I was paying $50 a night here, which is not worth it at all. Yes the hostel is similar to a hotel and very clean, breakfast is included which is good (make your own pancakes, fruit, tea, coffee etc.) however, as a solo traveller I didn't feel like there was much sense of community like other hostels I've been in...

I stayed in a 4 X Bed Mixed Dorm in an Ensuite Room. It is centrally located, very near to Downtown SF. Powell St. BART station is close-by, although it is a uphill 15 minute walk. Staff are very nice and knowledgable about the local area. Also, they are very strict with security where you can't enter the hostel without... More

The best staff, the hostel is in a good location and it is safe. Breakfast and the wine and cheese night was great! Good ambiance and facilities, very clean and has a good price. Simply the best hostel I have ever been to! Strongly recommend it.

A friend and I stayed here in a 4 x bed mixed dorm for 4 nights. There were sizeable shared shower rooms on each floor and shared toilets too. The showers were great and even shower gel was provided. Breakfast was included in the cost, toast, bagels, tea/ coffee etc. Located only 3 blocks from Union Square Park diners, restaurants... More

I stayed here back in March and forgot to write a review. Definitely one of the nicer hostels I've stayed at, with super comfortable beds and really good showers. There was a free pancake breakfast I got to partake in since I was up early -- I usually sleep through it. Really the only downside to this hostel is the... More

I booked this hostel after two friends recommended it to me. I wasn't disappointed. It was very clean, small dorm with only four people so quiet at night. Nice breakfast. Got upgraded for free to an ensuite dorm:) Clean dorm with big lockers and I liked the little "wall" on each bed with a little led light and two plugs.... More

I've stayed here many times. This time, I believe, was the best. Price is right. Many free activities offered. Centrally located to Union square and public transportation. I felt safe. Place is clean. Staff is very helpful. I'll be back!

The staff is very nice. Every day they have an idea for you: Pub Crawl, Karaoke night. The location is perfect: really near from Union Square and all the public transportation. I really recomend this place.

The staff was friendly and prompt. The breakfast was pretty good especially for the price per night. San Fran is just expensive and this hostel is a nice place to save money and is comfortable. It was secure and seemed safe and clean. They supply bed linens, pillow, and a towel. It was somewhat noisy the first night, but the... More

I slept in a quiet 4 person dorm and find the accommodations quite suitable for the price. The location is fantastic. For those worrying about the sketchiness of the neighborhood: only a few blocks south really had problems. During my stay I never felt unsafe, though other travelers may be more squeamish. The daily activities were nice. A free walking... More
