Good location and perfect for what we needed. We recently had an overnight stay in Bilbao - the Hostal Central is as the name suggests, central and within easy reach of all the sights and some good restaurants. The room was good, had all we needed - happy to have tea and coffee making facilities. The bathroom let it down... More

On the Plaza Moyua area, you are within short walking distance to the best spots in this cozy town of Bilbao, e.g. two blocks off the Alhondiga. Free wifi in the room, and clean. Otherwise, do not expect much at all.

The hostal is in the center of Bilbao, at walking distance from the major attractions. It is basically an apartment in a condo that has been turned into a hostal. Value for money was good, though there is actually no breakfast. WI-fi was free and worked properly. The hostal has no parking, and you have to rely on the parking... More

We stayed here for two nights. Our main interest is Guggenheim museum. Very central location: about 12-15 min- walk to Guggenheim museum, 7-8 min-walk to airport bus stop. Easy to walk to old and new Bilbao and very close to shopping street with brand names and shopping mall. Good, clean room and bathroom. Friendly staff and helpful- can communicate in... More

Very central to the new and old town. The airport bus goes very close to it on the way to bus terminus. Very friendly and helpful staff, who advised us of good places to visit and eat, and provided us with maps. The room was very clean, and comfortable, good bathroom, and shower with plenty of pressure. I only go... More

This is a great hostel that offers a lot of amenities and it is located right in the middle of everything. It is next to the main square, really close to all the main sights worth visiting and within a walking distance to the old town area. It offers clean sheets and towels while it also has tv, hair dryer,... More

Excellently located basic Hostal, an easy walk to the Bilbao attractions, and the stations. Adequately-sized, clean rooms. Wonderfully friendly and helpful staff (although their command of English was somewhat limited). Tea and coffee facilities in room, with complementary busicuits and sweets - a big surprise. If you're happy to manage with limited space this is an excellent base for a... More
