Liked: It was easy to find. The location is fairly convenient. They have a kitchen.

Disliked: The rooms are open at the top such that you can hear noises from all around the hostel and even from the street inside your room. Also, everyone shares just two bathrooms. If their are other bathrooms, I was not told about them by the staff.

Liked: It had a really relaxed vibe and was really clean. The guy working was really nice and helpful. The beds were comfortable and there was your standard hostel breakfast (toast, cereal, croissants, magdelenas, coffee, tea). It is far from the old town, but there's a metro right down the road and the neighborhood it's in has a lot of life. I would stay here again.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.

12 November 2012 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: Good location, fair price, offered to pay the second day of my stay.

Disliked: no instruction, where everything is; one sentence, where the showers and everything is would have been nice. had to change the bed 10 min after I went to bed! ... the new one was bad placed, so I had the breeze of air all night (good in some way... but more likely to get a cold for sure!). Shower water was more cold than warm the first night, second night was ok. Somebody took my towel drying at my bed... probably a mistake by some other guest, but still not a nice fact. Lights go off every once in a while for like 30 seconds...

Liked: Great vibe. The common room has a PS3 with music, movies and the occasional FIFA match projected on a large white wall! Lots of space between beds(which are comfy!) in the rooms and the bathrooms are plentiful. Short walk to supermarkets and there are at least 3 bars within 30 seconds of the Hostal.

Disliked: Little things. No had towels to dry hands after using the bathroom(i know im being pick). No onsite laundry service, but there's a laundramat not too far. No stove, the kitchen is basically fridge, microwave and toaster oven(but u can make do, they do have plates cups and utensils).

Liked: El personal tuvo un trato inmejorable!! A mí la ubicación delhotel me venía bien, pero de todas formas, andando están a 5 minutos de la Ria y a poco más del centro; A escasos metros hay una estación de metro y parada de taxis. Las instalaciones limpias, sencillas pero bonitas. Las duchas bien también, espaciosas y todo muy limpio. Sin duda lo recomendaría y si volviese a Bilbao, volvería. Lo único mejorable es el desayuno y el horario en que está disponible. Todo lo demás, fenomenal.
