Overview

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.

Location

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.

    Friendly, helpful staff, always available at reception. Well equipped kitchen/chill out space. Comfortable rooms, secure with swipe cards. Very handy able to leave luggage in secure locker for free all day (to 11pm) the day of check out. Well located really close to trains and beautiful Old Town, also in a cool, multicultural area, good street atmosphere and local food. Only downside - zero recycling which makes me sad :( And a top bunk plug, light and shelf would be nice.

    New hostal in the middle of the " bad neighborhood " of the city . In reality the location is excellent and the people outside it's no so bad like the richest folk in other part of the town…….comfortable bed ( i was in 4 bed mix dorm with curtain ) , good terrace ( close at 22 30 ) , nice atmosphere . Need a real kitchen ( why is there an open room just for the workers of the hostal ?! ) , more cleanness in the bathroom .

    Really, just A large hostel with if you fancy a stay in Bilbao. Not suited to solo travellers. No atmosphere which is disappointing since then have a bar, which remains closed in the evening. Also low standards of cleaning. Fine for a night if you're not fussed about standards.

    Not in the best area, there was a nice patio area outside but the kitchen was what you would expect in a small hotel room, very small and not well equipped. You wouldn’t be able to cook a proper meal there easily. Not a great vibe and the hostel, seemed to be quite a few local people living there. Staff where nice and helpful though.
