Double room had triple bunk bed. 4 person dorm was a bit cramped. Breakfast was nice and location of the hostel was very central. Questionable value for money on the double room. Dorm was reasonably priced. More

A great hostel, in a great location. Happy to stay and will come again! Had a private room which was lovely, clean and slept surprisingly well, it was very quiet at night even though the hostel was busy. More

This is a nice hostel if you don't mind being a bit out of the city center. Fishermans warf is really nice and you can easily walk to the golden gate bridge. Shared facilities such as the kitchen and common room are great. More

Very good value for money - although if I could change anything, I would have liked some sockets near a mirror, and also the 'no toilet paper down the toilet' seemed pretty unsanitary as we had to put used toilet paper in the bins. More

The TV room was out of service, cause somehow the power wire was missed. The staff didn't do anything about it, but say "sorry". More

I was in a 4-bed dorm. This was like a regular hotel room, so small (there were bunks) but quite secure. Also locked storage for luggage. The lower floor is devoted to music practice rooms, complete with drum sets and sound systems (free for guests if you want a place to practice!). The More

I loved the hostel! The bathroom was clean in the evening when I was taking a shower, but some people are quite messy so it could be dirty in the morning. Otherwise, great! More
