Although it was quiet inside the building, the street noise (police sirens, drunken shouting) was very loud outside my 2nd-floor winder and went on until the wee hours of the morning--not surprising given the location.
Great Value given the cost of San Francisco hotels Very down-and-out location (take a taxi at night if alone) but only 6 blocks from Union Square. Room was very basic but clean and odor-free; bed was comfortable. Shower and toilet down the hall--but that's what I expected.. Sink in the room was a nice touch. There was even a small refrigerator, but I couldn't figure out how to get it running.
Although it is on Turk st. (Bit of riff raff all the time ) it is 2 minutes walking to Powell station - Bart, city bus, trolly car. You can get anywhere with ease from this location. Sweet staff, tons of shared bathrooms, fairly clean for a youth hostel. Smells nice. Highly recommend if you are trying to save money and explore easily.
Great value, clean, very nice staff, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for an affordable, clean place to go.
The shared restrooms and showers were really dirty. BRING SHOWER SHOES. The hallway was dirty. The area was very poor and a lot of homeless
The WiFi was really free and worked great. You really can't beat the price.
my room wasn't cleaned in 3 nights, toilet and shower not cleaned, staff is unfriendly
wifi is excellent
There was hair everywhere, floors were sticky, and the place smelled like urine.
Horrible neighborhood. This is the part of sf yu don't want to be in. Shared bathrooms/shower were disgusting! Had to shower with sandals and bring my own toilet seat covers. Windows were broken and our bed was tilting to one side. Staff was never there.
This hotel was really cheap but I guess you get what you pay for in San francisco. The wifi wasn't the fastest but fast enough and it was free so that's a plus.
Lots oft junkies around. Fehlt very unsafe. Receptionist was never there.
- no lockers - many dangerous looking people outside, we were always glad to make it to the hostel safely
If you have bags with you.. Beware. It's like a 25 feet climb up these thin stairs to get to the hostel check in and to your room. Also there was hair in my bed under my pillows and on my bed when I first got to my room. It's very loud with drug dealers and homeless congregating outside the hostel. People yelling and screaming at all hours of the night. Also, the floorboards in my room have never seen a dust rag. There was a thick layer of dust and dirt and whatever else on them. The morning I left there was no hot water in the showers; I left at 5am so I doubt people had used up all the water.
It was relatively cheap. Free wifi. Closer to public transit.
Tv doesn't work
The floors were pretty filthy, which makes me feel a bit disgusting. The location is the part of town with all the crazy bums.
The sheets were clean, there was free wifi in the room. The location is close to good stuff.
- bad neighborhood - unclean
- not much...
The area was pretty sketchy. There is no free parking at the hostel. There is metered parking on the street but the neighbor isn't the safest.
The hostel its self was nice, safe, and clean.
Terrible cleanliness condition Poor location with dirty environment and hobos around Irresponsible front desk service when something happens like water shortage due to a leak in the water towel and you can find nowhere for help.
Manuel, the manager was very helpful. The location is good.
The location, no bathroom inside, the looks inside and outside, no parking lot.
The price. That's about it. Oh and they had dish network
Right in the middle of 'Homeless street'
Proximity to shopping district (Westfields etc)
Mixed dorm and bunk-bed!
Not very safe outside.
Everything else were poor.
Price and proximity.
This hostel is near the homeless shelter, you can imagine what will happen!
The only major problem was there seemed to be a smoking area for some community social service group outside the window and the conversations were often loud. However i cant see how the hotel owners could do anything about this.
The staff were helpful. Great value for area. The tv in the room was excellent.
I woke up to bed bugs all over the floor and bed. I have bites all over me. Not very clean.
The front desk guy was really chill and helpful.
