Bilbao Akelarre Hostel

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

Bilbao Akelarre Hostel was the first private hostel in Bilbao since 2009 so we have a lot of experience. We offer a total of 38 beds in a small and cosy hostel to feel like home. Bilbao is a small city so you can walk everywhere!

We are the closest hostel to universities (Universidad de Deusto, Universidad del País Vasco (UPV-EHU), Universidad de Sarriko) and we are just 20 minutes' walk from the Guggenheim. Besides, we are 10 minutes from the New Bilbao, where you can find Euskalduna Palace, Iberdrola's tower, Calatrava's bridge, Moneo's library, and even San Mames, Bilbao's football cathedral!

Our check out is until 12:00 a.m! and the breakfast from 8 - 10:30: fruit, cereal, bread, croassanes, muffins, chocolate, coffee and tea! If you go before 8 a.m we give you the breakfast to take away!

If you arrive later than midnight, we will wait for you! you only have to send us a message!

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It was difficult to get to the place at first but once we found it, the service was great, the staff was really friendly and helpfull. It is a small place, but quite convenient. It is really close to the Guggenheim Bilbao Museum. Thanks Akelarre

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

The walk back to the hostel from the city after dark felt unsafe for a woman alone.
There is only one computer and it didn't function very well.
Little things were inconvenient like nowhere to hang or put down anything where the wash basins were.
The staff were very helpful.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

A quite nice hostal, with very helpful and kind staff. They have an airport pickup service, 20 euros, a bit less than a taxi would have cost. (Due to a very delayed flight, I arrived after public transport had stopped running.)

More centrally located than the "official" youth hostal in Bilbao, which can be more challenging to get to after 2200 hrs at night via public transport.

Clean, comfortable, and quiet--would reccommend to others.

Lovely hostel. Everything is very good except the only disadvantage is a little noise in the room.
