This place is right in the center. I've stayed there twice and when I go back I'll stay again. The price is great and all I need are the necessities and I was happy that there was WIFI. Made some friends there as well.

I was meeting a friend coming from California (I'm British but living in Qatar) to attend the final weekend of the MotoGP season. Having searched for suitable hotels I saw Pension Universal come up at a very low price. I was unsure as it seemed too cheap but looking at the reviews decided to go for it. What a perfect... More

Overall a pretty average hostel, but it's a good deal considering the price and location. Fast wi-fi and clean bathrooms and kitchen. Each room is provided with a fan, which is a godsend considering it stays very hot in the rooms at night. The beds were not to my liking and the neighboring street is noisy (sounds like all of...

The hostel is slightly old so if you are travelling with friends make sure your friends aren't picky. Otherwise they will keep complaining. The staff were friendly and problems get sorted immediately. The bathroom was cleaned everyday so overall it's acceptable. Central location means you get to all scenic spot in walking distance. Near metro too. Easy to find

Good, inexpensive accommodation. Friendly efficient staff, clean rooms. Great location near to all main transport. Very good for Valencia Nord station. Free Wi-Fi a bonus. Late arrival time of midnight great for ferry users.

They have a good price, very nice kitchen and they are in the center really close to the train station. It´s not a luxurious place but it will serve your needs. The worst thing is to share two bathrooms with a floor.

Location was excellent, staff was very helpful, common spaces were nice. Found other guests to be very inconsiderate and rude but that was no fault of the hostel. The rooms for many (where you can book each bed individually) were very crowded but that was expected.
