Bilbao has a lot to offer, and at the Ganbara Hostel you will be just a few steps from it all. It is within walking distance of the city’s main sights, including the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the state-of-the-art Alhóndiga cultural centre, the Fine Arts Museum, the Basque Museum, the Archaeology Museum, the La Ribera produce market, the Palacio Euskalduna concert hall, the Arriaga and Campos Elíseos theatres, the local government headquarters, Deusto University, etc.
If you stay with us you can wander the streets and watch the people going about their everyday lives, which is always the best way to get to know a city. Lose yourself in the maze of narrow streets in the Old Town, try the local bar snacks, known as pintxos, take a long, leisurely bike ride along the banks of the river, take in an exhibition, enjoy a concert … and live life in Bilbao the way that the locals do.
The Ganbara Hostel has 62 beds in 13 rooms for 4, 6 or 8 people each. All our rooms are unisex, and are fitted with lockers. Breakfast is included in the price. Ganbara Hostel is the most centrally located hostel in Bilbao: it is based in the "Seven Streets" of the Old Town district, from where all the main tourist attractions of the city are easily accessible.
It is just 50 m from a Metro station that will take you wherever you want to go. But it is also so well situated that the city's main sights are within easy walking distance. Or you could take the tram: the nearest stops are La Ribera and Arriaga. This is an ideal way to get to know the more modern areas of the city, as it runs through the Abandoibarra district, which is home to the Guggenheim Museum, the Isozaki towers, the Iberdrola tower, the Zubi-zuri footbridge, etc.
