We came from a grand hotel to this little place and that may have coloured our view. On the positive side the room although small was immaculately clean, and the en suite was a reasonable size. The staff were very friendly. The pension is right in the heart of the old town. This was our first visit to San Sebastián...

Location was right in old town. Great staff. Rooms a little small but very clean with an adequated bathroom . We were there during the "tamborada" (January 2017) and we have a great time. For some reason we missed the 1 euro breakfast.

This pension is truly a value for your money. The staff is nice and helpful. The rooms are big and clean. The bathroom lookes newly renovated as well. The location is fantastic right in the middle of Casco Viejo where all the pintxo restaurants are located. For those traveling with a car, the reception can sell you 24h/48h tickets at...

This cute little pension, more of a hostel than a hotel, was in the perfect location for exploring San Sebastian. Just inside the old city, we could easily access both the new and old quarters as well as the beach, which was heavenly. We had a room right next to the reception area which has already been acknowledged in other...

The location is perfect and this pension provides the necessities. The rooms are small, as well as the bathroom but it's doable and worth it to spend less than the pricier places in expensive San Sebastián. The hotel staff were extremely helpful; providing recommendations and helping us book reservations. Only complaint would be noise, not from outside but inside the...

This cheap pensione in the hear of the old town is perfect for exploring San Sebastian. The rooms are xmall and clean and even though it is in the main tourist area we found that we weren't bothered by noise. The staff were great and it's a perfect place to stay if you are on a budget.

Nice, clean room. Staff friendly and welcoming. Our only problem was construction nearby that started at 6am but not the hotels fault. Great location in the Old Town with bars and restaurants everywhere!

You step out of this Pension into the heart of bustling pintxo-bar-land, and yet you're only minutes from the beautiful beach. It's small but with cool modern decor and delightful staff. I cannot fault it...who needs four star hotels???

This place was a wonderful place to stay for 4 nights in San Sebastian. Fantastic location in the old town and minutes away from the beach and an amazing selection of bars and restaurants. OK so it's just a room and a bathroom but these guys have got their act together. A simple breakfast for €1 at their nearby restaurant...

Bearing in mind I thought I'd booked the Hotel rather than the Pension, I was prepared to be disappointed but it turned out better than expected. Good points: it is situated exactly where we wanted to be near the bars, shopping and beach; the room was clean with good a/c and free wi-fi; the staff were very helpful and accommodating...
