Camping / Bungalows Igueldo: San Sebastian's only campground

Located a few kilometres outside of San Sebastian on Monte Igueldo, this campground is the only one close to the city. Don't let yourself be put off by the distance: it is well connected with the city centre by a bus which runs every 30 minutes until late at night.
The campground is huge with about 200 campsites, but due to its location on a steep hill with several terraces you don't feel like you're in the middle of dozens of other campers. The staff is friendly, although a little unorganized. It takes them quite a long time to deal with checking in or out as well as other questions. At night security staff is present to prevent people from camping illegally on the grounds. You therefore have to take all forms with you at all times. We left ours in the car (because we were told so by the guys from the reception) and when we came home at 1am the security guard demanded to see them...
The prices are reasonable: a standard campsite without electricity costs 27,70 euros, but you can add an extra tent for as little as 5,10 euros.

the only campground close to San Sebastian

Camping: From the Train

I wrote to my mother The train is very bumpy, so excuse my writing. We saw the Atlantic from the train and also communities of tenting vacationers.

I was quite surprised at the color of the tents, since most of the time our tents were colors to blend in, like green or khaki. These tents were blue and orange!!!

I do not know what campsite I saw and any recommendation would be seriously out of date because I don't know whether it would still even be there, but it is still possible to camp in this area. I think now they have areas for RVs as well.

Kanpoeder - Casa Rural: Casa Rural

It is thanks to VT Member bnanno that we came to this delightful B&B accommodation just a few minutes away from the centre of elegant, fashionable San Sebastian.

Thank you bnanno!

We had a very comfortable room with a good shower room in a delightful house overlooking the countryside, but only minutes away from the the lively, elegant and active centre of San Sebastian.

Ines, our hostess was welcoming and ready to provide local information. A very good typical breakfast is included in the price (55 euros B&B for 2).

Great location; warm and friendly welcome; very good value for money.
Ines is a member of the nekatur ssociation of casas rurales-:

On the basis of the standards here we would have no hesitation in booking similar accommodation again.
Leaving was like saying farewell to a friend.

Pension: Some budget hotels in old part

Not very quiet places, since most of them are located in the old part of town: bells of church clocks + night going-out area.

Hotel Avenida: affordable luxury

Hotel Avenida is a new hotel perched on a hill overlooking a great view of San Sebastian. The rooms are a good size and well appointed and in the luxury class, BUT at an economy price.

Public rooms are very well appointed and the breakfast buffet is the best we had during 2 months in Europe. Small swiming pool which was closed while we were there. Internet available in public area (fee). Free car parking. Hotel is on a bus route to and from main city of San Sebastian and is about 10 minutes walk to a supermarket and a range of local restaurants - although a steep climb back to hotel.

Aussie Pension: Friendly Aussie owned Hotel for backpackers

I stayed here every year till 2003 when the Euro got too dear and changed the face of holidaying in Europe.

Close to the best Tapas Bars in all of Spain. And when I say close, its actually built over the top of the bars. Owned by Aussie guy from Wollongong NSW.

Agroturismo: Agroturismo

If you go to northern Spain you should at least consider to stay in a casa rural. It is comfortable, cosy, not expensive and often you stay with the locals.

Take a look at this excellent website:

Camping Igueldo: Camping at Monte Igueldo in San Sebastian

A bus is driving every half an hour from the camping to the Boulevard of San Sebastian and back for less than a euro (one way ticket). So no need for searching for a place to park your car, expensive car parkings or things like that. And is makes the camping very suitable for backpackers too. You can find the timetable for the bus at the reception.

The facilities are OK and the people are friendly. There is a bar where you can drink and eat something.

A place without electricity for two persons, a car and a tent costs 12,60 euros a night, that's a bargain isn't it? Well, these are the prices for the lower season, check their website if you want more info.
