Liked: Safe and secure. easy to find and when it says two minutes from the metro it means two minutes. The location is also great for a base to explore the city. The staff all spoke good english and had an answer for every question i had. The wifi works all over the building and is very fast. Clean hostel and great value for money. Also the daily pub crawl is a good crack and is definitely worth the ten euros it costs.

Disliked: The only thing I can fault is the dip/well in the middle of the showers. They could also be a bit more powerful.

Liked: I really enjoyed The Purple Nest. It was really nice. I actually booked for 2 more nights sooo... it means something. Valencia is a great city!!!!

Disliked: Maybe the fact that it s far away from the beach but actually, the city is far from the city center in general.

Liked: The staff is amazing! Very very friendly, no issue without solution, fun...just amazing!

Disliked: It seems that the hostel was equiped wth the cheepest possible equipment/ furniture and this a long time ago, which was never ever renuied. The floors in the shared bathrooms are creepy: even just after the cleaning stuff left and you now it must be clean, it looks terrifyijg.

Liked: Very friendly staff. Fit barmaid always help! Bed sheets could do with burning but as someone with low standards this is fair game for the price. Showers a bit hit and miss with temperature, but still for the dollar dollar I'd get over it.

Disliked: I literally just wrote that above. Can't be bothered to split it out...

Liked: Great kitchen and bar facilities, very clean, friendly staff.

Disliked: Communal washrooms, no locks provided. Attracted more of a partying crowd so if you're not looking for that it's not the best option.

Liked: The bathrooms were clean, the location was excellent.

Disliked: Quite a bit! The rooms are absolutely tiny - you can't even fit your things in there. There is no where to lock your bags, only a smallish locker that you have to hire a lock from reception for. You had to pay for towels. 'Breakfast' was actually just a loaf of white bread and some tea bags. The staff were ok, but not really that helpful, I asked them a few questions and they didn't really seem eager to help. The kitchen and the 'bar' are in the same place, which isn't ideal if you aren't drinking I guess. The 'bar' is really just a dining room, it has very little atmosphere, maybe if you were with a big group of mates it would be ok. I don't recommend this to small groups or solo travellers!

Liked: I dont where to start!! I was an awesome experience at the purple nest hostel! Though i was there on the weekday so there wasn't much on in-house activities but then mingling with other bag-packers and partying with them was an awesome experience!! I really made couple of good friends here and without a doubt i would recommend Purple nest hostel to everyone!! I am very sure to stay here during my next visit to Valencia (August)!!

Liked: Bright, cheerful and buzzing! Bathrooms were v. clean and beds v. comfy, though quite creaky. Overall a great place.

Disliked: Quite noisy at night, partly because of music from the bar and partly because of inconsiderate other guests! Bar staff wouldn't let us fill up water bottles at the bar even though the kitchen was closed and told us to buy some from the vending machine.
