This was a great place to stay, staff were friendly, check-in was simple, and you get a view of the Alcatras. Two things disappointed me though, their profile states that they provide free (or cheap) tours, when i arrived i was told that they werent offering those - kinda felt cheated. Lastly, it appeared that the hostel catered to families, so if you are young and lookhng for a party atmosphere, this is not the place to be (there are curfews).

Amazing hostel. Room are great. I was in a 4 bed room. Loads of space and a sink in the room. Kitchen was ok not much of a breakfast. Only two bathrooms for the whole hostel. So may have to wait to use it. But perfect location. Really couldn't have asked for better

We had a great stay here. Beautiful views of the bridge and Alcatraz. The walking tour on Wednesday morning was AMAZING!! I will recommend that to everyone!

I thought the staff to be excellent and hard working. The same could not be said for a few of my fellow travelers, including the guy who threw my shower shoes at me in the middle of the night because he thought I snored too loud. I immediately reported this incident to the staff, who made it clear to the entire room that no such foolishness was to happen again and gave everyone a free pair of ear plugs.

Great location, nice breakfast with pretty views, big and clean showers, secure luggage storage before check-in/after check-out, staff not the most helpful but I've seen worse, basically it's all okay but the price I paid was REALLY expensive for a huge dorm.


94%

The lockers underneath the beds are very impractical and not convenient at all. Everything else was very good! I would definitely stay there again.

Great place. Just need more power sockets in the room!

If you want to meet other people search for another hostel. This one is more for groups. Everybody minds his own business. The staff is really nice and helpful.

As far as hostels go, this one is great! The accommodations are pretty typical, no-frills, but the place has everything you could really need. It feels totally safe, and has awesome views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz. The staff was totally friendly and helpful, and the little lounge area was really cozy. Linens & towels are provided, and they'll store your luggage for you if you arrive before your room is ready.

Great hostel if you want to avoid the "party" scene. Couldn't ask for a better location, close to everything, without feeling like you are in the city.

I know that because of the history of the building there are not many plugs but you should mention that upfront and have extra plug units on the ones in the common areas. Also a sign somewhere on the scary dark hill next to the ocean would have been a welcoming guidance!

Great location, nice and helpful staff. Nice system with the organic café. Everything was clean, but the rooms are pretty small though. A shuttle to the airport is also available for 14$! Totally worth it!

Nice hostel with good everything and great staff. Compared to downtown this is not a party hostel. You will find people of all ages and a lot of groups travelling through. Breakfast is a bit odd that you only get one bagel one oatmeal and one fruit, but its enough to start the day in the city.


80%

The kitchen is great but the big downside is no wifi in the rooms. You have to go to the communal area to get signal.
