I have more than enjoyed my stay at Ganbara Hostel. The (bath)rooms are clean and you get a great breakfast. Genial staff, I've got the chance to play table tennis with Àngel and would go back there anytime. Thank you Ganbara :)

The people working there was not passionate. They didnt feel like they love the hostel or gave much care about their guest. The bathroom in the room smelled horrible and it slips into the room so it was kinda nasty. Highly recommend them to clean up those bathroom or get rid of them altogether. We did not felt the same at this hostel as to the other 10 that we have stayed at. Good location near the old town thou.

Nice clean hostel. Staff is really friendly and willing to help. 1 minute walk to the old part of the town. Rooms are not super nice, but that's the only not so positive thing I can say about this hostel. I would definitely recommend it and will surely go back there when I go back to Bilbao.

I stayed in the hostel for a night in March, when the Couchsurfing meeting in Bilbao took place. In general, I liked the hostel a lot and it was a good relation price-quality. It was very clean and neat and I liked the commodities. However, on one morning someone pooed in the bathroom and nobody cleaned it for quite a lot of time. The smell went to the corridor and it was pretty unpleasant. But once again, I rate my stay positively overall.

Very good hostel overall, really friendly and helpful staff and excellent location in the very centre of the old town within very short walking distance of lots of bars and restaurants. Not much going on in the hostel itself but maybe was due to going off season. Other than that all great! Highly recommended!

Good location. They offer free breakfast (fruit, cereal, bread, cupcakes, jam, juice, coffee, tee, milk..), free locker + lock with keys, you can use the big kitchen to cook (they have all the utensiles) and the fridge to store your food. You can use the laundry machines (for a fee I guess, I didn't try them!). Everything was very clean. Big bathroom in-room. They printed my train ticket for me for free and lend me a celphone charger, all the staff was very very kind!

Ganbara is a great place, located right in the center of Bilbao! It's really much better than the pictures that we can see here on the website. I would just add towels and a little cheese with breakfast...and also individual electricity plugs and reading lights for each bed (just details that would make it even better) :)
