So this was our second hostel experience, so we had an idea of what it would be like after our first hostel. But this was a great place to stay. Check in was easy, we were given fresh linen and bedding upon arrival, a lift took us to the second floor which we were staying on. Our room mates (1... More

Enjoyed my stay here! Breakfast included, a little simple, but nice anyway. Pretty good located and easy to get around. Only thing was that the area around could be a little creepy, but I didnt care about that. Also had clean and nice rooms! Check it out

I stayed at USA Hostels for 3 nights over Easter and loved it! It's only a short walk from Union Square and not far away from Public transport to i.e. Golden Gate Bridge, so very good location. Loved their little cards with directions to all the San Francisco attractions. Very helpful! I stayed in a 4-bed female dorm. The rooms... More

I stayed for 3 days, the location was great, staff was helpful, and the rooms are clean. There are many amenities like free breakfast, coin laundry, bike rental, and booking for airport shuttle. There are also free walking tours. USA Hostels SF are indeed a little pricier than nearby hostels but I'd say the extra bit is well worth it.

I find most hostels in the U.S. to be dodgy, but this one was ok. My husband and I shared a 4-person dorm with a private bathroom, and it was good. As all hostel dwellers know, your experience is unfortunately tied to your roommates, and luckily ours were well behaved. The social offerings, kitchen and breakfast were good at this... More

We stayed at all 3 USA hostels, and this was clearly the most organised and well ran of them all. Compared to the others it, it seemed to a lot more up to date and keen to make improvements. The walking tour was great and I would even say it's a must do. The Hostel also offered a night tour... More

This is a nice hostel in a great location with good staff, great rooms with bathrooms BUUUUT the smell as soon as you enter the place is TERRIBLE! The corridors smell like used toilet paper all the time specially when they're cleaning it. Downstair they have a good eating area, good kitchen and game room BUT you'll be shocked and... More

Post Street is a great place to stay and its a very short walk from major shopping around Union Square and Westfields Mall. We had a private room with ensuite and it was very adequate and affordable. We had absolute privacy and it was perfect for a base in San Fran for 6 nights. You can easily connect with transport... More

I really cannot fault this place in anyway and find myself always going back! Stayed there for the 2nd time and i still absolutely love it! - The rooms are clean and spacious - lots of free/cheap social things organised by the hostel which are perfect for any solo travellers looking to meet like minded travellers. Events included pub crawls,... More
