Location very good, everything very near, for Shopping or interesting places
It's clean, friendly staff (most of them), good facilities.
Very expensive for a hostel. But I guess accommodation in San Francisco is not cheap anyway
I definitely would recommend it to EVERYONE. This is quite far one of the best hostels/hotels I have stayed (speaks a lot since I have been traveling for 10 years). Love the people who work at reception
Everything Great atmosphere Clean Helpful staff Great wifi coverage
I really enjoyed the breakfast were you can make pancakes on your own!
It is situated right above the tenderloin (a quite dodgy area), and can get really noisy during the night!
Everything! This is easily the best hostel in SF (and I've been to many). Very helpful and friendly staff, clean and modern facilities, good music playing, good price and excellent location!
- Great beds with outlet power - Many activities everyday - Very clean
- Too much expensive - Need more restrooms!!! - Much noise from the basement during the night
I liked the place, the localization, the staff, the place is clean and tidy, the price is very good too!
Helpful staff Location Price Cleanliness /security
Washing dishes after breakfast
Very helpful and friendly staff
great position great facilities great events organised great people was a little nervous staying in a hostel as older than usual traveller but everyone was really friendly
Location was ok, close to transit. Wi-fi worked ok.
Funky-smelling carpet in room; disorganized mess at the breakfast room—not well thought-out; the shower cabins were tiny with no room for your things; the sinks were in an open area exposed to the corridor; the one elevator was ancient and slow; the neighbour was rather "seedy", many homeless bums hanging out.
It was very quiet
As usual some people do not understand that 6am is too early to start packing...
Though it was near Tenderloin, Its location was good.
One stuff was very bad. He deceived the change. Due to him, my feeling of this hostel was bad. And room's smell was bad.
I like most of things facility that are provided by the USA Hostel. Its a great hostel, I feel happy to be there in the great location of SFO.
I didn't like the duplex bed which are made by poor iron and not good enough to wear the pressure from the upper bed person movement in during sleeping time. These poor iron make allot of noise, which might be little annoying to sleep proper.
The walking your taken by Natalie was great! She gave valuable insight into San Fran. Also, the activities and events the hostel offered were fantastic. Wine and cheese night, party night etc. I met some great people in my short stay.
Staff worked very hard to provide top service. Cheap meal nights and events - and the breakfast -were cheap. The staff engendered a happy and friendly place. The location was a 10 minute walk to Market Street and the Cable Car station.
The room had no chair, stool or table so we had to sit on the floor to organise clothes etc. A couple of hooks for jackets etc would have helped too.
Price includes breakfast buffet and access to a computer Small dormitory (just 4 in mine) with key and good-size locker - felt secure, especially since guests had to show a key to get past reception. I had worried about my suitcase, but there was plenty of room under the bed; you do need to bring your own (large) padlock for the locker though. Central location, and a rack of slips provides info on how to get to places of interest. Airport shuttle bus can be arranged
Nothing much; quality of sleep depends on your room-mates, of course, but the rules for considerate sharing are clearly laid out and seem to be adhered to. Bunks have individual lights, but those for the upper bunks in fact light up the whole room! It was a quite a steep walk up, but not bad by San Francisco standards.
Great location, great people, great staff. All of the people on here complaining about the bad breakfasts and noisy rooms might want to remember they are paying $70 a night to live in central San Francisco
Blocks away from Union Square; Airport shuttle arrangement; Provide simple breakfast; Helpful staff.
Block away from the area with lots of homeless; Bunk bed makes noise; Hair dryer in the shared washroom doesn't work
Great breakfast - fruits(banana, orange), bagle, bread with butter/jellies, tea, coffee, fan cake....... Fast wi-fi Pretty safe place to stay - much better than the guide book says(which said there would be only homeless people after senset)
The person at the counter says too fast. Felt taking a listening test :( That was after she'd seen my passport, she knew well that I'm a non-native English speaker!
The atmosphere was good, free activities planned by the staff and a huge lounge room where everybody can play futsal/billiards with a small dining area. They had 5 dollar dinners, which are nothing fancy but for the budget traveller, provided a good option to fill the stomach. You can cook your own food and Keep your own alcohol at their chillers so that was cool. We had a room for four, so our stay was pleasant, although on ground floor and near the stairs, sleep quality was good (even though we didn't sleep much)
Nothing, one of the great hostels to stay at.
Met and exceeded all expectations a traveler can have of a hostel :)
Everyone there was so polite and made you feel extremely comfortable. They always had things that were going on at night and in the morning so it gave you the opportunity to meet others and see around town. I was so happy there that I really didn't want to leave.
