This hostel is great. Staff is super helpful (just make sure to go to the bar downstairs if no one answers the bell). Hostel is absolutely beautiful--- the best shower I have ever used in a hostel. No stove, and pretty sparsely populated in the off-season, but otherwise, an incredibly comfortable place to stay super close to the best beach.

Simply the best hostel I stayed in Europe. Super chilled out and very clean. Comfy beds and the best people working there to give all the local tips and knowledge of places to go, things to do and food/drinks etc. A big thank you to Sandra who was 10/10 all the way. Would definitely go back!

Dope spot! Close to the beach. It feels more like an apartment than a hostel which is cool. Nice bathrooms too. The vibe here is great! Best part about it was the friendly atmosphere!

Nice place, great location. The place is a little small. Also seemed a little overpriced.

This small hostel makes it easy to make friends and has a very relaxed vibe. Not a bad word to say!

There are many hostels that are nice but forgettable and then there are a select few which you have such good experiences at, that you'll never forget! This is one of those few. The facilities aren't perfect (hooks on the back of the shower doors would be useful) but the staff are amazing and the moment you arrive you feel at home. It is a great place to make new friends and it is easy to see why pretty much everyone ends up extending their stay. I look forward to returning one day soon!

A bit more expensive of a hostel and a vibe that feels more bed & breakfast than hostel but that's what I was looking for during my time in San Sebastian anyway. Gorgeous facilities. Didn't like how guests were sort of pushed to try a surfing lesson with the woman at the hostel however, it was clear that there was commission in it for her.

Great hostel, clean and secure - boards and wetsuits to rent were fine but also lots of surf rental shops nearby if they don't have what you need. No drinking in the hostel when I was there in October 2016 which was a shame if you just wanted a quiet beer in the afternoon or something.
