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

The reception is a busy vibrant hub, with nice helpful female staff, armed with heaps of information on what activities to do on your journey in the city. We chose a twin room at the front of the building that included a bathroom. The room was adequate with a flat screen tv, microwave, fridge, desk, drawers and clothes hanging area.... More

I found the Orange Village hostel to be good value for the price you pay. The location is great as you are close to Union Square and all the touristy stuff but you are also close to the good non-touristy areas like the Mission district and Castro. I have read some people say its a bad area because its right... More

I'll start with the pros. This hostel is clean; our room and bathroom didn't feel dirty. They had wifi and plenty of outlets in the room. It was cheap. Now for the cons. The main con for this hostel is the location. We were warned by a local to stay away from a certain area of the city because it... More

- Pros: cheap, good location, rooms passably clean, towel provided, free Internet. - Cons: rude, rude staff. A pain to have to walk past their unsmiling faces at the reception. Beware the unhelpful guy with the greasy brown hair and sour face! Bathrooms small, with slightly frightening textured walls. Lockers in rooms but you bring your own lock. - Comments:... More

Great location to be able to walk everywhere. Even though this is at the edge of the Tenderloin, we didn't have any troubles. Despite the odd fellow asking for money or a smoke when I was outside, they were harmless. The staff buzz you in the door so you have a level of safety. I was in a private double... More
