Liked: Das Hostel liegt im wahrscheinlich angesagtesten Viertel Valencias, gut zu erreichen mit Metro und Bus. Eine große Markthalle mit frischen Lebensmitteln, sowie die besten Bars und Restaurants befinden sich direkt vor der Tür. In die Altstadt läuft man ca. 10 Minuten. Das Hostel ist sauber und modern eingerichtet: bequeme Betten, große Zimmer, sauberes Bad. Frühstück (continental breakfast) ist im Preis enthalten. Die Hostelbesitzer waren sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Da unser Rückflug erst abends war, durften wir im Hostel unsere Koffer lagern und nach dem Strand nochmal die Duschen benutzen.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

Liked: The location is good. The train station is within walking distance. There are couple of nice eateries near the hostel. Our room is clean with a view toward to the church. The breakfast they provided was simple but nice.

Disliked: We were staying in a private room and during the evening, you could hear the next door or upstairs neighbors when they were being a bit loud. Also, the lock on the door of the shared bathroom was broken.

Liked: The staff are very attentive, always helping you get places and making sure you know what Valencia has to offer.

Disliked: Walking up 8 flights of stairs to get to my room, but honestly it is probably a good thing and the most amount of exercise I have gotten in 2 months. Especially after eating my fair share of tapas and beer

Liked: the location (just outside the city centre, but still close to all facilities) and the neighbourhood, the staff who are very friendly and help you as much as they can, the cleanliness

Disliked: it was quite noisy at night, especially in the weekend (earplugs are recommended), and it's a pity that there is no communal meeting room or bar except for the breakfast room

Liked: The owner of the hostel is very friendly and accommodating. I was initially booked in for a 3 bed dorm but I arrived early in the morning and it wasn´t ready. The owner kindly offered for me to check in earlier to a private double room and have breakfast which I hadn´t paid for that day either. The breakfast is very good for a hostel breakfast. It is a very convenient location and overall great value for money.

Disliked: The room was a little hot, I think a wall fan would work better than the small air conditioners in the room.

Liked: The staff was super-friendly. Sebastian, one of the owners, was so accommodating. Everything was absolutely perfect. Breakfast was simple, fresh bread, fruit, cereal, milk, juices, coffee, tea, meats, cheeses, but excellent and all anyone needs really. An incredible value for the money.

Disliked: The only thing I might comment on is a better sort of meeting room, living room. Maybe something with a sofa or comfy chairs. However, we had no need of that when we were there, but it might be nice to have such a thing.

Liked: Very friendly and receptionist, will speak to you in Spanish if you fancy having a go but also speaks English. Close to the central train station for when you want to dump your bags and explore the city. The location is not VERY central, but you can walk there easily in ten minutes and the area of the hostel is quite sweet with windows facing onto a nice traditional square and church.

Disliked: No lift and narrow staircase, a bit awkward for big suitcases. Breakfast was very disappointing, just a few items left randomly on a little table on the first floor, it didn't make you want to sit and have breakfast at the hostel, I grabbed a pre-packaged cake and ate it while walking to the centre! :-)

Liked: Friendly staff and it's on a nice little plaza. Not too loud at night but there is a little noise. It didn't bother us though. It's a bit of a walk to the city centre but not that bad and the bus stop is just up the road. There is also a supermarket just around the corner.

Disliked: No A/C but we did stay right in the middle of summer and no alcohol allowed in the hotel but they don't sell it either, that said there is a nice bar next door and who wants to sit in a little room and drink anyway!

Liked: Great location in the centre - still quiet but with a nice couple of bars and restaurants underneath. Next to a market and 2 minutes walk to a supermarket. Free breakfast was nice and convenient. Great hostel if you just need a base to stay while roaming around Valencia

Disliked: Not really possible to cook anything in the hostel as self-catering facilities are a fridge, microwave, a chopping board and 4 knives. Lights in the bathroom went off after a minute so you constantly have to wave to keep them on. Picnic area isnt how it sounds - it is just the small common room where the breakfast is served. Wifi wasnt great and no air con in summer meant rooms were really warm. Hostel was empty during our stay so bathroom facilities were adequate but if the place was busy, going to the toilet and having a shower etc could become a bit of a nightmare
