A nice hostel in Bilbao. Besides location, its a pretty good hostel. One upside is its relative proximity to the bus station. There are lockers and key cards to get in, so its secure. The bathroom could stand to be a little cleaner, but it wasn't gross. Staff was very friendly and breakfast was generous and more than just toast (though I love toast). There were people in the common space, so you could socialize if you wanted though I didn't see much. Value pretty good. Would stay again!

Decent hostel, staff friendly and would overall recommend staying here. One issue that was noted but did not experience was that there is only 1 mens toilet for 4 rooms which does not have the ensuite. Pay the extra money for the ensuite.

Slightly isolated neighborhood, plain outside but decent inside. Some rooms face street so get noise. Modest, OK breakfast. Very friendly, helpful staff. Coming from across river (downtown side), careful to cross the big bridge with wide walkway because there isn't another for a long ways!

Good value for money. Clean and everything works. No cooking just a microwave. Not that easy to reach with public transportation.

This place is only ok.... Comfortable enough but no atmosphere. The common room is very small. Location is not bad because it's quite a nice walk to the city centre, however the actual area seems a bit industrial/dodgy....lots of car garages and paint shops in the area. Kitchen is very basic/slightly unclean. No stovetop or anything just a microwave. Free breakfast was quite good though.

It was a perfectly fine hostel if you are staying in Bilbao a few nights. There isn't much of an atmosphere but the staff were friendly enough and the facilities were good - hot showers, big room lockers and mini hair dryer which you can borrow from reception. The kitchen is pretty clean but has no stove. I read a few reviews before I came and a lot of people complaining about the location but its a 20 min walk to the Guggenheim and thr metro is close by to get to the other sites.
