We got a room with only a window to a shaft and therefor had no option for fresh air. As the room was newly painted, the smell was terrible and not really healthy. Lots of dust, and didnt look very clean - the bedsheets and towels were clean though. The shared bathrooms were also ok. Also, if you want complete...

Was just in Bilbao for a weekend & our accommodation was great. Good location in the Old Town, easy wall to the nearest Metro & clean towels available at arrival. We booked a room with a private bathroom but even the shared bathrooms were always kept clean. Ticked all our boxes, clean cheap & central!

I loved the location, in the old town with many bars and restaurants in the area. Also close to the metro. The room: we had a small and hot room (it was July). Pension did provide a ventilator. The room had a window overlooking the patio with a roof, so it was impossible to see the sky.

Me and my wife stayed here mid week in June. It's located in the medieval quarter of the city. There are plenty of bars and restaurants right on its doorstep and within 2 minutes walk of the metro stop. The room we stayed in was small with a window onto a very small courtyard. It was comfortable and clean. The...

“If you want quiet room then get a room toward the back of the building. If you want to see the action on the street, have a balcony, and deal with the noise at night then get a room toward the front of the building.”

“I have stayed in Room 8 and I could recommend it - a huge room with a very nice view.”

“Choose an outward facing room if you want to see what's going on in the street for atmosphere, or one with no street windows if you want something a bit quieter”
