We had a lovely stay at surfing extea. The hostel was really well situated (2 steps from the beach!). The staff was really nice and friendly. The hostel was clean and cosy. The reality matches the pictures on the website. The hostel is pretty small (3 rooms) so it makes it easy to know More

Not really sure where people got their 100% ratings from, but everything about this hostel is bad. 1 shower for 20 people, and only 2 toilets, 1 of them being in the shower so it's always taken. Also the location is not incredible, 20 other hostels/bnbs have better a location. Very very More

Josè was a delightful host, as soon as we arrived he gave us a map and told us a few tips to get around San Sebastián and where to eat. The bathroom was super clean and always clean during our 3 night stay (best shower I've had since my trip). Bedroom was made daily. It does get super More

We really enjoyed our stay in Pension Loinaz! It is in the perfect location right in the middle of the old town and was very clean. The only downsides are that there is no kitchen facilities and there was just one bathroom (shower and toilet in the same room) for the whole floor. I would More

The room was very small and noisy at night time as it's right on the square. This should be advised to clients previous to the booking. Other than that it was a good experience. More

A clean, welcoming place, very professionally run. There's only one shared space, and it was dominated by the party-people a lot of the time. Some rooms are directly off this space, if you don't feel like a party Downtown River might not be for you. More

Cleanliness was not at its best in the washrooms, and the comfort was relatively poor, only one simple bed in one simple room with shadowers that don't close, no breakfast. Not worth 23€ a night. More

The staff were little to no help. The rooms were dirty. I witnessed a cleaner not changing sheets on a bed. No kitchen. The room i was in had no lockers. You had to lock the door with the key from the inside. The bathrooms were poor. The wifi was ok. The location was great. More

Was a comfortable room and good value for the money. Only downside was that it was a bit far from the beach. More

The only thing really to know about this hostel is it is at least 45 minute walk from San Sebastian, the train metro comparison is 20 mins away, a car is really essential, if you want to go anywhere, I enjoy walking so was not fussed with this. The hostel is located at the end of a 10 More
