Pros: - Very central location - Seconds from coffee shops, bars & restaurants - Comfy beds & recent refurbishment - One of the cheapest options in expensive San Seb - Decent sized room & no bunk beds Cons: - Lack of proper staff/ management - No towels available for first two days (pretty unacceptable, actually) - Noisy - Poor 'kitchen'...

Backpacker accommodation at its finest. Dirty sheets - tick, Filthy bathrooms - tick. Not enough - bathrooms, tick Noisy rooms, tick. Road noise, tick. Pros : location, right on the heart of town, easy walk to both main beaches and a 15 minute walk from the train station. Nice, friendly and informed staff Cons : Lack of common areas, below... More

Our sheets were stained and smelt awful. The bathroom was a disgrace: blocked shower with filthy sand. Looked as if nothing had been cleaned in years. Absolutely nothing: toilet roll, soap. Better to sleep outdoors in a cardboard box than in that dump.

Showers are a dribble, street noise makes for zero sleep plus the windows don't shut properly, clock tower goes off every half hour all night, literally no atmosphere whatsoever so it makes it near impossible to meet new people. The springs in the bed stick right into your back and aren't comfy in the slightest. Apart from that, the check... More

My husband and I were traveling around Europe and didn't mind staying in hostels to cut the overall costs. However we both were a bit disappointed as to what we got in this situation! When we checked into where we thought we were staying, we were told we had been moved. We left the lovely Gipuzkoa Square and headed more... More

This is a terrible terrible hostel. I will start with the toilets. They are filthy and the showers do not even have a door. Water goes everywhere while showering. We also didn't have one hot shower in four days. It was always freezing. The rooms are like prison cells. They are dark, the bed sheets are both stale and stink... More

This is a backpacker's hostel in every sense of the word. It is cheap. It has a good location. Besides that I did not have a pleasant stay. There were not enough bathrooms for the amount of people staying. The bedrooms, bathrooms, shared rooms and kitchen were never in a clean condition. Do not expect to get any type of... More

The staff were non-existent. On arrival in the apartment the staff did not even introduce themselves - I figured out that they were staff when I saw them cleaning a day later! Room was very noisy and light came in from other rooms. There were also too many people staying for the number of toilets and bathrooms (1 bathroom between... More
