This hostel is located VERY far from the city center and is difficult to access. I strongly do not recommend arriving at night, as the closest bus line stops running and it requires a walk through a very dark and empty park. However, the scenery by day is lovely and the park offers stunning views! Overall, this was a good value place to stay or somewhere to relax, but not ideal for visiting and exploring the city.


It was a delightful and charming place. Access was a little difficult since it's a bit of a hike from the closest Metro and bus stations but other than that, I really enjoyed my stay. The rooms and hostel were clean, the staff friendly, and it was a very relaxing place to end an evening.


Nice, clean hostel. The location is not great but it's quite easy to get to the centre of San Sebastián by bus. Not much atmosphere but a good budget hostel.


This hostel is very strange. So much potential yet spoilt by its lack of atmosphere and size. It's super modern, new and it's surroundings are great but they just haven't got it quite right. The kitchen is great yet they have an awful selection of utensils etc. The staff try their best and are generally friendly but are too busy to give time to guests. I was also woken up at 3am by staff to tell me that I was in the wrong bed and when someone slept in my bed, I had to move dorms at 1am.Not cool.


This hostel is a bit far from the city but has easy access to the bus stops and if you like nature, the location is GORGEOUS. It is up a hill in the middle of a forest and the scenery is lovely. Well worth the price and a great place to stay.


Got there after a huge walk and was so far away from everything. Copped the booking fee and found another hostel in town. Not worth being so far out of the city.


Hostel was clean and rooms and bathrooms were new which was nice. Unfortunately this hostel had zero atmosphere and culture. The kitchen had absolutely no knives, maybe because the staff were a little scared someone might kill themselves from boredom, this made cooking a little hard. Staff were friendly but not so great at giving directions. Location was far from the centre which was fine during the day, the problem was when the buses would stop around 9pm.


Location is a fair way out of San Sebastian itself, but it's pretty easy to get there, just takes a bit of time! Facilities were clean and the rooms super secure! Wifi sucked, but I think they were planning on fixing it soon (?). The staff were pretty helpful, we originally only booked one night, but easily booked a second night. Overall pretty good!


I like this hostel and its parkside location, even if far from the town centre. The staff were super. Perhaps because the hostel is so new, it has an austere, barren, high-tech atmosphere. It needs color (posters, paintings on the walls), living plants, warmth.


Difficult to reach but if you are going by car it's worth once the place/park is amazing. The staff is really attentious, while there is no much required from them (various check in and check out at the same time). The wifi works well but it's not stable, everytime you have to reconnect it. The cafeteria is extremely expensive with few options and little food on the plate.


Green nest was a really awesome hostel one of the best that I have stayed in. The rooms were very clean and the beds were extremely comfortable. To get there is a bit if a walk, but the views are amazing and well worth the walk. Since it is in the middle of a park there are bugs, so I would bring bug spray if you decide to stay here. If you don't like nature and want somewhere with bars and partying this isn't the hostel for you. I loved it though!


The staff were lovely and helpful, however i moved rooms every night because the hostel was 'full', and spent most of my time in the room by myself


This could be a really good hostel, but it falls down in a number of ways. It's a long way from the centre of town, which is OK as there are buses, but the directions you're given are terrible. It's not a case of 'walking straight' once you get to the park. It's a maze! Bit cheeky to describe the breakfast as 'continental' too. Two mini cupcakes isn't a continental breakfast. The staff are fine and it's clean enough I suppose, but there's too much about this place that just isn't quite right.


This was hands down the best hostel I've ever stayed at! I loved it! The service was friendly, rooms were so clean and it was beautiful! It was not easy to find though. The directions on the website were no help. Even so best stay so cheap and value for money.


Great hostel with good security, cleanliness and facilities. The location is terrible it is up a 50min walk or 5min walk and then a 20 min bus from the city.


if this place had a good location it'd be one of the best hostels out there. however, we walked to the beach everyday and its only a 30-40 minute walk.


Once you've located the hostel, in the middle of a very nice park, you're welcomed friendly and get all the information you want. + beautiful and clean building + one bathroom in every bathroom + possibility to rent a bike, bar/restaurant next door, bus stop close. - very warm rooms - directions to the hostel are really not that clear


This place is located miles away from civilisation. It was located on top of a huge hill in the jungle. Air conditioning did not work so had to leave the window open, then got eaten alive by Mosquitos. Kitchen had barely any utensils and wifi was not so good.


Nice and clean with comfortable rooms. The common area/dining room are big but feel cold and stark, it could do with some comfortable couches to create a warmer atmosphere. It's about 40 mins to walk into town and it's a nice walk so I'd recommend doing that since the buses and trains finish early. The cafeteria meals are overpriced but there's a big supermarket nearby and the kitchen is adequate to cook meals.
