It is guys like Gus, that make and break a hostel. He truly knows how to give a warm welcome and make you feel at home. The chill area could be a little warmer and bigger. But apart from that, there is really very little that could improve in this place. Very good hostel with good wifi and superb location. Will definately recommend!

The man that checked us in was absolutely welcoming and kind. However, the older lady that was working there was not so nice. She communicated pretty rude when we had a question about anything really. (also a guy late at night he was the security I think, was not amused because I had a cold and it bothered him). But to be honest we didn't really mind. 10am check out, basicly means get off our property! Hostel itself could use some renovations, but it has character Good things: Pudding, Hot tub!

Wifi is very good, facilities are awesome, staff is very good. Great thing about this place is that the communal area is a different building so you can have drink or not be bothered when others are loud and you are trying to get some rest. Wish it was slighly cheaper, I would definately consider staying longer if that was the case.

Happy to hear the wifi was good and that the facilities met your standards :-) thanks for the review and safe travels!

Very nice hostel. Incredible internet speed. But beware, I am allergic to cats, and there is a cat in the house. He doesn't come into the rooms, so no worries there. It is the perfect place to sort stuff out and get into the NZ vibe. Staff is amazing.

It said taxes were included in the price on my booking form. But for some reason they made up a new tax and called it local tax. I felt like the lady was not honest. The fire pit was nice, but apart from that I would not recommend going to this place. Not the cleanest, not the friendliest, and definately could use a better atmosphere.

Don't try to book any kind of tickets at a travel agency, if the staff knows about this they will be very rude to you. Blankets where dirty and smelly, they were obviously not washed. It is a cheap place, but really do not expect much of it. They charge you for the weirdest things and can be very hostile.

Nice place to meet people. Fan rooms could use better ventilation and are really humid. Sanitary could be cleaner. Apart from that you can really tell the owners try their best to give everyone an enjoyable stay.

Nice chill area. Matresses are a little bit hard. Apart from that you get a good deal on this hostel. There are more crowded hostels in the area, Thailand wow has a more mellow and toned down atmosphere.

Very well equiped hostel, you can really tell that the owner(s) want the guests the use everything they have (HQ sound system, chromecast, Xbox etc). Overall the hostel is very clean and modern. The staff were not as kind/interested as other hostels I have been in, and the atmosphere was lacking (probably due to the king) That being said, I (thought) I lost my wallet and the kind girls at the reception made no hesitation to immediatly check the CCTV footage for me! (I found it in the end).

Great place to relax after a long flight. Location is perfect. It is clean and well maintained, the staff are wonderfull. Only downside is that is misses some atmosphere, but for our purposes it was pefect for some relaxation and easy introduction into Bangkok.

The young staff was very friendly and really made our stay great. A big disappointment however was that we where not allowed to chill in the common area at night. Also the kitchen opens at 15:00, preparing an early lunch is not possible. Overall it was pretty good, I just wish they would do something about the atmosphere. Would recommend for the price though.

Great times in San Sebastian and Gaston was an awsome guy the entire time! I Highly recommend Surf backpackers, it is my second time being here and their hostel in Bilbao is even better. We just couldn't go away and kept on extending our stay

Nice Hostel, it is made to house loads of people and that is what you will get. Only big downside was that the window would not open. So sitting in a room with 8 guys was not the most pleasant experience. However, the hostel is as good as sound proof and the chill area is great. Nice indoor garden as well and the breakfast was pretty allright.

Security and locatian was good, but our stay was horrible! Weird atmosphere, feels like a spooky mental institution. Staff provided us with wrong information (breakfast was till 9 but he told us it was 0930) so we could not eat, while we did pay for it. We found a cocroach in the hallway, no toiletseats in the bathrooms. We booked a double bed but got 2 singles. The shower was not cleaned for weeks!! the dirt and fungus was everywhere. And the rooms had bad ventilation.. luckily stayed one night

Very chilled out hostel, in a great part of san sebastian. Staff was super friendly, we booked 2 extra nights. Atmosphere couldn't be better and got to meet a lot of cool poeple! Dani gave me some free surfing tips and they changed our sheets 3 times in 5 days! It is a little overpriced (wash and dry: 12 euro's), 40 euro's for a night on saturday booked directly through the hosteldesk... Also they made us switch rooms a few times, but it was so we could stay together.

Very clean and modern hostel! I loved my stay here with my girlfriend, the staff was super friendly and provided us a private room for the same price as a service. The owner works during the day and was the most polite and social guy I have ever met in a hostel. He gave us a lot of info and good tips on places to visit and where to party. I would definately recommend this hostel to anyone, the only thing I didn't like: The atmosphere, very few people chilling in the common area...
