I stayed in a private room and it was nice for a cheap San Francisco room. No air conditioning, but that was ok because I just opened the window and the nights were cool. Sometimes the outside noise made it tough to fall asleep, but the rooms were clean and the bed was great. They have a nice common area in the basement with a big screen TV, couches, and comfortable sofa chairs.
The "free breakfast" was a bucket of pancake mix and coffee. It wasn't bad having to cook pancakes on an iron skillet and then having to wash dishes after eating--but it was a bit disappointing at first. The WiFi was super unreliable and often didn't work.
Staff were helpful and good location.
Thanks to Oracle for occupying all the rooms of SF.
price is worthy
wifi in room
It is very close to Union Square. So, it was easy to go anywhere.
The carpet is so old that smells really bad. I stayed in the first floor (basement) and it was very noise because it is close to TV room, computer area and the kitchen. So, some guests were hanging in the TV loudly one night. Another day, during the shower, a huge spider appeared. In general the hostel needs to improve theit maintenance. The curtain was broken, there was an hole in the wall...
Mini fridge and microwave Free wifi Top location, nearly everything is within walking distance Had the private room with own bathroom - everything was alright!
It is a hostel so lots of young people stay there it can get noisy during the night, if you are looking for a silent place this hostel is not your choice ;)
Microwave in room was useful
3 levels plus basement without a elevator! Room was not clean and in need of renovation. Window was dirty and glass cracked. Toilet seat did not fit toilet bowl. The internal door lock did not function. The carpet had dust buildup around the edges The furniture and curtains were old and dilapidated. The fridge was noisy and the antiquated tube tv kept flickering. Only one double power point in room with an extension cord running across the room for tv was a serious hazard. They do not routinely make up room daily - only after room is vacated! Breakfast included?? - consists of make your own pancakes, coffee and tea bags supplied but had to boil water in a saucepan. Definitely not worth around $170 per night we were charged for the room.
The hostel is very clean and in a gear location.
The walks are thin so you can hear other loud conversations happening in the middle of the night.
Staff professional, clean, crepes dough every morning for make the breakfast yourself
Booking management could be improved
The location and the price.
Nothing really. It's a good hostel for the price.
- Courtesy of Staff - Location - Private nice bathrooms in the dorm rooms - Free pancake breakfast
- Not always complete information given about the area - Squealing beds & hard to climb on the top bunk bed -Intermittent Wifi in the upper floors
The position is good. However, not perfect due to the hill and proximity to the shelter, a bit problematic to reach at night time. Not dangerous, but a bit scary.
Nobody cleans the room even if you ask. It's expensive and what you really pay for is the mold in the bathroom. There's plenty if that. It's very noisy, you can hear people like they are in your room at any time.
Young atmosphere. Kitchen aalways open. Front desk always open Reasonable price.
Maintenance is poor. Water broke from ceiling twice in 5 days. The repair left ceiling open for the night.... No change of sheets and towels, nor room clean up for the whole stay.
good location, nice hostel, nice staff
Everything was good but my room was by the kitchen and there were lots of noise in the morning. And people used to get into my soon. but I think it's the price of being in a common room lol
Very good price for the location and the comfort of the hotel Breakfast included
Lack of furniture for the bank bed No locker provided when I was there Bad Wifi Breakfast included but not really convenient
We didn't appreciate the noise at night ,
great place. great people. i felt safe!
didn't like the neighborhood. it was loud outside at night making it hard for me to sleep
Clean Pretty central Cheap Free pancake breakfast En-suite bathroom Quiet at night
Cosmetically broken light-switch in bathroom Window was not connected to wall so had to leave it shut Wifi was quite slow at times (but free)
Personal was really kind and they found a workaround for me to sleep in one room, even I made a mistake when I did the reservation. Cheers
People talk in hallway and I can hear them! Often noisy!
Location Free Breakfast Free Wifi Helpful Staff Lockers in bedrooms The Hostel is located near Union Square and the neighborhood is usually pretty Safe. There are many Restaurants and Clubs nearby. You can use the PCs for free and there is also a TV room.
To be honest, I didn't enjoy my stay in the Hostel at all. I had to Share my room with three other People and it sucked. Because there are so many Bars nearby they would come home very late or just continue partying in the streets. Even though the Breakfast was for free, I only made pancakes once. The kitchen is always crowded in the Morning. If you Need a Place to stay in SF I don't recommend staying in this Hostel. If it's only for a few days and you plan on spending your time getting wasted and Meeting Lots of New People, go for it.
Nothing! Checked out early
Hostel required $20 cash deposit, I didn't have cash so I tried to use the ATM in their lobby but no cash came out. I had to leave them my ID until I got cash the next day. My card was still charged even though I got no money. I have contacted the hostel and they have not replied so am currently lodging a dispute. The wifi is horrible, flaky and unreliable and does not stay connected - need to reconnect and enter the code every 10 minutes and are unable to do the basic thing (eg message someone to tell them you arrived safe). The "contenential breakfast" is pancake mix you need to make yourself and that's it. I left the hotel early because I had a knife pulled on me around the corner and they did not give me a refund and they are not replying to my emails! Just, dont!
wifi didn't work most of the time, breakfast was poor, double rooms are far too expensive for its level.
Kind and friendly staff
wifi not clean (bed, and bedspread ) old
Staff is friendly. Towels and sheet were washed. Saved a lot of money. Location is good.
Carpet was stinking. It looked as if it was never ever washed since a 100 years. There was dust at many places like walls stairs, so try not to touch the walls while climbing the narrow stairs. Bathroom was also not that clean. There is NO AC in this hotel. Just a heater. Everything is dirty and old.
I liked the location
The breakfast option was very limited, the wifi was slow, the cable/tv selection was limited, it was very expensive (but that is maybe just the city), we only got one key, there was no phone in the room.
