“A really messy hostel”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

When we arrive they received us in the kitchen with a lot dirty clothes on the table. There was no reception desk at all. Actually, it was impossible to figure it out who were the people working there. They don't use credit cards not even debit cards. The towels they rent had an awful smell. And it was really expensive for such a dreadful place and impossible to sleep because of the noise. At least the room was clean.

Hello !
This place is well situated, right in the center of San Sebastian but it's the only good stuff about it.
Otherwise it's very noisy (inside and outside) and very much unorganised. And please check your account ! I was charged without notice what I had already paid.
Anyway, have a nice trip in San Sebastian !

I might be bias because we LOVED San Sebastian. But this place was great! Location perfect. People who work there were lovely. Very chill but could have been a little more clean. Definitely stay here!

Great location in the Old Town but the service is non existant!!! They purposely over book the rooms and then refer you to their other hostel in which you have to pay more. Bathrooms are dirty and you have to supply your own toilet paper because they rarely clean/restock the bathrooms. The kitchen, reception, laundry & common room is all 1 room there is no where you can just chill out unless you decide to lock yourself in your room. I had to sleep on a camping bed with extremely thin matress. I won't be coming back.

The place is nice and clean, great location. If your room is anywhere near the street you will be exposed to loud noise from foot traffic and garbage trucks during the night. There isn't any other services like a common room. But for the price and location you can't really expect anything more.

Room Tip: Try and get one away from the street.

The best thing about Goiko is the location right in the heart of the old town. The room itself was basic but comfortable with a very basic breakfast included downstairs in the hostel section. Overall it was a comfortable stay for budget travellers

After waiting for almost 45 mins on the street waiting to be let into the hostel reception had to end up phoning so we could be let in. We were then informed that we would not be staying at Pension Goiko in the old town (as we had booked) but we were to be staying in another building owned by the same management about 10 minutes away. It ended up being a room downstairs of an old Spanish lady's house (this lady was very lovely). However, we had no kitchen facilities and no internet for two days which was unacceptable. The room was fine and we did have our own ensuite in another room, however it felt like we were being intrusive and couldnt make any noise and we got in trouble when we had a friend come over for a few moments before we went down to the beach.
