Center Valencia Youth Hostel
Ranked #98 of 180 Speciality Lodging in Valencia
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We arrived at Center Valencia very late at night for a one night stay. We were in an 8 bed room, where only two girls were sleeping. However, the two girls had completely spread out and we struggled to get to our beds because it was such a tight squeeze between the beds. We went down stairs to eat and use the computers, but the table space was so cramped that we were getting hit left and right. The crowd seemed very energetic and lively, probably between the ages of 18 -20. The staff was overly helpful and even made sure we woke up in time for our morning ferry.

I stayed here for three nights in early july. I had a 4 bed dorm but was alone most of the time. The hostel was clean and the staff really friendly. My room and sheets were clean. The location was great. There was sufficient cooking and common room area. Small but sufficient breakfast included. I am shocked to read the other reviews, the people at the hostel couldn't do enough to accommodate me and it was a fantastic part of my holiday.

I stayed here for two nights in May in a 6 bedded dorm. The room was big with an en-suite only problem the door didn't close properly, but they can get this fixed. Each bed had a locker that can fit your bag in, but you do have to put a 1/2 euro in (you do get this back each time you open the locker) and have a personal light and plug socket.

The common areas was really nice here especially the roof top terrace. The staff were extremely friendly that helped you with any question that you had asked them.

The Center Valencia was good value for money. Its location, right in the centre of the old city, was great. The staff that I met were very friendly and helpful. I found everything very clean. The breakfast, included in the room cost, was nothing to write home about but I appreciated it. I appreciated the free computers and the WiFI. The hostel was not at all busy the night that I stayed. I think that if more bunks had been occupied in my dorm I wouldn't have been so happy, particularly with the rather cramped all-in-one shower/toilet/wash basin arrangement.

This place was horrible. My whole time in Spain I never stayed in place as bad as this one.

The smell in this place was disgusting and the rooms, washrooms, and sheets were even more so.

Would not recommend anyone to stay there.

Impossible to get to if you are driving.

Booked this place because it was cheap and conveniently located. You don't expect much from a hostel, and this met all expectations.
But, honest to Jehovah, something has gone down in their plumbing system. When you enter the front door you get a whiff of something, but it's obscured by pine-o-clean or some industrial strength odour. Our room had something strange hanging about it as well. As soon as the bathroom door opened it became apparent what we were dealing with.
The room is a matchbox, but within it is housed the vilest, filthiest, most foul, wretched smell known to man (unless you've smelt half the streets in Barcelona). It seems to emanate mostly from the drains.
The cleaning lady barged in one morning, and despite not understanding a word of each other's lingo, it was able to be established that we both appreciated the futility of her efforts.
This is one place where you could drop the most rotten deuce of your life and it could only improve upon the olfactory nightmare that is the center hostel bathroom.
To make matters worse and only add to the drama, the bathroom door has a habit of swinging open, circulating the rancid aromas throughout the room and greater Old Valencia town, so it must be pulled shut with gusto to keep the tendrils of hydrogen sulfide, scatols, and organic chemicals still unknown to science, at bay.
Good place otherwise. Oh and one final thing, the automatic coffee machine in the kitchen downstairs that is with the free breakfast is very likely plumbed into the same system as the bathroom.
