Close to ferry terminal for early morning departure, great price and family friendly. Quick easy no frills breakfast to start the day. Difficult to navigate on Bilbao's ring road and 1 way system.

4/5 Good

Liked: Cleanliness, staff & service, property conditions & facilities
A decent stay in a decent hostel.
It looks a bit far away from the city centre, next to the highway, at the top of a slope\hill, but the location isn't that bad actually. In half hour walk you're in the city centre and it's perfect for those traveling by car (free parking). Clean rooms & bathrooms, friendly and helpful staff. Free (basic) breakfast is served exclusively between 8 and 9 AM, even during high season. WiFi works fine, nice info provided for city sightseeing. I would recommend it.
