This is a great value for the money and probably the nicest and best-run hostel i have ever stayed at. Also i passed by some of the other SF hostels and they are not nearly as well located. Highly recommend.

By far the best hostel in town! Great location, amazing staff and many activities (some of them free!) Our tour guide (Brandon) was amazing! He took us to Chinatown, north beach and whereabouts. Really glad I ended up here!

We had a private room which was great, clean and comfortable. The bedsprings are super loud however and all of the doors need some grease . Staff was not exceptional but did what was needed. Not a bad stay .

It's very clean and in a good location not too far from Union Square. The staffs are friendly and the hostel has a very good and friendly atmosphere. The only problem is the neighborhood around the hostel. It's very noisy late in the evening as some would sing or played music right outside the hotel around 1 - 2 AM.

Was a great experience. Either you want to rest after a long day in the city, or do some activities at the hostel. I can totally recommend it!

Breakfast was great, facilities were great, showers were good too, but it was a bit miserable not having a proper window in the room though

The Hostel offers everything you need - the staff is super friendly - they even keep your luggage secure for free - Everything is walking distance so it's pretty well located :) I enjoyed myself staying st USA Hostel in San Francisco - they are offering pretty much events as well... But i wouldn't recommend doing the one day adventure trip to Yosemite National Park 1day Tour ... take at least a TWO DAY TOUR ;)

The room that we got was very very small, thus the room's price was expensive for this room size. After we inserted our baggage to the room there was no free space left except the beds. This is why i gave not a high grade for the "Value For Money" parameter.

Very disappointed with professionalism of the management. An incident happen, my belongings being stolen. Each staff member contradicts what the next one says. The manager, Ryan, differs whom was reported at the locker when the lock is cut. I am not a detective, but with security cameras and knowing when the incident occurred and whom cut the lock. I would think you would look at the tape and see whom handles and stores the bag and whom enters the room. Disappointing at its least.

Owner Comment (Hide)
We understand how upsetting and frustrating this is for you and we are investigating to chain of events to try to ascertain what happened. Our manager Ryan has been in contact with you several times to learn more and continue moving forward in our investigation and we hope to resolve this with you by the end of this week.

Perfectly set near Union Square, the Hostel offers a lot of different activities (for which I unfortunately had little time). Staff was extremely helpful on any questions I had. Its a good separation between the party and breakfast area in the basement and the sleeping areas upstairs, overall it was pleasantly quiet in the dorms.

This was the best hostel that we have stayed at to date. The staff were friendly, there were good security measures within the hostel, our room was very clean and spacious (we stayed in a twin private room en suite, fresh bananas and oranges was served for breakfast. We also liked the fact that one could make their own pancakes. There were also cool activities available at the hostel during my stay there. We would highly recommend this place.
