Loved this hostel! It was clean, had great amenities, private bathrooms and showers, and it was right in the heart of downtown. It is in a bit of a sketchy area of San Fran, but we had no problems! We were out and about in other parts of the city so it didn't make a difference. My car was parked...

I stayed here for seven nights in total and was really impressed by the quality of the facilities and the rooms and also the enthusiasm all of the volunteers and members of staff. The rooms themselves are quite basic, which is what you pay for, but you are provided with clean linens and a towel. The beds are comfortable and...

Wonderful staff, incredible beds. I splurged for the ensuite room and it was TOTALLY worth it. Cool location, funky interior. I was impressed both with communication before my stay and the ease of access I had during my time in San Francisco.

We had a great stay, room is small and has no view but for the price is perfect. The location is great, service was too (you just have to do your own dishes after breakfast, it's a hostel, not a hotel). I reccomend it!

Bring a lock to store your things in the in-room lockers. Or you can buy one for $4. The hostel provides sheets and towels and you make your own bed. The hostel staff were super friendly and the activities were great for solo travelers-there were plenty of friendly solo travelers there! The location isn't amazing if you want to be...

It was an acceptable service, not bad. Sometimes you can smell bad odor in the corridors and in the rooms. It's maybe becuase of wc that are close to rooms or that the latters are not enough exposed to sun.

Thanks for your stay and for your feedback. All of our hallway restrooms are cleaned 3 times a day. Once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening and are well ventilated. Thanks again for your stay and safe travels.

The staff was super friendly and helpful and went out of their way to help us enjoy the visit. The ladies who work there cleaning the rooms are the best, keep rooms spotless and were friendly and welcoming. Location of the place is great, short walking distance to go anywhere you want to go in the area.

great breakfast (especially for america), friendly staff and fast WIFI everywhere in the hostel. I only stayed 2 nights, but I saw that they have a lot activities and other offers-that's great! The first room was pretty small for 4 people (I stayed in two different rooms), but it was clean and I liked the plugs next to the beds.
