Union Square Backpacker's Hostel
Reviewed August 17, 2006

AVOID AT ALL COSTS. My friend and I had the misfortune to book in here. We asked to see the room before we paid and were flatly told we didn't have a room to show until after check in. When we were shown the room it was filthy, the windows were rotting and there was rubbish everywhere. The man behind the desk was rude and ignorant beyond belief and had the worst attitude I have ever come across. When we asked for a refund he gave us 1 night out of 3 due to their '48 hr cancellation policy' which was contrary to the booking information we recieved. If you want a pleasant stay in San Francisco, please please please look elsewhere.

This was a good place to stay, for about US$45 we stayed in a private double with a nice bedspread, a dressing table, mirror and a big tv.

The staff were lovely and played us lots of DVD's, and the breakfast was good too.

The bathrooms are of average hostel quality.

The location is down a dingy dark alley but is only a few blocks down from union square and there are lots of theatres, galleries and places to eat nearby.

I'd stay here again.
