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

This is my second visit to Orange Village for the last 3 years. Convenient spot. The hostel itself is somehow redecorated a bit. It is neat as i remembered. The breakfast is simple as usual. But the waffle mixture is good enough to for me while travelling with a tight budget. Last time i stayed in a private room and... More

Had I not spent the night at USA Hostels around the corner the previous night, this place would probably receive a higher rating. I stayed in a private en-suite with a queen sized bed. Just like any other hostel, toilets and showers are shared. they do offer shuttle service to SFO but I did not use it. major selling point... More

Hotel is a short walk to Powell st shops/cable car/BART. Good selection of eateries around the area. Rooms are clean, neat and tidy. I had a private room that had cable tv, desk, fridge, microwave. Towel and linen inc in my rate too. Great security and decent facilities. (Kitchen and cheap laundry) Would be nice to see a bigger lounge... More

To begin with, we made a reservation for 6 people in 4-people-per-dorm rooms. Finally, we were given a 4-people room and the other 2 got upgraded into a 2-people private room. Each room has its ensuite bathroom. My friend and I stayed in the 2-people private room. We took the BART from SFO Airport to Powell station, and that took... More

The orange village hostel is a nice little hostel a bit north of the taylor/Market st. bus and streetcar stop (and not far away from the powell/market metro station). One thing to know is that the neighborhood to the west of it is not the nicest but when you go east from it, you are actually in a very good... More

The rooms were decent size, tiny bathroom, and awfully uncomfortable beds. Great location, a quick walk to Union Square and the BART station. I didn't get much of a hostel vibe from the place and the breakfast was very average. Good cleanliness though and if you are only looking for a place to lay your head it is adequate.
