The River Hostel is your go-to base for taking on Valencia, and our central setting makes us a favourite with solo travellers. Our friendly staff will set you up on free walking tours to introduce you to our lovely city. Prefer exploring independently? Grab one of our free maps, rent a bike or scooter from us and set off on your own. When you're back, we've got a games room, lounge and chill-out space where you can battle over the PlayStation, or just relax with a beer at the bar.


We're in the atmospheric Ciutat Vella district which is charming, laidback and full of awesome Spanish architecture. You'll be right beside Turia Gardens, one of Spain's biggest urban parks, and a five-minute stroll from Valencia Cathedral and Alameda metro station. From Valencia Airport, take the red (#3) or green (#5) metro line – it takes about half an hour – or we can arrange a transfer if you'd rather come by taxi.

Rooms and Dorms

You'll bed down in a dorm or private room. All our rooms have air con, heating and shared bathrooms. Most have a balcony, so you can watch the sun setting over the city before you head out. You'll have sheets for no extra charge and towels can be borrowed with a deposit. Our custom-made bunk beds are wider than normal to give you extra space to stretch out, and each one has a reading light, personal locker and privacy curtain.

Extras and activities

You can leave your backpack in our luggage room if your flight's not till later, and there's a free car park nearby if you're road-tripping through Europe. We've also got free Wi-Fi, because if you can't Snapchat our paella-making class, did it actually happen? And with breakfast available in our on-site café, vending machines for snacks and a communal kitchen for cooking up your favourite meals, you'll be well fed during your stay.

    My stay at River Hostel may have spoiled me for a stay at any other hostel. The building layout felt spacious and allowed for privacy. The bed, bathroom and shower areas were clean and everything was in working order. Good breakfast options even-- for me--on a coeliec diet. Great location for park access. I highly recommend the bike rental and free city tours.

    very good hostel, staff, location, clean, and very friendly all the people who work in the hostel. just a detail, it is necessary to be more strict in the noise that the boys who stay on the first floor do, especially at night when people are asleep.

    The bed was really comfortable, the room was big and spacious and we had a container to put our belongings in with a lock. The bathrooms were always clean and worked well. I really liked it!

    Overall good hostel located in a quiet and safe area of Valencia. You get your own locker for storage and you have your own curtain for your bed to cover up the light on in the room. When I am in Valencia again, I will stay here.

    It was a really nice hostel! But the best part was going on the tour with Sonia where she recommended us good places to get authentic paella and museums and cool places to visit!

    It was good. I stayed two nights, and it is VERY well located. The girl at the desk just basically checked me in, did not explain anything. She just gave me a sheet with the information, a map without marking anything and did not take me to the room, I was guided by a guy who was staying there too. The lockers are trunks under the beds where my bag did not fit, but they give you the padlock. Valencia is beautiful. It’s a place to sleep.

    When I arrived, some other guy had my bed and we spent around 30 mins solving the problem. There's also only 1 elevator. Anyway, the facilities and location were really good.

    Whilst the aesthetics of the hostel are really nice and clean theres a severe lack in atmosphere, maybe a few more board games would help. Or maybe turn off the wifi at certain times to stop people using their phones so much 😉. I would stay here again though the location is great and rooms are very clean

    I wouldn't recommend this hostel if you are traveling solo. I spent 4 nights here and there wasn't much going on.
