Very nice hostel. Room was clean and modern, but was a bit cold considering the weather wasn't that warm. Also you could clearly hear noise from other rooms. However, this is a minor detail and in general the hostel is very nice. No bar but good, well equipped kitchen and lounge with lovely outside terrace. You can buy beers, drinks and snacks from reception for cheap. Location very good for bars / restaurants nearby, and right next to metro and bus station so well connected. Recommended!

It was a nice hostel but there was no vibe, it was a much older crowd. I felt awkward every time I was in the kitchen or going to the bathroom. The staff were weird and didn't make much of an effort to help out.

Almost everything was well. The blanket was kind of not so clean, but the sheets Werke fine, so it was OK. I would habe loved real coffee for breakfast instead oft instant :-) Everything else was good and worth staying!

I was really confused why they close down the common space at 12 am especially since they have 24 hour reception. I understand the noise control issue and the cleanliness issue... but still. I think it was odd. Otherwise, really nice staff and facilities. The location is decent, you have the street car and metro line right there. If you like walking, you are close to the new part of town like the Guggenheim Museum. Nice place, overall!

Really good location, close to the bus station and city center. Didn't feel too comfortable in my room as there were very strange guests staying there, the female receptionist was lovely, couldn't fault her but I found the male receptionist to be quite rude.

Pil PIL Hostel is ideally situated and close to the bus station and alongside the metro. Some of the dormitories can be noisy at night time with residents coming and going at all hours which interrupted sleep patterns. It may be useful to have a light attached to each bed so as not to disturb those stragglers.

Lovely clean rooms. Paper thin walls. Next doors resident had a loud and long conversation at 10.45 at night. The staff are very friendly . Location is excellent. especially for the bus station. Tram line is nearly outside the door. Bilbao is fabulous. especially the old town.

We stayed in a private twin room, which are next door to the main hostel. Could not fault the cleanliness or ease of check-in and check-out. Location is good, right next to tram and metro stops and only a short walk to the riverside. Also very convenient for the Estadio San Mames if you are in town for the football.
