Very convenient central location. I stayed in a 4-bed dorm and the beds were huge, comfortable, came with their own outlets, lights and privacy curtains, as well as lockers (bring your own lock, or buy one for $5). Towel rental is $1 for the entire length of your stay, and they can arrange a $9 shuttle to take you to... More

The Adelaide Hostel is definitely a good place to stay in San Francisco. It can be very difficult to find an affordable, decent place to stay in SF, especially on short notice, and this place is a good choice. It's centrally located in the Union Square district, and there is lot of public transport in the vicinity. Getting around is... More

In a great central location, close to nearby reasonably priced car park lots. Modern and clean with lots of amenities, inc washing and computers. Free breakfast with lots of variety. Got upgraded to a double room which was really nice, it was just like a hotel room.

Our stay was good in terms of cleanliness and amenities, breakfast was good with lots of choice. Laundry was cheap and free detergent. The only negative was we booked 4 dorm beds, but they must have over booked as they upgraded us to a private room with two double beds, but we were not couples so needed the single beds.... More

I booked 3 nights at the Adelaide for a quick visit to San Francisco. Much like SF, the Adelaide enchants lodgers with its affable crowd and its cosy corners, brimming with character. I extended my stay for another 3 days and then for a further 2. Leaving was clearly hard. Good breakfast, clever dorms, many great activities and events and... More

I really enjoyed the stay at Adelaide in San Francisco. The little bed closets are perfect for a quiet and private nights rest. The staff is friendly. Breakfast has enough options to fill up on and start the day. There is also lots of info on local bars/ restaurants and tours. We will be back!

A fantastic team greeted me at The Adelaide and arriving jet-lagged and dazed, they took great care of me. I was delighted to find this place and it's slap at the heart of SF. They also run many events and tours and it's an ideal way to meet people. The room was clean and quiet and very comfortable. The breakfast... More

So, I've been living here for a week now and I'm still going to stay for another one. This place is just great. It's located downtown, so easy access to all shopping and "must see" areas, and easy access to transportation to areas in other parts of town. It's the cheapest one I could find for such a long stay,... More
