BBK Bilbao Good Hostel

BBK Bilbao Good Hostel is a bit different from many of the hostel's you'll find in Spain. There's an eclectic mix of people staying here in basic but comfortable rooms. The prices are good but the location is a bit removed from the center of the city. This is a great option for larger groups as they have the space and amenities a group might require.
