Liked: Location was great. Close to metro, close to old town. Quite valuable for the price. If you are happy to find your own way around with no guidance from staff a pretty good place to stay.

Disliked: The staff were completely inattentive. Ignored you when you stood at the desk, misinformed, totally unwilling to help you. When you ask questions like ´where is good to eat?´they respond éverywhere´with an annoyed look on their face. Showers very rarely had hot water.

Liked: The lady working there when we were checking in were really nice and helpful. But later in the day she was gone, and the other receptionist was not very nice nor helpful. The location was very good, and it was cheap!

Disliked: The beds were not very comfortable, and the sheets did not even fit the mattress. Me and my friend tried to fit the sheet onto the bed in half an hour before we gave up. Also, the bathroom was not that clean and there was only ONE sink and one mirror, which is not enough at a hostel that accomodates that many people. We wanted to rent bikes, but all the bikes were rent out for the whole weekend, which was a disappointment too.

Liked: very central and affordable. the kitchen helped allot to save some money :) the staff was very friendly. all in all good.

Disliked: the hostel lost its charm due to cleanliness. our room was empty, 4 beds and 4 boxes with blankets inside, that's all. no table, no chair, no closet. the breakfast there is not recommendable, bring your own.

Disliked: the shower room's doors where to tall for me, so I think people could see me when I was taking a shower. the doors where a bit tricky to open and the beds were very average, I had better sleep in other hostels.

Liked: the cheapest place where to stay nowadays in Valencia. Clean place and very well located, close to the river, close to the center (Ciutat Vella). It was possible to meet nice people... what else?!!

Disliked: Except that the linen was too short for the matress, and that we have to spend half an hour to deal with it, everything went good!

Liked: -

Disliked: On check in the girl at reception was rude, impatient and told us nothing about the hostel or Valencia. Not even where to find our linen. The beds are incredibly uncomfortable, squeaky plastic and metal keep everyone up all night with ear plugs. The bunks are poorly designed with the lower having a 2 foot crawl space and no chance to sit up or move. Lockers are located under the lower bunk and have to be pulled into the only available space between the beds to be accessed. You have to wait your turn to get to your bag and there is so much wasted space in the dorm. The kitchen was lacking, there were about 4 forks floating around and no kettle to boil water. Valencia was quite booked out when we visited and there wasn't much available. If you can find somewhere else I recommend you stay there. This place isn't run for the traveller, it's run to make money.

Liked: Relaxed atmosphere, very friendly staff. The bunk beds are semi private as on one side they have a board, so you didn't feel so exposed to the whole room when sleeping. Clean, spacious showers.

Disliked: Wifi only works on ground floor. Kitchen isn't very well equipped. (could do with a big frying pan or two)
