Keep them posted in our handy computer area.

The Old Town is 10 minutes away, where you'll find all the best bars and clubs. Flying into San Sebastián airport? Jump in a taxi or pick up the 28 bus and switch to the E40 to get to us in 45 minutes. We've got different check-in areas, so just remember to confirm whether you need to head to Calle Manterola 15 or Calle Easo 20 once you arrive.

    This was a great hostel to stay at. They have common room and guest kitchen, some decent free items for guests too. Everyone who worked there was really nice. The beds were really comfy, had a light and electrical plug, even a usb that actually worked.

    I loved this hostel! the room I stayed in was very clean with a large bathroom. The key cards are bracelets which is really handy and it's very close to the beach. Privacy curtains on the beds make all the difference!

    Loved it!!! I loved San Sebastian and this hostel. I would definitely come back in a post-corona time. The hostel has an amazing vibe, a terrace and an open air restaurant. It wasn't full because of covid but I'm sure that in a normal time it would be a super fun hostel to meet other travelers. The staff were incredibly nice. The rooms and the bathrooms are super clean. The location is amazing! 2 blocks from the Concha beach. It's like 15-20 minutes walking to the surfing beach.

    Las habitaciones son geniales! Las camas bien equipadas y las cortinas te dan privacidad. Lo único que no pude utilizar la cocina pero por el covid.. el stand muy amigable también 🙂

    Awesome hostel, amazing roof top. Staff are very friendly and approachable, I met the best people here. Only downside is that the bar is always full of people who are not staying at the hostel, so there are never any seats. I think an area should be reserved for people from the hostel, as it’s a nice spot to meet people.
