The Eurobar Cafe & Hotel. It's quite close to the center of town, and near the bus stop and train station.

People staying here:

  • dons
  • bringert
  • beschmi
  • naur (4 nights, 9th-13th)


I (pepe) will go YHA in order to save some Euros (I need to stay for four nights, due to the few Valencia-London flight choices). If anyone else will go to YHA too, we could make a joint reservation.

The hostel seems to be quite close to center and train station too.

People staying at a YHA hostel:

  • pepe
  • ndm (3 nights, 10th-13th)
  • waern (4 nights, 9th-13th)
  • Ketil (probably - 9-12th)
