There was a kitchen you can use whenever you need
Room could be cleaner for the price you pay
I don't think I did like something in this hostel. maybe just knowing a few people, that's all.
First when we arrived they gave us the worst dorm room, it was a very tiny freezing room. We were on a month trip so we had a lot of luggage with us. It was either you walk or you leave that place for your luggage, you couldn't do both. We spent the first night and then we asked for changing the room. They did, the other was a little bit better but still. I guess two bathrooms are not enough since every time I needed one it is always busy. We had very bad wifi when we changed the room which was in the upper lever.
I liked that it was so cheap. The staffs were friendly but uninformed. Apparently there are a couple of different transit systems in San Francisco which they knew nothing about and always wanted to get me a cab.
I have attended hostels in Los Angeles that was the same price but way cleaner.
Nice staff Bathrooms comparatively large with comfortably sized showers Good wifi reception throughout the hostel Well stocked kitchen Easy to meet other guests Close to Civic Center station
Only some nitpicks: Number of bathrooms a bit too low for number of guests -- in the morning/evening it will take a while before you can get one. Thermostat/AC of room broken and heated permanently.
Location Price Kitchen
Dirt of sheets, towels and bathrooms Shared bathrooms (insufficient) Cramped rooms Dangerous street (full of homeless and drug dealers) Rumors of presence of mice Urine smell in carpet
Shared bathrooms extremely clean
Wifi connection was barely decent- I managed to make it slowly work with my laptop, but not with our smartphones. We had been asked to leave 10 $ deposit at check in. We read on booking.com that check out time was 11 am, but at 10.00 am a VERY RUDE cleaning woman woke as up, telling us that we had to leave immediately- when back at the reception counter an unpolite gay (not the same we met the night before) just told us that checkout time was at 10, so we wouldn't have our 10 $ back. Soooo disappointing!
position value for money
comfortable mattress, convenience of location, but sketchy walking there at night
sketchy location for safety, bedbugs in first room, rude staff, shady dealing around cash key deposit.
The staff was really good, willing to help and solved my concerns as fast as he could. I'll give him a 9
The shared bath was really dirty, only one bathroom for 8 rooms, which is almost 40 persons per bathroom, smell really bad, like if someone smoked outside in the hallway!
sort of kind staff
dirty. far fron hygiene. I got bed bug bites. at this hostel.. you should take notice of that.
The beds were not comfortable at all. The room was so hot and the window was not opening. The service also was not available.
The place is awful and stinking! I got there in the night and I have to pay for 4 nights, but the next day I ran away from there, strangers, the place don't offer any comfortable and stinking!! They didn't refund my money back. I lost $74... I hate that place! never stay there!!!
Location near downtown but not very safe place.
Found the sharp with needle in the room! Pemanent smell of weed in the hall. Squeaky mattress. Very small room without even chair. Totally crap place. Avoid it.
You can store your luggage after checkout only until 5 PM.
The location is really great. 5 minutes walk from Civic center bart train, and near really cool clubs and bars (not too close). The price is really good, and the other back packers in the hostel were super cool.
One tap in the toilet is broken.
Clean room. Good bathrooms. Good kitchen area.
Dangerous area. No tv in the room.
Nothing good to say anout the hostel... the area is one of the roughest of the city... i've never seen so many junkyes, homeless and begger as in that place. The microwave was not working, i tryed for1h to make it work but than i decided to eat my dinner cold couse it never heated it up!!! i will never go back there even if they'll give me for free the entire place!!!
it had a roof that you could hang out on
the rooms and the staff and how you had to be quite after ten pm...
Leaving. Other hostels.
Everything else. 1.Absolutely incompetent staff. They don't know anything except no.2 2.Extra charges about everything 3.Unjustified prices 4.Toilets that don't flush everything 5.Was dirty. Very. Go ahead, read the other reviews. 6.Dangerous place. Prepare for injuries. 7.Pictures are inaccurate. For example, expectation + photo - Has a computer. Reality - No computer. 7.
price localization (near westfield mall)
street is a little dangerous building is poor the price attracts weird people
For the price, it was a great deal. Free tea and coffee, roof terrace.
Very clean, perfect location, very good deal for the price you pay
Wifi not working on 4th floor, where my room was located. The manager of the hostel was coming everyday at 11 pm to the common room (where the kitchen,tv,wifi was), turning the lights off and telling everybody to go back to the rooms. So no chance for having late dinner/beer/watching a movie in the evening...
Dirty bedsheets, Small toilet, room stinks
