Hostels in Bilbao: San Mamés as you've never seen it before
Enter the heart of Bilbao and discover its narrow streets and its great atmosphere 😉
The San Mamés area takes its name from the San Mamés football ground, formerly known by fans as La Catedral. The stadium was completely renovated in 2013, almost 100 years after its inauguration, to host some of the most important events of the competition. In fact, it was awarded two years later, in 2015, by UEFA as one of the best sports buildings in the world. Its influence transcends sport itself to offer to be a meeting place where you can taste typical dishes of Basque gastronomy while feeling the warmth of its fans.
You don’t have to be a big fan of the beautiful game to appreciate the majesty of the San Mamés stadium and all that is to be found near one of Bilbao’s most touristy neighborhoods. For this reason, it is possible to find a wide range of hotels and hostels in the center of Bilbao, which are well connected to facilitate your visit.
In fact, if you are looking for a hostel near the Guggenheim Museum, the San Mamés area may be the best option. The Guggenheim Museum gave the port area a radical makeover, transforming the once cold and abandoned landscape into one of the most attractive areas of the city. This contemporary art museum, the work of acclaimed architect Frank O. Gehry, is itself a piece of art in the pure avant-garde style of the 20th century. Stroll around the surrounding area, where you will also find other works such as the well-known Puppy or the spider Maman.
