For those who have not been to San Francisco in the past few years, it has become prohibitively expensive. This little guest house, which is not far from 9th street Bart and Muni transit stations is easy to get to and costs very little in comparison to the expensive rates you'll normally find in today's San Fransisco. This is a... More

Stayed here in May 2016. I felt very unsafe walking around directly outside hostel. The bathrooms were unclean and staff not friendly or helpful. Bedroom was very cramped. Would not recommend this hostel to anyone.

If I could give this hostel zero stars I would!!! Without a doubt the worst place I've ever been. The rooms were vile, the toilets and shower area were grim and dirty. The bunk beds were dirty and extremely unsafe to use and were duck taped up. I never expect amazing accommodation when I pay cheap prices, however, this was... More

A good hostel should be a friendly, welcoming, clean environment to which explore a new city. Sadly AAE SF is none of these! It is dirty, dated and lacks any sort of charm. We were in a dorm room of 4 which was tiny, cramped and got sweltering hot at night time with no ventilation. The carpet was dirty and... More

This hostel was the cheapest place available in San Francisco. It was fairly close to a BART station which was helpful when coming from the airport. It is also a short walk away from several bus stops. However, the part of town it is in is quite dodgy. There are beggars and homeless people everywhere. As a young woman, I... More

that could be found through world wide web in San Francisco. However the quality of accomodation is not even close to two stars declared. The rooms are tiny, two-floored beds are shaky, which really felt when person above or below you is moving, rooms are tiny, not even a hook to handle some closes, some rooms are very cold in...

For the cheap price, no high expectation. Guest house look a bit oldies with carpet. Bed linen is ok, Just the bed rack is not so stable whereby go for the upper rack will cause shake. So I change faster to the lower rack after the traveler check out. Bathroom is limited & no separate on male/female, have to queue... More

I have stayed in a lot of hostels and this one wasn't the worst I guess. There were used bandages on the windowsill, chip crumbs all over the floor, the cleaning lady ran a vacuum through 4 swipes and left. The kicker though, I received a bite on my leg and just figured it was a spider or something. I've... More

If you're looking for a dirty accommodation in a dangerous area, you're in the right place. Bed linen are stained, when not perforated. I don't recommend to walk there at night. At least it's cheap... but if you can, stay away form it.

No major complaints. Compared to the prices in San Francisco, this place is cheap, so don't expect luxury. The rooms are basic. A nice thing if you're traveling alone is that you can book a bed from two bed dorm room, which is a nice compromise of price and privacy. There's enough space for two people's stuff, and enough electricity... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighborhood Profile
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighborhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighborhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
