“BEST HOSTEL!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

I stayed here for 4 nights, in a private room with private bathroom.

Amazing place.

The room had a fridge, nice double bed. The actual Hostel was clean and super safe. You have to show your room key every time you enter and then buzzed in. The pool table is clean and fresh looking. Breakfast is provided and it's good, can make pancakes from the mixture. I met some of the greatest friends at this hostel, it attracts a great kind of backpacker. Location is perfect, just make sure you don't head the wrong direction or it's not so safe, but heading to union square and it's amazing. Staff are fantastic!!

Couldn't brag about how great it is anymore, you don't have to look anywhere else, this is the party fun place, but if you are after a good sleep, it's quiet in the rooms. WiFi is free and pretty good all over as well.

Enjoyed a really good stay here for 4 nights. For a hostel it really is hard to fault. It isn't the cheapest around (although not expensive) but it is very modern with good facilities. The staff were friendly and helpful and also organised a great bar crawl. The only thing I would say is take a Large padlock as the lockers don't work with the smaller ones.

If staying in San Fran don't hesitate to book this place.

One of the cleanest hostels I've been to. They have hair dryers (girls, enjoy!) and design installations. Perfect location, near Union Square. The weak point is the breakfast, I was expecting more diversity due to some comments I read on Hostelworld and Tripadvisor. For a $34-night in a 4-bed dorm, this wouldn't be a main reason to upset me.

I stayed here in a large group on a field trip, and was really impressed with the standard of this hostel. The rooms were a good size, clean and comfortable. If you don't like sharing, the private rooms were great value! Good location too - close to Union Square and train straight to airport. I was a bit dubious about sharing showers etc as hadn't stayed in many hostels before, but they were fine. Other good extras were the in room safe and charging points, kitchen with free pancakes (we filled up on those!), the computer room with internet access and laundry facilities. Everything you could need for an excellent price!

Room Tip: Private rooms worth the extra money.

The hostel is located near union square but it is not so busy as union square. The atmosphere is friendly and relax there. The large and well equipped kitchen allows everyone to do good cooking. It is also convenient to book tour with reasonable price there. No noise is allowed after 11.00p.m. and thus we can have a good sleep in a quiet environment.

Room Tip: The ensuite room with reasonable price allows you to have more privacy.

For anyone staying in the San Francisco area, this hostel is clean and the staff are so friendly. The place is modern and up to date; but keeps the nice feel of San Fran's architecture. It's a great place to stay and meet fellow travellers. Location is 5 minutes from Union Square and very convenient for BART and MUNI.
