This hostel is really nice, and super well located. The only thing I didn't love about it was that there's not a reception desk, but staff is super nice, very helpful, and the facilities are nice. There are only two bathrooms/showers but I never had to wait to use one. Comfortable bed. Nice areas to relax and a kitchen. Right by all the best tapas, and not too far from the beach. Highly recommend.

The facilities were modern and clean and there were no windows in my room so I got a great nights sleep. The location was perfect. The hostess were very helpful. However if you are travelling by yourself and want to meet people you will struggle as there is no real common area and it's mainly couples staying there.

I spent two nights here and it was absolutely wonderful. A fantastic location for dining and shopping, as well as walking to the port, La Concha beach and Monte Urgull. A great atmosphere, a nice kitchen for cooking, small common area, laundry if you need it, and a discount at the restaurant where check-in is. The only downside is that it's about a 25 minute walk to the bus station but it's close to bus stops that you can take to the main bust station. I would absolutely recommend staying here!

Nice hostel, very friendly staff and great people! But it is too busy on the streets outside, it is a very noisy place and you can barely sleep. Also no Air Conditioner.. very hot.

I can't speak highly enough of this hostel. Great facilities, right in the centre of the action, and the friendliest staff. San Sebastian is a fantastic destination and Kaixo is the perfect place to stay.

Not the hottest water in shower stayed 5 nights and Showers never improved. Always child - hot - cold warm. Other than that, I liked the hostel.

Such a great hostel. Nice rooms, bathroom and great location. Felt safe and very happy there. Not a party hostel as such but the nightlife is good in San Sebastián, so just leave the hostel. Also would like a bigger safe but other than that I would definitely be back. Loved my stay there.

I stayed here with my friend and sister in a 3-bed room. The reception is a bar/cafe downstairs that sells really tasty food and there is a 10% discount for staying at the hostel. The hostel is a converted floor of an apartment block above. The room was clean with a Juliet balcony overlooking the the street below. There is use of a communal kitchen. Overall, a lovely place to stay in San Sebastián.

I loved the staff at Kaixo, always friendly, helpful & smiling. The room I was in was a bit stuffy, with no window it had no air flow and being so close to kitchen was a bit noisy with other guests. I would also suggest that the bathrooms should provide hand soap at the wash basins. Other than that, no complaints.

Stayed two nights and was completely satisfied :) the hostel's well located, and its clean. Kaixo's missing a social vibe though, but i guess its such a tiny hostel one can't blame them. The staff more than make up for it, specially Irati and Caroline! They're super chill and really try and make the guests feel chill and at home. Biggest bonus is the cafe downstairs 'Iratxo Taberna'. The food's great and they have a nice terrazza. Try the txakoli. Definitely would stay here again

Had private room w/ 2 single beds. Small hostel with maybe 6 rooms, looks like house converted into hostel. Reception is in cafe below, really nice cafe and friendly staff. They provide some outings and tours which is nice. It is hard to find the hostel a bigger more obvious sign would help. Overall really liked this place and would recommend. My room was facing the street and was quite loud at night, no fault of the hostel though.

This was a really well run hostel with a very high attention to detail. If I had to be a little pedantic it would be that a room with a window for more than a one stay would be good. A place to wash a small amount of clothes without using the washing machine would help a lot. I enjoyed my stay.

Great location and value for the money. Very new and safe feels like an apartment home. You can use the laundry for 5E and also use the common kitchen. Showers and bathroom is clean and nice. Very comfortable single beds! The staff is nice. My only complaint is that no group activities are really organized here so you just make friends or are on your own. I would definitely stay here again! They also have a discount from the bar/kitchen next door which is a great deal. Super secured and safe!
