    My stay at A Room in the City was fantastic! It's close to everything, it has lots of amenities, and the staff was really great about everything. I stayed in a mixed dorm with 8 beds, and felt like I had plenty of space and privacy. The patio outside was a great place to hang out and meet people. I would LOVE to go back again!

    This is probably the best hostal I've seen. Besides the excellent facilities and location, the staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. The beds in the dorms were very comfortable and had great curtains. I'd recommend A Room in the City to anyone.

    A room in the city, San Sebastian is a great place to stay! I stayed there overnight with my mom and the place is near the Concha Beach (5-10mins walk). My room is a twin private room. We received 2 free towels, toiletries and mineral water. Our room is warm (centralised heating) and fan is also available. Superb cleanliness! We also tremendously appreciated the free coffee, tea, biscuits, fresh milk and fruits given. Thank you for your kindness & thoughtfulness. Highly recommend this place!

    Very nice hostel, awesome location (close to the seafront with super nice patio and terrace), friendly staff, clean facilities. Bunk beds with comfortable mattresses, curtains, own light and plug, were definitely a plus on the comfort and privacy aspect. The only room for improvement in my opinion would be the kitchen facilities.

    Great hostel, amazing location, very friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms, beds are amazing, bathrooms always clean, free cookies and fruit in the kitchen :) The only thing is that there are no tours or activities and not a lot of people hanging around in the common rooms etc. so not really a great atmosphere to meet people But still really enjoyed my stay and would come back

    Really lovely hostel. Quite quiet during the low season but the staff were helpful and friendly. I loved the beds with their own curtains, although you need a phone with a torch because there are no lamps! Thanks for a great trip

    Walls were thin and sound from rooms next door were rather audible. But besides the noise, everything was good.
