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.

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.

The hostel staff was fantastic. Everyone went over their way to help and please the guests. The breakfast included fruits, oats and bagles and all-you-can-make-pancakes. I joined two free tours: the bike tour (bike rental wasn't free) which was guided by Ed and the walking tour, which was guided by Brendan. Both of them did an amazing job. Super friendly, were able to tell random facts bout SF and always happy to help. B even took us to his fav bar :) would book again

I just hated that not all bath had shampoo and conditioners.. There was one night that I was running around in my towel from bathroom to another in search of it..

Extremely clean and organized. Great structure and service. Free pancakes on breakfast! Area around is unsafe, full of junkies - most dangerous region in San Francisco (Tenderloin neighborhood). However, it's Really close to Union Square, easy to access public transportation.

great hostel, staff were awesome. found the location a little odd. But we caught ubers mostly around the city as we were a group of 3, so it wasn't too inconvenient. shame that all the common areas are underground, wasn't the easiest place to meet people but still heaps of fun. walking tour was great.
