I stayed in a triple room with 2 friends for 2 nights. It's a 5-7 min walk from the bus station and right by one of the liveliest streets in Bilbao for bars. The bathrooms were all v.clean and there were more than enough (I never had to wait) - definitely much better than an average hostel. The room was...

This place has a great location, close to metros and close to main monuments and museums. The rooms, common areas and showers are always extraordinary clean but I have to say it was a bit louder than I would've wanted. Even after 10PM, the rooms surround the common area so there is no escaping the noise from other guests or...

Location. About 7 minutes from Termibus. It's easy to find and also near the Athletic Bilbao Stadium (San Mamés). Also near Poza St where grocery stores can be found. Close to the river area so you can walk by the river and in 15-20 minutes you´re infront of the Guggenheim Museum. Value for money. 15euros is cheap if you are...

I spent 3 nights in the hostel in a 9 bed mixed dorm. The room and amenities were good enough and were what I was expecting for the cheapest option for my stay in Bilbao. The staff were, however, very unhelpful and rude. On my last night the sheets had been cleared from my bed and someone else had taken...

Two of us were in one of the double rooms in the building next door. When we arrived back to the hostel there was a large group of Albanian men in their 30's-40's outside our room, drinking and talking. Although they were fairly pleasant to my boyfriend I found it intimidating and didn't feel safe walking to the bathroom alone...

The hostel had an amazing location, it is right next to the bus station and inside was modern and clean. The layout and atmosphere meant that it was great for meeting other people and fellow travellers too. The staff were helpful, and although I only slept there for a few hours due to the fiestas of the time, I really...

The staff at the hostel were lovely. When we arrived at the hostel earlier than expected, even though we weren't allowed to check in we were able to leave our luggage there which meant we didn't have to walk around with it. Similarly, when we checked out we were able to leave our luggage at the hostel until it was...
