This is the best hostel I've stayed at so far throughout my travels. I stayed in a 9 bed doorm. Bed's were super comfy, had two outlets for each bed, curtains to make your bed private and dark. Had a bed lamp and a shelf along the bed to put stuff on if you wanted. Personal locker under the bed....

This tucked-away down an alley gem of a hostel is my favorite place to stay when in San Francisco. I recently stayed (again) for 4 days... I always try to get one of the smaller, dorm rooms... 4 people max. I suggest others do that as well. Try to get a room that does not have windows on the Isadora...

We stayed 4 nights here with a friend, we couldn't book the all—female room so we stayed at the 6—beds mixed room. The first night we were actually the only ones sleeping there, but the next nights we shared the room and we had no problem, everyone was very respectful, and although this may not be everyone's experience, i believe...

Good location, walking distance to many buses, restaurants and mall. Really nice hostel, helpfull and friendly staff. I stayed in the downstairs 10 Bed Mixed Dorm, beds are really confortable, enjoyed the privacy with curtains and the plug for your smartphone or laptop. Lockers. Sometimes not quiet because of other guests who don't care about others, but most of the...

Central location, nice private room, comfortable beds, lots of hot water and great breakfasts. Draw backs were the broken washing machines and unfriendly staff. They were not welcoming at all. It's great value and great location

We had booked a room for about 5 days. Breakfast was included in the price, and it had a decent buffet (mainly bread and peanut butter). The place was clean and quiet enough, but we had a problem with the heating in our room. From the 5 days it worked properly only the 2, and we really had to make...

A pretty good hostel, with good communal areas, lockers, and an amazing breakfast (Nutella! Bagels! Fruit toast! Fruit oatmeal!). However, it is in a kind of dodgy area of town, and the bedrooms aren't the greatest in the world. Some odd people staying there when we were there.

You get what you paid for. I stayed in their 6 bed dorm. You cannot put a price tag on peace of mind. Step into Adelaide and you will see why. I have stayed in just about every hostel in San Franscisco. What haven't I seen. Rats. Food theft. Some even have crazy rules of hours you can be in...
