You probably can't get a better location in San Sebastian - this hotel is smack bang in the heart of the old town, so you'll never be far from the food and drink scene. I stayed in the guesthouse style accommodation that is the next street over from its dormitory accommodation. It was very clean and comfortable - the only... More

Bed room was clean and ok but very noisy On a night from outside! One of the 2 shutters was broken so couldn't get much privacy from others apartments or the sun light in the morning, Wifi average in the room! Didn't get a chance to use kitchen so unsure of what it is like. Beds very comfy and Pillow... More

We stayed in late May so it was still quiet then a we payed about 10 euros each for a private dorm for the 3 of us. The location is great. The staff were really lovely. The reception/kitchen/seating area is tiny. We managed fine but I could imagine it would get difficult in peak season. Overall we had a very... More

We were a group of 4 staying at pension goiko for 2 nights. Website said check in was at 12 but when we got there they said maybe come back at 1.30/2. We left our bags and went to the beach so it wasn't a problem. Room was nice, 4 single beds, nice and clean, good pillows. 2 bathrooms close... More

The only thing this hostel had going for it was it's good location. It's in the old town of San Sebastian. We stayed in a private 3 bedroom dorm and had a lot of issues: 1. Wifi doesn't seem to work anywhere in the hostel apart from reception. 2. Staff were quite rude and dismissive. 3. I'm not one to... More

My partner and I stayed here for one night (thank god) and i have to say it was a sad excuse for a hostel. Our room was facing the road which meant we had a door to let some breeze in...without this it would have been a sauna. The rooms are quite small and there is barely room to open... More

The only good thing about this placer was the helpful staff. Other than that, what people have complained in other comments is true. Mattresses are so old you do feel the sprigs when you lay down. They don't have bedsheets, and the mattress cover is very old and feels dirty. For a room with seven beds, there was only one... More

We stayed in the four bedroom (no 9) with two bunk beds. The mattresses must be 20 years old and so worn that you could feel all the metal springs. The room was the floor over a bar = smokey and noisy. The price was 120 Euro a night, and we concluded it would be better to stay in a... More

I enjoyed my stay at Pension Goiko so much that I ended up extending it. The staff are really amazing and friendly- especially Steffi who seems to be the manager. She had a lot of really great information about the area and was always willing to do whatever to help make the stay better. I've seen some people complain about... More

Stayed in a 7 bed dorm, this hostel is just ok...not as great as I thought it would be. I guess it just didn't suit me the best. The kitchen is only open at 9:30am which I think is very late. There is no breakfast either. There is only one shared bathroom on the first floor, shower and toilet in... More
