It depends how you use Hibernate whether it is efficient or not, but there is no inherent inefficiency in the technology.

There's more than one kind of efficiency. Hibernate can make database access more efficient by dynamically constructing and optimizing database requests and by providing caching services.

However, there's also another type of efficiency. Hibernate provides a simple, well-documented standardized way to interact with databases. It can make less-experienced programmers more productive because they can spend more of their time and energy interacting with Java objects instead of becoming SQL experts. Of course, it can also provide hours of hair-tearing amusement in its own right. But as a whole, the application is generally going to be simpler and easier to develop and maintain if it's a complex app.
