Nice hostel to stay in, clean and friendly. Only social area is the kitchen table though which is closed off at 11pm.


Staff was friendly and helpful. Atmosphere is great! I was travelling with my brother and we met a lot of great people here. We showed up to San Sebastián for a couple of days and it was nonstop festivals so we couldn't leave! The beds are comfortable, although the pillows could be replaced. The kitchen is very nice, which is good because this is where everyone hangs out (there's no common room). I would definitely recommend this hostel.


Please get a spatula for your kitchen! Otherwise great hostel! Awesome vibe when I was there!

A very nice and centrally located hostel with wonderful staff. Only downside is that the common area is limited to the kitchen, which can make it difficult to meet people due to the size. Nonetheless, I'd definitely return!


If downstairs, prepare for noise from the road all night long especially if it is a weekend. Otherwise it has a great location. Staff were helpful but somewhat cold. Basic amenities and beds quite soft that you sink in them. Locker downstairs is tiny.


Great hostel, clean, comfortable beds. NO PRINTERS though :(


Very nice small hostel with a nice kitchen.


Small hostel with just the kitchen as a common area, which is nice because everyone socialises, but there's also nowhere else to go and it closes at 11pm. Most of the staff were friendly.


Cosy hostel and great staff. The size and layout of the hostel make it very easy to get to know other travellers which made it a really friendly place. The beds are not great but okay for a few nights.


Smaller cozy hostel. Communal space is small but forces people to interact which is a good thing. Walks and dinners they put on were good, I just think 15 euro was a bit steep for the walk. Really enjoyed my stay and would recommend and return.


Very nice staff, I was really welcomed there and by the time I left felt I made some new friends. Both Mario and Linda were very helpful and friendly. Paella and sangria night was a great way to meet other people staying there. Wonderful hike, too. You have to pay extra for both, but they're worth it. Clean bathrooms and kitchen. Room was good size with locker. Other guests were considerate when arriving late.


great hostel, staff made an amazing paella and free sangria for 6 euro. great location, the kitchen is the only common room.


Small hostel but was clean and tidy, only thing it's missing is a bigger chill out area, staff are awesome and they can help with what ever u need


staff were great, location was great, beds were awful.


Really good location, only spent the night there but would stay again.


The staff were very friendly here which almost made up for the lack of sleep you get. Lucky they provide you with free ear plugs! If you want to hang out with Aussie surfie stereotypes straight out of Puberty Blues, this place is for you. 🏄🏼


It's a short walk to all you need, bathrooms are kept really clean, kitchen is well equipped and the staff are lovely and incredibly informative. Rooms were good, with powerpoints beside every bed which is always bonus. Great hostel with good vibes, would definitely stay again!


All the facilities you need, but too small a common room to make it really cosy. Clean, fair WiFi and beds that are a little too hard. Very nice girl at the counter. Very secure.
