A rather disappointing stay and a bit of a mixed review. Pluses (always first) charming, friendly staff. Frankly I thought they deserved better. Good enough location in El Carmen near Plaza Tossal. Walking distance to most attractions. Room was clean/bed was clean. Price was excellent for a weekend. Minuses. My initial email was never answered. When I tried to book... More

Although we stayed here for only 1 night and left in the morning, our stay was excellent. Great staff, neat and clean rooms, spacious, bathrooms were big and plenty. Perfect location, food market and cathedral are walking distance and a good eating area nearby. We even found free parking right near the hostel for our car. And if I remember... More

This is a nice hostel in a great location for walking to most of Valencia's attractions. The staff are really helpful and welcoming. Huge kitchen and a nice social place. The free walking tour picks up right from the hostel and is a great way to meet other travelers.

This was a very popular place. I crossed paths with people that I had met in other cities. The rooms are nice, the staff is wonderful, and the kitchen is wonderful. There is also a cooking class that I recommend.

My stay here was not great at all. Staff was rude upon arrival and demanded our passports which we didn't have as we are residents of Spain. The room was disgusting. It was hot and muggy. Also wifi didn't work in the rooms even though they swore it did. There are MANY other hostels in Valencia; pick another hostel when... More

A cool hostel with friendly staff, a large kitchen where you could meet other people before a night out. Super comfy mattress and very clean. The pub crawl was cancelled because of lack of interest but we visited in November, not peak season. Wifi in the room was a bit hit and miss but was available in the sitting room... More

Home Backpackers Valencia is a really welcoming hostel to stay in, beginning with the staff who are so accomodating, helpful and friendly. I ended up forgetting one of my items and the staff were so kind and helpful to send it back to my home country! I think that sums up how accommodating and helpful they were! Beside the great...

Great Hostel. So glad I decided to stay here. The pub crawls are great and there is an awesome atmosphere in the hostel. The bedrooms are quiet and clean and there is someone on the desk 24 hours so if you need anything they are always there. If you are looking for somewhere in central Valencia I would recommend here!!... More

Perfect hostel for a couple of nights! I meet a lot of other travelers and had a great time. It was placed perfect in the city close to historical sightseen, parks and pubs! Had a really fun night with the pub crawl! My only complain might be the temperature in the rooms, an AC would make the stay even more... More
