Liked: Great location in the centre, within walking distance of everywhere. Very friendly atmosphere and cheap.

Disliked: It was very difficult to find because the sign on the wall is so small, we walked past it about 5 times before finding it!

Liked: Location - situated in old town of San Sebastian the real heart of the city

Disliked: Hostel staff partied with their friends until 4am - shouting, slamming doors and ringing via intercom for fun. They drunk so much that the small brakfast included in the price wasn't available - kitchen wasn't open in the morning.

Liked: It is a converted apartment so it has a lovely homely feel with a nice communal area and kitchen. Breakfast included was a nice touch although it is only the basics. Also it was nice and quiet after 11pm

Disliked: The place was small with only 2 bathrooms and I felt at times they were squashing in as many people as the possibly could, with even people sleeping on the sofas, this meant there was a long line for the bathrooms in the morning. There are also no lockers and really it seemed very overpriced for what it was.

Liked: I had a fantastic stay at the hostel! Malena was amazing and was always willing to take everyone out to discover the local bars and pinchos! The surfing hire was really handy too :) The hostel itself was very homely and well maintained with a casual vibe. Thanks for an incredible 3 days in beautiful San Sebastian Surfbackpackers!!

Liked: Basically, this hostel are a few guys who rent arpartements in San Sebastian and rent them out as hostels. This means there are different locations, but as far as I've seen they are all in the historic center of the city, which is also the place you want to be because the rest of the city is dead at night (only shops and buildings where "normal" ;) people work).The flat we stayed in had 2 bathrooms (cleanliness: average), a kitchen, three 6 bed rooms and one 2 bed room.Overall, I would recommend the place, altough it is a bit pricy considering you are living in someones arpartement.

Disliked: .
