Very well located hostel close to shopping, cathedral and restaurants, pleasant staff. However the air conditioner was broken in the reception and there was no air conditioners in the rooms and it was very hot. Overall I would recommend if the weather was cooler.

Fantastic location not far from train station and nearest underground station from/to airport. We had an ensuite, quite clean and big enough. Wifi works best on the reception desk floor, there is no elevator and mosquitos can come without invitation. If you're unlucky to get noisy neighbours, earplugs may come handy. I would definitely come back.

Room Tip: We had a room looking to the coutyard. I imagine it could get really hot in the summer, but there wa...

If it is luxury, spas, heated pools and a gym that you are after this is not the place for you.

If you are looking for a cheap, clean place to sleep in the heart of town look no further. I spent about 5 days in this hostel last January and it is so well located that I did not even need to use any buses.

Room size was comfortable size for 2 persons. There is no elevator but my room was on the first floor. Personally I don't mind a couple of fights of steps.

Staff was friendly and helped us with directions etc.

There is no breakfast room but a few meters away from the hotel there is a choice from cheap takeaways to up market restaurants.

We even had free wifi.

If the owners see this message please say hi to Peperina (the cat) for me.

Hostal El Cid is conveniently located in the city's historic center and very close to all sorts of public transportation. It is not easily accessible for disabled people, baby/children prams, for those who hate climbing stairs or those that cannot climb stairs.

Staff is friendly and gave us lots of tips.

I have stayed in two different rooms: one ensuite with a double bed, which was cosy, well-furnished and had air conditioning. It also had curtains and blinds and was very silent. Its renovation was probably recent because everything was sort of new. The other room was a twin-bed room without a bathroom, and this room was much worse than the first one: it was clearly much older, no recent renovation, it had no air conditioning, only a really noisy fan (this can be a big problem with the Valencian Summer temperatures!); despite being on the 4th floor, the room was very noisy. Apart from that, you do not have Internet access in the room because clearly the signal is not strong enough (and it was already weak on the 3rd floor). To make matters even worse on the 4th floor, neither of the available bathrooms had ventilation nor windows, so it got extremely hot in there. The bathrooms also needes urgent refurbishing.

Regarding value for money, I would say the price is OK for the double room, but too high for the twin room. No breakfast included, but towels and linen are included in the price.

My global appreciation was good for the double room, but terrible for the twin room on the 4th floor.

Room Tip: Ask for A/C and stay away from the 4th floor
