I spent 2 nights at pension universal. Price was very good for the dormitory room. The pension is kept very clean, the owners care a lot about it. A lovely kitchen is available for use and the common room is cozy and comfortable. Dorm room was very basic but kept clean

Great position just of the main plaza near metro & main station. pleasant staff, clean and tidy all over. Toilets and showers all good and I found the beds comfy with a very handy double power light unit over each. Clean towel included. Recommended.

I stayed here for a total of two nights, but not consecutively. The place itself is lovely, very clean and appears very professional. There are plenty of guides and leaflets on what to do in Valencia, wi-fi throughout the building, a comfy social area with a large dining table, and a very modern and well-equipped kitchen. For some reason, they... More

In the middle of the city, close to train station and walking distance everywhere. The colors everywhere makes you happy and the shared livingroom has its own style, that makes you feel at home. Our 2-bed-room had a cute balcony and the rooms were so beautiful with high walls. The shared bathrooms was no problem and you never needed to... More

I stayed for 7 nights in the Pension Universal. It's located in the middle of the citycenter. The railway station and Xativa metro stop are a 5 minutes walk from the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The rooms are very simple but you can't expect too much for the price you pay. The beds are good but... More

We came here in August to do La Tomatina as it was cheap and near the city centre. It is a great location and not too far from train station to get the train to Bunol. The rooms are nice but basic, bed was comfy and generally we were happy with our stay. Shared facilities were fine, never had to... More

I was badly surprised with my room close to the shower. Its very basic. No tv. And a very thin small window. I hear water tipping everywhere as well as from the shower as in my room. You cant stop that easily. Much noise from the street. Terrible wifi.

If accommodation is secondary to location, you'll find Pension Universal right up your alley. The rooms are comfortable if basic and small but the wifi is fast and reliable and there's a sink and mirror in the single rooms to clean your teeth and have a quick wash of you don't fancy the hike to the shower. It's noisy outside... More
