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
Safety of the area
very close to main streets
not so comfortable beds and sux shower
it was close to everything i wanted to go
No parking, got a 66 dollar ticket for parking on the street outside the hostel. no a/c or fan, just an open window to let the air in. It was noisy , there was a business that had activity all night long, so it was not easy to sleep. Halls were dirty as was the kitchen area, bathrooms were ok, not a lot of waiting to use bathrooms
I FOUND A MOUSE IN THE BATHROOM!
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!
