Victoria Hope thinks…

"Fantastic location right in the heart of old town. Not so great if you don't want to hear street noise as it's above a bustling street of tapas bars, but we weren't bothered by this."

Liked: Pension Goiko is in an AMAZING location, right in the centre of the charming old town. The best pintxos bars and restaurants are at your doorstep and you can walk to all the top spots in the city, only 5 minutes away from the beach! The staff are really helpful and friendly...they know all the best places to go and want you to have a great time while you stay with them. A great place to stay in a beautiful city!

Liked: Great location in the old town - close to heaps of good bars. Rooms weren't too cramped and bathrooms were big. The Cider tour the hostel promotes was loads of fun & good food.

Disliked: Kitchen didn't open until 9:30am so had to leave on my last day for the airport without any breakfast or the food I had left in the fridge.

Liked: In the middle of Parte Viejo, sheets were clean.

Disliked: Lack of personal space, everyone was squished together. Promised check in at 11am, but cleaning lady did not turn up on time as such could only get a clean bed at 4pm. Lack of security. Door was open to the street most of the time.

Liked: Friendly staff, though not organized! Friendly guests. Good location!

Disliked: You can't reach the staff by phone (they left a number in the door but nobody answered the phone). The check-in took almost an hour. The bathrooms are not really clean, nor the kitchen. I almost had to help the staff prepare my bed... Still, the ambiance was nice, so were the guests!

Liked: the pension had a lovely homely feel to it thanks to the cleanliness, well equiped kitchen and common area and largely thanks to the friendliness of the staff who instantly make you feel welcome. The two girls that work in the hostel were super helpful and were full of recommendations of places to see and places to eat the basque pintxos.

Disliked: nothing really!
