Me and a friend from Austria stayed here for almost 2 weeks and surfed Ocean Beach everyday. The owner was the friendliest person you've ever seen, being worried about us all the time because of the numerous big sharks in the water. They're not a big deal, trust me! We headed down to San Diego after that and when we... More

The Adelaide is right in the heart of Downtown San Francisco, putting a traveller in a good spot to explore many portions of the city with ease. The amenities are fairly standard, and the rooms are nice. I especially liked the locker areas under the bed with the power sockets inside, making me feel comfortable letting my electronics charge while... More

Great experience! Especially like the curtain and socket for each bed. THe hostel is in a lane and you might feel sketchy at night if walking alone, but the location is convenient and the atmosphere in the hostel is relaxing. I also like their shuttle service tohe airport. The shower room is a bit small though, others are all fine!... More

Dear Stella T, thank you very much for your review and also for taking advantage of our shuttle service! It is easy and convenient, as it is pretty much the same price as the metro, only that you don't have to walk all over with your bags. Also, I am glad to hear positive feedbacks about our newly refurbished bunks,... More

this place was unquestionably cute; flowers outside in the alley; the rooms have custom built-in wooden bunks with a privacy curtain and a sink in each room. i stayed in 2 different rooms there, and was digging the nautical theme/maps decor, looking at micronesian islands while i brushed my teeth. the lockable foor-trunks with safety light are genius, convenient. the...

Clean, Bed is comfortable, Lively guest room and dining room. Clean bath room. Easy transportation. Staffs are very helpful, friendly and smiley. Only one thing to comment is the upper bed is quite difficult to climb up and it doesn't have any panel or barricade to prevent you from rolling down when you unintentionally rolling during sleep.

It's a a San Francisco hostel with a very cheap price but it delivers. Friendly receptionists, nice living room and kitchen, really good beds (maybe they should do better on the blankets), clean restrooms and bathrooms, laundry area (did not use it though), everything is ok - pretty much like a home with guests.
