A little bit out of sight & fun, with limited facilities.


Nice, quiet hostel just outside the centre of the city. Would recommend for those looking for a chilled out time in a lovely part of the world.


This was a really nice hostel. The only negative was that it was a pretty long walk to get anywhere. The closest landmark is the Guggenheim building that´s still a 16 minute walk and you need to take the metro (a few blocks away) to the old town or other areas. But for the price, it was a really good room, there was a good bathroom, and it was great to have the breakfast included.


The hostel was far from the city center and not that clean. A lot of dust everywhere. The bathroom wasn't that clean either. The breakfast was okay and the staff was nice.


I found it a very nice hostel to stay. The staff was very helpful and I was very well recommended about the best places to visit, eat pintxos,have a drink or listen to rock music. Breakfast was included and it surprised me because it was very complete (cornflakes, toasts, fruit, cupcakes, orange juice...) for the price of the night (16 euros). It is a few steps away from the city centre, within 15 minutes walk trough the riverside you are in the Guggenheim Museum. For sure, I will repeat.

Very comfortable stay and incredibly helpful friendly staff.


GREAT staff. Really enjoyed my stay


The Hostel is nice, but you have to walk a little bit to the city center. you have to know that there is a kitchen but no hotplate to cook. this is not in the descripton. it only says that there are breakfast (good one, with lot of different things), but you cannot cook there, there are only a microwave. the bathrooms were very good and clean, but hte rooms badly soundproofed, so in the evening and at night you can hear a lot from the neighboors. but the employee are really nice and can help.
