Coliving in Bilbao

Bilbao is a northern port city in Spain and de facto capital of Basque country. It’s ideal for digital nomads seeking a coliving experience in a city of perfect size - not too big and certainly not too small.

Don’t even think about asking for tapas here - in the Basque region they’re called “pintxos.” Meaning “toothpick food,” the correct pronunciation is “peen-chos.” Like many coastal cities in Spain, there is plenty of fish to eat - cod is the regional specialty, which is prepared several ways here.

Bilbao has a temperate, subtropical climate. Temperatures are quite mild, with the high 50s in the winter and high 70s in the summer. Nights are always cool. Like much of northern Europe, the city has high rainfall, giving the region its luscious, green color.

The Guggenheim is undoubtedly the most famous landmark in the city. There are lots to do including visiting Ribera, Europe's largest indoor market. Architecture tours are an awesome idea when visiting - there are several! Remote workers who enjoy music love to find coliving spaces here - when musicians or bands go on tour, they usually stop in Bilbao. The city also hosts a ten-day-long summer festival.

Getting around Bilbao is as easy as any big city - there are busses, subway, and streetcars. Don't worry about getting home because the subway runs all night on Saturdays.

Here are some fun facts about Bilbao:

- The Basque community is fairly autonomous with their own regional government and police force
- The Guggenheim's exterior is covered in around 33 000 titanium sheets, which give off a different color depending on weather and light conditions.
- While the Guggenheim looks like a flower from above, it looks more like a boat when observing it from the ground
- The people of Bilbao are so proud, that in the 18th century, there was a law penalizing ingratitude.
- Basque Country has its own language that is linguistic different from other European languages - 50% of residents speak it

Finding affordable communal living in Bilbao

Finding affordable housing in Bilbao can be tough, especially in cities with high rent prices. One solution that many people turn to is communal living with shared spaces and roommates. This can be a cost-effective way to have a private room while still being able to afford rent in a desirable location. There are a few different options for finding a shared living arrangement in Bilbao. One option is to look for a private room for rent in a coliving home. This can be a good option for people who want some privacy, but still want to be part of a community. Another option is to look for a shared room, where you'll be sharing a bedroom with one or more roommates. This can be more affordable, as you'll only be responsible for paying for your own bed. The downside is that you'll have less privacy, as you'll be sharing a bedroom with others. You can find both accommodation options on Coliving.com. We can help you find a compatible roommate based on your preferences and lifestyle. Some hosts do background checks and eviction history checks to ensure that the roommates you're living with are trustworthy individuals. When looking for a shared living arrangement, it's important to do your due diligence and make sure that you're comfortable with the living arrangement and the people you'll be living with.
