Stayed two nights here. Excellent location right in the heart of the old town. Little pricy for a hostel compared to other cities though. We had a twin room, very clean and towels provided but no air-con and it was quite noisy at night as just above bars, restaurants etc. Good sized kitchen which was well stocked with everything for...

I've never stayed in a hostel before and the Kaixo is in an excellent location to enjoy the old part and the tapas experience!! It's part of a bar/restaurant which liked great and a cocktail bar which wasn't so good. But because of the location it was super noisy. We were very happy with our room at the front of... More

Great location for a weekend in San Sebastián. Bathroom showers were an issue though as both were broken so hopefully they fix them soon. No reception desk but they meet and use the cafe next door as the base. Otherwise would stay here again as the location in amongst the old town is fantastic!

What a fantastic hostel. Clean, cosy with cute little rooms (we were lucky and got the double at the front overlooking the main street) everything is so well maintained, shared kitchen facilities if you want it (but pintxos are so cheap and minutes away) You even get a 10% discount in the lovely cafe downstairs - it is one of...

Very nice hostel in the heart of the the parte vieja in San Sebastian. 5 minutes walk to La Concha beach, literally 100 meters away from Fermin Calbeton, which is the main touristic street. Excellent location! Keep in mind it's in a pedestrian area, so the taxi drops you off 500mts away from the entrance, but it's definitely not a... More

I spent two nights in this hostel, in a 4-bed dorm room. The room was comfortable and cozy, although it was located right next to the street the noise was tolerable. It would also be helpful if the hostel will indicate on its website that the 4-bed room is a mixed gender dorm, this was not indicated on Booking.com when... More

Fabulous little hostel which is set in the perfect location, easy access to pintox and surrounding restaurants. Dorm rooms were comfortable and included plenty of circulation space and readily available lockers. Combined shower/ toilet area, which can cause a bit of a wait in the mornings. Hostel has a washing machine, and clothes line availiable.

I spent about two weeks in this hostel as I stayed in San Sebastian with a friend. The hostel itself is clean, the kitchen, the bathrooms, floor, etc. Also the rooms are clean. They are quite small and only accommodate (in our case) two beds and safes on the wall, and that's it. Around are all the bars and restaurants... More

Everyone has pointed out the excellent location of the Hostel, and I'll add to that. It is a brilliant location, right in the heart of the old city. My partner was a bit hesitant about a hostel and shared bathrooms but that worked out pretty okay at the end of the day. We had Bedroom 1, with a small balcony,... More

Right smack in the middle of San Sebastian's historical centre. The rooms are pretty barren, just the beds, nothing else; although some of the other ones seemed to have a bit more furniture. It would be nice to have a little table at least. The kitchen is well equipped and everything is very clean. The staff downstairs is also extremely... More
