My son, d-i-l, and I stayed there for 3 nights. It was incredibly easy to find from the train station. Even though it was close to the station, the street was quiet and we never had a problem with noise. The location is close to some (AMAZING!!) restaurants and cafes and an easy walk across the bridge to the old... More

I stayed for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and very helpful and the receptionist I met spoke very good English. The hostal is in a very convenient location - a short walk over the bridge to the old town, the tram stops opposite the end of the street, the metro and tourist office are 5 minutes away and a...

We had a twin room with a balcony - plenty of room with cupboards, 'fridge and large bathroom. Comfortable beds. Fan only - no air-con. A nice lounge area with some refreshments (tea, coffee, buns at a small cost), books and a place to relax. Great local cafe just below for good value breakfast/coffee and later for bevies. Lar restaurant... More

We traveled to Bilbao with a group of five. We had a great stay! Fernando's suggestions were timely and spot on. I would recommend this to anyone traveling. Great value and location. Speaks great Spanish and English!

I spent one night here. It is a very short walk from el Casco Viejo and within easy reach of the main attractions. The room was well equiped, if not luxurious. Good bathroom, TV, heating. I believe there was a mini-bar. Reception was helpful.

I stayed for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and very helpful which added to the hotel's special character. The hotel is in a very convenient location - near the old town, the railway stations, the tourism office and the modern town with its excellent shopping streets. The hotel was very clean and very quiet. It is situated on a... More

Looking for an inexpensive, but really good accommodation in Bilbao? Here it is! Central. Really inexpensive. And very clean. We stayed here for 3 nights and would return here anytime. Reception's open 24 hours. And very friendly and helpful. There's free WiFi. TV's "only" in Spanish and Basque. But you're not in Bilbao to waste your time watching TV, aren't... More

My wife and I stayed here on a Saturday night for a quick stop in Bilbao. Both the staff spoke very good English and were extremely helpful and accommodating. We asked for a quiet room and got one off the street but that was in February. But the place is on what is more of a pedestrian walkway than a... More

We only stayed one night but enjoyed the location; across the bridge from the old town. Rooms very clean, good wifi. I left my Dr. Dre headphones behind and when i emailed the hostal, they replied immediately and awaited my arrival. Thank you!

This lovely accommodation was an "Authors Pick" in the Cadogan Guides to Bilbao and The Basque Lands (pg 149, 5th ed,2012). Easily found if you are coming from Bilbao airport, as you can take the airport bus to the end of the line (Termibus Station) and from that station take the metro (San Memes) 3 stops to Abando metro, which...
