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

We stayed at Orange Village with the knowledge that it was quite quiet so I was not surprised when there was not much going on. The rooms were comfortable and they accommodated us nicely with a pull out bed for an extra person. The front desk staff are a bit unfriendly and unhelpful and the breakfast and things wasn't too...

The dirtiest hostel I've ever stayed in. Seems like nothing have been cleaned in months, the walls were full of stains, the bathroom was simply disgusting. I complained about it and nothing was done. One night a homeless got in the bed next to mine, no need to add anything else, I guess. With few bucks more, you can stay... More
