Stacks of washing machines, computers, pool tables, sofas and sitting areas, large kitchen, decent rooms with a great little half wall thing to keep your bed dark, plenty of charging ports. Sounds great right? Well it is if your un-sociable. For me Hostels are all about getting involved. People are brought together through struggles, helping each other out etc. We... More

It was my first time traveling solo. I only needed a bed and I wanted to meet other people so staying in a hostel would be a good idea. This place is near to a BART station so it's very accessible. It's close to bus and cable car stops so that's a plus. It's also within a short walk from... More

Without a doubt some of the best service and facilities I have seen for a Hostel, you really get what you pay for her with friendly and outgoing staff, lots of events and comfortable rooms. The entire Hostel is easy to move around and encourages a hospitable atmosphere. Use the Hostel for all its resources including a good pub crawl,... More

We stayed two nights, the first in an economy double and the second in a basic double. It wasn't clear to me that the $5 difference was due to noise level until we got here (not that there was a choice, those were the only rooms left - it's a busy place). Any how the first night was SO loud... More

Stayed here for 4 nights in total. It's a very clean hostel. The staff are really helpful and friendly. There are great activities you can do for free every day. There are a lot of spaces to chill out and the kitchen facilities are great. I really enjoyed my time here and would definitely stay again!

This is more than just a hostel. It is a lifestyle. Wonderful staff, and really clean! A few blocks away from Union Square. Best place to meet new people from all over the world. Worth the money? A definite yes!

Staff are very polite and very helpful. Rooms are incredibly clean and good amount of privacy. This hostel is moe like a hotel... Excellent service and facilities,,,, not a normal hostel experience that's for sure. The activities organised were great fun... Pub crawls, walking tours... They've got all you need to explore the city and meet new people. Thanks

My girlfriend and I came to San Fran to try good restaurants and have a fun weekend break. The price of USA Hostels let us save on accommodation so we could shop and spend a little more on good restaurants. This really fit the bill. It was much less than major hotels and in San Fran, we were out all... More
