You can't beat the location, and the price is pretty good for what you get. However the kitchen consists of a microwave and fridge, there are only three showers for the 36 bed dorm, the wifi kept cutting out and the fact that the reception closes so early means people can bring back whoever they want to the hostel to sleep there. As mentioned previously there were some very strange people there and I didn't feel entirely comfortable, especially with no one manning the reception at night.


The smell of the pillows and the beds was not very good. :( But altogether it was good and the women on the reception was really great :)

I know this is a love price place but I've stayed in the same price for bigger cities and experienced better accommodation. Anyone with a code can enter to hostel so security was it was not good. Also has a three bed bunkers, which I can't say I was really comfortable. I'm a person who can sleep nearly anywhere but have to wake up as if there was an earthquake when someone above me moved in her bed.


Best location! Value for money very good


The only good thing about this hostal was the location. There are only two rooms with 15 beds each, there is no one at the reception after 21:00, the people do not respect and they do a lot of noise all night and it is imposible to sleep. The showers are usually very dirty.

We spent a really good time in Bilbi but, please guys could you grease all doors into the hostel as we couldn't sleep properly because of the multi entrances during nights... see you soon


Pleasant stay, friendly staff and very close to the Guggenheim Museum.


Awesome location and perfect view to the Guggenheim Museum! If you are on a tight budget, here is the perfect place for a night or two or even more. Staffs are helpful and friendly.


There are no plugs close to the beds which is very annoying. It doesn´t have the overal structure to receive all the people that can occupy all the beds. The two rooms and the living room are not separated by wall in the top part so it´s like everyone is in one room all the time. Internet doesn´t work all the time and I´m not sure if it happens very often but there was a power outage. They turn off the lights of the common areas at night (not sure at what time).

Good Hostel, but could be cheaper.


Very clean rooms, plenty of space, friendly and helpful staff, good breakfast. Only one thing though, bring a small lock as the lockers only have tiny holes to fit a lock through.


The location and price of Boxto hostel were incredible. The staff was very kind and helpful. The kitchen was okay which a toaster, microwave, and refrigerator. I am not a big fan of triple bunk beds, but for the price I could not complain.
