Just a few blocks away from city hall and the performing arts district.
The hotel shows a lot of wear and we didn't feel that it was very clean. The common areas were rather small for the number of guests.
I find the location to be good!
What I didn't like were all the small flies in the kitchen/common area. Is it that difficult to get rid of them? There is only one common area, which is quite ok to meet ppl etc.... but why do they close it at 11pm? They seriously send their guests to off to bed at this time.
The price is fairly cheap, although would recommend spending a bit more on a different place...sorry Staff is nice and polite.
The neighborhood is quite creepy at night, although I wouldn't say it's dangerous, just full of homeless people and drug addicts. The fun atmosphere I experienced in other hostels around the US is completely missing, the place is quite flat and boring. "Rooftop bar" described on their website is really just a roof, nothing on it, overlooking to the rooms of a nearby Holiday Inn. Cleaning lady locked herself in one of the bathrooms and spoke on the phone in spanish for quite some time, loudly, while I was waiting to get in. :D
Even though it wasn't in a great neighborhood..The street itself was quaint and staff was very helpful.
No glasses or ice in the rooms
How Eveyone was in such good spirits
not much, perhaps the only positive to take from the experience was how polite the check in staff member was. Possibly due to a premonition, he let me pay for only the first three days of my week long booking incase i wanted to go elsewhere.
there are only 2 toilet/shower rooms per level so if 6 people where showering at a time, the wait could be hrs just to use a toilet. on top of that there was an overwhelming stench of septic near each toilet. the whole building centres around a void to allow inner rooms a window each, this essentially resulted in an amplification of noise coming from the only comunal room on the bottom floor making it rather difficult to stop even conversation entering your room at night.
The cleanliness was very poor The carpets were old and extremely worn. Infestation of bed bugs. Window didn't open fully.
- place (from cheapest hotels is the best place I have been in SFR, close to city center, not so much homeless) - guest there
- not very comfortable mattress - no elevator
Two toilets on each floor... Still occupied.
Parking is NOT available and you will need to use about 30 dollars pr. day to park your car. Hostel is placed in an alley-like street where we wouldn't go out in the night time.
Awful smell, bed bugs and mice!! You should avoid this hostel... and i have been in a lot of cheap hostel around Europe.. but this one is way worse!! I m full of bite of bed bugs and one of my roommate was woke up by a mouse on his leg!
Bed and sheets are dirty，room smell bad，wont go there again
Then answered rapidly by email if you have a question before and while you are there. It is very well located even if this area of San Francisco is not the safest. But as long as you are careful there is no problem
The bathroom where disgusting with hair everywhere on the floor and in the shower. It stinked everywhere. It smelled like urine. There were carpets everywhere which is the worst thing to keep a place clean
It's located near Market Street.
There was a rat coming into the room. Moreover, the room #103 is just mext to the trash. It was disgusting! Don't ever sleep in the room. Everything sucks. No laundry and breakfast too!
good locations, close to tram and metro, good price, nice breakfast places around
small room, smelly carpets
Staff at reception was friendly and helpful, Not too far away from city center and BART
Hostel is located in a dangerous area, wasn't clean at all, not enough kitchen supplies like cups etc., wouldn't recommend this hostel at all only if you're looking for a cheap place
not too clean even bathrooms
access to BART Friendly staff Cheap
Springs in bed went through People really loud past quiet hours
Friendly staff wifi in the room
old run down building filthy furniture bathrooms not clean not the best/saftest neighbourhood overall uncomfortable experience
The reviews and pics I saw made it look dirty, but my room was very clean. It was fun being with young travelers. My roommates were delightful.
The neighborhood, while handy, was seedy to the max. And the smell of onion rings frying from the nearby Hardee's was overpowering occasionally.
I only stayed here because my tour departed the next morning from a hotel less than 5 minutes away.
sketchy location - not safe!
The location was great for exploring.
The area was bad, as a woman I felt unsafe. Plus in one of our four beds there werd BEDBUGS!! I would recommend This hostel only to my greatest enemy.
Very very very dirty. Fleas everywhere.. İn kitchen there are huge mice, especially visible at nights. Never stay..
There's not much that we liked about our place. We had booked a twin and the room was really small. Ok, this is a hostel but I would not reccommend this to anybody else.
It's in the heart of SoMa and everybody warned us about that place, especially at night. I'm not afraid but I found the neighbourhood was kind of creepy.
