The building consists of 2 floors, comprising a total of 300 m2. Located on Calle Albareda, has a capacity of 42 beds, distributed between the two plants, in different rooms of varying capacities (4, 6, 12 and 20 people). Complying with the regulations, the local is entitled to host disabled people. The place has 5 bathrooms, distributed over two floors.
The Hostel Box is an innovative product that offers clients the experience of sleeping in single or double beds in a shared space with more people, as in other hostels, but with something more.

The only one in Valencia with AIR-CONDITIONING in the rooms at night and with BAR to meet other travellers like you.
Located in the heart of Valencia, on a quiet square close to the Turia’s riverbed (the biggest park in town). Just a few minutes walk from the city´s most interesting cultural and architectural sights (Cathedral, Basilica, Plaza de la Reina, City Council Square, Barrio del Carmen…). The hostel is also well connected to the beach, the train station, the old city, the City of Arts and Sciencies and the best places to go out, from traditional ‘tapas’ bars to the hippest nightlife. The location couldn’t be better: we are between the commercial area and the bohemian district of ‘El Carmen’.
The Purple Nest is the best place for backpackers to enjoy Valencia in Summer. Don’t worry about the heat!! We are just a few meters away from the bus stop to the beach, and in our hostel you won’t suffer the high temperatures from outside, thanks to our air conditioning at night, which make the Purple Nest the most refreshing hostel in Valencia!!
We have female and mixed dorms with 4, 6, 8 and 10 beds. Big clean communal (single sex) bathrooms are located on each floor. All our rooms have air-conditioning.
Check-out time is at 11:00am and check-in is anytime after 1:00pm. If you arrive earlier, you can use our storage room and the communal area.
Our hostel has an easy, laidback atmosphere with warm and helpful staff on hand to help steer you to the beaches, bars, sites and sounds of Valencia and get you anything you need including free city maps, info and reservations for walking tours and bike rental.
Our bar offers you the chance to meet people from all over the world, have a couple of the cheapest pints in town and enjoy the great atmosphere of the Valencian night.
