- Prime SF location. However, be careful at night 1-2 blocks up and down, as the area gets questionable. Hotels several blocks away go for 5 - 6X price. - Staff is efficient. Always people at the front desk & they help you quickly. Make sure to follow the rules, esp in the kitchen, so as to stay out of trouble. - Dining Hall! Great breakfast/dinner, lots of space, great music, and met some nice people. - Sat night through the morning is noisy! Other nights are quiet. - Clean bathrooms.
Awesome place. The free breakfast is AMAZING! Eggs, bagels, coffee etc. Bathrooms very clean and plentiful. Common space is really spacious and welcoming. Yes it's a bit more expensive than other places but it's so worth it (I stayed at a cheap terrible place prior). You make your money back from the breakfast - so many bagels to take! Beds very comfortable. 10/10! Would definetely come back
One of the better hostels I have stayed at! Super friendly staff and more or less daily activities.
The hostel advertize itself as a party hostel. Didn't see that happening. The profile on Hostelworld says also that it it a smoking free hostel, but it is not. The staff is not very friendly. The thing I did like was the breackfast and the kitchen.
Great breakfast, hugh common area and steady beds (which didn't look really clean as soon as you took off the sheets ...). Lockers were even big enough to put a whole suitcase in them and the rooms were quite big too. It's a big difficult to get a free shower in the morning and the breakfast is only till 10am. Everything else was fine. Although there were table dance bars next door the area seemed safe.
