I feel an urge to write a review for this hostel since so many have written so much negative about it. First I like to say that I have traveled a lot, both in Europe, southeastern Asia, Africa, Australia and now the U.S. since I'm a student I quite often stay at hostel. I found Amsterdam hostel in San Fransisco... More

Gross hostel. There was Vomit right on the staircase . It was cleaned for 24 hours. It was next to my room, smelled. I will avoid this hostel at any cost. I also had to wait 30 minutes the first day before the front desk person had caught up with other guests.

I have read some negative review on this place and I say to those that you get what you pay for and this is the middle of the city and a hostel not a hotel. If you are used to hostels you will be fine and I think the place had plenty of good facilities. It could do with a... More

I will start by saying that if you are accustomed to European hostels this place is not for you. We were a group of six friends who needed a place to stay for 3 nights to see the city and buy a car before heading to Tahoe. The carpet stinks, the toilets back up, the beds are cheap but comfortable... More

I returned to San Francisco having been there a week before. This hostel was a last minute thing. It's not the worst hostel but it's certainly not the greatest. Location is ok, bedrooms are ok and shower is good. Pretty average.

I booked a doble room with private restroom. The room was clean, but, on the first day, there was not room service. The location is so good, near from shooping and restaurants. Breakfast is pancakes that you prepare by yourself... please, don't make it! Is terrible!

Probably one of the worst hostels I have ever stayed in. Seriously needs renovated or really well cleaned. Room had a really bad smell of urine and other substances... It was so dark and small. Windows didn't open for fresh air. It was quite suffocating in there. Free breakfast is a bucket full of batter to make pancakes? Place was... More

It is true that the carpet smells throughout but regardless, excellent value for your money. Great location, free breakfast and maids kept the ensuite clean everyday. For a hostel, it was awesome. The room did need a few more electrical outlets however just because there were 4 of us in the room and only 2 plugs to charge our phone... More

This hostel is located right in the centre of the city, so it's easy to go and visit SF from there. The staff are friendly and helpful but no more than that. Perfect hostel for backpackers (even couples since you can have a private room) and breakfast is included. Overall positive experience. Price ok for what and where it is!
