Small hostel but really good as a solo traveller because you become a bit of a family. Excellent location and they do a great job taking the hostel group out for pinchos tour and Thursday pincho night! Would definitely come back!
Had a great stay at Olga's place. Like many other reviews, it really feels like you are staying at a friends or family's place. There is always something going on whether it be a pub or pintxo crawl or even Raffa's home cooked paella. Only thing I could fault was only 2 bathrooms and never really had a hot shower. would stay again for sure though.
The best part of staying at this hostel were the great people that I met. It truly has a great atmosphere. The doors were left open all the time, but it never felt unsafe. Olga was incredibly nice and helpful, but sometimes it was difficult to find a staff member around. The location is good because it's right next to the surfer's beach. It's not in the old part of town, but it takes less than 10 minutes to walk there.
This was a great hostel, felt like a home more then anything. The beds were really comfy and it's super close to the surf beach. The pinchos crawl was fantastic, if your there for it definitely go! It's difficult to find so google map it before you go.
Lovely little hostel located next to the beach. You'll enjoy your time there.
Great location and fantastic atmosphere! The hosts were so lovely and friendly. The kitchen is small but adequate for cooking meals. There are only two bathrooms which you sometimes have to wait for but everything was very clean. There wasn't much space to chill out with fellow backpackers but the quality people and relaxed atmosphere make up for it. I would definitely stay there again!
Really lovely staff, good size rooms, comfortable beds and fantastic location !
Okay hostel, good location, very expensive and no wifi
THE BEST HOSTAL EVER!!!! They were so kind and helpful. I got robbed one night, so Rafa, Olga and Leo (the ones who has the hostal) really helped me out. Brought me to the police station, borrowed me money and made me food. They felt like your family. Apart from this the hostal had a great atmosphere, was always superclean (you could walk around without shoes inside) and the most awesome people who lived there. I would definetely go back!

Staying at this hostel was like being at home with the family. Everyone was so lovely and friendly, we didn't know each other for a long time but we had a great time together. Lei was excellent in taking everyone out for different activities each night. A relaxed place in a great location! I'll be back.
I know that San Sebastian is a very expensive city, but still charge 25 euros pp for only a bed is too much. On the other way, the staff in the hostel was very nice and receptive.
Smaller hostel. Good vibe but small common areas. Great informal tapas tour.
Great hostel! Awesome for meeting people and the organized nights out lead by Leo were fantastic - thanks Leo! There seemed to be a lot of people staying there but it's still relatively quiet and it's clean. People who complain about cold showers need to get up earlier ;) I never had an issue. If only it had of been sunny it would have been a perfect spot - oh well ya can't help the weather!
For San Sebastián travelers, this is a must stay. The staff are very helpful and lead a tapas and bar crawl on the weekends (maybe also during the week too, I'm not sure). The hostel is separated into multiple rooms with a main room for all so you get to meet fellow guests if you like. If you aren't into the party scene, it's ok, the hostel isn't located on the main bar drag so you shouldn't be kept up. The price is definitely worth what you get. Would definitely stay again!
Loved it. 2nd time we have stayed here and highly recommend it. Staff get everyone involved in the hostel and makes it easier to meet everyone! Will be going back for sure!!
very good "hostel". its basically 2 separate apartments and as I was no in the main apartment is was very relaxed in mine. friendly people there and the guy running orginises stuff every night to go out. would stay there next time.
Great atmosphere in the hostel - it's in basically a big flat so there's a homely, communal vibe. Easy to meet people and there's something to do each night. Rammed full of Aussies - as is most of San Sebastián. Location was decent, by the trendier beach and rooms were clean and comfortable. Only downside was the lack of hot showers
