Used as a overnight stop from portugal to england. Room was clean and tidy. WIFI did not pick up on second floor. Parking is an issue but all free street parking. Staff only spoke spanish on my visit so getting imformation like restaurants /takeaway etc not easy. Noisy at the front of hotel so would advise a rear facing room.... More

We stayed for one night only before ferry crossing. Hotel was nice and clean with english speaking staff which were very helpful. Recently renovated with brand new furniture and decor. Situated opposite sports centre with busy public car park and off-street parking which was a problem to find a decent space close to hotel. Very cheap room rates but did... More

Everything is clean and the room was comfortable. Very easy to get the train to and from town (8 min.). Great value for price. Also there is free street parking available outside the hotel and across the street in a car park.

PDC is a tidy, cheap hotel that is overall very comfortable. The services are good too. However, we had a room at the front of the building and it was very noisy. Closing the windows made it quiet but hot. Shame - sleep deprivation made it hard to enjoy some of our days in the region.

I should start by saying we were attending the Bilbao BBK live music festival which meant that all of the value accommodation in the city was booked and very expensive eg 48 Euro for a bed in a dormitory! At 43 years old my dormitory days have passed me by!. Price wise we paid 18 Euro a night per person... More

When my partner & I visited Bilbao some years ago we stayed at Pension Don Claudio and we both enjoyed it, so upon deciding to visit Bilbao again this year we chose to stay at the same address. It turned out since our last visit the hostel has been redeveloped (it has a new entrance) and the rooms have been... More

I was passing through Bilbao for one night and needed somewhere cheap and clean to stay. I taxied from the airport ( should have got the bus) and stayed for one night. It's out of town, there are a couple of decent tapas bars around the area. There is a taxi rank just up the road. I taxied to the... More

I stayed in an en suite double room. The heating worked well but we had to turn it on ourselves on arrival. The beds were comfortable. Bathroom was clean and nice. The central location allowed to explore the old town without ever worrying that we'll have to walk a long way back :)

The lift wasn't working and the room had a musky smell so we were not too impressed. The area is not good and there were local youths in groups standing in doorways late at night. We had to book this place because they accept dogs (not that easy to find) but it's only suitable for a one night stop.

Bilbao, rather surprisingly, is a very expensive city to visit. Hostel Don Claudio is actually a bit between a hotel and a hostel--private rooms and baths are available. Most importantly, the place is very clean--although difficult to notice from the outside as it's situated in a building with other apartments and perhaps offices. Also of note, it is NOT accessable... More
