Located in the Gros District and a 10 minute walk from the old town, this hostal style accommodation offers contemporary finishes and a comfortable bed with good linen. Plentiful wardrobe space, free tea and coffee, filtered drinking water and a good shower. Friendly and obliging host. I had a balcony room, which would be a bit tight for a couple... More

I stayed here for a week with my partner as we were attending a friends wedding in San Sebastian. I cannot recommend this place highly enough. It's in a great location - a 5 minute walk from the surf beach, and a 10 minute walk from the old town. But it's not in a busy area as many of our... More

Stayed in Room 101 in this fantastic pension for three nights. Faultless in all respects. Extremely helpful staff from booking to check out and they speak excellent English. We were provided advice on local restaurants and shopping. We arrived a day early and were assisted with booking nearby Pension Aida. Another superb accommodation place. Pension Ondarra rooms are very modern... More

Arrived at the train station and only a 8 minute walk to the pensione. Excellent location easy walking distance to the old town and places of interest. The room was ultra modern and spacious and very clean. We stayed in room 101 which had a great balcony. The staff were very friendly and helpful. We would highly recommend staying here.

Pro's: Nice front desk staff Room 101 is OK in terms of size and features Con's: The noisiest place I have stayed at in ten years of travelling throughout Europe. I booked Room 101 a year in advance based on TripAdvisor reviews. I booked 3 nights but left at 11:30pm on the first night due to the deafening noise from... More

This is the first time I have stayed at a Pension as we usually stay in hotels. The woman who was at the desk was very kind and helpful. I think her name was Riesa. It was a little difficult to find as the GPS was not correct but it is just three blocks up from the River on the... More

Not the easiest place to find, but when you do, wow, what a fantastic place. Greeted by one of the nicest receptionists, informative, polite and very welcoming. The location is great for both the old town and new. Free tea and coffee and a reduced rate car park must make this one of the best places to stay in San... More
