This room in a modern tastefully renovated apartment, in the historic outskirts of Bilbao's old town, a stone's throw from the main train station Abando, in the up and coming gritty neighbourhood of San Francisco, home to the newest and hippest creative businesses and a pleasant stroll down a block or two to some of the best Restaurants in town.
The room is furnished with a double bed. WiFi is available in the house, a modern kitchen with all amenities including an oven for delicious meals (one of the biggest fresh produce markets in Europe is 6 minutes away!).
We are extremely experienced hosts, having received more than 160 people so far and counting, through other hosting networks, passionate about our city and interested in not only it's history and attractions, but also about it's culture and politics, we will do everything in our power to show you the best foodie spots, relaxed bars, cafès and pintxo bars in town. And one of your hosts, Douglas is a native English speaker, apart form knowing another 6 languages, and hopefully smoothing out any possible communication problems as your joint host with Antxoka, the Basque owner of the apartment.
--NOTE FOR 3 PEOPLE--
The room has one double bed, and that accommodates 2 people, to accommodate one more we have the possibility of pushing the bed to one side and fitting a little mattress on the floor next to the bed. Or the third person can choose to sleep in the living room which is open to the rest of the house and does not have a door.

The flat is in a house that would need some renovation (especially the stairs), but the flat itself is in perfect shape: newly renovated, good baathroom, nice kitchen. The flat is inhabited by two persons, but neither of them where present during my stay. The room is windowless, perfect if you just want to sleep deeply, and has a nice bed.
Be aware that it is located in the outskirts of the red light district, but I did not feel unsafe at any time, neither did I really notice it at nights. Thus, I can fully recommend it, as it is in perfect walking distance to the city center.

Douglas is a very friendly, open-minded, relaxed and supportive host. His recommendations helped us to spend a great time in Bilbao. If we ever come back to Bilbao, we would love to stay again in his place. Thanks for the great time, Douglas!

Douglas was a fantastic helpful host! He not only gave us a full run down of where everything is and what to do in the time we had, he gave us a great run down of the history and politics of the region... Cannot sing his praises loud enough!!!
