Great value hostel in Valencia. The location is great because it is right in the center of the city and also very close to the City of Arts and Sciences. Rooms are very spacious and clean. Also nice and cool. The wifi works really well. Breakfast was disappointing but there are cheap options within the city. Nice common room area. Wish there were more events going on while I was there.
The River Hostel was amazing! Everything you would need in a hostel was here, the amenities were very clean, the staff was really nice and the atmosphere was great as well! There was a kitchen to do your own cooking and a very nice common area.
Not a bad hostel but nothing great. Aircon wasn't working and the rooms were awfully hot, made it really difficult to sleep. Lockers are really annoying to get into and very loud too. Not super social but that could have just been the days I was there. Worth the €11 but definitely not the best I've stayed at
Not very good air conditioning, ended up changing room because it was so hot and there was an epic snoring person. The staff let me change straight away, they were super nice about it too even though I was testy from no sleep. The other room was much better :)
The hostel was oké, location was good and atmosphere was oké. Unfortunately the kitchen was not really clean and was really unequipped, the airco in the rooms only worked during a short period of the night. This was not really pleasant in the morning
Nice facilities in a great location (only 10-15 min walk to all the main attractions) but the air conditioning in our room didn't work the whole time I was there, so it was dreadfully humid! They did have clean shower facilities and a cool open common space for everyone to chill out in. The cheap 7eur full day bike rental was a great and convenient way to visit the beach and parks!
I will definitely recomens this Hostel for everyone.
The location was good, next to the park! The airconditioning was also very nice and necessary. A minus was the bed, we had a double one but it was very hard and made a lot of noise if you turned, and there was only one very long pillow which we had to share.
As a solo traveler, I thought this was a great hostel. There were plenty of events available so you could get to know other people if you wanted. The bikes for hire were a lovely facility, as was having the walking tour guide collecting us from the hostel reception. It would have been nice to have been warned in advance of the fireworks the evening I stayed, and also about the fact that the hostel is very near a loud bar; I didn't get a lot of sleep at The River Hostel.
Spacious rooms with good size lockers. Private rooms are especially comfortable, but the bunk beds in shared rooms are quite hard to get in to. Good size kitchen and common room, with a bar that created a good atmosphere. Great location too, right in the centre of Valencia.
The hostel was spacious, clean and the staff were all very friendly. We couldn't believe the size of our room or how clean the showers, toilets and kitchen was. I would definitely stay there again and would happily recommend it to all my friends!
Bathroom Facilities were clean at the River hostel, and we had a nice 4 dorm room. The kitchen was never clean. Patrons didn't clean up after themselves which was disgusting. They really need to have the kitchen cleaned everyday. You may not get much sleep over the weekend, as it is very loud in the corridor so I would use earplugs. Hostel atmosphere wasn't really appealing to us this during our stay. The hostel is good value for money, and the Air con was great. The staff were nice too.
Ivan, the member of the staff was extremely communicative and helpful.
Great value for your money although you might find too much noise on the ground floor during nighttime.
Very accommodating staff, wonderful location. Great place to stay in Valencia.

One of our group arrived an hour before the rest of us at 12am, and wanted to check in to go to sleep. She was not allowed to do this until the whole party had arrived, which was very unaccomodating. The staff were unfriendly and the environment was hostile.
Nice hostel, very good location. You can not get any better for the money you pay. Just to recommend them to fix the problem whit the showers.
