    Truly an incredible experience! This was my first time in a hostel and it was such a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and knowledgeable on the area. The entire hostel was very clean and well kept. I never once felt unsafe. We met some of the coolest people while we stayed here. The location is perfectly situated right smack in the middle of anything you want to do in San Sebastián. For the price, it is better than anything I could have imagined. I highly recommend!

    I would definitely recommend. This facility uses very high tech room keys and locks for your storage which is by a bracelet. Restrooms are clean. Will be coming back!

    It was a pretty good hostel with comfy beds, clean bathrooms, and a decent location (close to Old Town but I actually preferred staying on the other side of the river away from the chaos). It was unexpectedly anti-social despite its size and many common areas- I think it was too big. Overall it did the job for a few nights!

    Nice location close to La Concha, although a little hidden to initially find. Quiet midweek but fills up approaching weekend. Rooftop bar not open while I was there. Would recommend arriving on Thursday for Pintxos pubcrawl

    Overall not a bad hostel for sleeping and getting around. Nice central location. Lacked any kind of social atmosphere (even though there are a lot of common areas). Kitchen lacks stove or oven to cook anything. Would be nice if they organized an outing or something. A lot of older people (50+) at the hostel.

    Our bedroom was very nice and clean with comfortable beds and towels provided. Really friendly staff and big common areas with lots of couches and computers. There is a big kitchen/dining area with a fridge to store food but apart from a microwave there are no cooking facilities. The bathrooms could have been slightly cleaner and we found the atmosphere to be a bit less social compared to other hostels but overall we really enjoyed our stay.

    Odd room booking on Hostelworld, higher price (+10 euro) did not result in a premium room, same type of room as others, and even worse the actual bed at the higher price was in the middle of the room.
