It was an amazing experience, had no way to be better. The best hostel I have ever seen, good vibes, the hosts David and Aritz are wonderful people and they have always been very good to me. San Sebastian is also an incredible place and I dont want to leave. It was amazing, I recommend this experience to everyone!
This was the absolute best first worldpackers experience. Within a few days I really felt like family and part of the group. There are great vibes in the hostel and whether you surf or not you will have a blast. The tasks are simple and fair. The owners, Aritz and David, are two of the coolest guys I've ever met. I learned a lot from them and grew to admire them as well. San Sebastian is an amazing city and can't wait to go back. Until then, AGUR!
About a year ago I had the chance to be a part of Surfing Etxea's team and I just can't recommend it enough for volunteering! Apart from the fact that San Sebastian is an amazing city with endless activities and a lot of fun year long, this hostel is a great place to work at. The atmosphere is always fun and welcoming and you will for sure meet lots of interesting people every day. Regarding the tasks; they're quite easy to do and not hard at all. Last but not least Aritz and David definitely made my stay even better and I'm super thankful! :D
My time at Surfing Etxea was laid back and chill. Aritz and David are the best, making sure your stay is as great as possible. The hostel itself is super clean and possibly the nicest hostel I have ever been in. Much like working at a flat at a friends house. Perfect location for surfing or enjoying the beach and a ten minute walk to the old town. The job is really easy, especially in the off season. Wouldn't recommend being in San Seb in November because of all the rain but still a great time in a great city!
The most amaizing experience!!! David and Aritz are super cool and good people. I really loved to be part of the surfing etxea team. I felt super confortable and i learned a lot. The hostel is beautiful and the acommodation given was perfect. Donosti is a beatiful place, and we were near the zurriola beach (2 minutes walking). I spend a real nice time in surfing etxea, and would recommend everyone to have the same experience!
I hope to come back some day to donosti and meet them again :D
Our house is located in the heart of the city and right in front of “La Zurriola” beach, completely equipped with all you need to chill out with the best vibes, enjoy the ocean and explore the city. Deluxe!! No matter what your surf level is, we will provide you with a whole range of surfboards in accordance with your needs. Placed next to the best surf spot in the city, it's without doubt the best hostel for those looking to make the most ...About the host
