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.

This hostel does exactly what it says on the tin, with a perfect location for using as base for Las Fallas in march. It is right next to Ayuntament, a main square where many events of the festival takes place. The staff were very friendly and helpful, with one staff member telling us the exact time and location to go... More

Clean and lovely location, friendly staff and good value for money It was a bit loud at night, but I did go over the Fallas period which is party time in town. I am glad I had my own room as late at night I could hear very 'cheerful' people coming back, including a couple having a massive fight. This... More
