If you’re looking to for modern contemporary culture and art, then Bilbao has what you’re looking for. This City is a working city, very modern, and artsy. Just a glance at the cities infrastructure and you’ll notice how organized it is. Its a favorite to many people we’ve met through our travels and hostels.
We took the bus from San Sebastian to Bilbao and booked a hostel last minute for just one night, right across the river from the Guggenheim museum at a very affordable price. We couldn’t believe how lucky we were and it included a continental breakfast with tea and coffee for 24hrs. This hostel ended up costing us only 11 euros/person/night and it had a great view right at the museum. We stretched out our luck and payed for it that night as we quickly realized that it was a party hostel that slept 36 people in one dorm. As you can only imagine in a dorm that sleeps this any people, you can’t really expect to get a good nights sleep and hear a lot of noises, that should be kept private, especially when sleeping in a bunkbed. #areyouserious #getaroom #didn’texpectthis #itsafirst
Tip 1: visit the Guggenheim museum. We didn’t and we regret it.
Tip 2: be sure to go to the old town. There are some beautiful churches!
