Great hostel. Great location, great price and great breakfast. I struggled to find a cheap hostel that was well located in San Francisco, luckily Adelaide hostel ticked these boxes and many more. Had an awesome time here and found it to be great spot to explore the city.

This is pretty much standard hostel, with everything you'd expect if you have ever stayed in a hostel before. Quick and easy to check-in, and the staff are helpful. There are also secure places to store luggage, bikes and such. It is also very close to main part of town, including Union square and Market street so feels more safe... More

We stayed there a few weeks ago and it was awkward. Cassie, the manager and his friend tried hitting on us. we felt violated as women. We felt uncomfortable staying knowing they had master keys to all rooms even female dorms which was very surprising to us. There was no professionalism what so ever!

I stayed here for four nights with a close friend, and it was awesome! The staff were super friendly and helpful. They cleaned the rooms daily, which is really great. Each floor had a couple bathrooms, but each one is a different kind (half bath vs full). There was a communal kitchen with a large fridge for you to store... More

This was our first time at a hostel, but I would definitely do it again - at least the way we did it. We had rented the "Junior Suite" that sleeps 7 and we were 4 that traveled. That was perfect, since thus we had ample space for ourselves and our luggage (the place would be very cramped, if it... More

Very friendly people at the hostel. The rooms and toilets are cleaned several times a day. You have a lot of choices for breakfast which is free. Every day there is one event planned from the hostel like pubcrawl, movies or dinner.

CO NS : bad neighborhood, the window in our room couldn't be opened, the girl at the reception was quite rude. One... More

I will begin my review with a quick caution and the only real 'down-side' I found during my recent stay at the Adelaide's sister property: The Dakota Hotel: It is loud. You are centrally located which makes it really easy to get around and see all of the wonderful things San Francisco has to offer. The BART and Muni have... More

One of the best hostels I've stayed in. The staff are knowledgable and friendly and they keep the hostel very clean. They even cut up fruit in the morning for breakfast! The beds are comfortable, and there is a curtains hat covers the bed. I was so tired from walking all day that I didn't notice any noise at night.... More
