10/10 Exceptional

The staff are very helpful and friendly with a good understanding of English. The facility has so many interesting extras with art and museum pieces placed throughput. I also really loved the unique signage. The rooms are clean and modern but no frills similar to a Premier Inn in London. Very reasonable price and walking distance to the beach, cafes and buses.

8/10 Very good

Small clean hotel rooms for stays in Antiguo.
Olarain is listed as hostel, but what you really get is a regular hotel room. Clean, maybe a tad small, but it was all I needed. It is part of a student resident, but it was absolutely quiet when I stayed there. If you need to stay near Antiguo, then you'll have most places within walking distance. I'd probably stay somewhere downtown or in Gros for visiting San Sebastian, although you'll have several bus lines run frequently to get to the center.
