  • My train arrived in Valencia at 4 plus in the morning and I thought it would be a 7 hour wait before the check in. However, I had sent an email to the hostel to enquire and they allowed me to check in whenever I arrived. This gesture is very much appreciated. The lady doing the night shift that night allocated me a bed that was not taken so that I could check in early :) Location is pretty good, room is clean and wifi was very good. Also a very affordable price :)

  • Great place to just sleep for the night. Bathrooms are beautiful and rooms are very clean. Not at all recommended as a Hostel to meet other people. Walking tours that I saw posters for in the Hostel were not relevant and I did not seem to meet anyone my age. Good thing I was traveling with my boyfriend because this was a great place to relax and have our own time.

  • The Hostel itself was quite nice and well located, but it is not necessarily a hostel to come into touch with people. The common room is the only room with good wifi, so everbody sits there staring at the phone instead of meeting new people. The tables you sit on to eat are way too small. It makes it almost impossible to sit down with other people. So if you come to Valencia together with some friends, it is gonna be a nice place to stay, if you are travelling on your own, I'd choose differently

  • Close to the city center, but that's about the only thing this hostel has going for it. The atmosphere is non existent and is particularly bad for solo travelers, and the beds are extremely squeaky and uncomfortable. Additionally, there is only working WiFi on the ground floor (inexcusable) On the bright side, the bathrooms are spacious, the hostel is very clean, the location is excellent, and it is a quiet place that is good for resting up. Overall, I would not recommend staying here.

  • It was clean and had nice facilities. It was close to downtown if you like to party at night time, but it was also quiet if you don't like to (like me). Every bunk comes with a locked cubby, which was nice and spacious!

  • The River Hostel is a nice modern hostel with clean rooms and good facilities. It is located right next to the historic section of Valencia and the nice park along the former riverbed.
