I wasn't able to book a room at hostelling international, so I booked a room here. The staff were very friendly. I arrived early in the morning and the front desk guy happily let me hang out and even eat breakfast. I was really pleased at how open and welcoming this hostel was compared to almost every other hostel that I've stayed at in the USA. When you arrive in a new city after a long travel, it is so nice to have this kind of hospitality. Despite check in not being until later, I was welcomed into the living room where I layed on one of the many comfy couches for a nap after breakfast. I charged my phone and checked in, then went to a Giants game (30 minute walk). If the place wasn't a tiny bit worn down, it'd easily have a rating of 5 instead of 4.
Met lots of Aussies at this hostel, go figure!More
