The best hostel ever!!!!


100%

I was wanting to learn to surf and couldn't have picked a better place than Surfing Etxea hostel in San Sebastián! Staff was so friendly and willing to help anytime. Easily can just grab a board and wet suit and walk 2 minutes to the beach. Great location. I would love to go back in the future!

Super rad hostel, chill vibes all around.

This hostel is one of the best I've stayed in so far in my travels. Location, facilities, and staff are all excellent. Just a few minute walk to the beach, and there is surf and boogie board equipment available for 10 euro/day. Also longboards available. Environment is also excellent. Is definitely a place I look forward to returning to.

Amazing hostel, location is perfect right across from the beach and they have wetsuits and boards if you want to go for a surf. Staff were great, and very helpful with lots of handy hints about bask culture and the best places to see/visit/ and eat cheap pinxos. I booked there for 3 days and ended up spending a week. Amazing place would definety reccommend it ! :)

Perfect hostel for a chill vibe. David & Artiz are hilarious. Insanely close to the surfing beach and the best sushi place of life. Short 10 minute walk into the Old Town.

This is a great hostel. My sister and I were traveling for a few days and we had an amazing time here. The owners and the atmosphere were both awesome, super friendly, and relaxing. I loved the interior design and everything was clean and safe. It's super close to the beach and a short (like 5ish min) walk to Parte Vieja for pintxos. I will 100% stay here next time I come to San Sebastian. Super buena honda!!

Great place, will definitely stay here again one day in Summer, a little quiet in the Winter months though. Very cheap surfboard rental as well was great. Aritz does a great job running this place, looking forward to returning one day!

This hostel is pretty awesome. Perfect location close to the beach and the old part of town. I booked a 6 bedroom dorm but I ended up being the only one in it the whole time which was nice cause it was super quiet. There's a free breakfast - toast with jam, cereal and coffee. The bathrooms are my only complaint - only two for all the rooms and the showers are separated by a curtain which may not leave much privacy. Great hostel though! Super clean and modern. Felt more like a home than a hostel

Great hostel, perfectly located and nice stuff! There was just a locker for our door missing, so you could only lock from the inside, which was not too convenient. Only thing to complain about! Great stay!
