There were only 2 bathrooms on our floor, but I never had to wait for one. The owner/manager was very helpful and friendly! Besides just giving us solid suggestions for what to do with our time in Valencia, he also spent a lot of time and even a little bit of his own money helping us find parking. Great experience!

The staff/owner bends over backwards for his guests. He makes it a great place by helping you with the city rent a bike system for 2euro per day. I got a single room bc I need to recuperate from a few crazy nights. No AC. But it was manageable.

This is a solid hostel with fairly basic digs but exceptional staff. Everyone there went above and beyond to be helpful and welcoming.

Nice, clean hostel close to the city centre and the train stations. The staff were friendly and helpful. The water in the shower got cold pretty quickly but otherwise I had a good stay overall.

Staying at this hostel was a pleasure! Our room was simple, but very clean and with a magnificent view on the church opposite of the building. Breakfast was perfect - bread, coffee/tea, marmelade, cereal, pastries... just what you need to start your day in Valencia! The owner gave us a warm welcome and was very attentive and helpful - always wearing a big smile on his face :-)

One of the best hostels i have ever stayed at. Without a doubt the most helpful staff I have ever encountered. Willing and enthusiastic to help. We asked for help printing our train tickets and when the gentleman saw the departure time he offered to set out breakfast early got us. Very clean and large bathrooms. The only negative is that it isn't quite in the city centre and is a ways from the beach. We rented bikes and Valencia is a great city to see on two wheels. Well done Russafa!

The three of us stayed in a room with three beds, and we were very satisfied with this hostel. We received a very warm welcome and staff were very helpful and friendly. Everything was really clean, and we loved the neighbourhood! It's not exactly in the city centre, but merely a short walk away. In the Russafa neighbourhood there are loads of nice bars and cafés and we thought the atmosphere was actually better and less touristy than in the city centre.

Josef is an amazing host. This was my first time at a hostel since I was in my teens. My stay was pleasant and I returned for 2 more nights after traveling and he was more than accomodating. Breakfast was great and I left earlier than it was served on my last day. The staff informed me there would be some things available prior to my departure. I highly recommend Hostel Russafa to anyone visiting the Valencia area. It is located in a great spot. I look forward to staying here again!

great place for staying in valencia. the neighbourhood provides very good places to eat and drink in the evening plus the russafa is close to the train station and the airport metro as well to the old town (just a short walk). the hostel provides great value for money and the staff was very friendly and helpful. i hope to stay at russafa again! :)

The staff were very nice & helpful. The location was excellent. Everything was within walking distance. Not much atmosphere at the hostel, but then I did go during the 3rd week of January when it was quiet, so possibly to be expected.
