Great hostel with very helpful staff! We stayed during Fallas festival so it was a bit crazy and very busy in the city. Our room was very clean but the large shared bathroom needed a bit more attention (really guests could be more considerate themselves). Security getting into the hostel was excellent but there were no lockers in the room which is always ideal. We had a great time and the hostel was bustling with life. Nice lounge area and patio. Large kitchen and eating quarters. Great place!
Normal, clean, not far from stuff. The only negatives were - I didn't get my 5€ room key deposit back. The morning receptionist woke me up to let me know I could sleep 30 minutes more so I couldn't actually sleep, and then she didn't come back to see if I was out - and i chatted with my roomate until 13:00 - I could have just slept! The other receptionist were nice, kitchen is a cool place. The bed situation a little confusing - no numbers where they should be. But a nice place in general.

Just spent one night here. All fine except a fair amount of noise from the street. There was a spacious bathroom. Must be sufficient for all people if hostel is full.
Very close to sightseeing during the day and plazas to chill in at night. Not very social, doesn't have a clear/convenient common area to socialize. Very clean, hot showers, quality kitchen. Secure, large lockers. Quality hostel, but lacks a social/community vibe.
The hostel location is amazing. It's a bit older but it was always very clean which was great. The staff is hit or miss, though. You can definitely tell who wants to be there and who doesn't. I imagine it'd be much better during the summer time.
The hostel was absolutely great, but the atmosphere wasn't very good, there should be an age limit.
Staff are very friendly and helpful; they go that extra mile to help you. I am English but learning Spanish but Staff can help you in both languages which was really helping my confdence to practice Spanish. Nothing I asked was too much trouble. Breakfast was good value; cheese and ham Toastie, toast and jam, coisants, tea, coffee and juice all for 3 euros. The beds are the BEST HOSTAL beds I've stayed in; confortable! Met some really nice people and very close to the city centre.
Hostel was fine although there was no hot water for showers

It is a well decorated cozy hostel. You can find everything you need on the same street and walk to the city center. Wifi works well. Showers could have been better though. The bar was empty even on weekend.
Great location, friendly and helpful staff. Shared bathroom was not very comfortable or enjoyable, but everything was quite clean. Our room was a little bit cold (no AC or heaters) but there were extra blankets. A pity they don't offer breakfast. Not the best hostel in the world, but a good hostel and a great choice for a few days in Valencia, and definitely great value for money.
great hostel and friendlt staff. one suggestion: bring your own adaptator for elettronic devices cause the plug-in it's only the spanish one
Had a great stay! Would recommend this hostel to anyone visiting Valencia!
Very good location and the staff were alway willing to help. Very clean and a big well equipped kitchen! The walking tour was very good fun . if I came back to Valencia I would stay there again. Totally recommended
The kitchen is well equipped and laid out and the staff are kind and friendly. The decor is bizzare in places with 19th centrury stucco ceilings stained with cigarette smoked drapped with net curtains. The location is good with easy access to a large supermarket and within a short walk of the station. But beware of the Museum of Sciences - the archetecture is truly wonderful - breathtaking indeed. But the displays are pathetic - the standard of curration utterly abysmal.Not worth the money.
It was winter, so maybe it had something to do with thad, but as a solo traveler i didn't feel any intusiasm from the staff. They seemed to be bored, and for me it makes all the difference in a hostel. The facilities were nice, tough, nothing to complain. Except for the bathroom, where you couldn't lock the doors while you were getting dressed.
The bed was terrible. Wifi not working inside the room. Not enough plugs. Though it's cheap.
Really nice atmosphere and it was a comfortable stay in the hostel!
The location of the hostel is really nice: you can explore the city centre by foot. In addition, there are a lot of points were you can hire a Valenbisi (bike) for a week (only €13 for 7 days), so you can bike to the beach! The staff is very kind: we were welcomed with a sangria upon arrival! And you can ask them eveything! The first night, it was very cold (december), so we asked for an extra blanket, no problem! I would definitely recommend this hostel to others.
The hostel is located not near to any metro/train station. Walking takes abt 30min to the station. Room is clean and nice. Heating is minimal but good enough for the small room. Toilet is ok but the hot water takes some time to come out so gotta let the water run for at least 5min before U can shower. Wifi is irregular, saw some ppl loitering on the stairs just to use the device... Overall the stay was alright if u are too demanding.
