The hostel had some really nice details like outlets in the lockers and small screens on the bunk beds so you had a little more privacy. There was also a lamp and outlets right near every bed. They also had free alcohol on Saturdays. However, they could have used some toilet brushes in the bathrooms as the bowls of the toilets sometimes could have used a little cleaning.

booked a tour with them to yosemite, the receptionist Natalie took the deposit, asked for my credit card details to put on record, and told me to pay the balance to the driver of the tour, and so i did,paying the balance in cash to the driver before i got off the bus. only until i checked my creditcard statement couple days ago, then i realized they charged me on my credit card again. called Natalia, she just told me to check with the tour company directly as the hostel is not involved.

Great hostel. The free breakfast has everything including delicious pancakes and fruit. There are also a lot of great free activities each morning and night including walking tours, gospel choir trip, and free drinks night. Despite being a really big hostel these activities made it really easy to meet people and see the best of SF. I would definitely recommend staying here.

Good location - only 10-15 minute walk away from Market Street and the trams and train station etc. Walking around the area at night didn't feel super safe, once you headed from the hostel in the opposite direction to downtown, but day time was fine. Bathrooms were clean, and the rooms were plenty roomy! (We stayed in a 4 bed dorm). Massive kitchen and heaps of room to eat and hang out which was good.

Awesome hostel, probably the best I've been to. Great staff, always willing to give advice and help you out. The activities organised by the hostel were also top notch, such as the walking tour and pub crawl. Good location and pretty central in SF - a little close to the Tenderloin (the shadiest part of SF) but you are definitely fine if you follow the staff's directions (i.e. walk to Powell St first before going down the hill to Market St).

Had a great stay here. The hostel is really fun the only thing that let it down was the toilets and shower rooms. They were not up to the cleanliness standard of the rest of the hostel and some toilets didn't have sinks in them.

Awesome hostel in great location, receptionist was a bit unwelcoming on arrival but other than that can't fault this place. The bar down stairs is absoloutley rocking at the weekend they have a big fridge where u can keep your alcohol and drink it in their kitchen/pool room area.

This is one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in. And I feel like the San Fran location is the best among the three chain USA hostels I stayed in. The other two are in LA and San Diego. Great facilities downstairs! Large kitchen and dinning room and there is even a bar and a movie room. Activities are great for meeting people and having a good time!

I cannot recommend this hostel highly enough . The staff are amazing , not to mention the place is clean and breakfast is provided . When you are travelling money is tight so having that free breakfast really helps. The pub crawl I went on run by ed was one of my best nights in the usa . Brian's walking tour was also a highlight ( even on a hangover ). If you visit San Fran defiantly stay at this hostel . You won't regret it .

One of the best hostels i've stayed at. The atmosphere is great with plenty of hostel activities to help you see the sites of San Fransisco. The facilities are amazing even including a theatre room! The staff were friendly and the place was clean. All good :)

Wish the staff had more activities to get people to interact better. The chairs in the common room are pretty uncomfortable. Bunks are flimsy. But not too bad.
