Hostel for a great time with a good location
Purple Nest is a great hostel to socialise, meet new people. With big common areas and a bar they set a good mood for a party. The location just on the edge of the old town is perfect, i highly recommend hiring a bike to get around, bike hire is just nearby. Security is very good just bring a lock for your locker. The staff were really friendly and helpful. The dorm was good and the bathroom was well maintained.
The only reason I didn't give this hostel five stars is because of the prostitute like room we got. It was painted in blue and the light was pink. Who came up with this idea? I mean, pink? You couldn't really see anything at night (air con was great though). Oh yeah, and the kitchen was way too small and the fridge was pretty nasty and didn't close properly because it was too small for so many people. But actually this hostel was great! The staff were so nice and the atmosphere was great there. It's the best hostel to meet new people from all over the world and that's exactly why we came to Valencia. The hostel is in the centre so you didn't need taxis or metro or whatever. There are a lot of showers so you never have to wait and a big mirror so every girl can have her own spot. Oh, and the terrace is fun as well. I really loved the common areas and all the people hanging around there. Great hostel.
Wonderful, very fun, and pretty good position
Purple Nest is a wonderful and very good looking hostel, and it's really a very funny place to meet other people from all over the world, because of the common kitchen and dining-room with billiard table and bar. The staff is very very friendly and always ready to help you and give you information. The location is perfect to enjoy valencia's nights and days (it's in the city centre).
Purple Nest is a very new and modern hostel not far from the city center. It was very clean and the staff was always friendly. But because of the big capacity and the modern style of the hostel, the typical atmosphere of an average hostel got lost. There were too many people, the kitchen was too small! and the air conditioning too cold at night!
But all in all a good and very cheap hostel.
Purple Nest Hostel is in a good location close to the old historic centre of Valencia. It's quite a walk from the train station, and a bus ride away from the intercity bus station (bus number eight). It is close to the main shopping area and nightlife, but not so close to the beach.
The hostel attracts a young crowd of backpackers and has a very lively atmosphere. All the facilities are new, as the hostel has not been open long. However, the owners try very hard to create a funky theme, but some may feel it comes across as tacky or annoying. Everything is bright, and the lights in our room were purple.
The hostel has good security, with keycards required for each room, and personal lockers as well as safe deposits. The dorms are spread over quite a few floors, but there is a lift to make it easier. Reception is very busy, so expect a wait when checking in or asking a question. However, once you can speak to them, the staff is friendly and helpful -- offering advice on a place to eat, sights to see, and where to get buses around town.
Overall, the facilities at the hostel are good. There is a bar on the ground floor to have a drink and a chat with other travelers, but it closes quite early so you will probably want to continue the drinking elsewhere. There is a well-equipped kitchen (not common in Spain), with all the essentials to cook a few meals. Internet access is available, but not free.
The dorm rooms are very clean and sheets are provided. The beds are new and comfortable. Dorms are also far enough away from the common rooms so that they are quiet if you want an early night. Although the hostel is advertised as air conditioned, not all rooms have air conditioning, but the common areas do.
The toilets are bright and bubbly. There are showers and toilets on every floor, so there's never a wait. They are usually clean, but the poor design of the showers means there is always a puddle of water on the floor. This makes it hard to get changed or go to the toilet without getting everything else wet.
