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.

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
