This hostel is really well located right on the beach and only a 10 minute walk into town. There are only four room and when I stayed there were only six people but that was cool because it meant we all got to know each other really well. Breakfast was delicious. The bed was comfortable More

I had a great time al this hostel and in San Sebastián. Very close to the beach and when I arrived, I got so many information about where I should go out to eat and enjoy the place. Also the place was very cozy, However, I was not very pleasant when they charged me for 15 euros after More

Staff kept knocking on our door and bothering us in the mornings. At one point, a member of staff walked in without evening knocking. The room was tiny (you had to keep climbing over the bed if you moved) and the surrounding area is noisy. Not general noisy, but there are early morning More

Amazing location right in the heart of the old town surrounded by great food and bars and just minutes to the beaches either side. However, it if you are travelling solo and are looking to meet others at the hostel this is probably not the place for it. More

Reminded me of a B&B more then a hostel, the owners were very lovely. Perfect location, right in the middle of the old town. The only problem was that at night our lights kept flashing like a strobe so it was really hard to fall asleep, we heard another girl had the same problem staying More

The hostel is well-located and the staff very helpful. The kitchen is a bit limited in terms of appliances, but if you're not really looking to cook, then it's fine. You're also not meant to have alcohol with you, and given how pricey Pais Vasco is compared to the rest of Spain, it's nice More

This hostel is located VERY far from the city center and is difficult to access. I strongly do not recommend arriving at night, as the closest bus line stops running and it requires a walk through a very dark and empty park. However, the scenery by day is lovely and the park offers More

The main hostel was closed down for the season so it was a bit of a pain to find the replacement one with missing street signs. More

We stayed at this hostel, but at a separate location while the hostel under construction. It was fantastic! Walking distance from everything, great restaurant suggestions. San Sebastián kicks ass. More
