Mein Zimmer im ersten Stock hatte vor dem Fenstet einen breiten Streifen (man könnte von außen bei geöffnetem Fenster von Zimmer zu Zimmer) - ich konnte mein Fenster nicht offen lassen - habe ich aber dennoch gemacht - der Rollsden verschaffte mir dann die nötigste Sicherheit

Buen sitio para estar alojado en Bilbao. Buena opción para una estancia a buen precio (por el precio de una cama en una habitación compartida tienes una habitación individual con baño privado) Buen mobiliario y suficientemente limpio. Localización correcta, cerca del centro.

This was only a 2 day visit and the hostel was ideal for this. We would not have wanted to stay much longer given the comfort of the beds. What would help? Clear directions on the website as to how to get there from the airport - this was sadly lacking. Confusion with the type of room booked but the staff rectified this. Breakfast was done cheaply - the cheapest bread, plasticham and cheap cheese. One type of breakfast cereal. A greater choice would have been appreciated.

Buenas instalaciones aunque el albergue está en una calle en la que se ejerce la prostitución. Borrachos y drogadictos frecuentan la zona. Pésima ubicación.

Accueillante, propre, design Temps d'attente à la réception excessif (20 minutes en moyenne). Prix de 10 € pour stationner ma moto très excessif, + 4 € de petit déjeune . En France tout est compris. Mais une chambre individuelle équipée d'une mini cuisine, cela compense. Dommage l'absence d'ustensiles pour cuisiner. Concept d' appart hôtel. Enfin étonnant que personne ne parle français
