I honestly liked the hostel at first. It was when I saw how the cleaning lady cleaned that I knew this hostel was not clean. She merily came into the room and drug her broom around and did the same thing with the mop. I stayed here for 3 night and in a 6 girl room and didn't know anyone... More

Thanks for the feedback. Sorry you did not enjoy your stay. Regarding the cleaning, the staff passes the rooms daily (brooming, and mopping with water and chlorine) and access to make a more thorough cleaning when guests are not inside the room. In any case, you can always ask the staff if you find the room/bath not spotless. Regarding the... More

Value for money. For 2 nights I paid a little less than 21 EUR, that's for a bed in a female dormitory with own toilet and bath. It comes with free breakfast. Location. It's walking distance from all important tourist spots, parks, buildings, orxata stores and even good paella restaurants. No need to ride a cab nor take a bus... More

The front entrance looks so clean and modern but the rest of the hostel is in disrepair. The rooms are cramped and unclean. The kitchen is filthy and forces you to go out and eat. The bathrooms were tiny. The lockers were pretty decent but you have to put euro deposits to use them. We were hoping for planned activities... More

We are truly sorry that you did not enjoy the hostel. We are looking into the issues you mention. To be fair, some of them, such as the age or behaviour of other customers are not really our fault, but of course the kitchen has to be checked if many customers are making use of it, and not leaving it...

I was supposed to stay in this hostel for 4 nights yet checked out after 2 due to it's poor standard. On my second day I returned to my room to find my locker empty with all my stuff gone, it turned out I was supposed to change room (I hadn't been told this) and therefore they had emptied my...

As we already do personally, we would like to appologize again for the inconvenience of having to change you from one room to another and without the adequate communication. Anyway we can ensure you that our lockers a absolutly safe and that never a guest has any inconvenience. Your comment about the door who has been opened during the night... More

We arrived at Center Valencia very late at night for a one night stay. We were in an 8 bed room, where only two girls were sleeping. However, the two girls had completely spread out and we struggled to get to our beds because it was such a tight squeeze between the beds. We went down stairs to eat and... More

I stayed here for three nights in early july. I had a 4 bed dorm but was alone most of the time. The hostel was clean and the staff really friendly. My room and sheets were clean. The location was great. There was sufficient cooking and common room area. Small but sufficient breakfast included. I am shocked to read the... More

I stayed here for two nights in May in a 6 bedded dorm. The room was big with an en-suite only problem the door didn't close properly, but they can get this fixed. Each bed had a locker that can fit your bag in, but you do have to put a 1/2 euro in (you do get this back each... More

The Center Valencia was good value for money. Its location, right in the centre of the old city, was great. The staff that I met were very friendly and helpful. I found everything very clean. The breakfast, included in the room cost, was nothing to write home about but I appreciated it. I appreciated the free computers and the WiFI.... More

This place was horrible. My whole time in Spain I never stayed in place as bad as this one. The smell in this place was disgusting and the rooms, washrooms, and sheets were even more so. Would not recommend anyone to stay there. Impossible to get to if you are driving.

Booked this place because it was cheap and conveniently located. You don't expect much from a hostel, and this met all expectations. But, honest to Jehovah, something has gone down in their plumbing system. When you enter the front door you get a whiff of something, but it's obscured by pine-o-clean or some industrial strength odour. Our room had something... More
