The staff was really accomodating, the location was very convenient and the facilities were in good condtion. The view the terrace has was what made me feel good with the place. As when I stayed there, it was kind of hot in the day and there weren't any fans. Anyway, opening the window is a good option. The street noise...

Average place for a short visit. Location is excellents. Within walking distance to the train station, city center, market place, and other attractions. Staff doesnt talk good english, so communication can be difficult for foreigners.

Centrally located makes for a convenient trip to Valencia. I wouldn't say the rooms are fantastic, but they met the purpose for the one night we stayed. Would I stay here again? probably for what we paid you can't ask for much more.

Basic but given the price difficult to complain. Lovely building. Friendly. Room freezing and quite noisy but fine. Pretty. Balcony and high ceilings. Good communal kitchen. Such a great location. Would be ideal when the weather gets warmer.

This place is right in the center. I've stayed there twice and when I go back I'll stay again. The price is great and all I need are the necessities and I was happy that there was WIFI. Made some friends there as well.

Overall a pretty average hostel, but it's a good deal considering the price and location. Fast wi-fi and clean bathrooms and kitchen. Each room is provided with a fan, which is a godsend considering it stays very hot in the rooms at night. The beds were not to my liking and the neighboring street is noisy (sounds like all of...

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
