The tiny dorm room was packed with 3 sets of bunks, with one power outlet for 6 people. Nowhere to hang towels, or shelves for top bunks. The beds were so small my ankles and dangled off the end, the mattess was old thin foam, pillow was very old, brown, lumpy and really smelly, sheets were threadbare. Room had no ventilation except the window, where the plaza beyond was extremely loud all day and night, no curtains to block out light. Did not sleep at all.
Though many physical things are "average" about this hostel, the things that really matter were above average- the warm, friendly staff and the positive vibes from fellow backpackers. Great social hang out with a quiet time starting at 2300. Excellent location; go for the group dinner (paella was delicious)! Mario made me a huge batch special tea when I was sick that made me feel better. I'll always remember this place! Met some great people.
It was absolutely a wonderful experience! :) They are overbooked but they let me stay at the beach hostel San Sebastian and it turned out to be great. Great location, very clean, friendly and helpful staff with social events . And if you want to make your own food, the kitchen is enough for making a proper meal. Highly recommend anyone if you want to meet people and have a good time in San Sebastian !

Staff were awesome, especially our boy Pedro! Bathroom facilities are tight but nothing too dramatic. Killer location, right in the central of all the bars and food. 5 minute walk to the beach. Definately would comeback if we were in San Sebastián again. Taylor, tom, jack Australia!!

Really good location and helpful staff! Is a bit expensive for what you get but it was the best hostel we stayed in in San Sebastián.
This hostel had great location, right in the middle of old town. It was only a few minutes to get to the beach and less to get to the market or bars. Everyone who works here was helpful and more than nice. They were very knowledgeable on the area and ensured that people knew their way around and had a good time. The organized events were great to, especially for San Fermin. I will definitely be back when I return to San Sebastian.
Friendliest hostel, Good vibes.

Excellent staff, very nice and helpful! There is not a lot of common space, but they organize fun outings with opportunities to meet people/get to know the city.
This was the best hostel experience I have had in a long time. Upon entry the staff and other travellers were extremely welcoming. Mario and Pedro, two staff members, were exceptional hosts, and even cooked an amazing paella for everyone. It genuinely felt like a house rather than a hostel. Great location and you could access cheaper surf lessons and do a free 2.5 hour walk to Pasajes through the hostel too.
Fantastic staff, location, pixtos & paella nights.
Pro: Great location, even better staff, free breakfast, you have to try mario's paella and sangría! Great atmosphere Cons: sheets smelled bad. Very few showersand no place to hang your things when you're showering
I think the atmosphere was great. This is the place if you want to know what's happening in the city and maybe find friends with whom to go out.
You really could tell the hostel were taking advantage of there being few hostels in the city to charge prices that were really too high for such accomodation. That said, you couldn't complain about the standard of the place.
This is a great hostel with the best staff ever! Very fun and laid back atmosphere, super clean and perfectly located in an area with plenty of great pintxos and super close to the beach.
The hostel is very well located, next to the beach, to several bars and nice places that you can enjoy the tapas. The staff was really attentive, with many recommendations of cool places to visit and helping me and my friends with every question we had. It was a short but a nice stay! Gracias!
Totally awesome place to stay! The staff was extremely nice, helpful and most of all friendly! Missed the place as soon as I left. Mario was a great host and he makes the best sangria and Spanish dishes! Plus, San Sebastian was just plain awesome! Also made a lot of new great friends which we traveled together afterwards, very cool experience.
Cool place to hang, but noisy and social, so great place if u are on a gap year or holiday and want to party, but if travelling for work, maybe not the best place. The people are super great, solo welcoming, and really friendly, so deaf worth a stay if u are in the area.
Great hostel and great staff. Very small but ends up being very cozy
A nice place in a good location. The staff is very friendly and they will help you and give you reccommendations.
This was one of the most amazing hostels I've ever been to. It is not big, but the atmosphere is incredible. The staff is the best, they are all very chill, they organized a night of paella de Roger's House and delicious sangria, we went out to different pinchos bars, they help you whenever you need just to make you feel comfortable. They also offer surf lessons at a reasonable price, which was an incredible experience. The place just grows on you, as does San Sebastian. Definitely going back!
