Peaceful, quiet, basic pension with a great location right in the middle of the center of Bilbao for a good price. Staff was friendly. Bathroom was smelly and the room quite old. Beware: no AC so room can get very hot.

The hostel is clean, neat and tidy. Rooms and toiletes are also clean and their size adequate. The staff is welcoming, and very helpful. The services they offer are very limited, no breakfast or restaurant, just what you would expect from a hostel. In general is a recommendable place to spend 1 or 2 nights, for longer stays, I would... More

The size of the room is the central reason for low scores. The bed takes off all the space and if you have a big suitcase you cannot even open it comfortably in the room. The window cannot be opened and if you try it opens to the duct area. There is no natural lighting. IF you suffer from claustrophobia... More

hello: firstable, our rooms has 10 square meters and we think is enough for a single use, all the windows are openable, of course, and we do have a lot of different rooms and it is impossible that all of them are exterior... all our beds have a new system that you can lift it just to put your luggage...

As long as you expect a 'Pension experience' and not 5 Star hotel at 10 times the expense you will see that this accommodation was excellent value for money, quality and ease of access to a whole load of transport links, sightseeing and night life. It was clean, tidy, comfortable and well located with helpful staff for a very reasonable... More

I stayed at the Pension Bilbao for four nights in late September 2014, booking online and paying a total of 176 Euros (room only). Breakfast was not available; however, there were at least three cafes serving reasonably priced breakfasts in the same street as the hotel. I have only positive things to say about this hotel, which I would definitely... More

A large, spotlessly clean room, with a modern shower etc, in an excellent position for the river, the old town, the railway station, the theatre, the cathedral and the various art galleries, and not expensive. Above all there's a super-helpful owner, who, when I'd given up hope, managed to mend a handle that was dropping off my suitcase. Three and... More

Awesome location halfway between Gugennheim and Old Town. A bit far from the bus station, but walkable nonetheless. Staff is super friendly, and (surprisingly for a such a small pension) stored a luggage securely for an entire day. Room is tiny of course, but clean and a window that fully opened. The bathroom was a little less than clean, but... More
