Great hostel, exactly what I wanted for San Sebastian. The rooms, bathrooms, and kitchen were all clean, and everyone was really welcoming from the second I got there. Towels are free. My phone didn't pick up the wifi that well in my particular bedroom, but it was good in the common areas and the kitchen. There was a fun sangria... More

The hostel was a bit tricky to find but easier if there are other backpackers to follow. As another group arrived at the same time as us, we didn't get much of a introduction to the place, which we later found out included a tip to use the showers in the other flat as the ones in ours were often...

Had the best time staying here over Christmas. The owners of this hostel are lovely people and very helpful. The hostel is an apartment so very nice and cosy. There is a kitchen with everything you need and it's located just 2 minutes from the beach. The hostel is small which is great for meeting other travelers. Can't wait to... More

I didn't stay very long but I felt a really good vibe at this place, the owners/staff were friendly but not always in your face. The location is great (2 blacks from the beach), and San Sebastian is a wonderful destination . I would recommend Olga's as a hostel to anyone who just wants to hang out and explore the... More

I booked for a night at the end of September and I ended up staying 4 nights. The vibe in this hostel is excellent. It has a laid back atmosphere while still being clean and professionally run. Mixing with the other travelers is easy and happens naturally here. Most everyone who stays here has an open mind and attitude, so... More

Good location, within a minute's walk to the surf beach and a comfortable distance to the other main beach. Clean rooms and bathrooms. Super friendly hosts, wife and husband Olga and Raffa. Every other night they let u know about paella Raffa is making fresh or a pinxtos or pub crawl. At €30 (no breakfast) a night, it's at the... More

Great location. Near Donostia's/San Sebastian city center, 1-2 minutes to the beach (the smaller one, not the emblematic bay). Quiet zone but with everything you might need. Chinese shops, beach, surf schools, supermarket, convenience stores, etc. When we arrived we were received by the owner that put us on pair with things. As it seems, there was a problem with... More

A really friendly place, quite different from any hostel i have stayed in. On the Saturday night everyone pitched in 5 euro and we had sangria and dinner made for us while we talked in the kitchen. There was about 15 people there from the hostel, all eating and drinking together and then we went out together too. Olga and... More

Located only minutes from the surf beach this hostel is more like a home than a hostel. The owners are really friendly and the rooms are cosy, with comfy beds and pillows. The bathroom was always clean. The kitchen has everything you need to prepare your own meal and some days the family even cooked for me. Loved my stay... More

Very nice little hostel, very homely environment with friendly owners. Wasn't what we expected, I have never stayed at a place like it! Great location, a little hard to find, but a very cosy and nice place to stay!
