The relation price - quality is ok, it's a cheap hostel with clean common areas and rooms, fully equipped and also featuring free breakfast, Great for short term trips and adventures. Also friendly staff.

This is by no means a hostel, rather it is some sort of communal hotel and overpriced at that. There is no hostel atmosphere, nor is it encouraged in any way. The staff do not tell you anything about the city unless you specifically ask, and even then most of what we were told regarding where to find restaurants and...

Staff was friendly and helpful, place was clean and quiet, and the from our room we had a great view of the city. My key card stopped working at around 11pm and the staff fixed it right away (even tough it took 2 attempts). Wifi works only on the ground and first floors, when you stay in the 5th floor...

This is more like a student housing than a hostel or hotel. At the time we were there it acted as a summer school for varius groups of teens from all over Europe. They were a bit noisy, but other than that this is no problem at all. They serve a simple, high school cafeteria style breakfast - but still...

Although the Albergue Aterpetxea is a bit of a hike from the central city, it's still only about 20 minutes away from everything you'll want to see, including the beautiful Guggenheim Museum. The best part is that it overlooks the entire city, including the river. It's a ten-minute walk from the bus station, if you want to do a day-trip...

The staff were exellent and...

Stayed here for 7 nights during the Basketball World Cup. Got a four share dorm with friends that was very spacious and clean. Free breakfast was a plus and even though the hostel was fully booked, hardly ever heard anyone. Not too far a walk to the bus or tram station and a short trip into the CBD. Not many...

Taking into account that it is a hostel and not a hotel, I found it perfect within its category. The double room is big and everything is very clean. The only thing that could be improved is the breakfast: not very abundant and varied.
