Valencia – the third-largest city in Spain – hosts a vast array of festivals and parties throughout the year, including the country’s most pyromaniacal annual festival, Las Fallas.

If you’re heading to Valencia to see the towering bonfires or sky-illuminating firework displays during the first two weeks of March, or simply looking to party in the central neighbourhoods of El Carmen or Russafa, you’ll need an awesome hostel to rest your head. Here’s our selection of the best party hostels to stay in Valencia, all bookable on Culture Trip.

Valencia Lounge Hostel

This stylish pension offers 11 doubles in an 18th-century townhouse, all of which feature bold wall art and private balconies accessed through the building’s original French windows – none are ensuite, though. Situated in the centre of El Carmen, it’s superbly located for partying as well as sightseeing, with key attractions such as the Central Market, the Cathedral and Lonja de la Seda all less than five minutes on foot. Staff run pub crawls and can provide rental bikes and a walking tour itinerary if you’re keen.

Red Nest Hostel Valencia

Unsurprisingly, red is all around you at this arty budget base – from the walls of its friendly reception area to the mattresses in its high-ceilinged dorms. Meet fellow party-goers at the on-site bar, in the red-walled kitchen with all the mod cons, by the games room with pool and darts or up on the roof terrace. The Barrio del Carmen is a 15-minute walk away and staff often arrange group activities for guests – just ask at reception what’s on.

Russafa Youth Hostel

If you’re planning to explore the hipster neighbourhood of Russafa as well as party in El Carmen, this colourful hostel is a top choice. Situated opposite Russafa’s lively food market, accommodation is provided in jazzily-painted doubles, twins, triples or singles – or three-bed male or female-only dorms – all of which have access to shared bathrooms. A healthy breakfast of fruit juices, coffee, toast and jams is included and some rooms also have toasters, fridges and microwaves for basic self-catering.

Purple Nest Hostel Valencia

Like its red sibling, Nest’s purple-themed hostel is geared towards socializing. Facilities include an inexpensive bar with table football, a terrace with painted wooden benches and a fully equipped kitchen. Double rooms come with either private or shared bathrooms or a balcony – and the bunk-bed dormitories are mixed or female-only. Character comes from flashes of the building’s original brickwork and vaulted ceilings throughout, whilst the Turia Gardens and the bars and restaurants of La Seu – Valencia’s oldest barrio – are both within a five-minute walk.

Urban Youth Hostel Valencia

Although it occupies a 19th-century townhouse, there’s nothing old-fashioned about this boutiquey hostel’s design. Sip cocktails in a chandelier-lit lounge with crazily-angled mirrors and vintage armchairs – or prepare your own meals in a space-age kitchen of whitewashed walls and black marble. There’s also a flashily decorated dining room with a projector screen for sporting events. It’s a 50-minute walk to the Old Town or a 20-minute Metro ride from Maritim-Serreria – although just seven minutes on foot.
