In our Bilbao hostel there are two large common areas: La Granja, which includes the reception desk of the hotel and a lively bar for drinks or something to eat; and El Txoko, where breakfast is served and events and activities are organised.
Bilbao, our common rooms in the Hostel
This is a basement multipurpose area for socializing. It has exposed brick walls, old wood and powerful materials like steel and concrete. There are different nods to the mythic café from which it takes its inspiration, such as illustrations on the walls, patterns, the border on its awning and even its name.
The bar is another catalysing element of the place’s identity, and makes specific reference to the city’s old shipyards and their materials. There is a DJ booth and a reception area, making it the epicentre and soul of our hostel in Bilbao.
Around it, among the pillars and masonry, there is a large area for working, eating, drinking and laughing. And a neon sign illuminates a phrase by Pío Baroja about the city: Bilbao lives in its estuary like a Cossack on his horse
A multi-purpose room that changes according to the hour of the day, with the support of a kitchen for guests, a bar, a television set, and a sound system that has been adapted to the space. The tables make it possible for the area to be used for breakfasts, and for organizing parties or pop-up events in the very heart of Bilbao.
