Went to this "Youth Hostel" when my Air B & B fell through. Poor choice. The positive - located across the river from the Guggenheim Museum convenient to everywhere in Bilbao. Sheets are clean. You meet interesting travelers. It has lots of beds. The Negative - people coming and going at all hours. Three level bunk beds in dormitory style... More

I'd be keen to meet the people who gave five star reviews. It would be a hell of a party.. I am walking Camino de Santiago (North). I just finished walking the French part. Which means I have been staying in 5 weeks worth of youth hostels of ALL sorts. This one is by far the worst one. It was... More

I've stayed at the Botxo Gallery Youth Hostel in May 2015 and I've enjoyed my staying. The relation price/qualty is 5 stars. The location is excellent with a great view, and very romantic at sunset, to the Guggenheim Museum and the river. The city of Bilbao is small and very nice to walk around. The staff is friendly. The dorms... More

At check-in they advised me to book the bed online because apparently the price is cheaper that way, which is an absolute bullshit policy. I had to go through an inconvenient process of booking online. For a price of 14 eur you get a bed in the 32 (!!!) bed dorm. This is insane. And the beds are 3 levels.... More

Botxo Gallery is literally directly across the river from the Guggenheim Museum with a great view of the museum architecture. However, the layout of the hostel isn't conduct to a quiet night of sleep. It has two large rooms that are connected to each other with many bunks in each, so if any of the other guests are loud at... More

The hostel is small but convenient. it has the best view in Bilbao to the Guggenheim Museum and you can reach the old town by foot in 10 min. Everybody was friendly and it was clean. The price is super and it even includes breakfast which was good as well.

Really modern looking hostel from the outside, standard in the inside! Clean and really nice receptionists! Wifi, lockers, kitchen provided! Really cheap too! The kitchen/ reception area looks out at the Guggenheim Musuem! Literally across the river! The hostel is quite central to everything and only about a 20 minute walk from the bus station!

We were 20 days travelling around Spain, spending 3 nights in this hostel situated just in front of the Museum Guggemheim. The place is totally new and nice decorated. The best part is the loung looking the museum. The toilets and showers were very clean as the rest of the place. We enjoyed a lot the place, we would repeat... More

Not only do they cram 21 beds in one room with no windows and no separation between beds (you can actually touch your neighbour's head/toes!) which doesn't meet local legislation... plus the security issue (you can push the door open with your hand and there´s no one in reception after 20h), the place is INFESTED with bedbugs!!!
