Stayed for 5 nights in late July, had a fantastic time!! Was traveling alone but had absolutely no problem making friends and finding people to explore SF with. Especially appreciated the free walking tour and bar crawl. Would recommend.

USA Hostels San Francisco is a well located hostel. The staff are nice and helped me move rooms when i told them I didnt feel comfortable in my first room. The showers have bad water pressure but are clean. I met some great people which made my time here even better.

Clean rooms, good bathrooms, excellent cook-your-own breakfast (pancakes!), friendly staff, brilliant location, great wifi, great rates. I've stayed here whenever coming to San Francisco for the past seven years and this is bound to be by far the best place to stay in San Francisco for the budget traveller!

San Francisco is an expensive City, we opted for a private room here to try and save some money. The rooms were clean and catered for what we needed. If it was only about the room and facilities, I would score the hostel higher. However, our private room was located next to a dorm which resulted in doors slamming all... More

The private rooms have shared bath; the fridge in the private rooms makes this option better than many of the upscale hotels nearby. This hostel attracts a younger crowd, skewing toward their 20's. Many social opportunities for guests to mingle and to find cheap entertainment: karaoke night; game night; wine and cheese; free drinks. The breakfast is simple: toast, fruit,... More

Staff was exceedingly cheerful and helpful 24 hours a day! Hostel was super clean. Breakfast was nice, but all carbs - no protein options that I was aware of. Clientele, as expected, was mostly young adults, but I stayed with my 14 yr old daughter (I am in my 50's) and we felt welcome and safe. Activities were geared toward... More

We arrived in the middle of the night from the UK after a very long trip, we booked a private dorm for 4 people with a private bathroom. When we arrived we were told we were not in a room together, and we would have to go in the middle of the night into a room already occupied and wake... More

It definitively very well located in heart of SF. It's really to hop on the BUS or subway to get anywhere in town. The place is clean, neat. Bathroom / shower are OK. Internet is really good and fast. The only weak point is the breakfast which is not always perfect... depends on the day ! Also I think it's... More

The best thing about the hostel was the extremely helpful and polite staff. The hostel is walking distance from Union Square and you can't beat the prices! I stayed in a 4 bed dorm with the bathroom but I also used the community bathroom and everything was clean. I have no complaints whatsoever.

This hostel was crazy clean, with great staff and amenities. I never had to queue for a show or bathroom, and charging sockets everywhere (lockers, bedside, common area) were super convenient. Security was the best I have experienced in a hostel, with key cards for rooms and 24 hour supervised main door. 10/10 would stay again!
