Stayed one night. Then got woken up in the morning to be told we had to leave because the hostel was shutting down. It seemed like someone's house anyway. We paid up front and never got our money back.


We were surprised to find this hostel is a temporary summer money making scheme in a residential apartment with about 5 rooms. There were only two bathrooms between 30 or so people. Security was terrible. Our locker wasn't even in our room and our key could open other lockers. However, it is in a great location and was the cheapest accomodation we could find. Overall, overpriced and unprofessional.

It was not a real hostel. Its an students apartment that they use by hostel at the summer season.


Wasn't as good as other hostels in that area for the money we paid. Left after our first night. The staff are great and helpful though Would be ideal for a single guy


really small but really nice. a nice living room. a good kitchen with microwave and all that stuff. :-) a nice staff. nice to hang out with them. or even go out with them. in the middle of the center. for going out at night and for going to the beaxh. if u want ur privacy u should better not go there. ;-)


This was the worst hostel of our trip, if you could even call it a hostel. It felt more like we were couch surfing in a guys apartment and paying exorbitantly for it. We booked a 6 bed dorm, which was cramped and cluttered, no sheets or pillowcases were provided. The staff we very unprofessional, we had to wake a guy up from napping on the couch to check in and there were only two bathrooms between at least 23 people. Location was good though.We left after one night despite having booked three.


The best hostel I have stayed at. The staff are great and the pub crawls were really fun. Would definitely stay here again.

Loved staying here!! Malte and Joa were awesome.


We had a very pleasant stay at the hostel. The staff was very nice and friendly and recommended some great Pintxo spots in old town. It was a cozy stay as it's located in an apartment building, and the location for visiting old town and San Sebastian is prefect.


The ups: - Nice staff and helpful. Excellent location, on the downtown (the centre), where you have everything just a few minutes walking from the hostel. The downs: - Extremely pricey, does not worth so much money. Small rooms,you barely have space for walking. Only two bathroms and, one of them,the door doesn't close properly. No free parking nearby. The only parkings close to the hostel are very expensive (20€ per day). Bad choice if you travel by car.
