This is hands down the best money for value Bed and Breakfast / Hostel in San Francisco! The building and rooms are lovingly and tastefully decorated. The staff were without exception friendly, helpful, accommodating, and sociable. Richard, Alvaro, and Maria always had time for tips or a chat. The showers and bathrooms were always impeccably clean. Breakfast was a well-rounded continental breakfast. You could either do your own thing or socialize with many of the interesting and often international guests. Additionally, there were always coffee, fruit, tea, and cookies throughout the day. Our room was cozy, the wifi was fast and reliable, and the TV was great for me and my kids. The hostel is directly next to several major bus lines and BART. Super delicious food as well in walking distance.
