Best hostel in Valencia
I stayed at multiple hostels in Valencia and this was by far the best. It was SO comfortable. Rooms were spacious. They also were set up in a way with lots of corridors sort of so you really didn’t even see most of the people in your room! Lots of privacy. Plus curtains on the beds, plugs and lights by every bed. You get your own drawer under your bed for your stuff. The bathrooms were FAB! Spacious. Nice showers (HUGE) with great hot water and water pressure. Blow dryers and even hair straighteners were provided! I took one of the best showers in my life and had great hair afterwards. It was such a nice reset when traveling for so long. The kitchen snd lounge area is great snd they even have snacks and ice cream and little conveniences for sale do you didn’t have to go out if you needed something like that. Overall, fantastic!

I recommend it
I've been to many hostels and I liked this one very much. The staff are nice and the beds have their own curtain and locker. Also there are enough toilets and showers, so you never have to wait for using them. However, the only negative I found is there is no aircon in the toilets area, so in summer you get to sweat a lot when you go there (in the rooms the aircon is perfect).
