A little walk from Pier 39 and Golden Gate but right by the water with views of the bridge and Alcatraz from the kitchen and cafe. Great breakfast, it includes bagel or toast, fruit, drinks and oatmeal. Kitchen is spacious too. Beds however were very uncomfortable. With a plastic (?) cover on the very soft mattress, the sheets kept coming off and turning on a plastic cover is uncomfortable and noisy.


Great hostel close to the marina and fisherman's wharf area. Safe secure with a great staff! Thanks


Perfect location. Unbelievable though that there is only one place in the whole building to charge your electronics.

Great hostel in a central location. I enjoyed the friendly staff, cool atmosphere (in such an old building in the Fort!), and the free parking! Very social atmosphere and all the facilities you could want. The only issue we had was that our room was directly underneath the Cafe and each morning at 7am it was impossible to keep sleeping as the noise from above was so loud. Other than that, great place to stay!


I left a smartphone battery charging at front desk overnight and at morning it had disappeared. The manager said that would return to be with a solution (has found, give a refund, etc) but I didn't have a return. Need AC outlets at rooms.


great location friendly helpful staff
