Be a txikitero, my friend

From Madrid to heaven (or so they say)
Madrid, Spain
One of Madrid's most popular sayings is that there's only one hard to visit the latter, let's begin with the former.
Ancient but modern. Oldie but goldie
Lisbon, Portugal
Lisbon is the oldest capital city in Western Europe, but it blends that antiquity with a feisty modern spirit. Maybe because beauty is never out of style.

HALLOWEEN 2022: BRUSSELS VS BILBAO
Latroupe La Granja, Hostel in Bilbao
A boutique hostel that reflects the spirit of the city

Number 2 of the Plaza Circular in Bilbao is a special place. In 1926 the mythic Café La Granja opened on its ground floor. It was done in the art nouveau style, imitating the refined cafés of France. And it soon became the cultural epicentre of the city. Conscious of the cultural importance of the place, Latroupe decided to maintain the name and spirit of this literary café when it located its new hostel in the centre of Bilbao.

The walls, their decorative borders, and even the name and the mythic awning have been restored to bring back the spirit of the Café La Granja, making it international while giving it a new lease on life.

Its central location and importance give this hostel a unique local neighbourhood character that is very Basque. This is reflected in the building, built in 1891 by the local architect Severino Achúcarro. Inside there are intimate spaces closer to the warmth of a home than to the coldness of a hostel chain. The interior decor is a counterpoint of the old and the new, of the present and the past, of the classic and the industrial. The industrial Bilbao of the old shipyards blends with the more traditional architecture, its rhythmic facades and colourful wood carpentry.
