    A pleasant and easy, no fuss hostel. Quite far out on foot, but in a nice area and super easy to access by quick bus journey, with bus stop twenty seconds from hostel- fab for me as solo traveller. Curtains at the head part of bunk beds, freshly ground coffee and communal shower gels/shampoos etc were a lovely touch. Staff lovely too. Kitchen always accessible. Muchas gracias chicos!

    Even if it was a little bit far away from the center of the town, the hostel was pretty nice. The guys informed me very well about the place and were kind. The only thing that they could see is the issue of the cleanessens, nevertheless I was completely with the choice of the hostel.

    Overall, this is a great hostel for a group or solo who don't mind bussing to the main town, and who don't mind a slightly dirty hostel with minimal privacy. Our door was left open all night to the front desk, there were constantly bugs everywhere (along with dead bug squashed on the walls) - resulting in multiple bug bites, and the kitchen/common area were attached to the front desk/entrance. Other than that, the staff are very friendly and the location is close to bus stations = easy transit

    Staff were great and the facilities are decent, Bed Bugs were not good though, left riddled with bites the next morning. Not a fan at all, won't have fond memories.

    Interesting hostel. We loved San Sebastián but we did not feel very comfortable at the hostel. Room didn’t have a lock on it and lockers were not deep enough to fit bags in it. Overall hostel felt unclean especially the beds and the bathrooms. I was bitten by a number of bugs in the hostel. Rooms were also very hot and there was no air flow. One of the staff members was a bit too friendly which made us feel a bit uneasy. Overall disappointed in our stay especially for the price paid.

    I have stayed in many hostels around Europe but this one definitely had one of the worst value-for-money ratios that I have seen. The premises (bathroom and kitchen) were visibly dirty. The fans were full of accumulated dust, the kitchen was a mess, the armchairs and cushions in the chill area were damaged and dirty. One of the staff guys wanted a kiss on his cheek in return for doing our check-out. Above all, we woke up with bites from bed bugs. Definitely not worth spending 30 eur per night.

    Both my friend and I got eaten alive by bed bugs!! This totally ruined our last 2 days in San Sebastián as we then had to spend time finding a new hostel and washing all of our clothes. BEWARE! When telling the staff there was no sense of urgency at all. There was someone above me on the top bunk of the same bed and he had his stuff all over his bed .. instead of telling him and moving him into another room they just left him (I warned him to be careful in the end)
