We stayed here for 3 days in September. To be honest, I don't think it is that cheap for a private room with ensuite here, but it is cheaper than most other hotels in San Francisco, so I guess it's good value for the area. And we were very happy with our room which had everything you need in a place you are only really in to sleep in anyway. It had tv, bathroom, minifridge, microwave and a decent bed. No airconditioning was the only problem and I guess most of the time they don't need it, but at least we could open a window.
The room was great but this is not the only good thing about this hostel. The layout is fantastic - one of the best hostels I have ever seen for excellent set up. The party areas are far from most sleeping areas and are extensive. There are smoking rooms, lovely laundry area, internet rooms, a huge kitchen and sitting area, a theatre room ... it really is a wonderful place to stay. I am not young but I really liked it and if I was a young person I would think I'd found hostel nirvana.
On top of these features, the staff are EXCELLENT. Every one of them was great and it is always good to meet young people who are switched on, friendly and happy. Some of them were particularly helpful.
The location is good - there is a convenience store across the road and it is only a couple of blocks to Union Square and transport. I would definitely stay here again if visiting San Francisco because it really had a great vibe.
