    I keep my expectations relatively low for hostels in general, but this one exceeded all of them with flying colors. From the staff to the girls I shared my room with, it was all fantastic. Especially liked the privacy curtains for the bunks and free breakfast in the mornings!

    One night stay in mixed form and enjoyed my stay. They had curtains for every bed, which helped a lot with privacy

    Good central location so long as you bear in mind that it is near the tenderloin. Never felt unsafe though.

    The location is great as well as the free breakfast. Clean and organise. The personnel are very helpful and the bed is comfortable. Though, there is no elevator and I need to carry my heavy luggage up to the 2nd floor.

    The staff are super friendly and helpful, the breakfasts are great, you have all the basic necessary things, the curtains on beds are a great idea. I guess it's an old building, so there was a very damp smell in the room. The location is central and close to everything, but the neighborhood is a bit rough, and as a young woman travelling alone from overseas I wasn't feeling really safe. But San Francisco is an expensive city, so I guess it's a fair value for money for travelling on a budget.

    This hostel has a really great location and the free breakfast was definitely a plus but my experience there was unsettling. My bedding was changed 2 days into my 4 day stay, which was fine, however my tshirt on my bed was placed in the 'free' bin and my lip balm thrown out. The next night someone climbed into my bed while I was asleep!! Claiming they were just assigned the bed. My stay here was good for the minimum accommodations, but it felt unsafe and concerning.
