It said "breakfast included", there's no breakfast. Just a kettle in the room. That's far from a breakfast.
The hotel needs a complete makeover; Scratched and dirty walls, old bathroom (especially shower). Clean, but makes a bad impression because everything looks so old.
location, friendly staff, price reasonable for the location
Very small room, and a twin bed (not double)
Right in the Mouya Square, great location and close to all amenities and transport
Bus from airport stopped nearby. Very friendly staff. Comfortable and very well priced for my budget. Easy to book.
-WiFi connection in the room (8) was poor, but in the hall great so not really a problem
-extremely close to Airport bus transfer -friendly helpful staff -dogs are welcome without extra fees (for my future trips important) -nice room, and bathroom although nothing special, fair enough for a night and great when you´ve got to go to the airport and want to be in a central location. Less than 5 minutes to the big shopping area.
A little too basic for my liking
Rooms are small, could do with an update. Bathroom fittings need replacing
Good standard of cleanliness, good towels, sheets etc. 24 Hour reception Very helpful. Excellent location near to shops, banks & restaurants. 10 minutes walk to Guggenheim Museum.
Bedroom was a bit small and hair dryer was useless
Location and staff
Room is small, might be a bit hot in summer
Perfect location for shopping, rooms small but clean and staff were really lovely.
Shower was loaded with mildew I had to scurb before use & when we showered, water leaked onto floor from hole in floor tile floor, it was amazing used most of our towels. 3rd bed in room was foam suited for a child & had to use multiple pillows to support my body. Staff could not get us other accommodation within & other hostal but he tried. Stayed 2 day
Location was great & staff was professional. Hostal was full. Recd 10% discount. August week's festivities made for a wonderful time.
Room 2 needs a few upgrades..similar to Room 4 which was much better
Staff were really friendly and helpful. Location very convenient..walking distance to everything
Didnt realise that it was so central in the heart of tourist central and all the eateries and pubs and because of the narrow streets the nouse seemed to echo. Since rhe rooms arent ventilated or even have a fan it is almost impossible to have the window closed.
Anne was very friendly and welcoming. Place was very clean. Security was very good.
our room did not have a window except over in a corner which opened out on to a closed in space, which made the room very claustrophobic and no air circulation. We were only there for one night and it was fine, perfect place to lay your head and be comfortable... longer and I may have thought the room was closing in on me! Served its purpose and no other complaints! Great value!
this hostal was excellent value for money its location was excellent- right in the centre of the city and 5 min from bus stop to get bus to airport room was clean and comfortable
Open 24hrs, nice rooms, clean and comfortable. Very central location
Just there was no phone connection network from my room
The staff were tremendous and very helpful...made friends for life! Everything was close by the hostel and this was marvellous. All do I had a bad experience outside of the Hostel, I will return.
Room was very basic, only small window on backyard which could not be opened so room was dark day and night. Electric plugs are out of the wall, quite dangerous. Noisy place. Staff does not really speak English and sometimes they turn off the switch regulating the bell from street so you have to phone them to open front door (have to leave key at reception always)
The place is very centrally located, just a block behind the Carlton hotel so everything is easily accessible on foot. Airport bus stops next to Carlton so just about 100 meters. Wifi is good, although no normal network in room for calls or texting. Small snacks and coffee/tea and water boiler (although no plugs to use it) are prepared in room free of charge.
The room and the bathroom were not really clean i.e. if you move your bed, and the bed table, it was dirty like it has been cleaned on the visible parts only.
Really well located, walking distance from Casco Viejo, walking distance from Guggenhein
Great location, kettle with tea, coffee etc
Had a room at the front of the hotel. Very noisey at night. It was a Saturday night and maybe quieter in the week. Room small but adequate for 1 night. Heater provided but no fans or air conditioning when temperature is hot
Very central, able to leave car on the road for free and easily walk to the Guggenheim and old town.
Complete lack of customer service from one of the night porters who left us waiting outside constantly buzzing the door and calling the phone for 20 mins (at 9.45pm). A passing neighbour let us into the building and when we arrived at reception we found him in a deep sleep and totally unrepentant or caring that he'd fell asleep on the job and left us outside. He really let the rest of the staff down as they were otherwise very friendly and helpful. We had an inside which was pokey and not much natural light but it was clean and served its purpose.
Tea and coffee facilities in room Good location Good price
Easy to get to from Bilbao airport. The bus drops you off in the city centre, and from there it is only a short walk. Also very close to many of the city's attractions.
The hotel is perfectly located just few steps from Plaza Moyua, really close to Guggenheim museum and most attractions, easy to get there from the airport. Perfect for city exploring
Hostal decor needed updating and rooms were quite small but fine for our needs
Very friendly and informative staff.Excellent location.Very clean.
Excellent location in city centre, close to airport bus stop. Friendly staff. Good value for money.
Our room was next to the reception, and a little noisy at times, but it had a great balcony. So no real dislikes.
A great position near the main square was the catalyst for choosing this Hostal, and we were not disappointed. We loved having a kettle in the room. Great value for money, and staff were most helpful.
