Fantastic Hostel in San Sebastian!
My husband and I were walking the Camino de Santiago from San Sebastian to Santiago. We stayed at Koba Hostel in a private room for three nights (it was the beginning of our honeymoon). There are dorm facilities as well. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Koba! The facility is wonderfully clean (I'd go so far as to say spotless); a New York City kind of vibe to the decor; a terrific common area with screen/films/comfy cushion multi-level seating; nice sized private room and bath; eco-friendly; good breakfast and kitchen facility; and personalized attention like I've never seen. Co-owner Aldietz went out of her way to be helpful during our stay. The location is central - a few blocks from the beach, close to bars and restaurants, but not noisy. Everyone behind the desk was helpful and multi-lingual. There is not a single negative to our 3-night stay. This was my first hostel experience, and it was beyond my expectations. If you're looking for a hostel in San Sebasitian, you can't do better than this! Bravo, Koba, bravo! We loved our stay, and we will be back!

駅から徒歩20分弱。ホステル周囲にはおいしいバルも数軒あり、バル街へも徒歩15分程度で行けて立地はよかった。ホステル自体も清潔で部屋もトレイ、シャワーが別々になっていてよかった。ベッドルーム内に独立洗面台があったので、寝ているときに他人が使用すると少し音が気になった。部屋以外に共同のバスルームが1つあって、ドライヤーも備え付けてあるので、夜間シャワーを浴びるときに同室者に気を使わずに入れるのはよいと思った。 シンプルな朝食が無料でついていて良かった。 ホステルのスッタフはすごくフレンドリーで雰囲気がとてもよかった。またサンセバスチャンに行くなら是非泊まりたいと思えました。

A great place to stay.
Great location close to the beaches and everything you need in the city. Nice and quiet area. The private dobleroom was big and clean, and the hostal offered a good breakfast. We can recommend this in San Sebastian.
