Great place in the center of the old town. Clean, spacious rooms. Little balcony facing the paved street underneath. Views of the cathedral. Very helpful reception. Common room with a pc for the public and a machine that sells coffee, other drinks and snacks. Overall, a very good experience.

I arrived for a week at the end of February. The hotel is a short walk from the Moyua Plaza bus stop (direct from the airport). At reception was greeted by a friendly member of staff who gave me a map of the town and pointed out places of interest. The room was clean with wooden flooring , TV, hair... More

The staff were exceptionally helpful. A young man working at the desk helped us print our boarding passes for our flight the next day and a young woman explained a bit of Basque culture to us. The hotel promply answered a question I had by email. It's a clean room very close to cathedral and grocery store. Free wifi and... More

We spent a night at this hostel In Bilbao. The hostel is very central for the town centre, which had its drawbacks of being very noisy for most of the night, and not compatible for a light sleeper. Whilst the rooms were clean and adequate, the major problem was the access. The hostel is situated on the third floor with... More

Staff made us feel welcome, room was minimalistic but clean and comfortable. We chose to stay in the casco viejo so we expected the noise factor sleeping with our window open due to unseasonably warm temperatures in October! We were already inured to the all-night noise from late night diners/drinkers out on the streets, 4 a.m. street cleaning machines, etc.,... More

My stay at the Gurea Hostal was amazing, I couldn't have made a better choice. First of all, I loved the position. It's located in the last floor of an old building in the historical centre of Bilbao, just few steps from the Cathedral, with a view on a lovely narrow street full of restaurants and shops. The typical Spanish... More

We stayed at "hostelname" for 2 nights right before we started our camping trip in bilbao region. Because we couldnt speak the language, the staff called different campgrounds to make reservations and helped us finding out about the right public transport. We were even allowed to store our luggage in the hostel one week later before going to the airport.... More

Great location, spotless rooms nicely decorated, this was definitely the best Hostal out of three I stayed in in Bilbao/San Sebastian. The staff went out of their way to be helpful and were welcoming and friendly at all times.

This hotel is not big, but very cosy. We loved our room, there was a picture on the white wall, old wardrobe. Near the hotel there are a lot of places to eat, to drink, to buy smth, also a museum and a market. We found one disadvantage: there was a little bit noisy in the nights outside.
