A great place to stay! The ac works amazing, there are no bunk beds, so no drunk people crawling climbing up waking everyone up at night, it's in a great part of town and a great stag! I would stay here again if I came to Valencia.
Great location and great hostel
I don't have anything bad to say about this hostel. The staff were always accommodating, the kitchen was well equipped, free tea and coffee 24/7, the showers had plenty of hot water, the rooms were nice and the wifi for the most part worked well.
The small Home Youth Hostel in Valencia will be a nice change for those who are doing extensive traveling and are tired of hostels that function as mass sleeping facilities. The check-in area of the hostel has many flyers that publicize local activities. We took advantage of the free walking tour (for which you tip the guide) and a flamenco show that gave us admission and a drink for a reasonable price.
It is located near La Plaza De La Reina, as are most of the hostels in Valencia. Its a long walk from both the bus station and the two train stations (which are on opposite ends of the city center,) but if you arent up to the walk, there is a bus that will take you nearby. At that point, you should follow the directions very carefully. They are accurate, but the center of Valencia can be a bit of a maze and one wrong turn can be critical.
Rooms and Bathrooms
The rooms have three beds per room, with no bunk beds. They are sufficiently large rooms, thus avoiding the stuffy air from a crowded sleeping room. The rooms have balconies and look out onto the plaza. This can pose a bit of a problem, as there is usually someone talking or drinking on the plaza until about 1 a.m. There are two showers and toilets per floor, and they are unisex (but private). They were always clean and the water in the shower is hot.
There is a common area on the 1st floor, with plenty of couch and chair space, as well as a dining table, kitchen, and three computers with free internet use. There is a sufficient number of available outlets in the common area, and there are outlets in the sleeping rooms. Breakfast is served for free in the morning, including white bread, margarine, jam, corn flakes, chocolate rice cereal, coffee, and tea. Wi-Fi is free and usually strong, but there will be some hiccups that make you want to scream. There is a laundry on premises where you can pay to wash and dry your clothes; soap is not included. There is also a laundromat nearby.
The only issues are the same with any hostel in Valencia. It is fairly far away from the stations, there are no supermarkets or even small markets nearby, and good luck finding anything open between 2 and 6 p.m. Aside from that, it is a pleasant place for a few nights' rest.
I've traveled almost the whole Europe and this is THE BEST hostel I've stayed in. The location cannot be better, Mercado Central is just across the street, all sights and bars are next door. The beds are very comfortable, they have free towels and internet, the breakfast is included in price. The staff is great, speaks great english and is very helpful. The place is cosy and cheap, it really feels like at home. This is a perfect place for each traveler.
Bad -- price, no air con. good -- friendly staff, communal area
I was there with two friends in the middle of the summer heat. We got a room on the uppermost floor, facing inwards. It must have been more than 40 degrees there, which made sleeping pretty much impossible. I'm sure each of us left a liter of sweat in the beds each night, which would explain the ugly smell of the place (since everyone that tries to sleep there does that). Why is there no Air con? Especially for the price you pay for this hostel (it is very expensive compared to others) this is really ridiculous. On the light side is the incredibly helpful staff (however, not for arranging a better room) and the very relaxed communal area. But also here, for the price that you pay free coffee/tea and toast should be offered.
Comfortable, relaxed place to stay
I stayed here for three nights in May in a room facing outwards (right onto La Lonja) and an another night in one of the interior rooms. The hostel is clean, only four beds per room, and comfortable with fans in the rooms. There is a bathroom on each floor (two showers, two toilets). There was definitely a large mix of ages, though on my second stay it seemed like we had an influx of American students. All in all my impression is that this place is more laid back than a party atmosphere, though people were friendly. The common area was a great place to relax and the kitchen facilities were good. They do ask you to be quiet in the common room late at night, but this is out of consideration of the other guests as many of the rooms face the interior courtyard. I highly recommend this place -- comfort and cleanliness cannot be overrated when you are tired from hopping from place to place!
A lot of charm invested in the decoration of the place, great atmosphere, friendly staff, clean sharing-facilities. we loved the kitchen and the "living room." one of the best backpackers hostels we have ever been to. The only flaw was the room we got. it had no outdoor windows. However, we spent most of the time on the beach or sightseeing (it's really a laid-back city).
Great hostel. Very safe, secure with a security system, colourful and cheery. almost every room has its own balcony like all the old school Spanish buildings which is fantastic. They have a television corner which was a great hanging out area to yell and bond over the world cup during (we went during june 2006). Vending machine has cheap beer, if i'm not wrong, it's cheaper then a can of Pepsi! Strong hot shower, very clean bathrooms, one can almost sleep in there! kitchen's more of a corner but everything is provided. they were doing something to the roof when i was there, think they are creating a sunroof for chilling or something. And, most important of all, it's near the clubbing/pubbing areas, you know,classic European back alley bars. One can get pissed and still be able to stumble back safely saving a good amount on cab. Beds were extremely comfy, cleaner than mine back home!
