Clean, pleasant staff and facilities were okay. Nothing particularly amazing for the price but I'd be happy to stay here again if I needed to. The bathrooms in the bedrooms could do with a towel and the page on hostelworld suggests you don't have a kitchen when you do so it would be worth updating. The staff were incredibly helpful... More

This place is so good, I can't believe it only has 77% on hostelworld. The room was spacious with big lockers and a sink with a mirror/cabinet. There are individual shower rooms with toilets so you're not having to using a block of showers & there's plenty of space to get dressed. The kitchen and tv room are lovely and... More

I stayed here for 3 nights with my brother in July 2014. The hostel has good wifi throughout. The breakfast is minimal and the breakfast room is very cramped. The social areas in the hostel are horrible and are not inducive to a social atmosphere - which the hostel lacks horribly. The rooms were okay but weren't that clean (e.g.... More

First and foremost, a great location. Overall the hostel is quite dated, the lift is slow but the staff are extremely helpful. Rooms are reasonably clean overall and can be noisy or quiet depending on location. Several events during the week which are good fun.

The best part about this hostel is the location. It's close to Union Square and to every kind of public transportation. If you walk the wrong way, you do get into an area that's a bit sketchier, so be aware of your surroundings. We rented a private room with private bath. The room was small, but it was clean and...

The location is amazing! The room is very clean and nice. The breakfast (7-10am) includes all u can made waffles, milk, cereals and juice! Every night there is a special event (e.g. Free-pizza, club crawl,..). Sometimes the wifi does not work well. To sum up, good value of money!

Don't be put off by reviews that slate the location- it is actually right across the street from the Hilton and really close to Union Square. We had a private room which was pretty basic, but clean. There was some noise from the street, but considering the price and location I would recommend this hostel for anyone that's on a... More

We shared a private room with bath. The room was small and the street a bit noisy. The included breakfast was very basic but waffle makings were provided. The shared kitchen area was a bit dark and depressing. The location can't be beat, the staff friendly and helpful, and the hostel atmosphere encourages camaraderie amongst the guests. I'd stay again.

Location was SUPERB. We could walk over to the Powell tram stop where you could see the tram turn around and there is lots of shopping and a below-ground visitor centre nearby. It took like 10 minutes for us to walk over. Room was clean but sparse - two single beds, a small writing table and a chair, and a... More

This Hostel is located a few streets away from the BART and MUNI station. For the price I paid, I believe that it is fair to give this place 5 stars. The rooms had hardwood floors, power outlets and the shower had running hot water. BRING EARPLUGS! This hostel is located in the busiest and loudest areas of the city.... More
