The hostel is in a very good location, and the staff was very nice. I arrived later than my check in, because of my transport, but they waited for me, after calling them. Only negative points are that I couldn't pay by card, and the hostel has no common space, except a little kitchen. If it's not a problem for you, than I can fully recommend it. :)

Great staff. Clean and simple bathroom, shower, and kitchen. Biggest perk is that it’s located in center of town and it’s an easy walk to the main beaches and old town. Bunk beds seemed a bit dirty — my bed sheets had small stains, lint, and almost felt like they weren’t cleaned (or thoroughly cleaned). Walls in bedrooms were a bit dirty too. Also, there is no lounge area or living room to sit and relax. Overall, very simple hostel for sleeping.

Downtown river hostel is in a great location within walking distance to the train station and much of the amazing things to do in San Sebastián. The staff is helpful and attentive and the prices are hard to beat. There are unfortunately some issues of cleanliness as the beds had crumbs and such on them at checkin and the showers could have used some deep cleaning as well. Security was also an issue as some of the lockers in the room would not lock and there was no attempt made to fix that.
