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

Staff is very friendly, cool location. They have a very nice common room/living room that is cozy and cool for relaxing. Rooms are clean and they provide some good breakfast (variety of breads, oatmeal, fruit, coffee, tea, etc. Full kitchen. Awesome time there!

Had an amazing time at this hostel. Stayed in SF for two weeks and really enjoyed it. They have really nice staff, the included breakfast is great (fruits, bagels and coffee) and the lounge is really chill. The rooms are nice, you have curtains in front of your bed for some privacy, good space, good showers. The wifi sometimes didn't... More

I stayed at the Adelaide Hostel when I arrived in San Francisco, and am I ever glad that I did! The central location (just a few blocks from Union Square) made sightseeing, shopping, dining and transit access a breeze, while the fact that it is not street-facing makes the property quieter than one would expect for a major city's downtown...

What a cool hostel. The facilities were top notch in the common areas; clean and well layed out. The recently renovated kitchen was perfect was rustling up dinner in and the bathrooms offered all the privacy you need. On the second night there I signed up for a bar crawl and was shown the city sights by Will. The guy... More

The hostel in itself looks absolutely great...that's the common areas at least because we never got to see the rooms!! Despite the fact that we had booked a room several weeks in advance and that the booking had been accepted, when we arrived we were told that there were actually no rooms left for us and that they were going...

During my stay at the hostel, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The hostel is located in the heart of San Francisco which is perfect if you plan on seeing all the sites and is in close proximity to the food store - Trader Joe’s. You can book different trips which is helpful, you get information and a discounted price... More
