Don't have anything to do with this place. They are thieves. I booked accidentally online and didn't realize that they take a deposit. I had to cancel my entire trip a month before it was scheduled for work-related reasons. I cancelled all the other hotels (there were about 5) with NO problems -- only this one had taken an advance... More

My experience here could not have been worse. The woman running the place was terribly rude and inconsiderate. The bed (promised to be a double) was a single and very uncomfortable. We ended up going across the street the second night to another place called Hostal Bahia which was much much better. I highly recommend that one instead.

Pension bikain is in a good location. About 100 meters from the beach and a 5 minute walk to the old town. However with price we paid it was nothing special. When we arrived our room had stains on the sheets which was a bit disgusting. The lady at the reception speak little English and is very hard to communicate... More

There is too many bad things to say about this pension. I stayed in mid July 2012, and would advise anyone not to stay there. The room couldn't have been smaller, as well as the bathroom. The women running the place started off being very nice, but any contact there after was she was rude and very unhelpful. It is... More

Looked at every accommodation in San Sebastian before booking this pension so was based on price and location. Quite pricey for what is offered but there is nothing cheap in san Sebastian so..... The location is good,just nicely placed between beach and river and everything well within walking distance. Room and bathroom cleaned every day (we stayed 4 nights) but... More

Came back from what was supposed to be a city break in San Sebastian and have to say that staying in this pension was the worst mistake we could have made. Room was tiny with no windows, the owner, Teresa, was not considerate of the guest's privacy, no breakfast included and a very expensive price tag for what it offered.... More

I agree with the previous review. There are only 5 rooms in the pension and although they are clean and well maintained - they are also tiny. We may have just got the worst room. But even if you were in a bigger room the pension is above a busy Italian Restaurant so it's extremely noisy at night. Also whoever... More

After reading caduggan's review 4 star facilities near the beach at a moderate price I eagerly anticipated a stay at Pension Bikain. The best I can say about the place is it's clean & near the beach. It's at the top end of moderate our room was little more than a converted cupboard & it was noisy despite the double... More
