Great location, but there a quite a few steep steps to get up to the rooms, so be warned! Free breakfast is good, and free dinner nights are even better! Somewhat limited number of showers (3 per floor) so just be prepared to wait at peak times. All in all, would stay here again!
Fantastic location, just minutes walk to Union square, and close to a BART station. Good (if basic) free breakfast, big kitchen. Good hostel all round, would stay here again!
Hard to tell who works there and who is a guest... Pretty good location, 10mins by bus to Canal street and the French Quarter. We had a private room which was massive and clean/comfy, but we had to walk through a dorm to enter/exit which was weird. Overall a pretty good place to stay!
The hostel was okay, but not great. The room/bathroom were clean, but had no shelving to put stuff. We had the room right off the lobby, and the staff often played music/watched TV/loud conversations at all hours, which made it hard to sleep along with the 24 hour subway track opposite the hostel. The beds were so uncomfortable, thin mattresses and basically non-existent pillows, and everything is covered in plastic. Kitchen could use more bowls/cutlery etc. Our food was also stolen/thrown out.
I stayed in an 8-bed female dorm and despite being advertised as having reading lights in each bed, none of us did; one room light plus 8 people is pretty crappy. Otherwise, the room was clean and the bathroom facilities were very good (hot showers were awesome). I didn't use the kitchen but it was very large.
Awesome location! Just 2 blocks to the Pier and one block to the main shopping street. Lockers in the room were awesome, big enough for suitcases with shelving for belongings. Shared bathroom facilities weren't too great, virtually no privacy for showering. Some staff were great and some notsomuch. I'd stay there again though for the location.
Really enjoyed my stay at USA Hostels Hollywood! I stayed in a 6-bed female dorm with ensuite and it was awesome- bathroom was always clean, as was the room (that might be because us girls were tidy, though). The staff were friendly and happy to answer any questions asked and the nightly "all you can eat for $6" meals were great. Would definitely stay here again!
