No issues here. + Shared kitchen is actually excellent compared to other hostels. 5* for their kitchen! + Price and location. - Old building with no elevator. Rooms are...

It's and old building, no heating and no airco in the rooms. They have some heating in the hallway. I did not have much noise,...

Inside is clean enough, but the bed liners with a lot of "spots" on it. If you are planning to visit the city, the beach, then Pension Universal is what you are looking for. Located in the middle of the city, you have easy accces to everything. There are busses just across the street that goes all the way to...

I only went there one night but it was more than enough to be quite sure that this place is very worth. It is in the middle of Valencia so the location is perfect. The service is also great. One great point was the fact that they allowed us to leave the bags all the afternoon even when we had...

I don't have much to say about this. Price is spot on. Place was clean for a hostel and quite cozy. We liked the details, everybody was super accomodating, they held our bags without any extra charge and were generally very understanding. Location is amazing and everything you would want is just around the corner!

I stayed for 3 nights in Valencia fleeing from my birthday in Germany. The hostel is located right in the center of Valencia. I had my own room with a shared bathroom. Bathrooms were very clean and comfortable. Although this is obviously not a 5 star hotel, I think is a very good opportunity to spend some nights in Valencia...
