had a great stay here for a night. not the best initial impression. outside all you can see is the blue door and a lot of construction going on in the front of the building but inside it's very nice. highly recommended.

Why this is only a 2 star, I'll never know. The staff are always friendly, happy & helpful. The rooms are clean & cosy, equipped with flat screen TV & a fridge. The beds are amazingly comfortable too. Better than some 4 star hotels I've used in Spain. Excellent value for money

We very much enjoyed our stay at this little hostal. The staff were very helpful and the location was perfect. It was very central and within easy walking distance of everything. It was also very quiet.

Good location, close to all attractions, we booked a junior suite which had plenty of room, it was clean and tidy. One of the reasons I booked this place was it has parking available, the shutter for the car park was open when I arrived as someone had just left so I drove in and found a space, when I... More

This hotel is well positioned for the railway, old town and still an ok walk from the Guggenheim. It is on the edge of the gentrified areas so does not have the vibe of the old town, or the class of areas closer to the Guggenheim, but neither does it have the high price. Our room was large, clean and... More

Great location, but if you are by car, will have to park in a public car park, we used an underground one just over the river, short walk to the hotel. We ended up with the family room, large and great bathroom so no complaints for 75 euro. Easy walk to the museum, 10 minute walk to the popular bar... More

Hostal Begona is well situated right across from the train station, the Abando metro / tram stop, and within walking distance of the Casca Vieja, the Guggenheim, and really all of Bilbao. It isn't anything fancy, but it doesn't pretend, or need to be. Our room was clean and functional with a window to an unused alley which meant we... More

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
