Ganbara Hostel is a contemporary space that's fun and affordable. We'll help you save money with free Wi-Fi and sheets – and most importantly, a free breakfast! Our guest kitchen means you won't need to splash your cash on meals out. Free coffee and tea saves euros and opens up conversation. Just grab a cup alongside another traveller in our bar or one of our lounges. And when you're not chatting, make the most of the Wii and table tennis!


We're in the Seven Streets Old Town area – pretty much the centre of the city – less than a 10-minute walk to cool cultural stuff, including the neoclassical architecture and Sunday flea market at Plaza Nueva and the food stalls at La Ribera Market. The famous Guggenheim Museum, with its photo-worthy exterior and constantly changing exhibits, is 30 minutes away by foot. You can get to us from Bilbao Airport in about half an hour in a taxi or by metro.

Rooms and Dorms

We have mixed or female-only dorms with secure lockers, and there are private rooms too if you don't fancy sharing. Just like the dorms, these either come with en-suites or communal bathrooms. There's air con throughout the hostel for respite in the summer if you've spent a day out in the strong Spanish sun.

Extras and activities

Our reception never closes, so you can get travel tips from staff anytime. They'll also lend you hairdryers at no charge, and towels are available to hire. You're welcome to use our printer if you'd rather have your boarding pass in your hand. If you're checking out early but leaving Bilbao late, we have luggage storage for your backpack while you take a last-minute boat trip on the Nervión River. If you rent one of our bikes, you can get there in 12 minutes.

    The staff were so friendly and accommodating, allowing me to check in early when I didn't give them any warning. After several days of travel, it was nice to be somewhere welcoming and easy to navigate. The location is fantastic - just a minute from old town and about 20 minutes walking along the river to the Guggenheim. Highly recommend.

    Had a great time at Ganbara! Super impressed with the cleanliness of the rooms and other facilities. Having two hangout spots was great for when you just wanted to chill out. Staff were okay, not the most energetic but there to assist with anything when you asked. Breakfast was also great! Would definitely stay here again, location was gorgeous too.

    Chill place, nice and helpful staff. Walking distance to the center of the city and a metro station. Breakfast is simple but enough and you can bring your own food and cook for yourself. Rooms could be cleaner ;)

    Just what you’d expect out of a hostel. Bathroom in room and in the halls, bar, free breakfast- basic but free is free. Pretty centrally located. No issues.
