Apologies for the quality of your sleep with us. We strive for the hostel to be comfortable for everyone. Our reception is always happy to provide guests with complimentary ear plugs, or help a guest switch rooms, if they are uncomfortable throughout their stay. We hope you give us another chance next time you are in San Francisco!

As many others said, you can ask for a shuttle at the desk, crazy cheap too, around $10. This is definitely the best way, alternatively, you can take the BART, but I think it ends up costing about the same.

I dont recommend yo go Walking at night near the station... At Night I have experiencied (in the Centre le SFO) to see people offering sex, and group of people consuming drugs. Also, I remember that when I left the city I saw a boy in the street using a syringe. If I were you I would call uber or taxi.

"Top floor rooms are quieter, unless you get one with a window toward the street. 1st floor is very busy during the night."
"I stayed in 120 (first floor) which was a very tiny room for 4, but conveniently located, close to the showers and bathrooms."
"select room with private washroom"
"Our private room was very quiet as it was facing the inner courtyard. We were able to sleep with the window open."
