Ranked #14 of 27 Bilbao B&B and Inns
Reviewed 27 October 2010

The hostel was absolutely one of the best I have ever been. Our double room was big, clean and really nice. It looked like a hotel room. Also the bathroom (just for us) was clean and good. (I saw an other bedroom which wasn't so big, but not like a closet eather.)
The hostel was good located in the Old Town, next to the Cathedral of Bilbao.
The only minus was that the wifi didn't work, but staff gave us a wire so that we could use the internet.
If I ever went back to Bilbao, would absolutely choose this hostel again!

STAY AWAY

Great location in the old city & clean enough, but the owners are dodgy.

Booked online for 50 euro/night (for a tiny room!). They charged $150 for the 2 nights and had already processed it on the card before i went to ask them for the bill (presumably using the details i entered on the booking to reserve the room) & was too late to reverse it. Got home and their was an additional charge for 100Euro on the same day from the same place.
They don't speak any english and there is no chance to get your money back. Dodgy and rotten.Let a bad taste in my mouth after really enjoying this beautiful city.

you were lucky to get it at that price..i normally paid 45 euros for the same dingy room

i know the one you mean...it was once a toliet and bath and they put a bed in there

the roquefer is expensive but prime position for casca viejo

even by spanish standards its grotty..only nice thing to say is the owners i found to be very friendly

the same family own the hotel ripa, and hotel bilbao jardines

overall its not cheap, noisy, dirty....use as a last resort

you can stay directly opposite in the street for half the price and its better...but no showers in rooms

The only advantage I found in this hotel was the location: in the heart of the old town. Appart form that, the lodging was terrible. I stayed in a single room with a private bath (worth 30 euros, very expensive for Spain) and the bath was separated from the bed by a dirty courtain!!!! No walls at all!!!. I had never seen such a thing before for 30 euros!. I had booked well in advance, phoned the day before my arrival in order to confirm hour of arrival, but the owner had forgotten all about it, making me wait for my room and giving priority to other passenger who had arrived later than me. In spite of this, the owner didn't forget to get his payment on the day of arrival! Clean towels and daily room cleaning? Better get them somewhere else. I'm sure Bilbao has a lot more to offer than this horrible, expensive place.
