By far the best hostel I've ever stayed at! Super friendly staff, clean rooms, comfy bed. The privacy screen at every bed is genius! Why don't all hostels have that? You can make your own pancakes for breakfast! The hostel is centrally located in a safe neighborhood.

We arrived early in the morning but we could join the breakfast straight away and city tour. Very recommended for young people who love to do activities and meet new people. Great atmosphere and friendly staff!

Felt at home, comfy beds and a great vibe. Movie room was awesome. Location spot on, at the center off everything. Do the bike accross the Golden gate bridge. In all though San Fran is very expencive, this hostel is the highest I paid ever at $75 a nite.

The hostel is located in a good positiion to get around the city and the staff has been very helpful. Good level of cleaning, a nice varied breakfast (with the possibility of making pancakes by yourself) and a lot of activities proposed by the hostel staff to discover San Francisco are the reasons pushing me to recommend USA Hostel in...

Every day activities, it was fairly clean and staff was friendly and helpful! You could have breakfast from 07:00-10:00 and make pancakes as much as you wanted. Fellow travelers didn't really appreciate it if I talked to them, that was kind of rude.

The hostel is quite clean. Staffs are very helpful and nice. The location is close to the center place. You can find many good restaurants and shops nearby. I enjoyed my stay there. It will be even better If the sign of the hostel can be bigger.

I enjoyed a lot staying here for many reasons. *The friendly environment: at the first moment you check in, people treats you so kind and they are so helpful if you need help, for example, what you can do/go at San Francisco. *Activities: The best way to meet friends in this Hostels is with the activities they propose. Karaokes, Bicicle... More

The front desk was mostly ladies and they were extremely nice and helpful. Although there were homeless people wandering outside but I felt completely safe staying there. After changing two hotels for my stay for the first two nights for various bad reasons, I decided to stay at a hostel thinking that it will be safer and it did prove... More
