    Great value, super helpful staff. I booked a hostel for a day, and I ended up staying there for my whole stay in SF. All beds had curtains and two electric outlets & long shelves. Rooms, restrooms, kitchen were all super clean at all times. The free breakfast was impressive, lots of fruit, berries, great bread, Peanut Butter, Jam, NUTELLA, eggs, cereal, milk and more. There's also every thing you need to cook any meal you could think of, utensils, cookware, appliances. Quiet hours are from 10-7.

    I loved my stay at the Adelaide, will definitely come again! Full privacy curtains in the dorm and the awesome lounge were my favorite things about the hostel. Breakfast and location were perfect.

    Some of the floors and walls have seen better days which, at first, may leave the impression that the place is a bit run down but everything you need actually works perfectly. There is a nice mix of guests and beautiful common places to hang or work remotely. The staff are very efficient, friendly and will help with anything. Great value for money and really adds to the whole experience of the city. Special thanks for the free room upgrade🤗

    I was littler nervous about the entrance being in the alley but it’s well lit. That made me feel a lot more safe. The staff was friendly and enjoyed the breakfast. There are signs to wear a mask in common areas but the rules are not enforced. Our room was clean and our towels were refreshed daily. We really enjoyed our stay and would totally recommend!

    Location and Breakfast are really good. Although the smell of the place and the Rooms is not good, it seems like the smell of the Kitchen Goes everywhere, and the Carpet in the Walls and floor absorves this smell.

    Lots of stairs. Staff not as helpful as they could have been. Pretty dead atmosphere in communal area. Breakfast area was good and lively. Good location. 10 minutes walk from station.

    Recieved some kind of bed bug bites, Hooks inside the bunks would be very helpful, and outlets that had built in USB chargers are kind of standard now.
