Prim, 13-bajo (48006) BILBAO
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, Deusto University, etc.

- From the airport (Loiu): take Bizkaibus bus n A3247 at the stop opposite the arrivals gate, and get off at the Termibus bus station. Take the metro from there to Casco Viejo station and exit via Plaza Unamuno. Calle Prim is on the left-hand side of the square, and we are located just around the first bend (c/ Prim 13).

- From the bus station (Termibus): Take the metro to Casco Viejo station and exit via Plaza Unamuno. Calle Prim is on the left-hand side of the square, and we are located just around the first bend (c/ Prim 13).

- From the railway station (Abando): if your rucksack is heavy or you just don't feel like walking, you can take the Metro from the railway station to Casco Viejo and exit via Plaza Unamuno. But if you're up to it we recommend that you walk, since the main line station is quite close to the Old Town district. Just stroll down Calle Navarra and cross the El Arenal Bridge. On your left you will see the church of San Nicols. Take Calle Askao, the street which runs behind the church, to the right as far as Plaza Unamuno. Calle Prim is on the left-hand side of the square, and we are located just around the first bend (c/ Prim 13).

Located Near

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��������������Âs main sights, including the Guggenheim Museum Bilbao, the state-of-the-art Alh�ndiga 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 El�seos 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.
