This isn't really a hotel - more a university halls of residence with rooms you can rent. So - although I didn't encounter any noise at all - beware of that. It's not particularly well-located, being about 30 mins walk from the centre of San Sebastian, and about 5-10 mins walk from the beach. However, for the price it's perfect... More

We stayed two nights here. The rooms and facilities were clean, and the room was much better than any of the college dorm rooms I have seen in the US. The beds were not too comfortable (dorm beds) and there is no air conditioner, therefore some noise from the outside can disturb you (but we sleep with ear plugs now... More

A college dorm so basic, no frills accommodation but was clean, comfortable with hot water in the shower and plenty of storage space. No air-con though which was ok when we were there but if it were any hotter (30deg +) it would start getting uncomfortable. If you are just looking for somewhere to shower and sleep during a short...

This accommodation is hard to find, especially when it's raining and dark - if you are using a GPS, ensure its database is up to date. Ours wasn't and we ended up lost on a very high, and very narrow, scary mountain road. My wife's hair turned a very premature shade of white! When we eventually found the place -... More

My husband and I stayed for 1 night. When we arrived the first thing we noticed was the sculptures outside which made the building look inviting and fun. We stayed in a twin room which was basic yet large in space with high ceilings and windows to catch the breeze.It is very new, modern and very nice. Dinner was buffet... More

This is a University Hall of Residence which lets rooms to travellers during summer. Everything looked brand new, squeaky clean but with plain, almost spartan rooms. Location : 4km to the west of the city centre, just off the Avenida Tolosa in the modern suburb of Berri and within the University Campus. Reception : Efficient, multi-lingual staff are present at...

I was traveling solo and the room here worked just fine for me. It is a college dorm, but it is very quiet, and it was perfect for me primarily because I was in the middle of a 2.5 week trip and needed to do some laundry and they do have laundry facilities. The also have internet, which is nice.... More
