What to consider when booking a hostel in Valencia
The majority of the best hostels in Valencia were already reviewed highly, which made the job of choosing them easier.
However, there are certain factors that contribute to a hostel being better than others. There are also personal factors which you need to take into consideration too.
I have outlined a few of these below. It’s best to bear these in mind, before you book accommodation in Valencia, and anywhere else for that matter!
Check out time – The standard check-out time for hostels is 10:00 am. This is the case in most countries, although it can vary from place to place. It is worth finding out what this is beforehand, just in case you have any late nights planned! If you want to check out later, some hostels can arrange this, but you will need to speak to them while you are there.
Free breakfast – This isn’t offered in every hostel, but most hostels offer a free breakfast nowadays. This is a great thing to look out for if you’re backpacking through Spain, as you are getting one meal of the day for free. This will save you money, and allow you to spend more money on other activities during your trip!
Free wifi – Every hostel has wifi these days, but not all of them offer it for free! It’s not uncommon for it to be charged. Most Valencia hostels will offer free wifi, but it is worth checking this beforehand. Otherwise, you could end up forking out a tidy sum just to get online!
Laundry services – Whether this is a critical factor depends on how long you are travelling. If you’re on a long term trip, it can make a world of difference, and ave you trekking around the city trying to find a laundrette. You will have to pay your wash your clothes, but having in the facilities in the hostel is a luxury you shouldn’t take for granted!
Kitchen – Staying at a hostel with a kitchen can make a big difference to your budget. It’s worth checking whether the hostel has a kitchen, as there are some in that don’t! The ability to cook your meals is not only convenient, but it will also save you a lot of money that otherwise be spent on eating out!
So, there’s my list of the best hostels in Valencia!
There’s plenty of choice, but hopefully, my guide will point you in the right direction and allow you to make an informed decision.
