It just took us 5min walking to come to the river on which along it´s a beautiful walk to the center (which also doesn’t take long – alternatively we could have also taken the metro). We spend there two nights for a very good price. The dormitories, bathrooms and everything else were absolutely clean and the beds were nice mattresses... More

This place is clean. I love it. Different options for sleep - I did 12 bed mixed dorm night one and 6 bed with only two people night two. Towels for rent. Nice kitchen. Not enough outlets in the rooms- especially in the 12 bed. Could use shelves in each bunk with an outlet. Breakfast was very simple and nothing... More

Good free breakfast and coffe and tea all day long! The common area is a comfortable place, there games, a TV, magazines- whatever you can think of to make a rainy evening more fun. They have lockers in the dorm rooms, shared bathrooms and showers. However, what puzzled me a bit, was that they did not have anything to cook..neither... More

Clean and tidy. Beds are very comfortable. Staff at reception are very helpful and friendly. Hostel has everything you can ask for (hairdryer, towels at 1.50€ for the whole stay, kitchen, etc.). Pipes can be a bit noisy during the night but overall very good experience

Friendly, helpful staff and a great atmosphere in the hostel. It's very clean and tidy with everything well organised. I was very happy with my experience and I would recommend this hostel to others. It's right by the river and well connected in terms of public transport.

Nice, clean hostel with friendly stuff how will give you all the information you need and recommend you places to go and see. It's not in the center but the metro station is really close. Or if you prefer (like I do) you can walk.

It's a small hostel, and pretty quiet. It's located outside of the centre, but Bilbao isn't a large city so getting into town isn't much of a problem - around a 20-30 minute walk or a very short metro ride. The metro station is pretty close. Taxis are cheap as well. The staff were friendly enough and speak good English.... More
