    I've stayed at a couple other hostels in San Francisco that were a little bit cheaper, trying to save money. I'm so glad to have found Adelaide Hostel! Its so much nicer than the other two hostels I've been at. Free breakfast, comfy beds with curtains, nice areas to hang out and talk to people and the neighborhood appears to be safer.

    I love that the hostel is downtown, but on a side-street, so the noise level from the city is very low. The staff was very friendly and helpful, including helping me find relatively inexpensive parking for my 3-day stay (parking is at a premium in SF). The place is kept very clean, and the lockers are plenty big to store all luggage in the room. The privacy curtains were a nice touch, and I appreciated the bed-light and the electrical outlet in my bunk area. I will definitely stay there again!

    This hostel has great location in the center of downtown. Rooms, bathrooms and common places are clean and stuff is very nice. For breakfast you can choose from fruits, toasts, cereals, coffee and others. For the price its the best deal hostel.

    Just great! Hostel provided dinner on Mon and Thurs free of charge. Tasty and free;) Rooms were well-thought out, easy to get a good night sleep. All shared sections remained clean. Safe neighborhood.

    super cozy place, felt right at home right away. lovely succulent garden outside of the kitchen is a nice getaway in the midst of the city. gets kinda sketchy a few blocks to the west, but like any city you gotta avoid some parts. always felt safe in the adelaide though. lots of bathrooms on each floor. 10/10 would recommend and will stay again next time im in SF.

    Stayed in a 4 person girls dorm, the bed was comfortable enough and decent storage space. The room smelled a little but was otherwise great.

    The staffs are helpful. Since the building is old, the decor is olden-dated decor, no lifts (carrying luggage up is a hassle) but luckily staff/guest lend a hand. Liked the privacy curtain. Guests mostly don’t adher to the rules, still noisy after 11pm and dorm-mate eating in the dorm.

    Great, centrally-located place to stay if you're on a budget and don't need all the bells and whistles.

    It was a last minute booking so I didn't have much choice. Bathrooms were well maintained. Good storage space under the bunk which also makes the bed a bit higher and difficult to climb upon if you are short. Individual power socket in each bunk was useful. Breakfast included different sorts of breads, bagels, english muffins, 5-6 varieties of spreads, jellies, butter etc., hot chocolate, coffee, tea and juice and fruit slices. Dinner was also served twice a week. No elevators! Good location.

    I checked out of this hostel after one night - and didn't even stay there that night. It is essentially in the Tenderloin area of SF and as soon as I arrived I was told by a number of locals that it wasn't safe for me to walk around the area. The bedroom also looked nothing like the photos and the other residents did not talk to me, they just hid in their bunks. Also overheard an aggressive phone conversation from another resident. Felt unsafe and unclean.
