Very nice staff and clean facilities. Could have one stove and oven to cook and one fridge at the private rooms area.

Staff was incredibly helpful and friendly. Was there on a weeknight and only one night so atmosphere may be different at other times, but it was relatively quiet and extremely relaxed. The bathrooms were a bit dirty but no more than most hostels. If you have shower shoes/flip flops you'll be fine. Everything was pretty secure and the people at the desk were very knowledgeable, kind, and helpful about getting around the city and things.

Great place to meet people! You can't stay in the hall after midnight but then you can just go out with the people you met there.

Great location! 5 minute walk from the bus station. 25 minute walk to old town.

Super convenient location, 2 blocks from major bus station, next to tram, near riverfront and museums and Camino de Santiago! Friendly multilingual staff can help you with everything from Euskera to travel information. Clean enough, secure enough, atmosphere enough, value enough for good Bilbao city stay.

Excellent location is this hostel's best feature. Right on the tram line, walking distance from the river front and museum area, across the parkway are stores and shops and eating places of various levels, soccer stadium is immediately behind the hostel so during games it is noisy and there are a lot of fans around in party mode but it is not rowdy by European standards. Staff friendly, always someone is at the door. Breakfast gives you a good start, and the coffee is fresh. Good base for trave

Probably the cleanest hostel I have ever stayed in. The staff were really friendly and helpful. Good location, 2 mins from Main Bus station, 2 mins from San Mames Metro stop, 20 minute walk to city centre. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Clean, well-located hostel that's good for staying a night or two. However, the place is quite unintimate and badly soundproofed so that I was not able to sleep as long as there were people in the common room talking (midnight).

Very clean, staff very friendly. I booked a room with 12 beds, but finally I stayed in a room with four beds that was in the 'suites' part of the hostel. It was very quiet.

Located close to the bus station and not too far from the museum and old town. People were very social and it was fun to hear travel stories. I recommend ear plugs for sleeping and be ready for lots on people to be going in and out of the room.

Great Hostel!!!! I stayed there before in February, and now it is better with a new area and new rooms!!!

A normal dormitary room on a good spot. The youngsters will arrive in the middle of the night with a lot of noice back to the room. Be prepared for that when you sleep here. In other hostels there was a lot more respect dor silence in the middle of the night. Price is high.

Drastic changes in water temperature of showers :(

Was an alright place. Reception staff didn't speak much English/didn't seem too happy when asked for directions or places they recommended. Toilet light was powered by a sensor which turned off every 15 seconds or so. Quite annoying if you're doing your business and need to wave your arm above your head to turn the light back on a few times a minute.

Great hostel with very friendly staff in a central location. It’s a shame that there was no breakfast was included as promised, and the communal areas close at midnight.

I had a very nice stay at Pil Pil Hostel. It's conveniently located, very quiet, nicely decorated and the staff in particular are very friendly and efficient. I would no doubt recommend this hostel!

A great hostel! Cheap, good location, nice staff. Though the showers gave only boiling / freezing water, and breakfast was pretty average.
