Great location, 10 min walking to the centre. Clean, private bathroom, daily change of towels and sheets, perfect internet. Muchas gracias al dueno!!25 euro for a quadruple room. Only shampoo misses. I suggest this place. There are rooms like hostels too

Such a lovely welcome, I understand a little Spanish so understood Miguel well enough, but his warmth would have compensated had I not. Clean bedrooms and bathrooms, with a cosy atmosphere. Excellent location; only one minute from the beautiful beach and five minutes from the old part of the city. Will certainly return, hopefully soon! :D

I loved this place. Clean, close to the beach and was immediately made to feel welcome by Miguel, Fran and baby Alex. They truly went out of their way to help with suggestions on where to go, what to do and even helped plan the rest of my trip and researched the cheapest and best options for travel through Spain...

I very much enjoyed staying here. Miguel is so warm and inviting but doesn´t speak any english - its a bit of a comedy skit haha.. fresh towels and sheets every day and everything is cleaned thoroughly by maids. There is no wifi in the dorms and no breakfast. Other than that, the lockers for your valuables and the opportunity... More

We had a really great stay - Miguel is a great host! It's a very homely hostel and we would definitely choose Pension Amalur again when we come back to San Sebastian. We were offered discounted, secure parking as well which was very convenient. It is very close to the beach and a 10 minute walk from some really nice... More

The only thing that I thought was unacceptable about this place was the bed (double bed in a private room). It was small and really hard (you could feel the springs underneath you) which meant that we slept really badly and were tired the whole time. I didn't mind that the room was small and basic, because it is a... More

The place was really great all around. 1 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to the old town. It was very clean and had a nice common area, and the wifi worked well everywhere. The owner is very friendly and helpful although his english isn't great. Only other issue is there is only a microwave to cook not... More

We stayed here in June in a 6 bed dorm for 2 nights. This hostel is easy to find with given directions, in the heart of San Sebastián, 5 minute walk to beach and 5-10 into the old town. Miguel was a great host, spoken little English but it all seemed to make sense! Great tips on where sites are... More

Pension Amalur is in the heart of San Se, 5 minutes from the beach, the main street, Urbieta, and 5-7 minutes from the Old Part (Parte Vieja). The owner, Miguel, is very friendly and helpful, and ensures everyone feels relaxed in his home. The bedrooms and bathrooms are cleaned everyday, with fresh sheets and towels. There is free internet access... More

I booked in for two nights with Miguel and was positively surprised of everything! I stayed in a 6 bed dorm and met really nice international people straight away. We were hanging out together and had loads of fun. Miguel was great, giving you a tour through the pension and loads of information on Sanse. He was always there to... More
