catpantiru It wasn’t clear for me that Hospedaje Donosti@ B&B is actually a flat located at the 5th floor in a block of flats.(but don't be scared:there are 2 lifts working in the building and also some wheelchair facilities). It is located very close to the Concha beach (3 minutes walk) and you have to bring your car in a restricted area (where there is a sign ‘’access forbidden) to load and unload the luggage. But this doesn’t seem to be a real problem, because nobody seems to respect those signs (or maybe the police is more understanding with the tourists?). But that was all about nasty surprises. Amalia and Luz are very kind and very nice both of them. You couldn’t imagine a better host. Luz will give you all the information you need (in a equally convivial and professional manner) and you will discover that Donostia-San Sebastian is a jewellery town and practically has everything for everybody. There is a beach for every taste (Ondarette, La Concha and Zuriola ) and a lot of nice bars and restaurants nearby (you won’t get hungry or thirsty, trust me!). I specially enjoyed the old part of the town, but also the new part is nice ( and they are still working to raise new buildings since San Sebastian is a candidate for the European Capital of Culture for 2016). About Hospedaje Donosti@B&B a little bit more. You won’t have problems about the cleanliness and there are also a few more nice surprises. There is a free computer available (with internet connection) and also free Wi fi and you won’t miss your E-mail. Also there is a safe box in every room, You will have free access to the fridge freezer and if you want to cook something you’ll find dishes and all sorts of pans and even recipes! Let alone you’ll have complimentary oil and a wide range of ingredients. I only could catch a very small part of this lovely B&B located in a small, cosy town with breathtaking views and I’ll let you discover the rest of it.
c_hadrys Nice location in the heart of the old town (but as a consequence noisy at night as it is the district where all bars are located!). Rooms are small - there was not enought space to have our suitcases open on the floor, but it's clean, and affordable.
rsterczynski The place is very nice, clean and well suplied. The only problem was lack of windows in my room, what makes it stuffy and little bit claustrofobic.
sweetray We really enjoyed our stay at the pension. We stayed in a double and shared a bathroom with the others on our floor. We had everything we needed, and the staff were friendly as well as helpful. The two things that visitors should be aware of - especially if they are over 20: 1) Parking fees will increase the cost of your stay by 20 Euros a day. You should include this in your cost calculation. 2) You will have to deal with others' exceedingly low level of hygene and noise, which can negatively affect the average level considerably and quickly, as most guests appear to be fresh from their A-levels yet still incapable of cleaning up after themselves in more than one way (note that there are the - for some apparently necessary - rubber sheets between the real sheets and matress).
stefanie.s the hostel is good situated in the centre of the city. the room was very small but nice and the bathroom was clean.
danstr This Pension was in the perfect part of town, but that means it was pretty loud at night. I didn't have any trouble sleeping, though. The beds were not amazing, but alright, and the restrooms were clean and stocked. Overall, this was a fine place to stay for a few nights in San Sebastian...which is a GREAT place to visit!
jssokolo If your mission objective is to be close to the beaches and even closer to the bars than San Fermin is for you. If you're aiming for a lovers get-a-way or even a relaxing hostel to kick back at then this place would be a disaster. It is what it is, a few bunk beds thrown into a room, a constant wait to use the filthy bathroom, and a kitchen that should be called a sink with a microwave. The staff however is friendly and helpful, and it seems pretty safe and secure for one to leave their things in the hostel.
Stephan39 A really great hostel with really great people. The location is perfect and the staff is fun to hang out with! I'd come back any time.
