Its facing the river, is close to the main city bus depot and you can directly hit the main road which will lead you to city of arts and sciences and aquarium. Its a little damp from inside... More

Excellent showers and CLEAN toilets! Did not like facilities for breakfast. Hired cycle from BICIPOINT (9euros/24h even at weekends) twice, that can be found half way down Carrer De Governador Bell, excellent service.

Very quiet hostel, helpful staff and a great way for solo travellers to meet other people. Surrounding area is very pretty and there is plenty to do to keep everyone entertained. Very happy to have found this gem.

The location of this hostel was good and you could hire a bike for 6 euros which I thought was a pretty good deal. The breakfast was not good, I wasn't expecting anything amazing, but to be honest I'd rather two pieces of cold dry toast weren't included. I was travelling alone and didn't think this hostel was very social.... More

Hostel is in a beautiful old building with extremely spacious rooms. 8 bed dorm had a balcony. Large kitchen and dining room - perfect for the size of the hostel. Short walk from a supermarket and the city centre.

The River Hostel was a good find nice and central with a great kitchen, very helpful staff. We rented a double room it was a huge room with small balcony over looking a park. It was great to be able to use the kitchen to creat a home cooked meal after being away from home for awhile. We would stay... More

The price wan't the only great part. They have a lot of things to do for people traveling which include a free tour of Valencia that you tip. In addition they had a Pub Crawl that was very decently priced. A flamenco show you could attend, free dinner on saturday nights and the location was superb. I highly recommend you... More

If you are looking to go to Valencia on a budget, this is the best place to stay. Ideally located in a neighbourhood, my friend and I had our own room for two nights for 49€. When we checked in the receptionist was extremely helpful and very knowledgable about the city, offering suggestions on great restaurants and attractions. Would definitely... More

Overall it's a good choice. Very big place in a very good neighborhood. Crew is charming yet serious and will help you with the basics. Bikes are rented for very good price. Rooms are big with convenient balconies. Beds are a little small and noisy but really didn't care. Bathrooms are clean and comfortable. The only issue for me was... More
