    I have stayed 2 times already at this place and I find it to be one of the most incredible hostels I've stayed ever! It has a perfect location at a quiet neighborhood next to the surfing beach, really short walking distance to bus stops, center, great food, awesome bars, hikes, and sightseeing. Book it, get there by public transport, and you'll have one of the best experiences in the Basque Country! The staff are always amazing and make sure you have a great stay in town.

    One of, if not cleanest, hostel i’ve experienced. Super friendly staff and guests with really nice big bedrooms and lockers. Vibe of the hostel was really good, and location was super!

    Great location and very chill atmosphere. Don't drink coffee but having a coffee/bar in the common area was a nice way to connect with other visitors. Staff was friendly - really appreciate Ramone and Mar for sharing their stories and insights! Will definitely stay here again next time I'm in San Sebastian.

    The stay was quite comfortable and the location is also great. The hostel is very clean and the staff is really helpful. Met very good people in the hostel. However, there is no cooking facility in the kitchen. The hostel is surely recommended for 2-3 days stay. There was personal terrace to the room, which was really good.

    Pros: -beautiful aesthetically pleasing hostel -facilities were SO nice and clean. The bed was the most comfortable hostel bed I have ever slept in -quiet -staff were quiet at first but very kind once you got to know them -amazing location near the beach -flexibility with checkout Cons: -only 4 people were staying there, really difficult to meet people. Makes sense since it is low season

    The only reason my rating was a marked down a little are because of the lack of washing machine & kitchen appliances. This is clearly advertised of course but a cooker/hob would be really beneficial. Over all though an amazing hostel in a brilliant location. It has a bar with helpful staff always around. Someone is always there to help you with something which is brilliant. Less than 5 minutes from the surf and in a great location for socialising as well. Would definitely stay here again.

    Amazing location near the beach, beautiful rooms with comfortable beds and clean bathrooms. Kitchen is small but there so many restaurants around it wasn’t an issue. Only downside was that the staff are laid-back to the point of being a bit rude/unhelpful, and the bar is too expensive, but it was a good stay.

    Very Good

    Very squeaky bunk beds in 4 bed mixed dorm but very nice room terrace. Male and female shared bathrooms and toilets a little bit unusual and not ideal. As a surfing hostel It is quite dirty as there is sand everywhere. No social activities if travelling solo. But overall a very nice hostel and most staff very friendly.

    Service wasn’t good, the staff are barely about and when they are they are off chatting with friends or sleeping on the couch. I booked a room of 8, an additional pull out bed placed in the room so there was little room (seemed to be - friend of the staff) and the house keeper came in and out of the room throughout the day as the laundry cupboard was accessed through the room. The building itself; the doors are heavy, sound travels you can hear everything, no aircon, & common area is tiny
