Russafa Youth Hostel
Ranked #21 of 179 Speciality Lodging in Valencia
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 24 November 2013

The Russafa Hostel is located on a beautiful & quiet square in the L'Eixample district of Russafa. It is recommended for those with a youthful spirit who wish to experience daily life in Valencia; as it is located within walking distance of the local market and pedestrian streets with cafes and small shops. The bustle of the central historical area and the Turia Arts & Science complex are safely away (about a 30 min walk). The staff (family owned) was extremely friendly and knowledgeable. The bedding & towels were first class cotton!! The breakfast was very nice and plentiful. Free tea is provided during the day, as well as cooking facilities (market fresh food!). Everything is spotless-clean. The owners should drop the "Youth" part as it is not intended for dorm-seeking backpackers. Having said this, it is not for the fanciful either as washrooms are shared and there is no lift. I stayed for a week and hope to be back soon. NOTE: Valencia is best visited outside the summer season. ADRIAN

Room Tip: Upper floor rooms facing the church roof top for the view!

My experience with this hostel wasn't that nice. I stayed there for 3 nights. The man at the reception was really impolite, always yelling for some reason. After staying there for 2 nights, i came back the third night because i didn't have a place to stay due to unfortunate circumstances, i asked him if i can stay there because i don't have a place to sleep. He was claiming there was no free beds, although the first 2 nights i was there the hostel was almost empty (i slept alone in a 4 bedroom). I was begging him if i could stay just for 1 night and that i'll pay more if i have to and after 15 minutes talking he finally let me. Guess what, i was alone in the room again! But the hostel is in good location and the rooms are nice. Breakfast was included in price but there wasn't a lot to eat. All in all, i wouldn't stay in this hostel again.

Lo primero que querriamos es pedirte disculpas por el trato que se te dió en nuestro establecimiento.
Por otra creemos que ha habido un error en las fechas que estuviste ya que en diciembre del 2012 no albergamos a nadie de Croacia.

Desde noviembre de 2012 ha habido un cambio de gerencia en nuestro establecimiento y esos comportamientos que indicas han quedado totalmente desterrados.
Por un lado se mejoró el desayuno, siendo este ahora mismo bastante completo.
Por otro lado, para nosotros la prioridad es el cliente y que este se sienta como en casa. No siempre lo logramos, pero un alto porcentaje de personas se van contentas del trato recibido, como así lo atestiguan los porcentajes de de satisfacción con el staff en los buscadores donde estamos.

Por lo que nos gustaria mucho que si vuelves a Valencia pases por nuestro hostel para ver si podemos mejorar tu anterior estancia.

Te reitero nuestras disculpas

Un saludo

The Russafa Guest House is a great place when you want to visit Valencia. The accomodation is great and it's near the old town. The bus that will take you to the beach is just a street away. The hostel is very clean, tidy, the rooms are very nice and comfortable. Bathrooms are clean and comfortable. The host of the place is a wonderful man who takes care of all the guests and explains everything about the Valencia. The place is quiet and after the whole day spent in the city you can really find some relax in the Russafa. Another advantage is that the market is very close and downstairs you can find a very nice restaurant.

Room Tip: Every room in the hostel is different and designed in other way so every room is nice :-)

The hostel is in a great neighbourhood (Rusafa) which is very close to the center. There are plenty of restaurants near and the market allows you to buy cheap local goods all day. The hostel is not too big so it cant get crowded even if its full. The rooms and facilities are modern, tidy and clean, the breakfast is enough. The best is Jose, the owner who is an extra helpful and super great host!
We really recommend this place!

Room Tip: get an upper storey room

Stayed here over la tomantina. Great location in a cheaper part of town not too far away from the main attractions. Staff extremely helpful n always suggesting places to eat drink n see as well as full instructions to bunol. Rooms are a standarded basic hostel double n shared bathrooms could do with a bit more attention. Free breakfast best I've had in any hostel through europe asia and Australia

I stayed 3 weeks at Russafa Youth Hostel. I came here to work and i had to stay in a Hostel before I moved into an Apartement. This was the best choice i made.
It isnt that big but very comfortable and cosy. The Rooms are very clean and they were all in a different funny design. I stayed in a 3 Bed Room and I met a lot of new people almost every day because most of them stayed like 2 nights.The Breakfast was very good in a nice and big Breakfast room. You had everything you need.
The Owners were the best about the Hostel. They were very helpful and explained me everything. Both made me feel like home and they were always there for you if you needed anything.
The hostel is located about 15 min from the city centre and not that far from the beach. Beside it there is a big market with fresh fruit, vegetables, etc. You have everything you need nearby.
For me it was the best start in Valencia!
