With designer décor, cheap tapas and a location right in Bilbao's hipster neighbourhood, Bcool Bilbao is the edgiest hostel in town. The hostel itself is in a historic building, revamped in 2017 by a cutting-edge Barcelona design studio to reflect the ambience of the area. On sunny days, head to our terrace to meet like-minded #supertravellers, or in the winter keep toasty warm in the chill-out zone. With a comfy sofa, TV and communal kitchen, it's the ideal place to hang out.


We're in Bilbao la Vieja – Bilbi for short – the city's coolest neighbourhood. You'll find galleries, boutique shops and trendy gastro bars, and international and local artists have decked the streets in colourful images. It takes about 40 minutes to reach us from Bilbao Airport using public transport, and if you're coming by train we're a 10-minute walk from Bilbao-Abando station. Bilbao's must-see sights are within walking distance too, like the Guggenheim Museum (25 minutes), Europe's biggest covered market Mercado de la Ribera (10 minutes) and the Bilbao Cathedral (10 minutes).

Rooms and Dorms

Our private double en-suite rooms are great for couples or solo travellers after a little more quiet time. We've also got family rooms and adapted rooms for travellers with disabilities. Of course we've got dorms too, including two female-only ones. All beds have privacy curtains, private lockers and free Wi-Fi. Some rooms even have en-suites!

Extras and activities

Our hostel has an on-site cafeteria where you can grab breakfast for just a few euros and one-euro pintxos (Basque tapas) from 8pm. If you're heading out for the day, we'll even pack a lunch for you. On Saturdays we give a free walking tour of the city, so you can really experience the sights and sounds of Bilbao (not to mention the food). If you party too hard the night before checking out, don't worry! You can leave at 12pm or pay a little extra to sleep in until 2pm.

    Very nice facilities and friendly and helpful staff, especially Marc on the night shift. The hostel is 5 minutes from the main market and less than 15 minutes from the city center.

    Under renovations so things were a little different than the last time I stayed. Other than atmosphere being slightly affected as a result of the renovations, the staff was great, the place was really clean, and the breakfast was reasonably priced

    The beds were iron and squeeky and the mattress and pillow were thin and worn. The lockers were poor, the keys didn't work. There was a window but it had no way of staying open.

    Sketchy location, removed from the downtown. Bathrooms were dirty and were never cleaned fully/properly. Beds were extremely uncomfortable, could have had a better sleep in prison.

    Bad business ethics. Hostel is not at address in reservation. Paper sign at bottom of door gives new address. New place with only 40-70 yr old men. Mgr laughed to raise price to 60E due to demand. Reception was a table with piles of clutter in dark hall. No breakfast. Bathroom not finished. Sharp edges of tile not grouted or level. Tripped and severely cut foot leg and arm on sharp unfinished edges. Would never recommend to anyone.
