Stayed one week in early June 2014.
This hostel fully lived up to my expectations. Nothing spectacular, but exactly what I expected in this price range. My total bill for a one week stay in downtown San Francisco, was the same as a single night's stay in one of the branded hotels!
I stayed in two different rooms, as I had not booked far enough in advance (10 days prior) to secure the same room for all 6 nights of my stay.
Both rooms I stayed in had four beds, and a single shared bathroom. The bathrooms were clean, in good working order, and had hot showers with proper water pressure.
Each room had a mix of male and female guests.
The free breakfast option consisted of what seems to be the worldwide hostel standard of a large tub of pancake mix, access to the stove, frying pans, and utensils. Brewed coffee was also available. Oh yes, as is also usually the case, you are required to wash whatever dishes you use. And please do. You don't want to be THAT dude!
The location is pretty decent as well. It's about a 10 - 15 minute walk from the cable car turnaround loop on Powell and Mission. You may pass a some rougher looking characters on the street, but there's lots of car and pedestrian traffic all hours of the day and night. I felt safe at all times.
