A good place in san sebastian. I made friends and everyone wants to party and have a good time here bc its san sebastian. Ppl usually end up extending their stay here so prepare yourself for that just in case. Otherwise the hostel is nice, a little crowded at times, and the rec room is a little bit too small.. I also got bed bugs but i was the only one that did at least when i was there, and thats also a risk at any hostel i suppose. Try it out! San sebastian is a beautiful city.

Great location in the old town and five minutes from the playa de la concha. Small hostel with rather small rooms. Functional. Friendly staff. There is a pub crawl a couple times a week organized by the hostel, however it was cancelled while we were there.

The location is amazing, on one of the busiest streets of the Old Town. The stuff was helpful and the overall condition of the hostel was good too. My only complain is that there were only 2 electrical sockets in a 6 beds dorm and, since it faced Plaza Constitución, the street noise was high. But other than that everything else was ok.

Pros: awesome location near all the best tapas and bars, you get to know everyone staying as it's quite small, the staff are excellent and help with anything and everything, the beds are comfy, good power points, hot showers, quite clean, good wifi. Cons: the place is tiny! No common area except for a tiny kitchen. It was a shock to me at first but it grew on me. When arriving, it's hard to tell whether you have the right flat unless you know the address. Overall, the staff make this place.

Had a great time. My only regret is that we couldn't go surfing and the staff weren't very helpful about that. I felt like they weren't really bothered bringing us surfing

Roger's house is a small hostel in the old town. It is one of the better hostels in town but is a bit of a shock when coming from new and modern hostels in larger cities. It is in a prime location, surrounded by bars and the beach and there are no curfews. It claims not to be a party hostel but everyone still goes out.. very difficult to sleep on weekends and because the place is small, you hear every noise. The staff were great - make sure you go when Mario makes paella! Would stay here again.

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.

Not for families. Our room was 3 double bunk beds, a school locker, and a curtain separating us from the next room. Power was supplied on a 4 socket extension from the next room. The 5 of us also had a room mate. At 40 euros per night per person. Choking.

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.

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.

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.
