Staff here are all really nice and helpful although the hostel itself needs a bit of work. Top bunks aren't very wide and don't have any safety railings which was a bit worrying. Have to cook your pancakes yourself so hope you don't get stuck in a line like I did. No water dispenser in the kitchen so you have to get water from the sink, and people are always washing dishes in the sink so.. yeah. The location wasn't as bad as I'd read about. Super close to Union Square and the Airport BART train.
Lockers were good. Beds comfy. Pancake breakfast was great. Cable TV a bonus. Blocked toilets were a bit annoying. And a cheap shuttle to the airport is much appreciated.
We stayed in a 4 bed room only for two nights for a weekend away, and thank god it wasn't longer!! I've definitely been in much better hostels in big cities (including SF). Rooms are very run down, bunk beds were cranky, ensuite bathroom although functional was but very tiny and old, common kitchen is small and messy, and breakfast was practically non-existent (even if they claim there is!). The only good thing is the location. Next time, I'll try other hostels before repeating this one.
