Really good atmosphere and sweet people. A little crazy from FIBA and such, and the staff wasn't quite as outgoing as some of the others I've stayed at. They didn't ask me if I needed any city help or anything, though I'm sure they are knowledgeable of their city, so I'd loved to have seen them use that.

Modern hostel in a good location in Bilbao. Enjoyed the social atmosphere - lots of travellers, not just tourists. Cleanliness is a problem - six person room with an ensuite that was not cleaned in 3 days - gross.

Easy to get to, just a quick metro ride from the main bus station in Bilbao. Good wifi. Huge common rooms. Staff were friendly/helpful.

Very nice hostel, didn't stay long enough to meet people, but there wasn't too much mingling anyway. But everything else about the hostel is really great!

Great place! Nice breakfast, clean/comfy beds. Big and nice common area for meeting people. Not a party hostel but great to hang and meet new people.

The hostel is in a great location, but it is near a busy street, which can create problematic noise for those wishing to sleep. The hostel dorm room got a bit stuffy. A fan would have been nice. The security is excellent - they control who enters (buzzing people in/out), give you a key card for your room and a lock and key for the locker. One thing I really enjoyed was the staff. Oh, they also plan fun activities! All in all, a good hostel and I would stay here again in the future.

We only stayed for one night but Ganbara had everything we needed, was in a good location and was clean & safe. They hosted a dinner which all the guests helped to prepare which made it a lovely atmosphere to meet the other people in. The staff were also excellent!

A good place for traveling group of friends and young people.Staff is great and really helpful.Good atmesphere.But...If you want to find a quiet place to have a rest and have a good sleep, then this place would not be good.When I was trying to sleep that night, a group of people were watching movies outside the door and it was really noisy.Outside the window, during the whole night, cars passing by, people talking and laughing...I didn't sleep well.

Generally a good hostel. Felt like a burden to staff when checking in and out. Would stay elsewhere on a return trip to Bilbao despite great location in the older part of Bilbao.

Feels a little like a prison in the rooms but definitely a great hostel and great value for money. Staff was very helpful and have 24 hour reception. Good lounge room and kitchen definitely the right place to stay if in Bilbao

Great location. Hostel and lots of facility's. Wasn't the cleanest of places. The bathrooms don't look like they get a vacuum very often. Kitchen was clean though.
