The Location

El Antiguo
What's Nearby?
Located in El Antiguo, this hostel is very close to Ondarreta Beach and Mount Igeldo. It's a quiet residential area where you can enjoy a great night's sleep. You can expect a long walk to the Old Town, which is where the best bars and restaurants are, but you do get to walk along the beach so it's relatively pleasant.
Nearby Transportation
Plan on a ten minute uphill walk from the bus stop when you arrive. If you're flying in, you can take the E21 bus to the city center, then catch bus 5, 33, or 3 at Avenida Libertad to Avenida Zumalakarregi. It's a bit of a trek, but well worth it.

The rooms are very secure with keycard access and there's bike parking if you arrive with your own bike. While there's no real kitchen, there is a microwave and refrigerator you can use.
