We came into San Sebastian not having a room reserved anywhere previously (and it was during the town festival.. hardly anything available), Juan was super accommodating and gave us one of the last rooms available (at a great price too).

Couldn't think of a better location to stay in SS. Close to the beach and only a five minute walk to the old town. The room was clean, cool and spacious complete with a handy fridge and a powerful shower! The owner Juan was a great host and gave us some excellent tips for exploring the city. With more to...

We stated here 4 nights in July. Wonderfully situated location close to the beach, old town, and market. The management is extremely friendly.

Even going so far as to do our laundry (at...

This pension is located 100m away from the Concha beach, perfect location with many shops, bars, supermarket around. We took a Triple room for 3 days in August 2013. Good size room, very calm thanks to the view on the backyard. Hopefully the weather wasn't hot, as there is only a fan, no AC in the room. They provide a...

Excellent location, close to the beach and the old city. The room was basic, but very clean, quiet and safe. Wireless connection was ok. The room had TV, fridge and microwave. Free coffee and tea in the reception. Across the street was El mercado de San Martin and Fnac. Would stay there again.
