Score from 580 reviews Very good
everything was perfect, maybe the best in the world.
downtown SF is where all the hostels are, but it is not a cool place. Mission District would be better for young people.
Staff very nice, individual room really great
Bathroom of the individual room a little bit old and some staff broken, prices quite high for individual rooms
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"?
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
I could smell on the floor. 복도에서 조금 냄새가 났음
It’s convenient and easy to Union Square!
The dining utensils often run out of. No cups and no forks.
Very clean, nice interior, very friendly, quiet. Lots to explore in walking distance
I honestly cannot fault this place. It was excellent!
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 clothes dryers... tried three different ones that took 6 hours and hardly dried anything then finally got lucky on one that worked!
The staff is awesome. I loved how they have a different activity you can sign up for each day.
I liked the location of the Hostel, it's very closed to the main square.
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.
Location, price, convenience
This was my first time in a Hostel. It was an amazing experience. This place in very well situated in the city, very clean, very safe, the staff is super cool and helpful, they have events all the time and the facilities are great (Kitchen, free huge breakfast, laundry room, theater room, free high speed wifi).
Good vibe with great facilities. Close to all the shopping and entertainment.
The toilets were a bit too far from the room
Hostel activists, clean, friendly
Clean, well equipped rooms. Friendly, helpful staff. Good facilities and location.
This hostel is amazing. It's definitely the best in America. I've stayed in its branch in LA as well, and the quality, the organization and the friendly staff prove it worths every penny spent there. I'll surely come back to US and stay in any of the USA Hostels again.
I think the restrooms/bathrooms could be in the rooms, just like in the LA branch.
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
