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!
