I was in town for EuroPython and arrived a few days early for personal travels. One thing I knew I wanted was a central location at a good price, La Estrella Ostatu more than delivered.

Centrally located in the Casco Viejo, it was easy to find and close to everything. An excellent value. Rooms are simple and clean, bathrooms are modern. My room faced away from the street and was amazingly quiet. The only annoyance was a yapping dog which seemed to be coming from another guest's room. Otherwise, a good nite's sleep at a... More

Spent three delightful days and nights in Bilbao at La Estrella. Run by a couple, it has a cozy, inviting atmosphere. We asked for a room away from any street noise, and we were happily accommodated. The room was spacious, the beds were very comfortable, high housekeeping standards, and a double window opened on to an area between buildings, that... More

Very well located in the old centre of the city, the room we had was clean as well as the bathroom but everything was small. ok for a day or two but can't leave the window open during the night because of the street noise.

The first room we good was an interior room and they're was bugs in it, not a good thing. We had to ask for another room as the tenant didn't propose us. We then got one by the street which was cleaner. The only good thing about this hostel is the location.

It was uncomfortably hot in October. Cannot imagine what the summer months are like. The downstairs area with breakfast room seemed ok, but was not very inviting to... More
