Liked: Great common areas, nice location, just by the metro and in the old city, friendly staff and environment

Disliked: The 4bed dorm is very small and basic. The main problem it has is that it has a very bad air ventilation, the window does only very slightly open (it is on the street so I guess for safety reasons) and there is no air circulation, so the room ends up smelling very bad and humid.

Liked: Pretty good kitchen and reasonable included breakfast. hostel is big with a good communal eating/chilling space. pool table is pretty cool although its 1euro per game. The vending machines sell all kinds of crazy stuff, staff are nice and its clean as you could hope for. All round good hostel, would stay again! also for some reason everyone in the old town seems to be smoking really nice smelling cigarettes???

Disliked: whilst I was there it was pretty much empty, with the odd fellow traveller to chat to.. however it was around march so it was kinda expected. It also rained a lot which gave me a chance to enjoy some Walker texas ranger on the flat screen ;)

Liked: Ganbara is the best hostel I have ever stayed in - and I have travelled a fair bit! It is run by travellers for travellers and has thought of all the little things that people staying in hostels commonly need. You get a lock for your locker on arrival, breakfast is standard and tea and coffee are free all day. The wifi is strong and kitchen well stocked, and you can even hire a reading light from the very friendly staff of late night reading is your thing. If I come back to Bilbao, I will stay at ganbara again

Disliked: Nothing

Liked: Good location, in an area with a lot of cool bars and a decent nightlife etc. The rooms were good-sized and kept clean. The common areas were very large so there was always plenty of room to sit around and socialise.

Disliked: The hostel didn´t seem to create any social outlets for its guests. Still was a good hostel. The people in the hostel were cool but the hostel itself didn´t create any atmosphere.
