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!

This was so far the cheapest hostel I found for my price range (<30usd). The hostel is located on Taylor street, one of the main streets in town, making it very easy to walk around famous spots (Union Square, BART station, China town, etc). Staff were friendly, easy-going and informative to answer your questions. There are free city maps and... More

The staff in this hostel are not ever going to win any awards for friendliness. It all started so well, 'yes of course you may leave your valuables here while you go galavanting off to Oakland'. We come back and meet a friendly Swedish couple in our room which had it's own private bathroom for just the four of us.... More

The location is great, and it is certainly a cheap hostel for San Francisco. However, don't go here expecting a lot - everything is dated, fairly basic and (depending on the room) may be quite noisy thanks to being located directly on the street. Everything seemed to be clean, at least, and for the price you can't really ask for... More

It's in a very central place and you can get to any important SF Downtown landmark in 15-30 mins. The hostel has a number of communal areas where you can relax or socialise with other travellers. Generally it's the 25-35 generation on low budget that it appears to attract from which a certain atmosphere can concluded. Overall very well equipped,... More

If you're traveling as a couple and want a private room this is not the place to go. The queen size bed hardly accommodates two persons, the room is unclean and the facilities are generally in bad shape. On top there is a loud humming noise that randomly goes on and will certainly disturb your sleep if you're not a... More

I booked my room online directly on their website and then printed off my confirmation, including the price. That should be enough right? Wrong, not for this place. I arrived after a long flight around 8pm and was shocked that they told me they were going to charge me double the confirmed price as there had been an error on... More

Staying in Union Square

Neighborhood Profile
Union Square
Originally home to rallies supporting the Union Army in the Civil War, this grand square has become the city's premier shopping and entertainment district containing the largest number of upscale department stores, chic boutiques, art galleries and theaters in the city. It's a large open area where tourists and locals gather, watch cable cars and crowds go by, enjoy a snack, or plan their day of shopping and sightseeing, If feeling the pulsating energy of the city is on your agenda, Union Square is the place to soak it in.
