At the heart of the fiesta

Hostel Hemingway is located close to the city center and the best sights in Pamplona. Between July 6 and July 14, the city puts on one of the best parties you’ll ever see to celebrate its patron saint, San Fermin. This festival is internationally known as the Running of the Bulls event, but there are other fantastic parts of this fiesta, including fireworks and traditional dances, songs, and processions.

If you’re in Pamplona at other times of the year, you’ll be close to some of the other most important cultural and historical sights of the city. The hostel is within walking distance of the old city fortress and walls, Plaza de Castillo, and Cafe Iruña (one of Hemingway’s favorite spots). You’ll be impressed by the excellent location whether you’re there for the party or a quiet stroll through one of the city’s many parks.
