    In no particular order: - classic no-frills Euro-style, don't expect sparkling bathrooms or thick walls, but beds are comfortable - $20 CASH ONLY key deposit - the staff was super easy-going about my late check-in and need for longer luggage-holding (which is just a shelf in the common area) - there was a woman in my room who had a cat..? - super conveniently-located near a BART stop, buses, and bike shares - not very many outlets per room for 6+ people, but plenty in the common area

    This hostel is so close to Market street where all the dazzle and buzzle is in San Fran. The public Transportation system can get you anywhere you would want to go.

    I have on occasion periodically over the last year been staying at European Hostel on Mina. I am glad and feel safe and respected with this new management. Prior Management was OK. I would recommend this Hostel to all who are trying to save money or traveling on a. Budget. It is near city center and staff are helpful, respectful and caring for all to have a safe and easy stay for all.

    It is very cheap and very dirty place for living. However, the location is very good, everything is close in a walking distance.

    The location for this place was fine. It was located mostly around the office or business district. The staff was nice enough to move my stay to the days I needed when I accidentally booked the wrong night on the website. I am very grateful that my money wasn't wasted. The place was very dirty though: The bathrooms were just dreadful and the kitchens were covered in crumbs and stains, and the rooms were a bit smelly as well. If the place is maintained and cleaned then it's ok for one night.

    With what you pay you cannot be surprised by the hostel. The location isn't the best but is close to attractions. I wouldn't advise female travellers to necessarily stay alone just because of the homeless population in such close proximity, ( not something that the hostel is to blame for of course). The atmosphere in the hostel is okay but not an environment in which you will necessarily meet lots of people. The amenities aren't the cleanest or modern/there are lots of people sharing bathrooms.

    Unkempt and unclean. Rags and cleaning chemicals just sitting on the floor in the hallways with no one using them. Staff was a mix with some being cordial, while others unwelcoming. Surprise $20 key deposit that has to be paid in cash. No sheets on the bed wen I checked in and other beds in the room left unmade. Location is near a Bart station but nothing of note around it. I would definitely caution women traveling alone as the area could be dangerous, especially at night.
