    It’s a good hostel for such a low price in SF. I expected less due to all of the negative reviews but was pleasantly surprised to find relatively clean facilities as well as dorm rooms. The reception staff on the first night of my stay was exceptionally friendly and helpful (I forgot her name) but on the second day there was a guy that just didn’t seem to enjoy working there at all. Pretty rude and not polite either.

    Overall good. Except the restroom is not clean. In the morning, the housemaid talked on phone really loud. I won't mind if its later in the day but this was still early.

    It’s cheap. So expect a cheap experience. They provide linen and if you need a towel, you have to ask for it. I noticed a rat trap in their main office during check-in. They do not accept early check-in and can only accept 3pm or until 11:59pm. They will give you a key (not a key card). They are old fashioned. The bedroom was meh. The restroom experience is gross. No hand towels, no amenities, just you and water (and hand soap)

    Hostess/Host seemed very rude, not only to me but to other guests. Hostess could not answer our questions about parking, not even an attempt. I was charged an upfront fee by this website, and was supposed to pay $85 in person; I was asked to pay ~$100 in person, PLUS a $20 deposit (that was refunded.)

    We didn’t have high expectations for when we arrived as the price was a lot lower than any other places we were looking at. Although, even for the money we paid it really was not acceptable. We had a six man dorm and it was tiny, and we couldn’t even fit in the room with our bags on when we arrived. The hostel has a horrible smell throughout the building and not a very good atmosphere. I think even for the small fares we paid per night we deserve a higher level of cleanliness than what we got.

    I felt uncomfortable there. The atmosphere was bad, the smell it’s awful, it’s not clean.

    I am sending a report to the city health department. This place is a health disaster! I am also sending a complaint to your agency-- concerning the Management at European Hostel---- who cancelled a previously booked (thru the website) reservation of 3/15-3/17 telling myself that they could not supply myself with the dorm room I pre-paid for and could only put myself in a much more costly private room. Although I objected, I had to take what was available and then upon entering the
