Old and squeaky beds were the main problem and the mattress although It wasn't unfortable just loud also floors were grubby in bedrooms shared facilities were good apart from no way of telling male bathroom from female which was a bit uncomfortable for myself, staff were friendly and answered all my questions as best they can although nearest food shop is about a 30 minutes walk from the Hostel. Kitchen was perfect apart from no oven, I had a good stay there but wouldn't choose to go again.

My friends and I were split up because the hostel was "too full" and upon arriving to my room alone, I see two totally untouched beds with no one residing in them in the morning.

I like that there was baggage storage available without charge and that there were power plugs in the common areas.

I stayed at River Hostel just one night because of "Las fallas", and the Hostel was really good, clean and the staff were very kind giving me important info about restaurants, bike rents, city tours, etc.

A good hostel close to the old town city centre in Valencia. It's really well located for events during Las Fallas and for the rest of the time, it's only a five minute walk to the centre and right beside the 'river', so you can walk along there to the museums and beach. The facilities are really good, comfortable beds and big lockers in each room. It's really clean as well. Staff come across as rude and disinterested, but they answered every question I asked, so can't complain.

Great staff, fun atmosphere but dirty bathrooms! I understand it's difficult to keep it clean with all the young partiers, but still.

Great facilities, poor atmosphere and management. I think the hostel must cater to large groups, because during our stay there were 3 school groups, and some sort of convention of Magic Card players who took up all the tables in the common area all day. Therefore as a solo/small group traveller it was hard to meet other people. This hostel is new and so the facilities were very good, however they were quite dirty some days, and dishes piled all over the counters in the kitchen. Staff unhelpful.

Can't really say anything about the kitchen as we didn't use it.. The people in our dorm room never locked the door, kind of frustrating, but really liked the lockers under the bed! Lots of room in the dorms.. and they have a nice set up for the rooms. Kind of a far walk from the train station, but it's very quiet. Overall, decent hostel, would stay again.

The River Hostel was a nice place to stay in. It is located right by the old part of Valencia (very pretty to walk around in) and it is on the River (also very pretty for a walk/bike ride). Staff was excellent and room was clean. The room was very cold though, however I think they have space heaters, I'm not sure if there is a charge for them or not.

The building itself was kind of old but it was very clean. Easy to access almost everything in Valencia.

This is a very nice clean hostel. While I was there it wasn't noisy and everything was lovely. The internet connection was really slow, but otherwise it's easy to find and in a good location

Nice hostel, friendly staff clean and big kitchen. Doors do not close very well, for that it is a bit noisy. But anyway, clean and wifi is ok. I would recommend it.
