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.

The last stay on our tour of basque Spain, this hotel/hostal was for a 2 night stay in bilbao. Positives first, the hotel is very centrally located in the old old town, around 4-5 mins from the metro stop walking. The room was very clean and the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable of the city. Sadly, the negatives outweighed... More

Dear Sir thanks for your comment. Unfortunately we do not agree with your review at all, mainly because it is a hostal no a hotel, the price during the basketball worldchampionship 2014 were higher than usual (obviously) but it is not objetive rating an establishment due to a puntual high price. The price was published and you decided to come... More

Nice location, friendly staff, great service and clean rooms. In Gurea a room for 2 with a private bathroom is better than in some hotels. At the reception you may get all the information (sights, restaurants, beaches etc).

Very pleasant place to stay in the city center of Bilbao. The hostel is brand new. The staff was very helpful. The only negative part are the three stairs you have to climb as there are no elevators. Would definitely recommend the hostel to others

Stayed at Gurea for 2 nights on our recent trip and was very happy with everything. Great price, great location, very clean, safe and the staff are very friendly. We did not experience the "noise" other reviewers have mentioned. Also really liked that they had a lounge area with coffee machine ... good for very early, or late at nights.... More
