The location of the hostel is really good; close to the bus stop (5 minutes walk) and not too far from the metro. Rooms are spacious and beds are private with the curtains; they have a really good luggage storage system going on in the room. There are lockers big enough for 2 or 3 HUGE luggages below the bunk...

Good hostel, excellent location near the market street. The really pretty good deals with the bike rental place and other tours services. Good rooms, very clean for a hostel, and they have a excellent breakfast, I was impressed. I would stay there again for sure!

This hostel is ok, it's location is pretty sweet. The rooms are pretty sweet, the atmosphere is pretty dead! I felt at times this was a library not a hostel. They have a cool little back garden, where you can sit and chill with a beer. I would recommend this place but don't expect to meet too many people!

Need some renovation , carpete is one of the things that should be replaced,and maybe replaced for tiles for easy cleaning . Rules in the kitchen : Everyone should place there fridge items in only one supermarket bag per person and no items out of bag should be aloued .

A good comfortable hostel. Really nice lounge area, and good breakfast. Stayed for a week, four of us in a four bed dorm... Never woken up or distracted by noise. Really nice and quiet at night. Definitely recommend.

Been giving chance to this hostel but still feel disappointed by their booking arrangement. Stayed in Oct 2011 and Oct 2013. Both booking has been sent to the partnering hotel across the road instead of its own hostel. I booked through their own website which shown rooms available in the hostel. Year 2011 has been assigned to Fitzgerald Hotel in... More

I have been to SF many times and stayed at just about every hostel. Once I found the Adelaide I fell in love w the place. It is a little hidden, but worth the find. The cleanliness, employees, décor, and even the boss make u feel at home. Usually u get a piece of bread in the morning. Not there.... More
