Having stayed in a poor hostel in San sebastian on the Friday 28th march this hostel saved the day on the 29th. Very clean, good rooms, communal rooms and very friendly and helpful staff. The location was great and easy to find. The only negative was there being no light in the showers however this I'm sure was a one... More

Great hostel with nice staff in a good location! Free breakfast in the mornings and free drinks all day. Great common area with lots of couches and tables for hanging out or watching tv. Everything was very clean and with a nice decor. Definitely recommend!

A pilgrim on the Camino de Santiago (northern route) would do well to stay here for a good rest; the staff are welcoming and accommodating, and the place is very relaxed, quiet, and a place to chill out. The simple breakfast is great to get going in the morning without trouble, and the kitchen is perfect for cooking. Plenty of... More

Good location right in the old town. Lovely setting and close to shops, bars and restaurants. Here for the festival so area was bustling. Good service, clean room and bedding. Highly recommend if travelling with friends.

I was really happy with my stay in Ganbara and the price was good. Very clean and nice rooms, clean and spacious kitchen, lots of room to eat and hang out, two televisions, at least two computers with free internet connection, good laundry room, etc. Nothing but good to say about that place! Oh and the location is also great!

This was a great hostel in Bilbao. We only stayed 1 night but it was perfect: cheap, very clean, friendly staff, lateish checkout. It's very close to the train station and main area of the town. A really good option if you're in Bilbao for a few days. Enjoy

I stayed at Ganbara Hostel at the end of April since I was travelling alone. It wasn't high season so the hostel wasn't too crowded, therefore not so noisy as expected (but anyway I'm always prepared with ear plugs when I'm staying in a hostel). It's new, it's clean, great location, amazing friendly stuff, basic breakfast (cornflakes, fruits, biscuits,marmalades,bread, milk,... More

The Ganbara Hostel has a very good location, and all the facilities are quite new. It looked all very clean and new. The staff was very helpful, in a couple of minutes the front desk guy pointed me all the important and nice places to visit in my short stay in Bilbao. The hostel has 2 common rooms, great place...
