  • some staff were friendly, others not so much. When I tried to check in, staff was out of the place for over 40 minutes though it was reception time with a paper "I will be back in 20 minutes." I was waiting, and when I passed by the reception, I accidently encountered in a way Indian looking staff, but she was "busy" doing something else and the "out of office paper" was still hung at the door. so I was waiting for nothing. she was also not friendly at all. others however, were very helpful.

  • For one night this hostel was perfect. Great location, easy to find. Also had a peaceful sleep and nice view for breakfast!

  • Very pleasant/helpful staff, but gone after 10pm. Door code issued, changed weekly. Great location. Sturdy lockers. Sleeping area is jammed with 3 tiered sturdy bunks-easy to bang my head! But basically okay. Bring ear plugs. It's cleaned daily but there's always a slob-can't be changed. Free breakfast can be supplemented with local foods. All in all, a cheap and good place to sleep and then go out and see Bilbao.

  • The selling points of this hostel are the reasonably priced accommodation, free breakfast, and location, which is right across the river from the Guggenheim Museum. However, the ´´fun´´ aspects of the hostel experience are a bit lacking... there really isn´t a common area besides the uncomfortable chairs in the kitchen, so it´s a bit hard to meet people. Although I did meet two other travelers, there were no organized activites and not that many suggestions of things to do in Bilbao.

  • Having breakfast watching the Guggenheim museum is just priceless. The staff is very friendly and helpful, the location is very close to the centre of Bilbao, and is cheap and good. What else can you ask for?
