I visited SFO during May 2013 with two friends. We stayed in HI San Francisco - downtown during 4 days.
The positive points of this hostel are the location (close to Union Square) and Friendly atmosphere. The staff are so friendly also and helpful.
It´s possible to go shopping easily, due to so many famous brands shop are in same neighbourhood. Very nice restaurants and very easy transportation to Fisherman's Wharf.And you rent a bike to go around.
The negative points of this hostel were related to our room. Actually we booked room 3 beds, but it was so tight and impossible to open our three luggages in same time. But worst point was the bathroom (tight and cold water). So this hostel is not best one of my entire trip around California, but I recommend to everyone with adventure soul.
