The best hostel in Valencia overall has to be Home Youth Hostel Valencia by Feetup Hostels. Why?

Up! Hostel Valencia best hostels in Valencia

Lots of work space makes this one of the best hostels in Valencia for Digital Nomads

  • $
  • Free Coffee
  • No Curfew
  • (Huge) Common Room

Not only is Up! Hostel Valencia an absolute bargain, it’s also got a great location: inside Valencia Train Station. That might sound weird but think about it, what do you want to do when you arrive in a new city? Traipse around hot streets, navigate a transport system you’re not yet used to? No, you want to fling yourself into a room as soon as possible. That’s why this hostel is great. It’s also spacious and stylish inside, with so many places to sit and work that it’s like a library crossed with a design museum. (Except it’s also a hostel and it puts on live music some nights).

More Best Hostels in Valencia

Russafa

Russafa best hostels in Valencia

  • $$
  • Free Breakfast
  • Common Room
  • No Curfew

It’s basic, but cosy Russafa is a highly recommended hostel in Valencia. The staff are super friendly, the atmosphere is great, the location is decent. Sometimes dorms can feel a bit dark and tucked away but the rooms here are light and don’t make you feel as though you’ve woken up in a box. Another definite plus at Russafa is its cleanliness: this place is clean. It’s a priority – “We specially take care of cleanness,” they say. It’s not the coolest hostel in Valencia, but it’s warm and welcoming (and did we mention clean?) and we’ll take that over vintage tiles and exposed pipes any day.

La Casa Del Colibri Youth Hostel

La Casa Del Colibri Youth Hostel best hostels in Valencia

  • $
  • Common Room
  • No Curfew
  • Air Conditioning

La Casa Del Colibri Youth Hostel is a top hostel in Valencia; though billed as an ‘eco hostel’, it’s no-frills, cute ‘n’ cosy dorm living. It’s not central, fine, but that does mean that it’s nearer the beach, which is a 20-minute wander away. And if you like beaches, how could you resist? There is the added bonus here of a complimentary service of tea and cookies in the morning, which to be honest sounds like a start to the day that we can get on board with.

Albergue Coll Vert Park

Albergue Coll Vert Park best hostels in Valencia

  • $
  • Swimming Pool
  • Bar & Cafe
  • Beach

The downside to Albergue Coll Vert Park is that it’s located way out from the centre of Valencia. The upside to this is that you’re literally a few minutes’ walk away from a beautiful beach. Though buses to town stop at 10pm (Coll Vert has its own stop), if you’ve got your own car being out of town isn’t too much of an issue – not when there’s the sea to wake up to. It’s also a recommended hostel in Valencia for nature lovers due to the beautiful Albufera National Park being just south of here. Chuck in a pool and onsite restaurant and this sounds like a pretty sweet deal for a summertime trip to Spain.

Valencia Suits You

Valencia Suits You best hostels in Valencia

  • $$
  • Common Room
  • No Curfew
  • Complimentary Water

So this isn’t exactly a Valencia backpackers hostel, but regardless of its private rooms the big common area at Valencia Suits You is a great place to meet people from all over the world. The atmosphere is relaxed, so it’s not really a party place, but it doesn’t need to be: it’s a cute and clean place to sleep after a day exploring Valencia. Plus, it’s got free croissants and orange juice for breakfast. And just 25 minutes from the airport whilst being in the heart of town isn’t a bad shout either. ‘Complimentary Water’ may sound strange, but in Spain, this is a big deal.

Urban Youth Hostel

Urban Youth Hostel best hostels in Valencia

  • $
  • Bar & Restaurant
  • Common Area
  • Self Catering Facilities

The newly renovated Urban Youth Hostel is definitely a good choice, but really, could this be the coolest hostel in Valencia? Listen up: each dorm bunk has plugs, an electronic locker, and personal reading light – talk about luxury, right? But wait a sec: there’s a restaurant serving up Valencian and international cuisine, a bar, a comfy ‘chill zone’, a lounge with a projector, a massive and well-equipped kitchen, and rooftop terrace for some serious socialising-in-the-sun action. And the cherry on top: shared bathrooms are separated by sex (let’s be honest, when they’re not it can be awkward for everyone).

Innsa Hostel

Innsa Hostel best hostels in Valencia

  • $$$
  • Self Catering Facilities
  • Common Area
  • Heritage Building

We round up this selection of top hostels in Valencia with this little gem: Innsa Hostel. Now, it’s got no dorms but don’t write it off because it’s LITERALLY STUNNING. So it’s basically in a building with a courtyard from the 16th century in a historic part of town; apparently, it was the studio of a Renaissance artist called Juan de Juanes. But aside from the awesome heritage and dreamy simplicity, what else is there at this awesome youth hostel in Valencia? The staff: they’re super welcoming, make incredibly tasty paella and give very good tips on non-touristy events and things to do.
