    The hostel manager was the best I have ever met. So helpful, above and beyond the norm.

    One had to be aware at all times to avoid 'unusual' people in the street. For 2 blocks there can be some awkward moments during the day and at night best not to walk alone.

    The place was clean in general terms, bathrooms were clean and the staff really helpful (despite sometimes I found a but hard to understand what the guy was saying).

    The location is bad, lots of pretty weird people. The good part of the back location is that after walking 2 blocks everything turns to normal.

    The staff are friendly and helpful.

    The location is central but that is the only positive thing I can say about it. Me and my partner are adventurous travelers who have stayed and lived in many basic places - comfort is not an issue to us and we're also not paranoid about personal safety. I have however, never felt as unsafe as I did in this place. It actually influenced our stay since we felt that we needed to be back in the hostel before dark. I would NEVER stay here again. It's not worth the bit of money you save.

    The staff is very cooperative and helpful, also the hostel is very close to the Market Street, less than 1 km.

    The area is full of homeless people, prostitutes etc. but as far as I've seen all the central area is like that.

    Staff extremely friendly & helpful, clean room & decent shared bathroom. Would stay here again

    Bit of a dodgy area but then again it is San Fran!

    That it was close to Market St.

    That the room smelled bad That there´s no control about who smokes inside the rooms despite having signs of no smoking allowed. That they had never cleaned the windows (they are all full of ashes, rest of joints, cigarretes) and they smell terribly bad. The wifi had issues. The showers have nothing to hang your towel or to place your gel/shampoo.

    Cheap place to bunk down for the night. Our room was clean.

    There was nowhere to park. We had to pay $50 to park in a private lot for the night.

    for the price and location you probably cant expect more

    its a very basic accommodation. nothing like a youth hostel as i would expect young people and helpful stuff and kind of a communicative fibe. nothing like this you can find here. its a night stay with basic amenities.the windows to the ventilation shaft are filled with people from the neighboring building smoking and listening to loud music...from 6am to at least 10pm so be prepared.

    Staff were lovely, wifi was always good, bathrooms and shower were always clean

    The street isn't the greatest. Isn't safe at night. There's a lot of homeless during day but if you're street smart and not too uncomfortable by this it's fine. Once you walk to end of street you're in a busy shopping mall area

    It was dirty, the staff was unfriendly, the wifi didn't really work with the cell phone, the blankets were too thin, it was cold in the room and the area was really unsafe, homeless people and drug addicts were hanging out in front of the hostel all the time, it was definitely not worth the money

    The staff is superfriendly and the hotel is located in close proximity to everything. The hotel is clean, a verry nice budget hotel.

    Honestly the area is a little bit rough, due to a homeless schelture next door, if you don't mind this I highly recommend staying here.

    Great location close to communication and sights. Well, yes there are homeless people in the area but not more than in other parts of SF and we never felt threatened. Great free map.

    You get what you pay for and no more. No room for social interaction or guidance from the staff.

    I stayed 3 nights while working downtown for the weekend. I was a 2 minute walk from my job at Powell&Market, so location was excellent! Staff was very nice! Willing to answer any questions I had, and always available. I was allowed to have guests over in the evening, no problem (with id), I went in and out as I pleased. One day I had to check out, then back in later in the evening when I could pay after work, the office offered to hold my bags, & the room I liked - wonderful! The room I had had plenty of space, full sink and mirror, dresser, beside table, and desk. Tv worked (no hbo..?) wifi was fast and never went out the whole time I was there. Bed was a little soft, but I slept fine. Nice warm blanket. No bugs. Bathrooms across the hall were clean and always had tp. The view out the window was a wall and bird poop, but hey I rather see that then a bum pooping! And it blocked any loud street sounds- find the positive! The area can be a little bit of a culture shock for some people, but I am used to the city and know the TL area. The homeless and mentally ill people will not bother you if you walk like you know where you're going, smile politely if they say hello, and keep moving! Recently a cop is always parked on Turk st, 24hours. Overall, for the about $60 you pay, you get a central, clean room! When you make your booking, ask for a room close to the office if possible. I do that wherever I stay somewhere, they tend to be the best rooms :)

    Only issue was noise level at night, 2 nights I only got woken up maybe twice, the last night there was a rave going on next door or below. Bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper! But this was not the hotel's problem, the other guests were very quiet and private.

    The room was dirty and when I asked clean sheets we were moved of room. The location is good but the street is a little dangerous. Be careful. Besides that, the room is ok.

    It's pretty much downtown san Francisco

    You are putting your life and belongings on the line in this area. Never stayed in a worse room either. Spend extra and enjoy San Francisco out of the TL
