“The cleanliness of the hostel and the "privacy pods" over the beds are great. Free breakfast with fresh fruits also a bonus. Central location of hostel as well as the little paper notes of directions to nearby points of interest very helpful for first-time visitors to San Fran like me. Showing the key card to staff when entering the rooms (required) helped me feel safe. The staff was very helpful and friendly, decor was nice and the atmosphere was good, and met some great people. Overall it was my best hostelling experience in North America after traveling for 3 or 4 times each year over the past three years.”
“Great location in sf, close to bart station on Montgommery, Columbus offers tons of food and shop options. We had a private room in the annex building and it was wonderful. Had a shared kitchen and bathroom. Gorgeous view of the city. Main building only 1 block away. Main building kitchen was awesome, great facility, well organized, friendly staff. Front desk staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. Every weekday there are groups events going on, posted right in the lobby. Great find! We would stay here again.”
“I like that this hostel is run by a very kind and savvy man, Carlos, and some of his family. Carlos adjusts to you and will accommodate you, as long as you follow the very reasonable rules that keep guests safe. This is not a party place, it's a safe place, with a genuinely caring staff. There are no bugs, and the bathrooms are kept clean. A+”
“SImple, friendly staff, great value. Plenty of restaurants are nearby, and it was a close walk to the downtown area where the AGU convention was held. There are plenty of markets, and walgreens right near by if you need to pick stuff up when you arrive.”

“Everything. Kristy in the kitchen was very friendly and the front desk staff were very accommodating. Great experience. I was surprised that I escaped the snores of the three other men in my room. Quiet and everyone was respectful. Be back!”
