Rooms and hostel was clean and tidy, however people that work there were all rude. None of them great you as you come in the door nor do they try and make conversation. When we needed assistance it seemed like it was a inconvenience . I walked up to the counter to one lady and said good morning she told... More

Location is great, right near Union Square & Chinatown. However, upon arrival and throughout the stay the receptionists were not helpful, had an attitude and basically did not really care. On our departure, we requested two taxis to be called from reception one of them did not turn up and she came outside and said "has it come" we said... More

I stayed for 2 nights as the hostels I'm used to (HI Hostels) were booked up. The hostel has about 8 different desk clerks and you have to rehash any conversation from the beginning to get anywhere. This is surprising given I saw this many people working behind there over the course of only 48 hrs. However - no manager... More

Everything was in order (towel, clean sheets,...) but don't expect the hostel of your life. The location is an advantage: it is close to union square and 4 blocks away from the main Market Street! One only thing: except from one girl at the counter, the staff is not the most welcoming and warm you would expect from an youth... More

Great location and friendly staff in a cool styled San Fran building however the beds and sheets are disgusting, I think Amsterdam need to invest in new beds for the rooms because I've stayed at LOTS of hostels and never had one as uncomfortable, you can actually feel the springs going into your back. The sheets and pillows you could... More

The price is reasonable. It is near to the down town area. Room and beds are clean. It is not noisy either. The staff are friendly and cooperative. The location is not too far from the places of touristic interests.

Nice place for a few nights, the kitchen is nice and breakfast is okay, really nice people and pretty quiet. No lockers in my room which was a huge disappointment Has WiFi, abd a good neighborhood in the city compare to other motel/hostels!

Found the staff rather rude at time however that could be due to communication errors. Rooms are like any hostel room however there are no charging plugs close to the beds, or at least in our room. Pancake mix is good and I think it is beneficial being able to make them yourself. Clean shower and toilet although all the... More

I was visiting San Francisco over a few days and stayed in a single room. General cleanliness was not satisfactory and the bathroom especially would have needed some maintenance. Furthermore my room had a glass door facing a common area where guests would smoke and hang till late thus making both cigarette smell and noise a constant presence in my... More

Stayed for 3 nights, private room with bathroom. The room smelt stale. The bed mattress was sunken in the middle - extremely uncomfortable. The shower was noisy - you could hear other rooms around taking showers. The whole place is in desperate need of renovation. We have travelled throughout Asia, paid a 1/4 of the price and got so much... More
