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

Upon arriving, I found out I would have to pay a fifty dollar deposit for my stay since I was paying cash. Nothing was stated on the website nor was I given this information when I called the previous night and told the receptionist who asked for my card I would be paying cash. I requested to speak with management... More

This hostel is very cold. I booked domitory for 4 person. Hostel room is too drafty. Outside noise is not blocked. I protested to counter administrator, but he repeated the word heater that works, He is very unkind and rude. The wind comes into the room so badly. You do not have the difference to sleep outside. "There is no... More

3 of us stayed here for 3 nights traveling from Aus. We arrived at night and there is abit of scum around the streets but all they do is ask for money and when you decline or ignore you don't have to worry about much. Needless to say the location isn't the best but in that area all you need... More

Regarding the price, it is a very nice place to be hosted. The building is old, but the room is clean, confortable. The receptionists were polite and respectful. It is located in a central area, close to metro station, muni trains and cable car line. I didn't have the opportunity to be in a public room, but I believe is... More
