As a pair of senior travellers (70s+) we were delighted with our stay. The walking tour with Brendan was a highlight. We also found the breakfasts and kitchen very good features.

I stayed here only for one night. The place was ok. The staff was nice, responded to all my emails quite quickly and were nice while I was there. The hostel has a shuttle that takes you to the airport - so perfect if you need to catch an early flight.

Hostel staff were amazing. Very friendly and recommended great activities. Facilities were very conveniently located and centralised. Beds and bathroom were extremely clean and spacious. And the one thing this hostel had that set them apart, an elevator that was wasn't slow! Awesome times in this hostel...will stay here again next time in SF.

Great hostel! Big common room and kitchen area which is good because there can be a few people around at some stages. Free breakfast is great and staff are very relaxed and chilled but helpful all the time! Definitely would stay there again!

I think it's good that the hostel organises activities for guests but the choice of pubs in the pub crawl is a little odd. Who in their right mind would take a mixed group of people you don't know to a bar which is plastered with pornographic images and shows porn films?? At least two women in their 20s told me that they felt uncomfortable. I guess it shows the immaturity of staff who are unable to determine what might reasonably be considered offensive.

Had a brilliant idea stay, friendly and accomodating staff, great evenings entertainment ,which was great meeting point for the sole traveller, Sam was fun and very sociable. Movie theatre was great for days you just want chill and watch movie. Airport shuttle great idea too, maybe it is publicised somewhere in hostel, but if it is I didn't see it( only heard from a fellow traveller). Loved the free tea/coffee idea. Overall great memorable stay, I'm glad I stayed with yis, thanks to all

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, despite the fact that I usually prefer smaller intimate hostels. The events put on at night make it impossible to not meet people. Word of warning... avoid talking to people at the front steps or you'll never make it to bed; got caught out having too much fun both nights I was there. Beds are comfortable, big lockers, no complaints.

We didn't have good luck with the people who stayed in our room. One guy enjoyed sleeping in different beds especially mine (he was definitely on drugs and the room smelled like weed). After twice of changing my bed I went to the front desk. They said it happens all the time I should just go to the bed that isn't occupied. There was lots of stuff lying on all the beds, floor and table which they say it's normal. I don't think they ever clean out and check on the beds when someone leaves.

Excellent hostel but expensive.

The hostel is kinda in a weird spot, it's very close to union Square, but also very close to the tenderloin which is not a nice part of town.. this is my only criticism, it is placed better than most hostels in San Fran, its the pick of the litter, the staff are amazing, there is plenty to do within the hostel, the facilities are great, they are super super helpful!!! It is on the more expensive side, especially being a hostel.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! Great staff and facilities, and they had something fun going on every day - I was only there two days and went to a guided pub crawl, walking tour, and a karaoke night in the hostel. The common rooms are REALLY nice and clean. Only thing that could be improved is the parking, but I guess there aren't many options in the middle of the city.

Everything was up to my expectations including cleanliness and customer service. Only room for improvement is in terms of fixing lifts... They were very old, iron door of lift was very quick closing and fast enough to have yr hand/ body part getting caught up. Lift wasn't landing at the same ground level, when stops lift was staying above the floor level and that way making it difficult to load/ unload yr luggage.
