    4 of us stayed here for 6 nights in a four bed room, very clean and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. We would recommend anyone traveling to San Sebastián to check this place out. Very close to beach, bars and restaurants and great vibe here

    Absolutely LOVE this hostel ! best vibe and atmosphere, super chill and easy to get around. surfing everyday and meeting the best people was the highlight. Although the common room is not massive you’re still guaranteed for a good social time as well as a quiet, comfortable nights sleep. 10/10 would recommend and stay again

    I had an amazing stay here for 5 nights, wish I could have stayed longer! The staff were all great, super friendly and approachable. They booked a surf lesson for me with the local surf school, gave me recommendations for what to do nearby and were always there on reception, happy to help with anything which was perfect as a solo traveller. The only improvement I could think of is perhaps in future some social events could be arranged by the hostel.

    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.

    Great spot for San Sebastian. A little pricy but guess it's worth it with what you get. Nice bar and quite easy to meet people. Great location. Comfy beds and very clean. Well recommended.

    This is a really great hostel! It’s in the perfect spot and easy to walk into the old city. The staff are very nice too. When I sprained my ankle, they went out of their way to give me ice and make sure everything was okay. This place was in a great location with lots of food nearby and right by the surfing bay! It didn’t have a proper kitchen, but there was a microwave, sink, and kettle for all your daily needs. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this place to any wayward traveller.

    The location is amazing! Two blocks from a beautiful beach and a short walk to the city center full of shops and restaurants. The front desk receptionists were very helpful. They helped us figure out transportation and told us the best things to do in town. The WiFi doesn’t always work in the rooms and there’s no air conditioning. There’s a nice ocean breeze if you leave the doors open. Best value for your money. I would definitely stay here again.

    This was a great hostel in terms of room and bed size (even had a little terrace). The bathrooms were great and the common areas were clean and pretty. My only concerns was that there was only a lift that was made clear to the customers. The staff did say there were stairs next door but they weren't made clear to us in case of a fire emergency. Also the wifi didn't work in the bedrooms, but was fine downstairs. Minor things - overall a great hostel to stay in !

    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
