Very close to the main beach on San Sebastian, right in the middle of Old Town. One complaint was there was no air conditioning so we had to keep the window open at night and the streets below were very loud for the entire night (not the hostels fault for the noise) Also quite a few stairs More

Really social hostel with things going on each night, great way to meet other travellers and get involved in the San Seb culture. Adequate facilities and cleaned regularly, wifi a little unreliable in some areas. Great location 2 mins to surf beach, 10mins to old town and 2 mins to More

The best part of the hostel was its location. However, the comforters had stains and the hallways/common area smelled strongly of cat. More

really great location and price comparative to other rooms in the city. will say though that prices advertised on hostal's own website are lower than through hostelworld so you might wish to book directly. my other little quibble is that we twice struggled to gain entrance whilst More

Overpriced, rude immature staff, smells bad and too far away. Probably the worst hostel in Europe so far. Sorry guys but no recommendation here. More

The hostel was clean and the staff was extremely friendly, but this hostel is really out of the way. Forget going out at night (unless you want to get an expensive taxi), It is a steep uphill and then downhill walk to get to the bus stop. It's about a 15-20 minute walk, the bus comes every More

I didn't mind staying at green nest, it is reasonably far out of the main town but the walk in is really beauitiful or there's a few busses if you don't want to walk. This hostel is HUGE and empty.. I was staying in a 6 bed dorm and there was 1 other person in my room. This was in the peak More

A bit out of the way, but very clean and secure. The walk to the old town is actually quite pleasant if you stroll along the beach (probably 45 mins). More

It is located in one of the best areas of Madrid, you have the city centre very close but you also are near Malasaña and Chueca. The staff is really friendly, and though they could use some air conditioning in the rooms, the facilities are great and clean. More

Great location, nice room, very basic hostel but I stayed for 6 nights and enjoyed it. Don't forget your earplugs as the streets outside can be noisy in the middle of the night with people walking home along them and stopping to chat for ages right outside! Had a great time in San More

Room looked nothing like the photos advertised, place is really rundown. Tried 2 showers in the morning, niether had hot water. Apparently only certain showers do. For fellow Kiwi's the place was about as nice as your average student flat. Way overpriced! More

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. More

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, More
