The hostel has the amenities and atmosphere of a university residence. It was clean, had air conditioning and beds were comfortable. Wifi was slow but would reach our room most times. We don't mind walking so we were ok to walk the 2.5 km to the beach (25 min) and the 45-60 min to the city centre. Otherwise, a bus and a tram pass right in front. The closest grocery store is 20 min away walking. The kitchen or room don't have a fridge, but the kitchen has the basics to cook.

Auberge pas facile à trouver. Accueil pas bien indiqué. Personnel sympa mais ne parle pas français et n'accompagne pas. Comment sortir du parking ( très peu éclairé d'ailleurs), pas d'interphone. Devant l'auberge, beaucoup de place pour se garer. Chambres assez grandes et propres! Et le petit balcon est appréciable. Et surtout et c'est pour CETTE raison que l'auberge vaut le coup, c'est sa proximité à la mer :) .

this hostel is actually a dorm. the rooms are quite big and have an ensuite bathroom which was very clean. they also hand out towels. but there is no breakfast included and it takes you some time to get to the city centre of valencia, but the beach is near!
