All the comfort for a fraction of the price
I’ve stayed in a lot of hostels and this definitely ranks at the top. The staff are friendly, the building is beautiful and old but modern inside, they have a great public area, and all their amenities are fully up to standard. They were happy to provide extra blankets and even have personal electric fans upon request. The bathrooms are cleaned twice a day and overall everything is tidy and clean. They have lots of excursions like free walking tours, a pub crawl, and a tapas tour. They provide a wonderful breakfast spread (fruit, eggs, various types of bread, yoghurt, tomatoes, meats, and cheese) as well as free dinner a few days a week and paella on Saturday’s. They even have bike rentals! This is by far the most comfortable hostel I’ve stayed in for a long time, and would definitely go back. Great location too!

Convenient, cosy and cheap!
Nice location close to the old city centre and Turia Gardens and about 20 minute walk to the main train station. Excellent breakfast with ample choice. Nice lounge area to socialise, have a beer and relax. Free walking tours and bike hire available. Shower rooms and toilets clean. Each bed has a curtain and it's own light and plug socket for privacy and a large storage box to lock away personal belongings. Room quite hot in summer so had fans and kept windows open but wasn't overly noisy. Excellent value for money.

Made my trip wonderful
The reception was friendly and helpful. The bar-dining area was a great place to meet and greet. They host game nights, watch movies and do other activities. Breakfast can be included in the price, but you can also buy other meals from them - I tried the paella and it was delicious! The beds were clean and comfy, so were the rooms and the bathrooms. The wifi is actually working! One night a roommate left the light on and another night another roommate was packing his things at 3 am, but that's not the hostel's fault, such things are to be expected in hostels, and they also suggest you tell the reception of such cases. They are serious with silence matters and they may even call the police. You can rent a bike from them for just 9 euros. Location 10 mins from the main square and cathedral, very beautiful next to the dried river Turia which is turned into a lovely park. Join the free tour, it's really worth it!
