Simple modern finishings in a traditional centenary building; very conveniently located for any part of town. We provide an easygoing relaxed attitude and environment full of local knowledge and tips. Discover any aspect of Bilbao or the Basque Country, and we're here to help.
A view of your bed, nice and cosy, convenient night tables and hanger, on beautiful hardwood floors.
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 neighborhood 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.
Your private room, use of our modern kitchen and living room (very comfy sofa), as well as the shared bathroom (lovely shower); we don't smoke at home but we also have a small balcony which you are welcome to use if you smoke : )
We are pretty easy going in our house. But some basics we like to lay out for clarity and best ease of sharing our space. So, in this spirit we prefer to take out shoes off when in the house, and also, because there is only one bathroom, we try to keep it tidy and clean, most importantly we try to keep the floor dry especially at night, when if we wouldn't do so it would get messy fast! We don't smoke, but have a comfortable balcony in which guests are welcome to do so. I think that is all of note I can add to the basic common sense ways we all have of getting along. And we appreciate our guests' understanding. Finally thanks for checking this section out : )

Douglas's place was great for our three night stay in Bilbao. His directions were clear and was prompt when meeting him at his location. Upon arrival, Douglas went over house rules and also provided a map with many suggestions for our travels in Bilbao. Our stay was comfortable, clean, and very convenient to all of the things we wanted to see in Bilbao!
Nada era como esperábamos, ni lo bueno que realmente resultó de aquella situación, ni lo malo (que también lo hay). El que vaya debe saber que la casa está en el peor barrio de Bilbao, pero también debe saber que el dueño, Antxoka, es súper majo y te hará la estancia muy cómoda y agradable. Él vive allí y también hay otra habitación alquilada. Nos proporcionó información turística y los desayunos de todos los días. Además, como salió de viaje y solo le vimos el primer día, nos llamó bastante a menudo para ver cómo iba todo. Aunque el portal da bastante miedo y se cae "a trozos", el piso esta reformado y en muy buenas condiciones.
The place was really good! Douglas is a very friendly and welcoming host. He made sure I felt comfortable in the apartment and told me all the relevant places to visit in Bilbao. I would definitely recommend him for anyone else!
Cómo siempre genial,la casa estaba perfectamente ordenada,limpia y céntrica,douglas es majisimo, cualquier duda te la resuelve y ayuda,un once sobre diez le (website hidden) gracias!!!
Douglas nous a très bien accueilli et s'est montré disponible pour répondre à nos questions et pour nous présenter sa ville tout au long de notre séjour. La soirée que nous avons passée avec lui et ses amis était vraiment sympa ! Le logement était propre et confortable.

I'm an independent artist, mostly painter but also a photographer and poet. I am deeply interested in history, geography, travelling and the human condition and I love to share my knowledge and views of my adopted home, Bilbao, with all manner of travellers and friends. I love travelling and love languages, I really like to get to know people and share my passions and views.
