The hostel is on a good location. building and rooms are old but kept sufficiently clean. manager is very helpful.


Honestly this place is the best Hostel experience I've ever had. It's really close to all the major locations in San Francisco and the staff keeps it really well maintained. Free use of computers to find your way around SF, need I say more?


You have to stay here. It's Victorian living makes you feel like you're home.


I think that your hostel's bedclothes is so dirty.
