- good price - very good location with the beautiful Guggenheim Museum and the river right in front of the hostel - with a dining area
- the bunk beds: impossible for the already very small me to do anything in the bed except lying down/sleeping.. had to go elsewhere to use my notebook (i had the top bed before and it was fine without this problem) - my locker is too high that i couldn't put my luggage inside even though this is compulsory.. some lockers are fine at lower positions - too many people in the same room :( + no locked door for each room = feeling unsafe
Price for location
The bathroom facility is ok.
It was a true nightmare when you have to share the room with 15 people through your sleeping time. The location wasn't that good like the other's comments, you have to walk up to the bridge in the strong wind and then go down by an elevator, it was totally stupid for the circulation.
-The view is priceless: just magnificent and could not have been any better. The hostel sits just across the river from the architectural marvel that is the Guggenheim museum. Rightfully and thankfully, the outter wall of the hostel lobby is entirely made of glass, so you can see the Guggenheim museum and the river every time you are in the hostel lobby. -Breakfast is great for the daily rate at the hostel. Breakfast quite copious and good enough to hold you for at least the entire morning.
-Lots of beds and people in a room can feel crammed, not to mention the inevitable smell at times -Cleanliness: bedrooms and bathroom not always very clean. It appeared that they are not cleaned daily but instead on specific days of the week.
In front of the Guggenheim. Minimal: only bed and breakfast (and bathroom and free WiFi).
Three level beds and so less space between them. I hit my head against the above one so many times.
Botxo was near the centre!
The box where you put your bag is inside the bedroom, It must be out because people can be sleeping!
dirty showers, smelly WC, dirty and messy kitchen, overflowing bin, cramped beds, no outside window
Excellent location close to city and Gug Museum. Dormitory accommodation as described
There is no ventilation in the rooms making them very hot at night. This was Oct so unbearable in summer. Very noisy with people talking until 3am & starting again at 5. Will never stay again
Frank Gehry himself would stay here for the views of his building and of the changes it has brought to the old quay. He'd also like the included breakfast, friendly (but, uh, intimate) public spaces, cleanliness, blitzing wi-fi and the smokin' price. And the locals-only, approachable staff, who know their town by heart and are happy to answer in English, Español or, if you're feeling brave or are drunk, Euskari.
The Botxi is a little creaky, literally -- the beds and doors are noisy affairs. And it gets pretty stuffy at night. Regardless, neither the creaks or stuffiness are so prominent that they won't fade into the background if one is properly pooped from a day on the town or in the museum. Or if one takes a second to look out the window for that view!
The location, right opposite the Guggenheim museum.
Too many beds constrained in a 15 beds room. They were 3-bed bunk beds. Too many people sleeping in the same space becoming quite warm inside, which makes quality of sleep really low.
WiFi didn't work
Great location! Good value for money & the place was quite clean.
The living space was a little chaotic..the seating area got turned into beds in the evening so there was no where comfortable to sit. There were sockets for charging phones etc but were limited to the seating area (bedroom!) Breakfast could be improved too but I guess you get what you pay for!
Ran out of breakfast and they gave my bed away to someone else due to poor staff management of knowing how long I was staying.
Located directly across from the Guggenheim.
There is no staff in the evening or overnight. This was a problem well there was no toilet paper in any of the (six?) stalls and no staff to rectify the situation. The absence of staff was also problematic when I arrived to my bed to find someone else sleeping there.
The Botxo hostel is simple, but perfect for staying one or two nights in Bilbao. In walkable distance to the train station and also connected to a main tram line, I found the location better than any other in the city, in front of the Guggenheim and close to the funicular up the mountain (recommend to take that!). Breakfast is enough to get you started for the day, bathrooms and rooms are clean, there are enough plugs and the wifi is strong enough also when the hostel is full. You can also buy a padlock for the lockers and the hostel feels safe. Moreover you don't even need a key, only a passcode to enter, so there is no key you have to take care of.
Downside is that they only have two big rooms with a lot of beds and one of them connected to a lounge, so depending on the guests, it can get noisy while you are trying to sleep. Personally had no problem with that though.
Location, price, cleanliness and the view from our room to Guggenheim. I sugest the 15 people room, just for the view, since the 21 one has none. The hostel walls are very pleasant, since they have cool colors and design, it's fresh and modern.
The hole near the ceiling that links both rooms. It probablu could be closed and you didn't needed to ear the noises from one room to another.
Location was quite good.
I was charged €50 for something that should have cost around €10. three storey bunks in crowded rooms taking complete advantage of tourists stuck for accommodation. Breakfast was terrible staff and facilities very modest. Just kitchen and bathroom. Staff were very friendly and helpful in spite of everything else.
Staff was polite and supportive, booking was easily done, mail with code was very much appreciated.
The sleeping room is unacceptable. I had the third bed from the bottom - all was instabile, it was difficult to reach it and it was hard to come down again. It was the most terrible night in my life and I was in many albergues in Spain. There was no emergency light.
The location is perfect and the staff was very helpfull!
Great location, in front of the museum! Nice staff.
