    A very fun environment. I arrived late in the evening due to bus arrival time, but the staff were just as happy to see me, as they would be earlier in the day. I wasn’t treated like an inconvenience. The facilities and beds we great. There was a gorgeous bar in a sunny outdoor area to drink, eat and relax. Conveniently located and would 100% stay here again (and I did a couple of days later!)

    We loved this hostel. It’s 5 minutes from the beach and 15 from old town. It was a little hard to find because google maps wasn’t accurate, but once we found it we were very pleased. They did also push back our check in time by 30 minutes when we got there, but they had luggage storage so it wasn’t a huge deal. The bathroom facilities were great as well and they have huge lockers in the rooms. I would stay again!

    Great location, the common room could be better furnished but otherwise great place to stay. A perk is that one gets a bracelet for a key card.

    The hostel is a bit pricey for what you get, but I assume that’s because it’s in San Sebastián, a big tourist area and party town. The security curtains on the bed and the wrist bracelet that acts as a key were very cool. But this is the only hostel I stayed at that didn’t have a full kitchen - there was no range or hot plate to cook food, and no pots and pans. I wouldn’t recommend it if you’re traveling on a budget.

    Room: - there were holes in my linen - pretty warm/hot - in one of the rooms i stayed in my locker didnt work + i like the curtain for privacy + wall outlet and usb connection Shower rooms: - 50 % of the time not warm/hot - could be a bit more clean + enough showers and toilets Kitchen: - no real cooking facilities. You have to use the microwave to warm up/cook + enough space It's a big hostel and many communal areas. Maybe actually too many. Great location! Great staff!

    Not what I expected when I booked this hostel. Got a single bed without a curtain, no locker under bed to keep my backpack and stuff in (only a very small one for valuables). Trash can was not emptied for (at least) three days, sand from previous guests on the floor was not removed. The reception in this part of the hostel was only open for a couple of hours, if you needed anything you had to go all the way to «the main hostel». Very tood location tho.

    It's like a hotel, but your sharing your room with 5 other people who also are confused as to why the place is so sh!t. Kitchen is very basic, staff seemed unhappy and unhappy to see you, no events or ways to meet others. Locations good, and beds are king singles for the tall people out there. Still wouldn't recommend it.
