location, very friendly and helpful stuff, community, breakfast,
I am very sensitive to noise so for me it was a little bit noisy, but not too bad.
I liked the eviroment and the staff was great and very helpful. Very clean is good for the price. The only thing is that is very noisy . and cant go to sleep.
too noisy (downtown area)
Good location and nice staff
Kitchen is not open 24 hr i leave at ealry morning and would like to cook by myself.
Location and staff
Excellent location and value for money
Our room overlooked the road and was only single glazed so due to central location was pretty noisy. Rooms on the other side of the hall were probably better
- The private bathroom - The location, very close to transport - The breakfast , eventhough we have to wash the dishes at the end (we liked it also too)
I like everything about this hostel
Location Foreigners Private bathroom Kitchen area The events offered
The extra charges in the fine print
Very good location for exploring San Francisco by cable car or bus. Close to Union Square shopping and restaurants. Very clean bathrooms and bedrooms.
Traffic noise, but it's the middle of the city so to be expected.
Friendly, welcoming and helpful staff; It was great to see recycling bins and toilets that re-use hand-wash water;Towels and linen provided; It was great to be able to use the facilities after check out and have secured luggage storage; Well functioning security system in place.
Not having a mat for the shower as the shower door rim left the floor very wet and slippery;
Good location, next to Union square. Discount for bike rental.
Location , reception staff is friendly
Noise outside in the street .
Staff were excellent and very helpful. Rooms were clean.
Beds were too soft and it gave me a back and neck pain that never went away. In need of serious upgrade in the rooms.
near BART station
mattress could be better
Nice people, nice internet, nice location.
The water pressure from the shower was not good.
Extremely friendly and helpfull staff, nice and clean rooms, simple but good breakfast included, free cofee all day
There's nothing to dislika about this place
Wifi was unusable at times.
Good location, just in the downtown of San Francisco.
A little bit noise at night. Homeless anywhere.
The value for money price tag of stay , coupled with great location and people!!
Great place to stay. Good location for transport and shopping. Breakfast was pretty good and the room we had was big enough for two people. Bathroom is a bit out of date, but clean.
The elevator sometimes makes up it's own mind, which can be fun..
I really liked the hostel's location and staffs. Staffs are very kind! They also have a lot of interesting activities. And breakfast is more than I expected.
Individual queen bed room en suite bath was quite noisy and cold. So, we had to sleep with an additional blanket. To conclude, the room wasn't cozy.
Good location near Union Square. We were in a private room which had nice character with high ceilings. Nice decor and styling, looked like it had been upgraded quite recently.
The heating was on constantly and we were told we couldn't adjust it. It was really hot so we had to leave the window open which meant it was even noisier than it would have been anyway. I struggled to get hot water in the shower.
This was my first Hostel experience, and I have absolutely no complaints
This was my first time to stay at a hostile. It was very clean and I felt safe there. I would definitely stay again.
Street was noisy at night, and the bed could have been more comfortable.
