Definitely one of the better hostels I've stayed at - comfty beds, nice bathrooms, a good selection at breakfast and the vast majority of the staff were friendly and helpful. One thing I would say though is that some of the activities felt like a bit of a money-grab at times. I genuinely don't know where the money went and if it did cost that much to put the activity on, it shouldn't do.

In a very shady part of LV - didn't feel safe. The facilities are very basic too. The worse part is the owner though - he is deluded and self-aggrandising. If you believed him, the FBI, CIA, NSA and elements of very criminal syndicate in the world are after him apparently. His attitude towards women and his language about them is disgusting as well. As one of the other guests put it after he'd repeatedly insulted me for not believing his warped view of the world; "Don't mind him, he's crazy."

Not the best hostel, but not the worse either. The bed was comfty, the bathroom was good, the actvities were reasonable overall, but the breakfast was a bit basic and the location was so-so - well-placed for Fisherman's Wharf, Pier 39 and The Golden Gate Bridge, but a long walk or a fair bus ride away from everything else that's going on in San Francisco. If you don't mind walking and discovering a place (which I don't mind at all), that's fine, but make sure you bring comfty shoes.

Not the best HI hostel I've stayed at in America, but very good. Good location (although a lot of street noise at night), staff on the whole are great, breakfast sets you up for the day. More could be done to give hostellers some privacy and I think some specific bar crawl events would help to give a more social atmosphere, but, on the whole, a good hostel manned by good staff.

A comfy bed, a hot shower (if you pick the right one and it's free) and a reasonable breakfast every morning. All very, very basic though. There were no social activities planned as advertised though. The guy on reception, Tommy, was very helpful to me when I asked advice and made very good suggestions of areas to see, bars to frequent, etc, on the other hand.

Would definitely stay again. Great location. The staff were excellent too- friendly, helpful, informative and always with great suggestions on things to see and do. The social activities were also great- there are parts of Boston that I would not have seen if I hadn't taken part in the hostel's social activities.

Nice hostel. Staff were very friendly and informative. Very good location in the heart of the Entertainment District- centrally located with Chinatown and Little Italy to the west, down town a short walk away and two bust, bustling streets full of bars, restaurants, fast food joints not far away. Would say though that there are people staying there long-term, and thus, did kind of feel that I was an outsider passing through.

A mile from the city, so you have to walk in and walk back every day. If you need something during the day, you can't quickly go and get it. The attitude of the guy running breakfast in the morning was disgraceful- felt like you were being watched like a hawk and his dismeanour wasn't pleasant. The choice at breakfast- cereal or toast- wasn't great and tasted bland. Also, found that you could stay in more centrally-located hostels for less whilst over there. Better choices exist in Chicago.
