It is really hard to find affordable accommodation in San Francisco. We stayed here for a total of 4 nights on two separate occasions and found the location great. A quick walk to the BART and close to Union Square. The private rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is one of the best we have had, and included in the... More

I stayed for a few days at Orange Villa and I was quite happy with what the hostel could offer. I was visiting the Moscone Center and the hostel is about 10 mins walk. Moreover, Union Square is just round the corner and the entire area is teemed with loads of shopping and eating joints. Right below the hostel building,... More

Central location - a few minutes walk from cable car station (Powell), Union Square and Chinatown (a must go place for all your souvenir and fresh fruit needs! - not to mention all the art work on the buildings). Also just down the street from lots of big stores like Macy's, local grocery stores, and plenty of places to eat... More

Enjoyed staying here, was a good location, five minute walk from Union Square, and about a 40 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf (the Tram is packed and takes forever). The staff were all really friendly, although when we arrived we mentioned going to Alcatraz and they didn't tell us that you need to book tickets early; we had 3 nights... More

The hostel is located at Tenderloin area. The facade of the place is quite not attractive even the lobby nor elevator. It really looks old school for me. What I really like this place was the service. The staff were so helpful and made you feel at home. The place is clean, well-maintained and definitely secured. I really recommend this... More

The place looks horrible, its very old and is not really clean. The rooms are awfull, I spent 4 nighs there and was horrible. The only good thing was the breakfast. Lots of homeless people around and the staff is not really helpfull. Not recomendable at all.

The hostel is ideally located close to Union square with various shops, bars and restaurants around. However, as any big city it's full of homeless people around but the hostel door is locked so we had no feeling that it was unsafe. And we didn't feel the area is unsafe either. The rooms are clean but the beds not very... More

Our stay here was average. The room was clean and the bed was comfy (we had a private room). The kitchen seemed to be recently renovated and was pretty nice looking. The staff were helpful as well and invited us to club night on Saturday. The location is close to Union Square, and while that is a popular tourist spot,... More
