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...

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...

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...

We stayed at the Amsterdam Hostel in April, and we were satisfied with our accomodation. The hostel is great, the staff is really nice, the people are great! They offer free breakfast - pancakes :) The location of hostel is the best, near Union square.

Stayed there 2 nights. Quite expensive for what you get. Detergent for laundry was free. Kitchen was bad - poorly equipped! Top bunk beds had no rails. Atmosphere was not as good as in other hostels. No control over temperature in dorm room. You get discount for public parking one block away....

The place is spotless because there seems to always someone cleaning :) The Tech Friendly rooms with...

This is a hostel that's conveniently located with shops and food nearby. I've got a room on a budget with ensuite bathroom. It can be noisy but bearable due to the thin walls. Room & bed's comfortable. Has a TV, fridge and even room heater. Has a shared kitchen where you can cook in but busy with travellers in the...

Pros: - location (very near Union Square) & price (hard to beat in a city that is as expensive as SF) - pancakes for breakfast (kitchen is open from 7 AM), coffee & tea all day (kitchen closes at 10:00 PM), fridge for common use - wi-fi and stationary computers - airport shuttle for 12$ - washing machines available -...

One of the cheapest in the city, nothing special but rooms are alright and breakfast is a bonus. Staff were good and location is really ideal. Definitely could be cleaner in room and kitchen, pillows were tiny and mattresses very soft. Overall ok stay

When arriving at the hostel after a 12 hour flight we were told there had been a system failure on their computer meaning that our booking had been cancelled and the hostel was full. We then had to find alternative accommodation at very short notice and a higher price. We then returned the next day and were told we had...
