Very nice and clean hostel with a good common area for meeting people. Cheap beer as well! Only drawback is that it's isolated so a bit of a walk to old town but manageable and a metro right next to it for the lazy people! Great value for money!


Nice and relaxed little hostel. Everything is pretty quiet by around 12pm but that's not always a bad thing, good location, a nice walk through the city or along the rivers edge to get places. Wifi was excellent and worked everywhere. The staff were really helpful and more than happy to have a chat. Kitchen is small but can manage to cook your own food 👍🏼 very nice place


Very small hostel so good if you're travelling alone as it is easy to meet people. Location is not near the beach and a bit of a mission to get places! - although close to Metro and staff provide good directions to beach, old town etc. Nice and clean, did the job for a few nights! Thanks for having us

I had booked a 4-bed room for my stay (which was already very overpriced considering I paid 55 euros a night). However, they placed me on a 8-bed dorm and still charged me the same amount. When I inquired about this issue to the reception the lady told me she didn’t know why and would check with her boss. She didn’t. And I never got reimbursed for the difference in the rooms. This type of behavior is just dishonest and I would never recommend this hostel to anyone else.


Amazing place, great people


Great hostel. Wonderful staff. Close to metro and main attractions. Beach a fare way away. Good atmosphere. Would stay again!


Nice hostel wirh friendly staff and laid back atmosphere. The only thing is the location that is a bit far away from the center.


Had to wait a few hours to check-in due to few staff being around, but when they arrived they were lovely! Showers didn't open until 9am which doesn't suit early risers, but breakfast is a bonus. Small kitchen and the gas ran out one night so had to make makeshift dinner in the microwave. Good vibe and great communal space.


Fede and Isa are very helpful.


I liked this hostel for its cleanliness, fantastic staff and an excellent communal area to meet people. 10 Minute walk down town which is nothing. Comfy beds and a great chilled atmosphere. I booked the wrong day via hostel world and arrived a day early and they had no problems with that and just switched the days we were there at no extra cost. The guy at the desk was super helpful. Really clean. Fully functional kitchen and really fast wifi. Will be staying again if I venture back to Bilbao

Fab staff. Made us feel right at home and were more than happy to help and make recommendations. Chilled atmosphere. Rooms reasonable size and clean. No windows but not really a big deal.


Having Keys and locker would be good idea.


very kind staff - we had a great stay and were treated very nicely! very cool atmosphere and design, nice place to hang out and meet others :)
