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.

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.

The hostel is located in the middle of the city town. It is very clean, modern-styled, near the metro, buses and the Renfe (train) station. Toilets and showers are very clean and comfortable, as well as bedrooms. Attention is excellent. Free wifi. I totally recommend it. Whenever I return to Valencia, I will undoubtedly go to this hostel again!
