I'm reviewing their private room. Room is clean with one double comfortable bed. Bathroom is clean and shower water pressure is excellent. Heater works well for cold San Francisco nights. It has a fridge but microwave is not in the room. Did not use their other facilities.
Price is affordable.
AYCE DIY pancakes for their daily breakfast are delicious. But the whole kitchen needs extensive cleaning at once. Utensils need cleaning the right way. There's a lot of guests using the kitchen daily for 3 hours so the kitchen is really messy. An employee should take care of cooking the pancakes and the kitchen. Meeting people from all over the world will be fun during breakfast time.
Location is central which is a plus. It's located 3 blocks away from that unsafe area.
Airport shuttle is available for $12.00 one way. Arrange with them ahead of time. It saves you from walking 5 blocks from Powell metro to the hostel. Bart ticket is $8.95 one way and $17.90 RT. Shuttle price is still very reasonable. I didn't know about this so I bought an RT Bart ticket. There's no problem because I have only a small backpack.
Nadja is very nice and helpful. The others are also nice.
Amsterdam Hostel serves my purpose for this trip so I'm satisfied with the place.More
