This is a good ostel in the centre of Valencia . The position is perfect , the rooms are big , the bed is soft . Ideal for joung people in particular for big group of friends . Quesro ostello é abbastanza pulito ed economico , gode di una posizione centralissima ed é ideale per dei giovani con poche pretese.

The basic 4 bed dorm was extremely tiny, possible ok for 2 people but absolutely not 4. Squeaky beds. There wasn't any space to move around. Also the light was very poor, the walls red and the window was facing the street. It was very suffocating. There are no power plugs next the bed or lights. The place was clean....

The bartender was awesome, I really enjoyed the mexican beer with salt and lime. The only thing that was a problem for me was how dark it would get at night. I was on the first floor, and the hallway was almost pitch black. The lights weren't automatic, they were just off. I had to get out my flashlight to...
