The beds are comfy and the facilities are nice and clean, excellent value for what you get. The breakfast is basic but that's to be expected for the price. There is a computer room and a common room to chill in. You can store your luggage in the lockers downstairs for 2euros (24 hrs). Perfect for a night or two in Bilbao.

Hostels – what are they?

Hostels offer so much more than a cheap place to stay – they're also a fun way to travel and meet like-minded people. Common areas like shared kitchens and game rooms give you the chance to swap tips, tricks, and travel stories with backpackers from all over the world.

Hostels have come a long way since the first youth hostel opened back in 1912. Nowadays there's something for everyone, from budget "crash pads" to 5-star "poshtels." Whether you'd prefer a bed in a shared dorm or your own private room, you'll see that most hostels are cheaper than local hotels – and a lot more fun, too!
