Reasonable hostel for the price, and well located. Nothing fancy, and the lights turn off very fast in the rooms, hallways, and bathrooms. Overall, an acceptable stay.

Hostel was fine...not a great atmosphere, not conducive to meeting people or making friends. Was quite expensive too as far as hostels go. As a whole was a bit disappointed given the really good reviews on here. Edorta was awesome though, great, friendly employee. If this review was just for him would be 10/10.

This hostel is fantastic. It's in a perfect location, just walking distance from old town. The common area is spacious with a great kitchen, although it could use a better toaster. The staff are friendly and helpful. The showers are hot and clean. Would stay here again!

I don't actually understand why this place is so high rated, I've been in 10 hostel at least and I find that is only a really "normal" one, nothing special!!! The location is ok, the staff is accommodating, but my room was nothing more than a really narrow corridor (and really it seems a corridor not a room) with 2 bunk beds and lockers. The common space were huge instead. Breakfast was ok, biscuits, milk, tea, cereals and fruit.

Clean and comfortable. Beds were nice, loved the extra long pillow. Good location in old town, close to bars and food. Also easy access to the metro.

Did not actually end up staying at Ganbara- due a problem with one of their rooms, they moved my booking to another hostel a ways outside the city. Wasn't the ideal situation, but the staff was very apologetic and helpful with the change in hostels.

Located right in the Casco and near many great bars and restaurants and well communicated by train. Great atmosphere with plenty of common areas to meet people. Full breakfast with many options. Only issues I had was with the lack of plugs in the room and the harsh overhead flourescent lights.
