The location was the main selling point with Pension Universal, very central and a lot to see in the area. The rooms had character and were clean enough although somewhat basic. AC would have been a bonus as we were staying in the middle of summer but that was a small issue. Otherwise a really enjoyable stay.

Quite a good hostel at the price. Very centrally located. Some traffic noise at night. Got a small darkish double room with shower in the room. Toilet shared with other rooms. Facilities very clean. Free wifi.

The rooms are interestingly old-fashioned, with big windows/balconies. Beds are reasonably comfortable, and the shared bathrooms are surprisingly clean. The guy staffing the front desk is nice, willing to stay up very late, and at least attempts to keep rowdy guests quiet after midnight. It's in a fairly central location. The worst thing was that the morning we were leaving,...

I stayed in this pension with my partner for 3 nights. Clean rooms, good beds, perfect location in the middle of the city. Close to Plaza del Ayuntamiento and many other buildings/plazas. I love the city, love the pension and would reccomend it to other people as well!

If you don't care for luxury this is the ideal place! Situated in the very centre of the city (100 meters from the Placa del Ayuntament) you get a clean room with shower and a decent bed for 38 euros.

I had the pleasure of booking a trip to Valencia for 18 of my high school students, another teacher and myself at this hotel. Because of the size of our group, we took up an entire floor. The price per person is incredibly reasonable and the rooms were very comfortable. The main advantage of staying at this hotel is the...

Excellent location right in the middle of the Cento Historico within 10 mins walk of all the main sites. Sparkling clean and cheap basic rooms, some ensuite and with balconies overlooking the streets below. Friendly family-run place. Perfect if you want a budget private room in the centre of Valencia.
