Irune Lodging & Guesthouse
Reviewed 3 August 2014

We booked 2 rooms for our adult family of 4 and were given 2 rooms (1 dble and 1 twin) next door from each other. Both rooms were a good size, each with a small but efficient and well equipped ensuite bathroom. The staff members were very accommodating. The location was excellent, however due to the hotel being in the old town centre where there are many bars, restaurants and clubs, the street noise carried into the rooms to about 2 - 3 in the morning - although the double glazed windows cut out the most part, so expect a bit of noise. The surrounding bars served their delicious pintxos and drinks are so cheap. The beautiful Bahia de la Concha is just up the street and it's a very leisurly stroll to the shopping district. A great time sightseeing and eating during our 3 days in San Sebastian and when we return, we wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

My daughter and I stayed here for 6 nights and I was pleased with the experience. There were a couple of drawbacks (thin walls and rough towels) but the location and price more than made up for it. The biggest plus is the location! You are right in the center of old town with it's fabulous food and drink. You can walk to everything! Great shopping and lots of fun to be had. It was easy to walk to the train station on our way out as well.

We had a triple room (three twin beds) as that was all they had available when we booked. So I can only speak to the size of this room - which was substantial. The bathroom was plenty big for the two of us and the water was hot and plentiful. The room was sparse but very clean. The air conditioner cooled the room down in a very short time (although it was loud). I was very happy with our stay here.

Could not find a better spot if you tried. Room was comfortable, small bathroom but everything you needed.
Despite being right in the heart of it all, windows are double glazed so you won't be bothered by street noise. Would highly recommend. Also great tapas bar about 3 doors down.

We stayed here three nights in May. It is perfectly located in the historic area. Restaurants, sights and beaches within walking distance. The room was very clean with nice bed covers, tv, and shower in bathroom. The room was cleaned every day and the towels changed. The owners are extremely helpful giving advice about what to do, eat and see. The only complaint I have is that the mattress on the bed was covered in a rubber encasement which made sleeping on it very warm. I understand the reason for the cover but it was a bit sweaty. I would definitely recommend this pension.

We were staying in this hotel for 2 night during our trip in the Basque Country.

The hotel is located perfectly in the centre of Down-town, close to shops, market, beaches and all main attractions of San Sebastian.

Rooms are not large but pretty good for a couple of people who need just a comfortable bed and shower. There is proper Internet and TV in the room.

Some people may find this hotel is not fit their requirements because of the night-life noise - but this was not a problem at all, we just enjoyed it.

A piece of pain was parking, we had to go to a different part of the city to get a place for a reasonable price.

The staff is friendly and responsive - no problems here at all.

Perfect double room with great private bathroom, double glazed window out to laneway, awesome sound insulation, friendly staff, value for money, and in an excellent location right in the heart of San Sebastián's best. We'll be recommending this accommodation to all our family, friends, and now of course you !!

I was a bit sceptical when my friends booked this hostel. However, to be fair it was totally fine for us. We had a three person room with one double and two singles, all of which were comfortable. The room and ensuite were fairly basic but were clean and with a juliette balcony.

No one disturbed us at night but we could here other guests checking in and out in the morning when we were trying to sleep in (OK it was 10am....).

We stayed in May when the weather was not so hot - so there was no need to open the window/doors to let air in - and the room was fine temperature wise. This may not be the case in summer however and when you may then have an issue with street noise during the night.

Location wise you are in the centre of the old town on a street with some of the best tapas bars in San Seb. As others have mentioned the street is pedestrian only and it is a five minute walk or so to a potential taxi drop off point.

Overall good value for money if you don't intend to spend much time in your room.
