Great location with really friendly helpful staff. Good facilities and fast wifi.
Just one note: showers' heads are fixed on the wall... and if you are not tall enough (I'm 5'5" - not enough) you might experience some challenges to catch the water to rinse soap or even worse: conditioner. I'd suggest to look into it and maybe try to change those shower heads because that light gush of water may become annoying over time.
Guys I am speechless. I am not a hostel type of person, but there are times where you do not have much choice... talking about those times where you have to save some money... so I was planning a strop over in San Francisco while travelling elsewhere. I found USA Hostel, done some research online and overall there were only great reviews, too many to be fake, so I definitely gave it a try. I spent there 5 nights in a female dormitory room (4 beds). This place is unbelievably clean and tidy and super-duper organized. Kitchen and party room is amazing, great space, very well decorated but most of all very well kept. Cleanness is the key word, everybody clean after themselves, the staff is constantly around making sure rules are followed and the common areas are always accessible and decent. Free Wi-Fi with strong signal everywhere in the hotel, much better than many 4* hotel I've been to. Breakfast is included and the food provided is more than ok. The room I was in it's very spacious and amazingly organized. Toilets and bathrooms are always clean and there are so many that nobody has to queue for a shower or anything else. ;) The hostel is "populated" mostly by young guys, so it's not very quiet, but again everything is kept under control so the noise is limited in the guest-rooms. There is a laundry room with few machines next to the library/computer room where you can find books as well as cable connections and chargers for any mobile devices existing. Security is another reason of their success. Nobody is allowed inside without a key and entrance and exits are guarded by CCTV. Super helpful staff. In the hostel you get tourist information and directions everywhere. They constantly organize group activities at a very convenient price and great outcome. Location is fabulous, 5 minutes walking from Union Square, you can reach any side of the city with a minimum effort.
VERY Loud music in the kitchen..WHY?
Clean, friendly staff, great activities, very close to union square, good breakfast. .. I would stay there again!
When you make a reservation on Booking.com for this hostel, you aren't able to make any last minute changes without contacting Booking.com for approval.
The hostel had a workout/yoga room, private hall bathrooms, and a room of sinks.
Expensive for a hostel. Located at the edge of Tenderloin - very shady area with lots of street people.
Modern and clean facilities, free WIFI.
The bathrooms/showers could have been a little cleaner, but I understand it's tough, especially with the amount of people that use them. Still was pretty clean though!
I loved the area it was in. The beds were clean, the staff was very friendly. There were always clean sheets and towels available, and the free breakfast in the morning was a great money saver and a great way to meet people!
the noise from the basement you cannot sleep very well because the people put music so loud..
Everything is perfect!
a bit bad smell at the corridor. Should give draft of invoices for guests at check in to see tax amounts as the amount in Booking is without tax
have activities for guests
Location is a little bit further, but that's ok for the quality it provides!
The awesome facilities, the kitchen is huge, the dining area, the hangout area, and everything is in the tip top condition.
The breakfast was very carb heavy so bought some cereal and milk (not provided)
I travelled solo, the staff were very helpful and would go out of their way. Met great people and made use of their walking tour and bar crawl activities
Location location location
downtown SF is where all the hostels are, but it is not a cool place. Mission District would be better for young people.
everything was perfect, maybe the best in the world.
staff and location was perfect
Bathroom of the individual room a little bit old and some staff broken, prices quite high for individual rooms
Staff very nice, individual room really great
Friendly staff, free wifi, free access to kitchen, some events, shuttle to the airport. I wish I had more fun with other people. I was there for business and didn't have much time to do fun stuff.
Free all-you-can-eat pancakes. Usa hostel is placed on the edge of junkie neighborhood - Tenderloin - so when you walk up to it from bart, I suggest taking either Powell or Polk, especially at night. Free all-you-can- eat pancakes. Speaking of going an extra mile or two...wow...these guys give away complimentary perks left, right, and center, catering to guests with the most contrasting interests. You get to tour San Francisco in the afternoon, or at night; you get to do yoga or a pub crawl; karaoke or play pool downstairs. Have I mentioned "free all-you-can- eat pancakes"?
I could smell on the floor. 복도에서 조금 냄새가 났음
Its good location to tour downtown. And the room was clean. Besides Event was very interesting. 다운타운 관광하기에 좋은 위치이고 방과 화장실 모두 깨끗한 편임 이벤트도 재미있어서 친구만들기 좋음
The dining utensils often run out of. No cups and no forks.
It’s convenient and easy to Union Square!
Very clean, nice interior, very friendly, quiet. Lots to explore in walking distance
I honestly cannot fault this place. It was excellent!
The clothes dryers... tried three different ones that took 6 hours and hardly dried anything then finally got lucky on one that worked!
Staff were awesome, great activities that created a lovely vibe. Very clean & comfy. I stayed in a four bed female dorm for five days. The basement activity floor seems to contain all the party noise and the place is quiet and very pleasant elsewhere.
The staff is awesome. I loved how they have a different activity you can sign up for each day.
The metal beds make so much noise, it's impossible to continue sleeping if someone in the room woke up. The closets are metal and they're so noisy.
I liked the location of the Hostel, it's very closed to the main square.
