Best of all, it's strategically located to achieve the following objectives, which helps us to reserve budgets for other purposes.

1). From or to Bus station, take the city bus as suggested, as city bus has a lot of spaces to take luggages. If bus is not available, cab is charging reasonable price, or just walk following the map. It will take about 30-35 min.
2). For the best tapas one may get from Spain, find them on the Aldámar, a 3-5min walk.
3). Easy-to-organize sight seeing tour, from San Vincente church, San Telmo museum, Constitution square, ... Playa de la Concha, ... then back thru the Centro. It was a good 3 hours and did not exhaust us at all, and we may save our energy for the next destination.

Room may be a little packed for two people. Wifi is not on when we stayed.

I stayed at this hostel for three nights with four other friends. We paid 17 euros a night each and were overjoyed with how excellent our stay was. The woman in charge made our beds every day and the bathrooms were very clean, with hot showers. It was very safe and located right in the center of San Sebastian. It's definitely the best hostel I've stayed in so far.

I returned to Pensione Larrea in San Sebastian with my wife in May 2008 when we were traveling southern Europe. I had stayed there with a couple of buddies back in June 2003 when we were backpacking Europe for a month after graduating college.

Pensione Larrea was just as memorable this last time around as it was back then because of the welcoming, genuine, and warm hospitality of "Mama," the owner and caretaker of the pensione. We brought her pictures from 2003 and she remembered me. She even gave me and my wife snacks every day. Sweet! Although we can speak some Spanish and she pretty much only speaks Spanish, she still makes every effort to try to understand and accomodate us and other guests.

The pensione was impeccably clean and it is centrally located in the "Parte Vieja" central part of San Sebastian, between the two major beaches. There are markets, restaurants, and bars all over so no problem with getting groceries, tapas, and wine. Also, the central square is a block away and sometimes they have Basque cultural shows with music and kids dancing, which is a lot of fun. Mama gives lots of tips on what to do and where to get around. The only reason that I wouldn't give Pensione Larrea 5 stars is because the walls are thin and we could hear people having sex in the next room every night. Otherwise, I'd definitely stay in this pensione again!
