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.

This is not the right place to meet students and have a party. Everyone is asleep by midnight and awake by 9am but if you like that and don't want to meet students go for it

Cheap, and in a nice central place right next to metro stop. The rooms are cramped with double bunks that make a lot of noise every time someone moves. There are just two bathrooms for many people, and there are huge problems with water pressure in showers, so expect to play the game of "it's too hot now ... no wait its freezing cold now". Room windows go to the street so there's a lot of noise - bring earplugs or don't expect to get much sleep. Would not recommend for light sleepe
