Would highly recommend to all friends! We stayed in a private room with a shared bathroom. The bathroom facility's are always clean and still very private. Staff extremely friendly and the location central, a great base for exploring San Francisco.

This hostel was amazing. Recommend it for anyone who wants to meet awesome people and who want to party. Plenty of opportunities available to interact with other travellers. Hands down most fun and best hostel I've stayed in so far.

One of the best hostels I've stayed in regarding facilities and professionalism. The staff are engaging and helpful and there are a variety of events throughout the week to involve everyone. A little more expensive than some of the other hostels, but is well worth it.

Great hostel with activities going on every night. If you're traveling alone, there's definitely plenty of opportunities for making new friends. Clean rooms, nice with slightly isolated bunk beds which gave some privacy, staff were very knowledgable about the area and the town. The only downside I can think of is that it's marginally pricier than other hostels - but in my eyes those few extra bucks were definitely worth it.

thanks so much for your kind words! And for supporting our slightly higher prices. You definitely get what you pay for in San Francisco and with our newly renovated public spaces, expanded breakfast, large lounge, library, theatre and yoga studio, we think we offer more than anyone else! Happy Travels.

The location is a little sketchy, it is in downtown not the safest place.

It's unfortunate that you did not feel secure in our neighborhood. Lower Knob Hill, where we are located, is comfortable for most people. But everyone has their own level of comfort and San Francisco is a big city. We are surrounded by several high end hotels and a Marriott is being built next door, so for most people, the area is comfortable.

We booked a group dorm for 4 - room 310, now notoriously known as the haunted room, as we sometimes had an empty bed, ie a ghost :) Was really funny with the receptionists trying to figure out what happened and why people are checking in and out, but a ghost remained...What was even greater - the whole cheerful gang at the hostel would approach us as friends or just to take us around SF. Tidy and quite (even at night), one could find friends to play games with or simply chat 24/7. RETURNING!

It was a good location and fun atmosphere. However, it is lame that even at $50 a night you have to make your own bed. The pillow is so flat it is essentially useless. Also, in the 4 days we were there I don't think our room had been cleaned. If you are simply looking for a place to sleep, this is it, but not much more.

We regret that you did not find all aspects of your stay enjoyable. We agree on the pillows and have a bunch of new ones on order now. It's fairly common for people to make their own beds in dorms and we feel our higher price is for the greater value we provide with free walking tours, free wine and cheese night, lots of activities, a newly renovated hostel with a large lounge, library, theatre and now a new yoga studio. We also have friendly staff and try hard to make each guest feel welcome
