Hostelz.com's Review
Bilbao Akelarre Hostel is a small and modern hostel with most of the facilities that you may need during your stay in Bilbao. It is really nice to stay here, with a really relaxed and chilled-out environment.

The Location

Bilbao Akelarre is located no more than a twenty-minute walk from the bus station and is close to the main public transport network. While it is not right in the thick of things and is a little way out of the main centre, most things are within a half-hour walk or you can take the public transport to get there. The walk along the river from here to the Guggenheim, however, is beautiful and there are ample signs and walking paths to guide you where you want to go.

Rooms and Bathrooms

The rooms are large, spacious, and bright here at Bilbao Akelarre Hostel. They have good linen and comfortable beds for you to sleep in as well as large lockers where you can secure your belongings and valuables. The bathrooms are kept clean and have a communal section with leftover toiletries you can use from other guests. The toilets and showers are in separate spaces, with the showers being in a closed-off section for more privacy. They do have hairdryers for loan if you need one.

Common Spaces

The main common space here is the living room, which has couches up one end and a table where you can sit; there is also a dining table and chairs close to the kitchenette. The kitchenette has a microwave, kettle and cups, and plates and bowls; however, there are no stovetops or ovens for cooking. The hostel does serve a free, basic breakfast in the morning to start off your day.

Around the common areas, you will also find billboards, brochures, and information about things that you can do during your stay in Bilbao and also about the transport in and out of Bilbao. The staff are really friendly and are always happy to help you out with any questions that you have. They are also bilingual so you can ask them in Spanish or English.

Summary

Bilbao Akelarre is a great place to stay if you are looking to soak up some culture and take it easy for a couple of days.

5   Great!! Fabulous hostel. It's close to the city center and yet it has a relaxed and cozy atmosphere. Very clean and the staff is super nice! Breakfast and free coffee, tea all day, included. Bilbao is a wonderful city with a lot to offer and a great basis for day trips for nature lover and active fellows. It has beautiful surroundings and friendly people. If you visit the city, you should definitely stay in the Akelarre Hostel!  , age 40, Hungary ()
5   Best Hostel in Spain This Hostel is Brilliant! The owners and staff are super friendly and always willing to help. The Hostel is clean and well organised and is the best option in Bilbao, as it is also close to the city centre and the Guggenheim Museum. The vibe of this place is great and I have made so many friends during my stay here. Highly Recommended!  , German ()
