My boyfriend and I stayed in the 4 bed mixed dorm. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. The owners were friendly and even offered to give us a new empty dorm when for our last night at no extra cost. The rooms are tiny but the communal areas are great and we met loads of cool people. We...

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...

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...

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,...
