It´s a hostel, I know, but even being so, should be more carefull with the cleanliness - the linen and towels with plenty of old hair and dark stains. The breakfast announced is also a joke, only a pot with pancake batter one could even think it´s some other guest own...

There was an active construction zone in the hallway outside our room and the bedroom was dirty when we got there. The location was pretty good right in the city, but I wouldn't stay here again.

This place was okay. The location was good, the hostel secure and reasonably clean. The staff were polite and tried to be helpful, but in some cases their English wasn't great and they didn't seem to know a huge amount about the area. The room was fine and pretty clean. However the bunk beds had no ladder or rail on the top bunks. In our bathroom the bath worked but not the shower. The whole place felt a bit rundown and the kitchen was a building site.

Great Location and facilities...but no atmosphere at all. I would recommend this hostel to couples and old people

We were four in a private dorm with ensuite bathroom. It suited us just nicely. Simple and the hostel is a great location. Lots of coffee shops and pubs around. Great value. I'd go back.

Good hostel, friendly staff and good location. It was clean and had good facilities. Not so much happening, so more a place to relax and do your own things like day trips etc. Recommended.

Not very expensive to be in San Francisco

This hostel needs work. Bunk beds are really high up with no ladder nor railing on the side, which is a lawsuit waiting to happen. The internet is constantly going in and out. Hot water is hit or miss. Rooms are old and dirty and you can hear tons of noise from people above (bring ear plugs). And if you're going to advertise for a free breakfast, at least get some decent coffee and invest in a waffle iron. Fine for one or two nights.

Rooms need updating even only just a bit of a clean up, defiantly need comfy beds and better linen especially in private rooms where the prices are pretty up there, the fridge made a lot of noise and woke us up thru the night. Just suggestions

The location is on the slope, so just be prepared. Nevertheless the location is pretty convenient. The environment is generally acceptable, but the bathroom smells.

Good location in heart of san francisco. Rooms, particularly carpet needed cleaning and changing. Bunk beds had no ladders! And no curtains in the rooms!

Not so much to say really. Rooms are like a regular dorm but with own bathrooms which are nice but the staff wasn't so helpful and the free breakfast is pancakes that you make yourself.

Improvements on the kitchen and all the common areas plus the events.

Manager Randy is openly racist and arrogant... Staff largely clueless and unhelpful... Breakfast is disgusting, checkout too early and the customer is always wrong. Stay elsewhere if you can afford it... Americans not welcome unless white.

This was my first American hostel to stay at, and I absolutely loved the experience. Staff were very friendly and helped me get checked in/out with minimal paperwork, there was pancake batter already mixed up in the kitchen in the morning, the bathroom were clean, and the halls smelled clean too. The staff were also helpful with the SF maps. Would definitely stay here again!

Good value, short walk from Powell station, can get a train from airport to Powell station for about 8 usd. If you get in at night, walk up Powell st, left onto sutter, then right onto Taylor. Don't walk all the way up Taylor.
