    Location great!! Right in the heart of the action. Our room (once we'd complained about the first) was great. Had nice little balcony overlooking town hall.

    The noise. The springy mattresses. The basic , small kitchen with lots of broken things or lack of things (bowls, kettles etc) The decor! Very poor, needs a lot of TLC.

    Good Wi-Fi and great location are probably the only redeeming features.

    Having stayed in a dorm room at Urban House in 2009, I thought it would be okay to come back in the same hostel 5 years later. I was wrong. The private room I booked was in a different building. Staff was nonchalant and didn't seem to care that their hostel was falling apart. Door handles were missing, toilets were not working, showers and bathrooms were moldy and security was lacking. Maybe their dorm rooms are in pristine condition, but I cannot recommend their private rooms to anyone.

    Cetntral, cheap & nice place to stay.

    That there is just a small chill area with 2 couches, more room to socialize would be it.

    Location was excellent could walk everywhere close to beaches and shopping! Staff where helpful and friendly, and they put on a pub crawl every Wednesday Friday and Sunday nights and that was really fun all 3 urban house hostels all go really worth the money

    The first day we got there the kitchen was filthy and smelt really bad although the cleaners had cleaned it up by the afternoon. You could feel the springs in the beds and we had a room closest to the road so all you could hear was the buses all night. If your wanting a warm shower have it at about 3pm or you'll be ha OMG a freezing cold shower

    This is a great set of places to crash in San Sebastian. It's a hostel, so you're not going to get five star dining and a lot of privacy, but you shouldn't be expecting it. As far as hostels go, it's great. The staff is friendly, attentive, speak English, and are always happy to share advice on places to go around the city. The bedrooms and bathrooms were clean and bright, beds were comfortable, etc. There were also a bunch of other interesting young people staying there, which made everything even better. I would highly recommend staying here, and if I ever make my way back to San Sebastian I'll definitely book here again.

    The wifi wasn't working.

    Very central and the reception staff were very helpful and were great in giving us an afternoon agenda to get the most out of our time in Sans Sebastian

    The directions to find were hard to follow

    Very big bathrooms, best shower I've had at all hostels in Europe

    Average to none wifi which is such a basic requirement for travellers. Everyone huddled into the hallway area to attempt to get access. The hostel wasn't even full with guests & even at off- peak times you couldn't get access. I heard so many people complain about the wifi so I'm sure it's a problem that should've been fixed long ago.

    Location.

    I had to pay cash as they were having technical problems. I didn't think it was good value and way over priced.

    The staff were great and the location is unbeatable

    This place is dirty and there are bedbugs. Bedbugs are never worth the stay regardless of how great the location and staff are.

    convenient location, friendly staff

    i booked here because the site specifically said there was wifi in all locations, but i could never get it to connect. others i talked to were having the same problem. also, the room i was sharing with 3 other girld had no windows. the lighting was bad and there was a musty smell. however, the rooms on the other floor looked very bright and clean. also, there was no toaster in the kitchen -- just a bag of sliced bread and an assortment of jelly for the "free breakfast". to be fair, the hostel was full of a group visiting for san fermin so i think they were overworked and services weren't up to their normal standard. for instance, there were no "chillout" rooms as advertised. i think this hostel has the potential to be a nice place to stay but my visit was disappointing.

    Great location, friendly staff, clean

    Had no hot water in the shower, was ice cold. WiFi didn't work. Advertise free breakfast but was basically a pantry with some cereal. Also, make sure to note that their reception is not 24 hours. This could have been a problem for us had we chosen a different train.
