Sorry I had to miss this stay. I have stayed here before and loved it. I'll go back the next time I have an occasion to. Close to downtown, restaurants are nearby, easy public transit. Very helpful staff. As a senior citizen, I appreciate the care taken to making my trips easy and enjoyable.

The location is great and the tours they recommended are good too. The first floor which close to the cafe is loud because the speakers are always on music. It doesn't matter what kind of music they play you can always feel it. But I am sure it's only certain room have this problem. Other than that everything is fine!

We had a private room, for a couple of nights with a bathroom and couple without both rooms were pretty good, they were cheap and cheerful but served us well. All the staff were really helpful and there was additional information about the area around the hostel. It was handy to have facilities to wash your clothes on site also.

I booked my bed through a hostel booker (forget which one), which stated each bunk had a "privacy pod"... do not be fooled. It's a walled off corner of the bed with a light, outlet, and small shelf... not what I would call a "privacy pod". The rooms were fine and clean, however, the hallways perpetually smelled like kitty litter... More

We're disappointed that you were disappointed in your stay with us. Online photos show various angles of our privacy screening and while most guests like it, we can understand that perhaps the description created a different image for you. We have 24 private rooms, so if you choose to give us another chance in the future, you may find them... More

The staff were friendly and helpful, the hostel was clean and kitchen well equipped. However, we did find the hostel to be noisy in the back bedrooms, expect to hear music booming through the floors until later and then restarting at 7am (so loud that nobody even goes in that area in the morning). Also, it was very expensive, but... More

The rooms (2 private ones) were far too smelly. Really. Stayed for 3 nights and could not stand it anymore. Even my clothes had that smell the following day. View on a wall 3 metres opposite. BUT staff very friendly, professional and ready to make your stay a success.

We are so sorry your stay in a private room was not exceptional. If you would please contact us privately at sf@usahostels.com we'd like to track down which room you were in so we can immediately investigate. We have 24 private rooms and they are cleaned daily, but none of our housekeepers have reported anything odd. We'd also like to... More

A great place to stay if you are on a budget. Rooms are not too big but come with all comforts, can be private and even have en suite bathrooms. Breakfast is fun as you can make your own waffles and pancakes and the common spaces are well decorated and interesting. Location is good, about 10 minutes walk from Union... More
