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!

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
