I had a reservation there but did not use it. I know the city very well having lived there over 10 years and know very well how nicely SOMA is changing, but this block of 6th Street IS still scary and sketchy. It is not, as JB from San Francisco suggested in a previous review, because there are African-Americans hanging... More

It was a little out of the way but transit was about 15 min walk away. Carlos the owner was super amazing. He was really helpful and answered all our questions. Gave us some pretty awesome ideas on where to go and different spots to eat.

Starting with Carlos who gave us a warm welcome, this was better than I thought it would be. Though the shower and toilets are shared, one would still have privacy. The room was comfortable and clean. I felt safe inside the hotel as the doors locked and one needed to use a key or be buzzed in. Parking is not... More

It is NOT a scary neighborhood, the crime rate here is extremely low, actually. But, I'm so sorry, there are BLACK PEOPLE. So, if that scares you, be careful. I've never felt unsafe and I'm whitey Mc. Whitey with dark blond hair. And gay. It's clean enough! The TVs need to be replaced with flat screens. And some news channels... More

Stayed here 4 times already. For me its the cheapest and ok-est place to stay in sf. Other hostels in the area are full of homeless people and the places smell. This hostel is fine. No luxury of course but you get an ok room, clean, the place is quiet, the receptionist Carlos is very nice and will help you... More

A friend and I stayed here on a budget trip around Western America. After reading a few bad reviews we didn't expect too much. Our experience seems better than what I have read so far. Walking to the hostel I felt very un-easy, especially after leaving the clean and tidy Fisherman's Wharf. 6th Street is not a street I would... More

I was actually just looking for a place to leave our stuff while we did our touristy San Francisco things. That's exactly what it was. It is not the kind of place where one would like to linger. The beds are comfortable enough so we were able to get good nights' sleeps (or maybe we were just really tired from... More

I have stayed in the hostel for 2 nights with my friend few weeks ago. The building is old and so are the rooms, but we had two very big beds in double room and the room was clean and spacious. The only thing disturbing us was the fact there was no mirror in the room (or shared bathroom)- a... 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.
