We got an enormous room on the same floor as the reception, with flat screen, minibar, huge bathroom and iron bed, for 48euros! You can really tell that the owners love their place, from the care and love they have put. There is free internet, it's just 5-10mins walking from the old centre, Plaza Nueva and the best pintxos ever....

The hostal Begona was a good choice to stay in Barcelona, it is fairly central and not too expensive. The service is fine and friendly (not extraordinary), our room was fairly quiet. The connectivity was granted by WIFI and Internet workstations. It was a convinient stop there, but not more

We stayed 4 nights at Hostal Begona during Easter. The main advantage of this hostel is the location. It is situated in the centre of Bilbao, a few steps from the old town and within an easy walking distance from everything. We almost did not use the excellent public transport of Bilbao. We had booked one of the mini suites....

Well-located in a pedestrian-only alley off a busy street. Rooms are small and unremarkable. Bathrooms are fine. Free computers with internet access and elevator makes it convenient. Staff are really nice. My only complaint is the fact that the first room we got stank heavily of old stale smoke even though the hotel is now non-smoking. We asked for another...

My husband and I just finished up a two week honeymoon in Northern Spain, and Bilbao was one of our stops. This place is in a great location near the old part of Bilbao (across the river), and it is about 20 minutes walk from the Guggenheim and the Museo de Bellas Artes. Our room was huge-it had three beds...

This place was very cute and colorful and the staff was very nice. There was always someone to ring you into the building and greet you with a smile and "Hola" when you arrived. Bilbao is a lovely city. We walked to the Guggenheim and it was close to the ornate Cafe Iruna for flavorful pintxos. The shower was very...

We had booked 2 nights and returned for another night. The rooms were very clean and reasonable roomy. Linoleum floors, which we liked. The bathrooms were very good. The location is perfect, 1 min to tram, 2 min to train, 3 min to old town, 10 min to Guggenheim. (someone wrote 30 min, they must have got lost). The staff...

“We had what is clearly the family room, with two double beds, and another single. It was on the same level as the reception, and the shower was larger than usual since it was handicap accessible. There was lots of space to spread out and repack our bags for our trip home.”
