Spent two nights at Pension Alamur during our Camino de Santiago. Great, clean place and a very nice host, gracias Miguel. Slept in a room for 4 with private bathroom which was awesome and had really comfortable beds. Rooms are being cleaned and towels changed every day. Miguel even provides beach towels. Would definitely go there again, good value for...

Many nice reviews exist about the owner, Miguel. Through the friendly smiling - his hands and nudges always manage to go towards females breasts. Very discreet - the first time or two, I thought it was an accident. And I wasn't the only one! I hope I'm not the only one to write a review... I imagine I'm not the...

This place is in a great location. Most of the action is in the old city area - this place technically isn't in that area, but it's literally a 5ish minute walk, so really not a factor. 1-2 mins from the beach. Host is an incredibly nice man. He spoke no English and I speak no Spanish, yet we completely...

We stayed in the private room with ensuite and it was great. The room was cleaned daily with fresh towels and the communal areas all kept tidy. Miguel was a fantastic host and made sure we were comfortable and knew where to find everything in San Sebastián. Although this pension is not in the old part of town, it is...

I LOVED it at Pension Amalur. Miguel is the MAN, end of story...even though he doesn't speak any English, he'll still be able to tell you everything you need to know. It's amazing how he does it. He's also very likely the nicest person on the planet...he makes you feel beyond welcome at his hostel. It's actually kind of more...

We stayed in a four person room after having done a section of the Camino. The room had everything we needed including a really strong hot shower. Miguel the host was fantastic, super friendly and really informative, helping us to get our bearings in the city. The pension is in a great location just minutes from the beach and old...

We recently stayed at Pension Amalur during the San Sebastian festival and had a brilliant time. We were booked into a private room which was cleaned daily along with fresh towels. The room was spacious and the bathroom modern. The bed was very comfortable and there was a nice communal area to have a drink and meet fellow travellers. Miguel...

Excellent place, very clean & the owner is very friendly. Beds are comfortable and rooms are exceptionally clean. Facilities are good and wifi works perfect. For what you are paying its worth every cent. Only downside is the noise from the street just below the dorm rooms closest to the windows. When it's 3am and all you want to do...

Great location, 10 min walking to the centre. Clean, private bathroom, daily change of towels and sheets, perfect internet. Muchas gracias al dueno!!25 euro for a quadruple room. Only shampoo misses. I suggest this place. There are rooms like hostels too

Such a lovely welcome, I understand a little Spanish so understood Miguel well enough, but his warmth would have compensated had I not. Clean bedrooms and bathrooms, with a cosy atmosphere. Excellent location; only one minute from the beautiful beach and five minutes from the old part of the city. Will certainly return, hopefully soon! :D
