Clean, well equipped rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Good facilities and location.
I think the location is central, though it is a little close to the tenderloin neighborhood, where there are a lot of drug addicts and homeless. There are power outlets next to the beds, and even in the lockers! This is nice since I can charge my computer or cell phones even when I put them in my lockers. I like their "pancake" breakfast, where, the batter is already mixed and made for you, and you can pour and fry them yourself. There are also some interesting activities, like free wine and cheese nights and Karaoke nights. It is near a few nice restaurants, especially the Indonesian restaurant just across the street at Post and Jones.
I think it is quite pricey. A dorm room with four-beds cost more than $40 a night, in January! Maybe because it is a relatively large hostel, it does feel overcrowded in public area.
Everything. My first time ever staying in a Hostel, 'was very sceptical and nervous before I came here, but after this experience I will now always stay in this particular hostel. The Hostel activities for tourists is also great, good location.
They can spice up the break fast a little bit, so there is a mixture of different things, they can add eggs f0r starters, even if it is optional, guests can pay for that, but make it available first.
Kitchen, facilities, workers,cleanness of room
Location Good breakfast They have many facilities, even offer earplugs :-)
I don't like carpet on the floor
It was an amazing place to meet young like minded people. Met some good people and they took great care of me. Special thanks to the staff member Briain he was super helpful and generous. He took us to walking tour and showed the city. I will definitely come back here again and stay here. Muhammad Naeem Siddiqui. Pakistan
I like the location of the hostel. Even though there are many homeless people and hills, it's fine. Also, the USA Hostel has lots of programs such as free walking tour, bicycling tour and so on, which was quite nice. Finally, staffs were really nice and gentle.
First of all, I don't like the ventilation system in the hostel. When I got into the room for the first time, I could smell something dirty. It got worse in the morning because people got drunk and slept on the bed. Moreover, facilities were kind of old in general. I can understand this point though, when I think of high price of SF.
It's a decent hostels. All the facilities are well-maintain. The staffs are nice and kind. They have an awesome walking tour for free, and other events. Also, you can book a bike for $21 at the front desk.
I booked two beds, one for my friend and one for myself, with different check-in date. But USA hostels had only one of the booking record, and did not get the other one... It seems there's a problem with the booking system of Booking.com.
friendly staff clean room
around hostel is abit dark and quiet at night , so its abit scary if u walk alone
it can be too loud on their event nights which is often times.
I like facilities in the hostel that they are awesome. Its space is big enough that makes feel very comfortable. All staff are great.
Right now nothing
Great and safe location The place is clean and safe Staff is kind Beds are super comfy Not a party hostel but they organize nice things inside and outside
Nothing. Everything was fine.
Beds are very comfortable, WiFi is pretty fast, big rooms with lots of space, nice common area with everything you need, breakfast: pancakes, different kinds of breads with butter, jam, cheese, great variety of tea and coffee
Price, but that's probably a problem of San Francisco... Don't forget, it's a big hostel with party going on often
All was really good. Price was great, location was great, breakfast was fine and installations were good too. The feeling of the hostel made me feel that I wanted to stay longer and meet some other young people!
The room I stayed in smelt a bit urine. The room was however otherwise clean.
Staffs were informative, helpful and friendly. Wifi was great. Room was comfortable enough for a dorm. Has reading light in every bed. Location was good.
Locker wasn't working, even though we lock but it still can open.
All you can eat breakfast including 'make your own' fresh pancakes Lots of activities.
Nothing to complain about
For San Francisco, and if you're the solo traveler, this is a good value for money. Location is great if you have just a few days to see most of sights. Hostel is safe, clean, wasn't even too crowded (had a 4 room dorm just for myself for two days). Although very basic, nice to have breakfast as well.
As long as having in mind it's a hostel and it's the center of San Francisco, there are no complaints. If I had to mention anything, I'd say outside noise levels were occasionally high and the room smelled like used socks (or equivalent).
Location .. Friendly staff .. Activities
Everything was perfect. Breakfast is pretty good. Staff members are helpfull. I liked the walking tour of Natalie's (The girl with the pink hair) And the city night tour was excellent! It was the best hostel ever! The location was great too. I would stay in that Hostal again.
Really good time there. The hostel is organized, clean and well located. Get a bike and go ride SF.
Taking a shower after you already checked out, no problem. Interesting events and nice planning!
This is the best Hostel I have been in so far. Nothing bad to say at all.
Location. Price . Wifi. Every thing
The location and security. They wouldn't let anyone enter unless you had a room key. Lots of events available for guests.
Housekeeping cleaning. They threw away something everyday of mine that looked like trash on top of my suitcase but it wasn't.
The activities. the staff was really friendly. The location is central and it is easy to reach downtown. easy to connect with other people. The breakfast included "do it yourself" pancakes! great stay
Excelletnte location, staff very receptive, room clean.
