The hostel is very nice and very well connected unfortunately the train or metro runs just by it so the rooms can be a bit noisey not ideal for light sleepers

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.
