The Experience

We have two tasks for you: we need someone to make beds (it only takes a couple of hours. This is an small hostel, so very easy!) and also a person who organizes activities for travelers (this is the best part): group games, trips, going to the beach, pub crowls, etc. Bilbao it´s a very friendly city, with a perfect size, not very big but not very small... We have surfing beaches, green mountains and very cool festivals that you´ll enjoy!

Josan y Oiane fueron super buenos conmigo. Las tareas fueron fáciles. Y tuve mucho tiempo para conocer y salir en Bilbao y ciudades cercanas. Gracias por todo Josan y Oiane, os voy a echar de menos y todo, y a los chicos del staff también Maria, Ian, Fer, Aurora y Nery! Hasta la próxima!

Ganbara Hostel es un lugar increíble, muy confortable y cálido, te da la oportunidad de conocer a muchas personas y aprender mil cosas. Josan y Oiane son más que magníficos, desde el primer momento me han hecho sentir como en casa, siempre están dispuestos a ayudarte. Las tareas en el hostel son sencillas y súper fáciles que el tiempo pasa volando y tienes casi todo el día libre para conocer.
¡El equipo es un amor, Nery, Iain, Fer, me los llevo en el corazón!
Bilbao es magnífico, siempre hay algo por descubrir, un mes no fue suficiente para conocerlo.
Sin duda alguna volveré. ¡Mil gracias!

Ganbara is an small and comfy hostel, Josan & Oiane are very very kind and can help with whatever you need, also the other Gambara staff are very friendly and you will enjoy hanging out with them. The tasks at the hostel are very easy to do and then you have lot of free time for you. Has been an amazing experience and thanks for everything.

Bilbao is an awesome city and the hostel is well located, you can get to meet a lot of people and guide them to the local places and also get you to know them; my stay was at low season so I have plenty of free time, although I was asked to help with beds and other easy tasks cause wasn't much to do with the guests.
You need to be flexible with where you stay and with the duties, and to search for things yourself cause they only give you few information.
