This place is located in the heart of SF yet it offers an accommodation at a reasonable price!! $28 for a dorm bed is the best deal u can get in this city. The people at the front desk are courteous and polite. The roof terrace is one of the highlights of this place where u can go and chill... More

I wanted to purposely find a hostel in San Fran and this place fit the bill. They have no private rooms; minimum is two beds in a room with up to six. Beds are bunk style. All bathrooms and showers are shared but can only be used by one guest at a time. You could rent a entire room for... More

Tiny room for six beds, no lockers for big luggages, just two bathrooms per floor (one of them was with no light and the other was with its toilet clogged). It's located downtown, close to the city hall, and close to many stores and restaurants, easy to get good places in San Francisco. The staff was friendly.

Stayed at the European Guest House in July 2015, I really don't have much to say about the hotel, the entry is guarded with a passcoded door so you will need to make note of the code the reception staff give you, the shared bathroom can be a bit of an issue. The room that we stayed in wouldn't have... More

This was THE most terrifying and disgusting hostel I have stayed in. My flight was delayed and when I landed in SF I see an email saying my booking had been cancelled and that I had been charged - start to panic a bit so I call Up reception - they inform me that I missed check in and that... More

I visited this last year with friends and it was the cheapest place in San Fran that we could find. I wasn't expecting luxury but I definitely wouldn't stay again. It's in what feels like the dodgiest area in the city (constantly being harassed by people trying to sell us drugs). The place is cramped, dirty and besides the odd... More

My fiance and i stayed last year for pride. The clean and friendly environment made our stay very pleasant. Its close to the civic center. And thanks to the location we did not have to use a port-o-potty. Which is why we decided to reserve a room yet again. ;)

I stayed in this place for a while and i can truly say that it s the cheapest place in downtown and good location. If you do not want to spend more money for just sleeping,it is the right choice to stay. By the way i read the other comments written by the others are really overcharge. Ex: information about...

Luckily we were planning on staying in this hostel for one night only. When we arrived the first thing I noticed was the smell, like there hadn't been any fresh air for years. We booked a private double room. The room was big enough for the two of us, there was a small desk, mirror and the bed. In here... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
