on earlier, because we know it's really hot weather outside! Anyway, we start turning it on even more early now :) We hope you enjoyed your stay despite of the hotness and we hope to see you in Valencia again! Kind regards from Purple Nest staff

Great place, but there just wasn't the atmosphere. The bar was empty every night. The pub crawl, we got three shots the whole night, while the guides got all the girls free drinks the whole time, then made us pay for a taxi into the beach to a club they knew would be closed at the time.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey! We have talked with the guides, and they can give 1 free drink for each person in every club and they cannot invite drinks to anybody. However they can share their own drinks with somebody else if they want. The club where you went with taxi was supposed to be open, so we will check what happened in that club that night. We are happy to refund you the money if you want, because our objective is that our guests have fun, so the guides will contact you. :) Kind regards

Great hostel! Enjoyed my stay and the free walking tour was great.. However, my shower was only 'warm' at the best of times and no alcohol *BYO in the hostel is a bit lame!

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hey! Thank you for stopping by our hostel! We do have hot water in all showers, but we will check the showers of your floor in case there would be any problem! Thank you for the tip. We don't allow people to bring their own alcoholic drinks to the hostel, in order respect the calm and order in the shared rooms. We hope that our guests understand it and everybody can have a good time :) we also have a really cheap bar where you can enjoy some drinks in the evening. Best regards!

A huge under used communal area has only one settee in it so unless your eating there is now where to chillout. The terrace was again under used and closed at10pm. Ban on drinking your own alcohol makes it an expensive pre-night out. Staff were always friendly and knowledgeable. Dorms and bathrooms were always clean.

Hi Chris! Thank you so much for your comments, are really helpful. We would try to improve in all the services, facilities, etc... On the other hand; we are going to change the common area, so we will have more sofas :) We hope to see you again next summer! Purple Nest Staff.

It is all clean but has not really a homey athmosphere. Be aware that you are not allowed to bring your own alcohol to the hostel. And there is a no-barfood rule. Only one spoon in the entire kitchen.

Owner Comment (Hide)
Hello! Thank you for your comment! It is true that it is not allowed to bring your own alcoholic drinks into the hostel. This same rule have many hostels and it's put to respect the calm in the shared rooms. We also have a bar in our hostel which is really cheap! We have a lot of tablewear in the kitchen, but soon we are gonna receive even more new things for cooking. :) We hope you enjoyed your stay anyway. Lots of warm greetings from Purple Nest!

Need to bring your own padlock for the lockers (although you can rent a safe for small items). But the hostel is clean, staff are friendly and atmosphere good. Offers a simple but decent breakfast for 3 euros.

Great hostel! Always has activities on, clean and staff always try to help although their wifi sucked and the computers had no internet either. Pub crawl was good and goes to different places each night

Hey! Thank you very much for your comment! We are trying to find a way to get our wifi better, because now there are a few spots in the hostel where the wifi doesn't work very well. Anyway, in most of the zones it does work well! We wish you a nice autumn time and take care! Greetings from Purple Nest

The wifi wasn't the best. The staff was really helpful.
