Helpful Information about Valencia Hostels

Here are some quick facts about hostels in Valencia Spain to help you in your search.

  1. Cheap and Top Hostels sell out fast: Valencia has only a total of 18 Hostels. There is no huge hostels and you will not have the same selection like in Barcelona and Madrid. Therefore, better hurry and pick a good one. Same as in many other cities, the weekends are very busy. Best would be to book your Valencia hostel 3-4 weeks before your travel date.
  2. Age Restrictions: Unfortunately some hostels in Valencia have age restrictions. The restrictions is usually for people under 18 without an adult and travelers of +45 years. Please make sure you check these kind of restrictions before booking.
  3. Beach Hostels in Valencia: Yes, Valencia has its own beach which is worth a visit. However, you won't find any beach hostels in Valencia. The closest hostel near the beach is Urban Youth Hostel. It is a great hostel for young backpackers and the staff is super friendly and helpful.
  4. Best areas to stay in Valencia: In my opinion, the best places to stay in Valencia is the old town and Russafa. The old town is the very city center. Russafa is just nearby and considered the local, and hipster area of Valencia. It has many super cool bars, cafés and restaurants. Prices are also much more affordable than the old town. So yes, I always choose Russafa when visiting Valencia.
  5. Special Events such as Las Fallas in March and Semana Santa in March/ April: Las Fallas is one of the best festivals in Spain and maybe even Europe. Experiencing Semana Santa is one of the absolute highlights and pleasures visiting Spain. Keep in mind, prices will be higher and I really recommend booking ASAP.

Valencia hostels can be found all throughout the city -- there is at least one about a ten-minute walk from the train station. However, don't confuse "hostel" ("albergue" in Spanish) with the Spanish word "hostal" (a hostal is a family run cheap hotel with dorms, where you won't find the same social environment as a hostel ("albergue").

The city can be reached by pretty much any kind of transportation (airplane, train, bus, car, and bus-ferry-bus). Generally the city is easier to get around by foot if you are staying in the historic center, while the beach is easily reached by metro. The transportation is fairly good in Valencia and not too pricey (although the metro does not go through the city center). If you are driving a vehicle and go to the beach, beware -- some of the beaches have parking spots monitored by children you pay to "protect" your car (we were with locals when this occurred, so it was not foreigners getting duped). The city is really safe (so long as you are not completely clueless about walking around a large city).

The people are very friendly in Valencia, but don't wear other football teams' jerseys here, as the Spanish are very passionate about their soccer/ football teams -- a shouting match may ensue, but nothing more. They speak Catalan (a Spanish-French mix), however, they all know Castilian Spanish (the Spanish that is taught in schools).

More about Las Fallas Festival and Semana Santa

The best time to visit Valencia is during Las Fallas (they display painted paper mache sculptures throughout the city center, and eventually burn all of them; although not as well known internationally as other festivals in Spain, it is the largest festival in Spain). Las Fallas occurs the week before Semana Santa (Easter week) in March.

During the festival they have the gorgeous sculptures they've worked on for an entire year, astonishing fireworks, street food, parades, pageants. It is also a week of repentance (you will see people dressed in garb similar to the KKK, but they are NOT part of the KKK/anything like it, it is a costume they have used for much longer than the KKK; it is simply to hide the identity of the repenter as the repentance is between the repenter and God). While Las Fallas is an amazing festival, Semana Santa is a tad scary (they run a fake Jesus on an open sedan chair through the streets of the city center while people throw things at him and shout).
