    A bit far away from the Old Town, but close enough to take a walk down the beach and be there in about 30 minutes. Great rooms, great staff, and great atmosphere. In the future, they could benefit from having something like shuttle services to help guests get to and from the hostel to places like the bus station or the Old Town.

    Room was extremely small for six people! Bathroom shower spewed into the bathroom area. Staff were exceptionally helpful! Parking availability was non existent.

    Great hostel, but the old town was about a 20 minute walk. It’s also completely automated, I never spoke to a staff member.

    Great location and great price! The space was really just OK. Bathrooms were kind of gross and the free breakfast was really just sliced bread and some basic fruit (it’s something! but nothing great). I would recommend for the price.

    Far enough from the old town and up a hill but I really liked the area it's in. Lots of communal space. Kitchen is only a couple microwaves and a kettle, so not really full self catering. Beds were clean, with built in plug and light, but not long enough for me. And you'll need your own padlock to use the lockers, which is not the case everywhere. All in all though, a perfectly OK place to stay.

    Whilst I made some great friends here, I wouldn’t have been able to do it if I wasn’t naturally extroverted and seeking new friends. There is no reception here, you do all your own check in on a tablet. But tech isn’t foolproof so it means that kitchen staff are being asked to help when it isn’t their job. Further, the kitchen staff are completely overworked doing breakfast and dinner service, reception, security, and hosting duties. Basically to enjoy your time here you’ve got to seek it out!

    Very interesting and unique concept when it comes "virtualizing" the whole hostel experience, but the lack of staff also makes asking questions or getting help a bit of an issue. Bathrooms need much better ventilation though, especially the ones with showers, which also have very, very poor design when it comes to drainage (almost the entire bathroom floor gets wet!). Situated up a steep slope, so backpackers be aware when getting there on foot under the hot sun! Tidy general spaces though.

    While the check in process was easy and straightforward, the stay itself was moderately uncomfortable. The location is about a 45 minute walk from the Old Town, which is the central hub of San Sebastián. Not the end of the world, but something to consider. Staying at the hostel was pleasant enough, but because of Spain’s hot summers and humid climate, it caused the rooms to feel stuffy and hot. There was an AC unit in the room but it appeared to be broken. The bed was quite short as well.

    There wasn’t much of an atmosphere, check in was online and barely had contact with the staff. The toilet didn’t have paper to dry hands and sometimes soap was missing as well. There is kettles and a microwave only and if you need utensils you have to get them at the reception. Location was great tho

    Perfect example of automation making things worse instead of better. No one at the hostel - they rely on the goodwill of the guests (bad idea) when problems arise no one takes responsibility. Felt extremely unsafe as there was no one to hold anyone accountable or even keep people out of the building or rooms. The hostel isn’t cleaned properly as there are miscommunications regarding the reservations. When I had an issue they blamed it on website booking system.
