This was a great little hostel and Miguel is a truly wonderful hostel owner: he seems to work all hours of the day and night and will give you the most thorough introduction and tips for you stay I think I have ever had the pleasure of experiencing. There are only two dorm rooms I think so the atmosphere is quite intimate, but all of our fellow travellers were lovely and so we had a great time staying in this hostel. Feels more like a home than a hostel!


Very close to La Concha beach where I could spend hours relaxing


Lovely place. Hostel owners struggling with English but they can understand you and we communicated well enough. Clean place, new towels everyday, bed made and a short walk to the old town. Definitely recommended.


Miguel was awesome as were the other hostel guests. This was our favorite hostel out of our entire trip. Fresh towel and sheets every day and everything is very clean and in good shape. Miguel doesn't speak a ton of English, but he still gets you what you need or where you need to go.


Pension Amalur in San Sebastián is a gem and I would recommend it to any traveler or group of travelers looking for a clean, secure, inexpensive alternative to a hotel. The "hostel," which feels more like a home, is located just minutes from the water and is in a very safe, central part of the city. Beds are very comfortable and everything was so spotless and new. The house, however, still retains its character making staying here an experience in itself. Miguel, the owner, is just wonderful! :)


We stayed in Pension Amalur for 4 nights and was so nice! its a lovely magical place in the center of town, so near to everywhere and if you travel with a car you get a good discount for a nearby parking lot. Miguel the owner is a real gentelman and helped us and welcomed us even though his english his poor with heaps of patiance and kindness. Superb.


The owner of the hostel is very nice and really takes the time to make you feel at home and to give you good tips. The private room was perfect,and really clean. The bathroom was nice and had a good shower. The beds were a bit uncomfortable and caused me some back pain.


Pension Amalur is not really a hostel, but it is a good cheap place to stay in the centre of San Sebastian. The place is very close to the beach and about 10 minutes walk from the old town, with its bars and restaurants. The host doesn't speak English, but is very genial and helpful and gets the message across. The rooms are clean and the showers hot and powerful.


This place was 100% better than expected! Only about 3 blocks away from the main part of town and easy to get to from the train station, I couldn't have asked for better. Not your typical "party hostel", but a good one where you can chill and meet new people and discover things. The owner is the sweetest man alive (while not knowing any english, but no worries), and helped us find everything and told us about places where we had to go. Everything was clean with plenty of room; even the bathrooms


I really enjoyed staying here! Everything zent really well...wonderful hospitality.
