Liked: I absolutely loved my stay here. The staff were wonderful, full of suggestions on what to do and directions on how to get around. The location was so easy to find and right by the central markets which was wonderful. The kitchen and common areas were great to socialise and the rooms were really clean, I loved having single beds instead of bunks. The showers were spatious and had some hooks. I just loved everything about this place.

Disliked: Bronte left no negative feedback.

Liked: Location is great. 10min walk from station, near central plazas, very near central market, restaurants/cafes/horchaterias. Takes about 40min to walk to CAC, about 70min walk to beach. Hostel is small and cosy, 2x free computers for internet, wifi works in dorm rooms. Beds are all singles (no bunk beds) with lockers (free with €2 deposit) in each room. Rooms have airconditioners and balcony. Good security with keycard access to hostel and room, 24hr reception, communal lockers also if required. Shower good hot water. Didn't use kitchen, but looks adequate and lots of fridge space.

Disliked: 2 toilets & 2 showers (quiet when I was there, but maybe a stretch when busy), not much shower space, not many powersockets in rooms. Staff are fine but not particularly engaging nor warm.

Liked: Location is great.

Disliked: Staff was so busy and a little bit confused due to the high season, you don't have a possibility to enter with anyone who is not living at the hostel - good for the safety however a bit too strict for me.

Liked: it is located in the city center

Disliked: my room was on the first floor, near the common area, so it was noisy during the night and morning. on the first floor you have to pass through the common area to go from your room the the toilets and showers.

Liked: Very clean and nicely decorated. It is far away from the beach but very close to a lot of cathedrals and other sights. They had a scale to weigh your luggage, although it did cost to use it. Also, they had these sketch pad binders that you could doodle in or write messages and it was really cool to flip through them and see what other travellers have put in there

Disliked: They made a big deal on their page about having no bunk beds, and I thought being in a three bed room would be nice, but it was just tiny. I would rather be in a 10 bed dorm with room to move around then something so small. Also, there was no air conditioning while I was there which was a huge reason I booked it. So a small room with no air conditioning and no windows was a bit claustrophobic. There was only two toilets and two showers for the whole floor and they were in the same bathroom. Add to that the three different staff members I met while Iwas there were consistently rude and not helpful and i had the worst stay since I've been in Spain. Oh, and the lockers to keep your valuables in cost 2 euros for every time you wanted to open them.

Liked: Friendly staff, clean kitchen, excellent location in the old city of Valencia. The rooms are modern and well-decorated, with lockers and individual reading lights.

Disliked: The lounge area is on the bottom floor and all the floors above wrap around courtyard-style, so that music and sound from the bottom floor echo up through all the other floors. Most of the rooms don't have windows, which can be depressing and makes them stuffy in hot weather.

Liked: Great location, very close to restaurants and attractions. Rooms are a good standard, decorated well.

Disliked: On the first night we were given a room on the same level as the reception and breakout areas. It was noisy all night with people coming and going until around 5am, which meant that we didn't sleep much until the early morning, at which point the noise began again in the common areas at around 8am. Staff were nice and managed to move us to one of the upstairs rooms, which was much better, but I would recommend requesting one of the upstairs rooms upon checkin. They also only have two communal toilets and showers on each floor which doesn't work well when the hostal is fully booked. The cleaning wasn't that great in the bathrooms either.
