Awesome hostel would defo stay their again, the in laws (60-70s) thoroughly enjoyed it too, private rooms for them of course
Nice, big, modern hostel. Good location next to union square although a fair walk away from Fisherman's wharf, Pier 39, Alcatraz landing etc. Great tours led by staff at hostel - fantastic introduction to the city. Good general facilities - always a clean bathroom available, massive variety at breakfast, helpful staff.
I had a very good stay at this hostel, the location is defintely great and the attention / events are perfect for someone looking to meet new people and have a great time.
The hostel was quiet at night. We stayed in a private room with an ensuite which was very comfortable.

This is by far one of if not the best hostel I have ever stayed at. The staff is great, the security if excellent (you need to get through 3 doors, one of which is by the check-in/out counter and thus has staff watching it 24/7), the price is right, it's really clean, and in a pretty good location! This is the second time I've stayed here, and it's been great both times. Not to mention the free events!
Best hostel I've been to so far. Basically, do yourself a favor and stay here.
Really clean and central hostel. The staff are really friendly and know the city very well, making it incredibly easy to work out what there is to do each day! They have this cool travel board which shows you the 'must do' things in San Francisco, which is an incredibly great idea in a city where there is so much to see!
We only stayed one night, hostel was nice to stay. Very close to union square. There is a market across the street. Only down thing is we drove there at night time and 3 blocks away was a bit shady area and we kinda felt intimidated. Also reception can give more information about the city when you check-in ( maybe it's because we checked-in at 11pm)
We had a wonderful time in this hostel, great staff & great atmosphere!
Excellent all around -- clean, friendly and helpful staff, great location just 10 mins walk from Market Street, reliable and fast wifi (amazingly hard to find in San Francisco! nearest convenient coffee shop open late with good wifi that I found was the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf near Market & 4th), power outlets at your bunk, reasonably priced.
Everything ok. Nice hostel. The staff could be friendlier.
I will have no doubts in coming back if needing to visit the Bay area again.
This hostel was great! It was a little expensive but it did include a substantial breakfast (pancakes you can make, bread/toast, fruit, juice, tea & coffee). The rooms and bunk beds were really comfy & well designed. The bathrooms were always clean and plenty of them around. The staff were friendly and there was a good atmosphere in the common areas. Free wifi and use of ipads, as well as vending machines. Really enjoyed my stay!!
I was extremely happy with my stay here. The facilities were great and very logically laid out. In the rooms, there was sufficient space, and each bed had a privacy divider as well as a light and outlet. The staff was also very friendly and helpful, and the hostel was in a great location-- just blocks away from Union Square.
The Location is very good, close to market street and Union square. Staff is friendly and helpful and the bathrooms were always clean.
Despite a nice staff, if you book via hostelworld you will have a little surprise at the front desk when you arrive (the website says that taxes are included in the price...they are not....)
Very good hostel EVEN if my room had a bad smell and it was very difficult to ventillate.
Breakfast could be a little more robust. The area can be a little sketchy because of the massive amount of homeless people but I guess that's downtown San Francisco? The hostel offers many things for the visitor to do which I thought was neat.
Great facilities. Some staffs are great. Some are not so. The price is a bit expensive for hostel but is certainly good value for money.
