I am in the middle of planning a 3 month trip around Europe and would like to see some of Northern Spain. I have read about San Sebastian, Bilbao and La Rioja. Accommodation seems to be the trickiest part at the moment. We (my partner and I) have booked a Eurolease car so the typical cheap central city hostels are becoming impossible :(. Our budget is very minimal. Preferably less than 40€ for both of us per night.
Some ideas so far.
1) Holiday homes
ie this one coloursofspain.com/propertydetail.php…
Though I don't like the idea of dealing with a person vs. a company/business.
2) Stay in hostel and put car in parking building
Expensive and seems pointless to pay for a car to keep it in a building
3) Stay in a nearby town and bus into San Sebastian if we want to.
Or Zarautz has a hostel too - no price online - does anyone know?
So I'm leaning towards number 3 at the moment...
1. Does anybody know of any hotels or hostels within my price range that maybe don't have a big online presence? Near Getaria, Zarautz, San Sebastian or another nice town (ideally near the beach and west of San Sebastian)
2. Are Getaria or Zarautz as nice as San Sebastian? (We would like a beach to swim and sunbathe, cheap but good local food/wine and nice scenery)
Sorry its a bit of a novel, but any advice would be appreciated!
