The staff was nice, but it was just.. strange. As a previous reviewer mentioned, it had the decor of a daycare and the ambiance of a hospital waiting room. Also, the fridge smelled.. alot. The price was average for a hostel in Bilbao (payed 17€ per night for 2 nights,) but the hostel was below average, (lack of amenities, hardly any electrical outlets in the rooms, etc) Also, it definitely had an older crowd than many other hostels.

Only drawbacks were how little space there were in the rooms and under the bottom bunks (could not even sit up remotely) and how few showers there were for SO MANY people! The line was long and in the rooms you were always getting in everyone's way because the was no space. Other than this, wonderful! Nice staff and people, clean, good breakfast.

It's a very good choice for people who want to travel to many different places as the hostel is close to the bus/tram/metro station. I was satisfied with the staff and cleanliness of the hostel however I was in a double room most of my stay there- a bit more expensive but much better than 12 person room obviously (more intimacy and easiet access to the bathroom). The only thing I resigned from was breakfast (bad one) I preferred to have this morning meal in a nearby cafe ;)

Good location, friendly staff but the hostel is a bit like a hospital ward. Very quiet and not very atmospheric - but maybe that's just the kind of people that Bilbao draws? Did not enjoy the sleeping part. Came in pretty late and so felt bad/rushed unpacking when lots of others were sleeping. There were quite a few snorers in the room and, if I may add, surprisingly a lot of middle aged/older people which is odd for a hostel.

Would recommend for a short stay only. They had lockers with keys and free breakfast. no ventilation apart from a tiny window in the 12 bed dorm and there was a weird damp smell. Beds were creaky and mattresses were dirty. Bathrooms - should look to have more hooks, 1 isn't enough! People don't lock the room Doors. Lack of atmosphere plus they don't organise anything and kick you out of the common room at 12 so everyone ends up outside which you can hear from the room anyways.

This is a totally fine place to sleep for the night. There are tons of beds piled in a room with little extra space; one totally fine common room, and communal toilets and showers. They do give you a big locker and locker key and have a 24-hour reception, and they are located immediately in front of the metro, so all in all totally fine. That being said, there is nothing special about this place in any way. Not particularly friendly or communal, breakfast sucks, polite staff. Wouldn't go back

Small kitchen and common room. Very nice outdoor area but closes after a certain time. They let me use their kitchen for lunch even though I had already checked out that morning.

Was only here for a night but I had a nice stay. It was nicely decorated, not too big, had a nice big outdoor patio, breakfast included, and was close to the bus terminal and to the bilbao / nice park on the west.

Great location to Guggenheim Museum and bus station. Absolutely fine for a brief stopover. Rooms back directly onto breakfast area and bathrooms onto this too so you will be woken up super early but fine for 1 night.
