The 7th Street & Market Street subway station is just steps from this downtown San Francisco hotel. A 24-hour front desk with tour services is available at the Aida Plaza Hotel.

The hostel was very congested. 4 person bedroom was turned into 6 person bedroom.
Parking is uncertain.
It wasn't clean. you need ear plugs to sleep. It's the real backpack experience. Worth for the low price. I felt it was safe. No distress.
The fact it was so cheap. For that it was worth it.
The aren't many restrooms and the ones they do have generally have something small wrong with them (one of the toilet handles were completely broken).
I had a roof over my head and a bed to sleep in, which was all I needed. There's a communal kitchen where you wash the dishes you use. The staff was friendly and helpful.
The room was nice
Nothing checked out early with bedbugs and no refund.
- Not clean - Kitchen is a mess - Other people saw "mouse"
- Beds are okay - Staff is "ok"
Friendly staff, good location.
All rooms are small and unusefull
In a double room with shared bathroom : Bad smell everywhere No wifi service in the 4th floor Doubts about the cleanliness of the sheets in the room Too expensive for what is it
Need more rest rooms.
Location is good.Appreciate if you are providing morning break fast.
Crackhead staff, old dirty bed, smells, dirty dirty dirty -- everything
The common area is closed by 11pm which is not cool cause then you cant hang out in the hostel other than on the narrow corridors......or go to your room and if you share it with other people then you cant fool around in it......
It is a fair HOSTEL....you get what you pay for. Not more, not less. I stayed for 2 nights, it was just fine. Its not the hyatt hotel. But its ok if you are alone or with friends. Not good for couples. Its is fairly clean, not 100% but its ok !!! the staff is just fine. They are helpful. It is a cheap hostel. And you get what you expect from a cheap hostel. A bed and a shower. Not more than that. It is not dangerous. There are one or maybe two harmeless people on the street. Just people on the street but they are just fine they wont even look at you!! You are at a walking distance to the center of downtown, just 5 blocks away. the shower on the first floor as soon as the stairs finish is GREAT. the showers where there is only shower and no toilet are less good. you'll meet interesting people !!
I am supposed to use the bathroom but somebody was still there so I have to go downstairs just to do my necessity.
my boyfriend and I had a horrible case of bug bites sleeping here.
the localtion is really goood, near the station!!!!!!!
I recommend that the hostel should be tidied up. There was a rat in my room. Also bed sheet need to be cleaned!
Receptionist was kind and I could meet various people from many counties. Location wasn't bad.
The place is quite dirty. Dusty window, gray napkin and dust in the bathroom — that's what you can expect. I believe there are better options in this area.
Well, this place was available so we picked it up. It's not far away from city center, so that's good.
Room could be cleaner for the price you pay
There was a kitchen you can use whenever you need
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 don't think I did like something in this hostel. maybe just knowing a few people, that's all.
I have attended hostels in Los Angeles that was the same price but way cleaner.
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.
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.
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
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
Location Price Kitchen
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!
Shared bathrooms extremely clean
